Josh Holloway returns to TV in CBS‘ Intelligence. Playing Gabriel, the first human with a supercomputer microchip in his brain, he is able to access and hack information anywhere at any time, thus becoming the most important piece of technology the country has ever seen.

There was frequent applause and laughter. Here are three things to know about Intelligence. Read more »
CBS brings its own version of a futuristic drama series where man is the machine with its new show Intelligence.  Lost‘s Josh Holloway plays Gabriel, a man who is organically connected to the world‘s information grid  (telephone, internet, and satellite) using a chip implanted into his brain. From tapping into satellite feeds to hacking into enemy systems, Gabriel can mentally process any type of Intel, making him the perfect government agent. One of the ways he shows off his new abilities in the First Look video is his use of facial recognition. Just by taking one look at a person, he can visually pull up every documented record of their life - criminal records, text messages, test scores, and the like. Described as a "super spy who has a unique superpower" by Executive Producer Tripp Vinson, Gabriel is the all American hero that doesn‘t always play by the rules.  Read more »

CBS‘s new show Intelligence hit the ground running in its series premiere.  As promised in the preview, we see Gabriel (Josh Holloway) trekking through the Himalayas, where he was sent to deliver a computer virus. He stops in a clearing, taking off all of his gear to look at the big satellite in the distance. As the Internet chatter fades in, you already know he‘s tapping into it.The info he‘s receiving manifests all around him in bits and pieces, from criminal records to a large room where people are frozen in time. The focus goes to Amelia Hayes, a sweet picture of her and Gabriel floating across the screen. Instead of the sweet face smiling in the picture, we her frozen, holding a rifle. Before we get anymore info on who she is and where she is, his downloading is interrupted when he is captured by men with guns.While being interrogated by a man speaking very good English, we learn that Gabriel tapped into their information systems. They tracked the signal to him but of course couldn‘t find any electronic equipment on him. They ask him where it is and Gabriel responds by telling him about the married girl he gets coffee from -- information he had no way of knowing otherwise. While his captor is thrown off his game, the digitally locked door is opened. Gabriel makes a Jason Bourne type of escape, taking out a few men before running into the forest. He seems to know exactly where he‘s going until he comes to a cliff. Realizing he has no place to go, he takes the crazy route -- off the cliff into the rushing waters below. Read more »

Like many people who love technology driven action shows, I was psyched when I watched the previews for CBS‘s new show Intelligence. Besides the really cool concept of a man with a computer chip in his brain, I was excited to see two of my favorite actresses Marg Helgenberger (CSI) and Megan Ory (Once Upon a Time) back in action. I tuned into the premiere and, like many premieres, it was less than perfect but promising nonetheless. I was willing to tune into the next episode.Now that we‘re five episodes in, I‘m starting to lose faith in that this show will see a second season at the rate it‘s going. Here are five things we‘d like to see happen this season that just might save itself from cancellation.  Read more »
Gabriel and Riley are sent out to save the world once again on Intelligence, but in "Patient Zero" the threat is worse than another human. It‘s a deadly virus! Is it worth possibly exposing America‘s top weapon, Gabriel, to the virus to save lives? Read more »

In last week‘s episode of Intelligence, we dealt with a man-made (and very contagious) virus. Just when we thought the dangers couldn‘t get any crazier, Gabriel and his team are up against another tiny but dangerous threat -- nanites that get into the blood stream and cause fatal damage. Tonight‘s target? The world‘s top scientists, who meet their death by inhaling a small container of dust sent to them. Not only is Dr. Cassidy the key to helping stop this really smart bad guy, but he‘s also a target. Read more »

The season 1 finale of Intelligence jumps right into the action of last week‘s episode. A hurt Gabriel is on the run with Riley and Mei Chin is in tow. Going to the hospital or a government safe house is out of the question, so they go to the only place where anyone would feel safe -- Gabriel‘s mom‘s house. The ex-army field nurse tends to his gunshot wound on her kitchen table and Mei Chin takes his mind to a render of Governor Christy Cameron giving a speech. Another primary win could send Cameron to the White House as president. Before Mei Chin high-tails it out of there, she tells Gabriel that the same government people who tried to kill them are going to kill the governor. Read more »
It‘s a good rule of thumb that if a show wasn‘t one of the 18 that CBS renewed in mid-March, the odds of another season were bad. On Saturday morning CBS cancelled five of its freshman shows while renewing the long-running procedural The Mentalist.  Read more »
