Jenny’s Choice

minorityreport921smallThere are a ton of great premieres tonight, but one I’m excited for (which, I know, a lot of critics and viewers aren’t…) is the first episode of Minority Report. I was a big fan of the movie, so when I heard about the TV adaptation, I was thrilled and very hopeful. If you aren’t familiar, here’s what you need to know. Years – decades – in the future, there were three children known as “precogs.” An older girl and two younger twin boys, they could see every murder happen within a hundred-mile radius. The program they were involved in with the government was called Precrime. That was the movie.

Fast forward 10 years after the Precrime program was done away with, and the kids were all sequestered away on an island and have all grown up. But Dash (Stark Sands), one of the twins, wanted to use his gift to help prevent those awful crimes. So he moved to Washington D.C., and he teams up with Detective Lara Vega (Meagan Good) on the sly to try once more to instead prevent the crimes that she’s been cleaning up after.

I’ve seen the pilot and really enjoyed it. There’s some fun action, great chemistry between Dash and Det. Vega, and the future-tech is great. So far, the cast is a good mix of fun personalities and characters. Nick Zano stars as Arthur, Dash’s twin brother, while Laura Regan plays Agatha, the third precog. Also starring are Wilmer Valderrama, Li Jun Li, and Zhane Hall.

Kyle got a chance to talk with the cast/creators of Minority Report at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. You can find his video Q&As at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” in order to stop crimes before they happen, Det. Lara Vega teams up with a precognitive named Dash, who utilizes his ability to see the future.

Don’t miss the beginning of the future tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off, Life in Pieces, Scorpion, NCIS: LA, Blindspot, & Castle.
