Synopsis of “Intelligence”

A dramatic thriller starring Josh Holloway as Gabriel, a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel is the first human ever to be connected directly into the worldwide information grid and have complete access to Internet, WiFi, telephone, and satellite data. Gabriel can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies.

Leading the elite government cyber-security agency created to support him is Director Lillian Strand, a straightforward and efficient boss who oversees the unit’s missions. Strand assigns Riley Neal, a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his own appetite for reckless, unpredictable behaviour, and his disregard for protocol. Other skilled members of the Cybercom team include Chris Jameson and Gonzalo “Gonzo” Rodriguez, two very resourceful federal investigators. The brains behind the design of the chip is Dr. Shenendoah Cassidy, whose son, Nelson, is jealous of Gabriel’s prominent place in his father’s life. As the first supercomputer with a beating heart, Gabriel is the most valuable piece of technology the country has ever created and is a U.S. secret weapon.

“Intelligence” will debut on Singapore television on mio TV, Channel 318 [RTL-CBS] on Tuesday, 11 February 2014, at 9.55pm.

Our Review of “Intelligence”

While the concept is not brand new, it is quite interesting and it would definitely interest viewers of all ages. However, whether this tv series can pull off and keep its ratings is altogether a different matter and it will depend on how well-scripted the show is and whether it can keep up to the audience’s expectations of having a tight-knitted story.

We are pretty hopeful that “Intelligence” has the potential to sustain as we really enjoyed watching the first episode that was filled with action, anticipation, and suspense!
