Last week, we had an exclusive opportunity to watch the first episode of Scorpion, a high-octane drama that is inspired by a true story of eccentric genius Walter O’Brien, and we had a splendid good time!

Our Personal Opinion of Scorpion

The first episode of Scorpion is truly awesome and you can expect lots of drama and action! It is also extremely interesting to note that Scorpion is inspired by a true story about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien, who saved the world several times, hacked into Nasa computers at the age of 13, and has an IQ of 197, way higher than Albert Einstein’s IQ of 165!

“According to Walter O’Brien, he estimated that 70 percent of the pilot’s plot actually occurred, although he predicted that what viewers believe is true probably isn’t and vice versa.”

The pilot [first episode of Scorpion], which airs on 22 September 2014, was directed by Justin Lin, who directed some of the “Fast & Furious” movies and is set to direct the next film in the “Bourne” series. The characters are based on Walter O’Brien and the people he works with, and the writers have changed the names and cities but episodes depict things that happened, Walter O’Brien said.

If you are a television addict whom have the likings for some action and drama based on a true story, Scorpion is a show you must watch! We trust that you will enjoy this show as much as we do!

Synopsis of Scorpion

Scorpion, inspired by a true story, is a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits who comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age. As Homeland Security’s new think tank, O’Brien’s “Scorpion” team includes Toby Curtis, an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru.

Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo, who shares a harrowing history with O’Brien. However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with each other’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen, who has a young, gifted son, to translate the world for them. At last, these nerdy masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises, while also helping each other learn how to fit in. Justin Lin of The Fast and the Furious directs the pilot episode.

Scorpion premieres on 23 September 2014, Tuesday, at 9:00pm [within 24 hours of the U.S broadcast] on RTL CBS Entertainment HD and you can watch it on SingTel mio TV Channel 318 and StarHub TV Channel 509.

One of the challenge for the evening during the launch was to eat the cockroach pupa.

Yesterday, we were at The Walking Dead Zombie Pop Up Cafe that was specially constructed for the Race The Dead Running Event, Singapore’s first ever 5K Zombie Run, at Sentosa Siloso Beach and it was quite an intriguing experience.

If you’re wondering what’s on the menu, here it is! All the food and beverage items were specially prepared by the awesome crew from Kerbside Gourmet.

Of all the items that we have tried on the menu, we like Victim 13 Cupcake the best and apart from food, blood beverage was also served to over 5,000 survivors of the Race The Dead event.
