42% Tomatometer 48 Reviews 75% Audience Score 500+ Ratings Eccentric genius Walter O'Brien leads a group of brilliant misfits who constitute Homeland Security's new think tank, helping defend against the high-tech threats of the computer age. The team -- dubbed Scorpion -- includes behaviorist Toby Curtis, mechanical prodigy Happy Quinn, and statistics guru Sylvester Dodd. While comfortable with one another, the team members struggle with understanding life outside their circle, so when they need help translating societal cues, they rely on the skills of Paige Dineen, a woman with a gifted young son.

Typical procedural plotlines and boring characters using a distracting amount of geek-speak make Scorpion a forgettable show without sting.

Scorpion: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Rob Sheffield Rolling Stone It's a genuine hoot: Any show that can unite Katharine McPhee and American Pie's Eddie Kaye Thomas (Fiiiiinch!) has the right to the fun-cedural crown. With its light touch, Scorpion might take off. Sep 30, 2014 Full Review Scorpion: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Alan Sepinwall HitFix There are shows this fall that I expect to be much better in the long run than Scorpion, but there aren't many pilots I ultimately enjoyed more -- I even genuinely pumped my fist at one point. Rated: B- Sep 23, 2014 Full Review Scorpion: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Tim Goodman Hollywood Reporter If the series can live up to the backstory of its real-life inspiration that would be fantastic. Sep 23, 2014 Full Review Scorpion: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Tay Yek Keak The Straits Times (Singapore) This show is ridiculous but nevertheless fun and very easy to watch. Sep 13, 2016 Full Review Scorpion: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Dave Walker Times-Picayune I liked it way more than I expected, maybe because the characters didn't first live in a comic book. Nov 11, 2014 Full Review Scorpion: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Kristin Dos Santos E! Online This show about a gaggle of genius who save the world is pretty fast-paced and thrilling.

Ruckus A Some of the 'situation' and moreover the 'solutions' in the plots are just eyerolling.. Amusing first two seasons but by the 4th.. it's almost cringe worthy. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/03/23 Full Review Joshua M -Lazy writing, plot and characters are too predictable (not engaging).-Lots of rhetoric against neurodiverse people (people with autism/ADHD, calling their conidition "not normal").-The show's fanbase is friendly. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/13/23 Full Review Richard M I love scorpion. We have become addicted to this show on paramont plus. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/23 Full Review Raymond S I've only watched a couple episodes but that was enough to irritate me. The characters are pretty likable but it's obvious that no one on the set is a genius. They're wrong about so much basic science. And the fact that they keep pointing out that they're supposed to be geniuses seems like they think everyone else are idiots. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/01/22 Full Review Max D A show about geniuses, made by really ,really stupid Hollywood people.So Bad it hurts! Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/24/22 Full Review Marty S Absolutely Amazing. This programme is funny, exciting, has loveable characters, great acting. It has it all.
