Scorpion - Grow a Deer, A Female Deer TV review

After heading to Africa to help a nonprofit deal with a rise of poachers, Scorpion finds itself racing to protect an injured deer and a her newborn faun. The episode has plenty of action and humor, some of which works well and some… not so much. Toby (Eddie Kaye Thomas) in full dad joke mode is actually charming, but running gag of Walter‘s (Elyes Gabel)’s Cabe impression goes sour quickly as the team leader takes on the personality of the missing Cabe (Robert Patrick) who can’t leave the country due to his impending legal troubles.

Scorpion - Extinction television review

Scorpion returns for a Fourth Season with the first-half of a two-part episode that sends the Scorpion to Norway to plug a methane gas leak which their old frenemy Mark Collins (Joshua Leonard) believes could be the first domino to start an extinction event for all life on Earth. Leave it to Scorpion to bring out the most outrageous stakes ever for the start of a new season. Needing Collins help, the team heads overseas where the the “changed” man slowly begins to sew seeds of discord among the group including between Walter (Elyes Gabel) and Paige (Katharine McPhee). While the episode plays the character down-the-line without concluding one way or the other on how much he has changed, I’m fully expecting a full-on villain turn for Collins in next week’s conclusion (which would be a mistake as the character could be far more interesting in his current role as a potential recurring guest).

Scorpion - Monkey See, Monkey Poo TV review

Leaving Sylvester (Ari Stidham) back in the garage, the rest of the team heads to Africa in search of a monkey which scientists believe might be the key to stopping a dangerous viral outbreak from spreading any further. For Walter (Elyes Gabel) and his friends that means tracking down the monkey, running tests to find out what is making it immune to the disease, and then putting their skills together to solve the problem and save the day. Complicating matters for Toby (Eddie Kaye Thomas) and Happy (Jadyn Wong) are the marriage advice from Dr. Rizzuto (Penn Jillette) forcing Toby to recognize his fiance’s faults as well as her gifts. Thankfully, this doesn’t interfere with either the mission or the pair’s impending wedding.

Scorpion - Dirty Seeds, Done Dirt Cheap television review

A mission to Greenland to fix world’s seed trust turns unexpectedly dangerous when Happy (Jadyn Wong), Sylvester (Ari Stidham), and Cabe (Robert Patrick) are all exposed to spores which begin to make them individually hallucinate their deepest fears (which turn out to be more cute than macabre). For Cabe this means getting stuck in a sitcom where the age difference between he and his latest lady friend becomes the stuff of canned laughter. For Sly it means being scared by a room full of hallucinatory chickens. And Happy finds herself back in the orphanage where no one wants to adopt her.

Scorpion - Sharknerdo television review

Taking on a job on the high seas in search of sunken treasure leads to Walter (Elyes Gabel) and Paige (Katharine McPhee) becoming stranded on wreckage after their boat explodes leaving them at the mercy of the ocean. Oh, and then the sharks show up. With the help of Sylvester (Ari Stidham) and Happy (Jadyn Wong) working from home, Cabe (Robert Patrick) and Toby (Eddie Kaye Thomas) are able to find the stranded sailors, but with boat issues of their own and a frenzy of sharks attacking their stranded friends, the rescue just became far more complicated.
