cut out the background music, it is annoying
David Braun says
Loved the books. The show is ok but the problem is I keep thinking of Denzel Washington in the movie who is simply a better actor, not that Russell Hornsby is bad.
I love the show and I hope it comes back. It’s a real nail biter and will keep you on the edge of your seat even if you watched the movie. Please give it a chance!
DO NOT CANCEL!!!!!! LOVE THIS SHOW, YOU ALWAYS CANCEL THE GOOD ONES
Patrick P Farnum says
The comparison to Denzel Washington is unavoidable. His Lincoln Rhyme was arrogant for sure, but there was more to it than just someone who was angry because he was stuck in a broken body. The version that Russell Hornsby gives us, unfortunately comes across (to me) is someone is just obnoxiously arrogant… someone who always wants it known that he’s the smartest one in the room and you better not forget it!! I like the show, but I’m wondering if they aren’t setting themselves up for failure. For example, Lincoln met ‘The Bone Collector’ at that forensics get together, so if he has such a great ability to recall minute details about a city as vast as New York, how is it that he can’t look at that photo and sift through his memories and come to the conclusion that, “Hey, I remember where I’ve seen that guy before!”?The title itself is a problem because we can’t be 5 years down the road and they still are hunting for the Bone Collector and the show has just devolved into ‘the serial killer of the week’ scenario… which seems to be what is slowly happening in this initial season! But let’s see what happens… it’s now up to the powers-that-be to decide if this lives on or dies a 1 season death!
They can still bring a close to the Bone Killer and keep the show going by solving other new high profile cases. I seen the movie and I loved it. I always thought it should become a series. I hope they keep it running.
Please don’t cancel this show, it’s different & I’ve never seen the movie or read the books.
Diana Rebel says
I hope they move on to the 2nd book in the Lincoln Rhyme series. The author wrote 14 Lincoln Rhyme books.
Pat Carter says
Hope it returns
Rod Kirkner says
