Watch Instinct 1 season online for freeThe main character of this series, played by Alan Cumming, writes books and conducts research. He is a very talented professor who has devoted his last years to science. Previously, the main character worked for the CIA, but decided to quit with state secret activities. True, the skills of men are needed by representatives of the police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In Manhattan, a terrible maniac-killer has wound up who commits crimes, the motives of which are completely impossible to understand. Police detectives found out that no victim is in any way connected with the previous one. In addition, at the scene of the crime, the unknown killer leaves a playing card that indicates the next victim. True, until the police determine who exactly faces death, the crime will already be committed. The main character, called upon to help the investigation, begins to make progress. He goes on the trail of the criminal. However, further events make the man doubt his conclusions.
Light to the point of primitiveness, unfortunately, too cloned in the storyline (the main character, the main character, the very circumstances of the crime were written off by 70%). Top Sources: Sherlock, Castle, Mentalist, Suspect, Bones, Elementary. The main character is a professor, at the same time a former CIA operative, a police consultant, a writer, in short, all at once. The fact that he is gay is not particularly embarrassing, since the couple rarely comes after talking in a bar (there was 1 kiss in 9 episodes). The ill-conceived plots are embarrassing, especially if the victim from another series is written off, but the murder is inscribed in a different series and inconsistencies begin. It is immediately clear that there is no budget: the meeting room, which was just empty, becomes an office in a minute, while the view from the window does not change. Some little things start from nothing and end with nothing. The corpses seem to have been taken from other series, the cuts are not where they should be according to the plot, there is no pathological anatomy, the process of collecting evidence in fact is not there, if they shoot without gloves from a pistol, then they look for the whole series who shot. Planks of suspects in general for the sake of appearance - some kind of crap and diagrams hang, such as two pictures from the crime scene and an anatomical image of the heart (which was cut out of the body right through the ribs). As a result, for those who have watched all the CSI episodes, Criminal Minds, Castle, Bones, Elementary, Sherlock, The Mentalist and with 10 smaller TV shows, it will be difficult to watch, you will spit constantly, but like a passing series when there is nothing new and wait a couple of weeks - it's fine. For the game 5 out of 10. Plot 5 out of 10. Detective component 2 out of 10.
Lightweight, pleasant to look at as a background. The heroes are beautiful, bright, stylishly dressed, and all this in beautiful New York. Yes, there are much better series in this genre, but you can also watch this once.In my opinion, the series for its beauty, charm and quality pulls on a solid 7-ku. I definitely recommend watching! For those who, according to the comments, are embarrassed by the topic of gays - it is not displayed there in any way. There are no kisses and bed scenes. Everything is nowhere more decent. From the same niche of TV shows, I would recommend, in addition to "Castle" and "Mentalist", and "White Collar" - the level of charm and style is off scale.
It amazes me that there is no "fantasy" in the genre graph. Again the girls, having watched TV series like "Moonlight Detective Agency", "Castle", "Mentalist", "Perception" and the like, decided to create their own, but everything should be glamorous. And who can be the best friend of glamorous girls, besides diamonds, of course, gay. So they did, the main character is a police detective (for drama - the death of the groom), her partner is a former CIA agent (for "well, how without them" - gay), her boss, also a friend (for tolerance - a black woman). Now mix thoroughly and shake - bon appetit. Bueee As always, about logic, at least an approximate reality, common sense ... forgotten I will not spoil you, for those who will still watch it, I will say this, there are TV series about police work that are very close to reality, for example Southland, although the action takes place in LA, and here is New York. Then "Blue Blood", in New York, there is just shown the work of the police at different levels: patrolman, detective and commissioner of the entire New York police (+ daughter prosecutor). Police stations, the course and procedure of the investigation, hierarchy, subordination are shown ... In the series "Instinct", you will not see anything like that, everything that happens on the screen is a figment of the creators' imagination. Therefore, in my opinion, the genre should be added to the line: fiction.
Another old-fashioned story about a woman detective and her assistant. In various similar series, there were already all kinds of helpers, including the devil, but here the scriptwriters did not think for a long time and came up with a former psychologist. And that there would be more differences and there were no love lines between the main characters, then the assistant must be gay. Who is not embarrassed not by the original, hackneyed plot - you can take a look. It is not yet clear whether something worthwhile will come out of this series, but for my taste, there are much more interesting and exciting series.
Not a bad show. Of those, watching which you relax. Nice characters and not boring, albeit no surprises, plot. He may be weaker than Castle or the Mentalist, but he has his own charm. The actors play on a level and it is very pleasant that there is no and cannot be a trivial love line between the main characters. Alan Cumming as the "psychopathic professor" is charming, although in my opinion his character is devoid of conflict. I hope that in the future the writers will reveal more fully the characters of the characters. On the whole, an extremely pleasant impression was left.
Friends, the series is awesome! The series has elements of detective, comedy. The actors cope with a solid 10. In the comments they write that gomosyatina is everywhere, well, this is people habitual in the 21st century. If you discard all the negativity and look at the root of the series, then everything is cool. The genre of detective is gaining momentum every day and it's cool, but there are similarities with Castle, but they are very insignificant. This series is a more vital professor here, not a loose richer, but a former agent. In short, you can say so than to write any heresy, it is better to go to the Seasonvar.ru website and watch this series and then you will understand. I can advise another detective series this is Shetland and Strike, in my opinion, very cool series. Good luck to everyone, take care of yourself.
I confess, I initially perceived this series as a Castle clone, either because of the nationality of the actress playing the main role, or thanks to the detective story, but after five episodes I draw the following conclusion - Instinct is better, if only because we subconsciously do not wait , when the main characters finally merge in the ecstasy of sexual intercourse, for this method of creating tension in the plot exhausted itself even in the days of young Mulder and Scully, and even earlier in the Moonlight Agency, the creators also clearly succeeded in combining a gay and a gallant former CIA agent with all the appropriate special training ...In the fifth episode, there was a clear tendency to develop supporting characters in the form of colleagues in the police station, and also a bookmark was made for a long story with a continuation in the form of the finds of a mysterious "free contractor" helping the GG in his police work. Total: keep it up guys !!! there are all the prerequisites for the series to become long and popular.
How worried I was when Castle and Bones ended. It seemed to me that some era of my life had gone with them. And suddenly, at the beck of American stereotyped production, Instinct came out. I decided to watch it because of the wonderful cast, but immediately addicts. It is light, relaxed, sometimes funny, with an uncomplicated plot, in general, such under which you can while away the evening without straining your convolutions. The similarity to Castle is given by the fact that the author is a writer, and his partner is a strong and strong-willed cop woman. We watch, enjoy and wait for interesting plot outcomes.
A week ago, the "Cunning" series began to appear, in which there was an interesting concept (the illusionist helps the FBI), but the pilot himself turned out to be weak. Mostly because the leading actors are so plain. In Instinct, the opposite is true. The idea of "a psychologist helps the police" sounds trite, but thanks to the actors (Alan Cumming and Bojana Novakovic, who eerily resembles a young Foster) the pilot looks easy and even interesting. Firstly, Cumming's character is not just a psychologist, but also a CIA agent, and secondly, he is gay (like the actor himself), and there will be no clichéd duet where sooner or later they will sleep. Here they are just colleagues. And while their duet looks great. They have chemistry, and a lot of humor. So far, this is a good application for a good procedural.
The topic is not new enough. As a rule, serials or films of detective stories, investigations, criminals, maniacs, and so on, arouse interest in viewers. Since most of us live a rather monotonous life, according to the type - work-home - home-work, and in our daily life, as a rule, there is not enough adrenaline, the reserves of which can be replenished without risking our own health, but from TV screens! I am very fascinated by TV shows, which seem to have one storyline and a developing story of the main characters, but on the other hand, each new series is a new episode. This format does not have time to annoy! Police, FBI, killer, victims, investigations, adrenaline and finally Manhattan - I think it will be interesting! We are waiting for unexpected turns and interesting interchange.
