The Irrational - The Barnum Effect

Three episodes in the show seems to have found its formula with the FBI being completely clueless about a crime, ready to place blame on the wrong suspect, and utterly reliant on Alec Mercer (Jesse L. Martin) to find the truth. The case of the week involves a plane crash authorities are all too willing to blame on pilot error, although thanks to some sleuthing by Alex, his assistants, and the victim's brother, someone far more sinister is eventually uncovered. Highlights continue to be how the show works in psychological experiments into the show's premise while the breadcrumbs of Alec's past tragedy and who his wife is currently aren't nearly as engaging.
