A series with a sting in its tale! Scorpion starts 22nd November
By James Whittington, Sunday 29th October 2017

Inspired by a true story, Scorpion is a high-octane drama about an eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits, who are the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age.

As Homeland Security’s new think tank, O’Brien’s Team Scorpion includes Toby Curtis, an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru. Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo, who shares a harrowing history with O’Brien. However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with one another’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen, who has a young, gifted son, Ralph, to translate the world for them. At last, these quirky masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises while also helping one another learn how to fit in.

In season 1, a crisis at LAX leaves dozens of airplanes unable to land and the team of misfit geniuses is called to rescue, The Governor calls on Team Scorpion when his daughter is mysteriously “bio-hacked” with a deadly virus and has only 24 hours to live, Team Scorpion heads to Las Vegas for a simple casino job but a robbery leads to Walter’s arrest and the rest of the team is left to clear his name, and a case gets personal for Team Scorpion when three convicts break out of prison and one of them is a brilliant hacker who was forced to help the others steal billions online.

Scorpion starts November 22nd at 7pm on CBS Action.
