I've come to like Intelligence a lot. It really did have a poor premier episode. I darned near gave up on it. They threw too much at us at once, too fast, & with little explanation as to what was going on or to anything about the characters. But I stuck it out for another week or 2 and found it was a really good show. I like the stories, the characters & the actors/actresses.
I think a lot of people saw the premier & just threw in the towel. For those who didn't, they found out it improved dramatically.
This goes to show what a bad premier can do for a series. I hope TPTB let it stick around to grow an audience, maybe of people who gave up too soon.
