I watched this because Chris Fedak created it, and I loved "Chuck" back in the day. The pilot is currently available for free on Vudu. It's sort of like Silence of the Lambs, if Hannibal Lecter had been Clarice's estranged father. There are basically two series here: a mildly quirky police procedural, and a really twisted family drama. I found myself getting bored with the police procedural part, but sucked in by the family drama. The main character is really smart. But more interestingly, his entire immediate family is really smart. Michael Sheen has the juiciest role, as the main character's serial killer father. But his mother (played by Bellamy Young) is also really sharp, even if she doesn't always want people to know it. And his journalist sister is also a talented investigator. The pilot's greatest pleasures came from watching the main character read his family members, and watching his family members read him.
