Okay - if you like cheese - this is for you.
First - Jason Van Der Beek. Now, I grew up when Dawson's Creek was on, so I have a certain appreciation for him. I also watched Don't Trust the B- in Apartment 23 where he played himself making fun of himself, and that was funny. So, I've got a certain fondness and appreciation for JVDB. Now - I also really liked CSI (the original - in Vegas).
This is nothing like that. The science is terrible, the technology is so far off base it's not even funny. "Search the deep web for (insert thing here)" - boom magical results! That's not how it works. If you want to learn about tech, this is not the show for you. If you like making fun of people who think tech works this way, you're in for a treat.
Some of you may have seen The Secret Life of Pets. Kevin Hart (as a bunny) has several lines "I feel heroic. And handsome. And a little wet. But I still look good." - It is because of these lines that JVDB has been dubbed, in this household, as Mr. Heroic. It's hilarious! (They make a joke about it in season 2 - Tell Elijah we have another door for him to kick down.) Basically - he does all the heroic stuff - including diving into a lake to save a baby trapped in a car. He is Mr. Heroic. This is the reason for watching the show. It's so worth it!
