Apparently, the recipe du jour to attract eyeballs for a mainstream studio production wherein the plot involves the internet, coding, encryption, intelligence agency databases, etc. is to have on board an idiot savant as a key cast member. Well, it's wearing thin. Instead of generating empathy and recognizable worthiness, the character is now more likely to have nuisance written all over him/her. Strange, whereas the so-called bad guys employ competent, talented, 'normal' people to construct IT infrastructure, the good guys invariably need a deranged wacko to reverse engineer it. Scriptwriting is evincing creativity bankruptcy. Season 1: just lame.

Rated 2/10. A confused and muddled plot, with extremely so-so acting to boot.

Note to myself: Don't bother with season 2.

I don't mind a shop-worn story (Monster corporation out to harm the public colludes with cynical government drones) (corporation name: Physanto. Could it be a combo of Pharma and Monsanto? Gee, I wonder). But I do like some originality or authenticity in the rendering, some good acting, clever dialogue, characters that you come to care about, things like that. Unfortunately, despite its slickness, "Code" just doesn't have any of that, even though they threw in an autistic co-hero, and for that reason I don't really care how the plot resolves in season 2. Maybe it gets better.

Interesting Australian tv series. Involves international intrigue, high tech and family relations. The two main characters are brothers: the elder, a sort of sleazy journalist and the younger brother, a "unique" individual - they never truly identify, but appears to have some sort of autism and is a tech genius. The setting is Canberra (the capital of Australia) and the Australian outback. For some reason, I thought it was set in New Zealand, but that may be just because of Lucy Lawless (Xenia!) is in it. SPL has season 1 (6 episodes) - think it ran for 2 years. Thought it was an interesting/entertaining combination of characters, story and exotic scenery. Good weekend viewing. Some swearing and violence, a bit of nudity, nothing overwhelming or distracting.

The beginning of a promising series. I enjoyed it!
