"With A Story Even More Firm, "Minority Report" is Finding Its Exact Point to An Attractive Spectacle"
23 April 2016 | by pipecaxSee all my reviews

After four chapter without bases solid in its story, the show has undergone an arduous effort to find a real plot, so they have had to delve much more on the personalities and abilities of each character in unitary, and with "The Present" I can deeply affirm: Dash and Vega are a good acting couple. The mystery, why closed pre-crime? It is still uncertain, but the secrecy with which are handling each of blind spots is really attractive. The series still has many flaws in each of the parameters established however is struggling to stand.

This Minority Report Review contains spoilers.

The plot twist of this episode despite being eye-catching, as always, its end is terrible. Series nowadays need a variation in their minds, the public is already tired of the clichés and monotonous ends. This the main problem of the series, its ends.

Lara Vega is friend and assistant of Dash (one of the three precogs). Each episode both come together to save someone from the death. This time, the game is different, and as the episode progresses, it is revealed that the next victim is Vega, unknowingly, she enters a house full of dangers, but with a sentimental and emotional undercurrent about the death of her father, in last years.

The union of Vega with Dr. Wally is the point that used to keep faithful to the film, full of fantastic elements futuristic and unmistakable method to slow down a little the visions of Dash. While it is true, many said that the performance of Meagan Good was loose, she has stolen my heart and not only that, also the full show, this episode gives firmness and support to her, we needed this to deduce which Vega is our main actress in the show. All actors have the possibility of moving hearts themed as emotive as the family and love, and "Good" mixed both, to try to soften our soul with that scene of happy birthday. Taking into account the great but affective final plot twist, the moment in which she comes to the house, is quite interesting.

"Minority Report" I like more and more and more. It was necessary to have more time with the series to give us realize that we have a great exponent of the genre Sci-Fi, obviously, with many errors and things to improve, but with respect to other shows within the genre, this has been the best I've seen. Fox haven't to cancel some episodes, knowing the potential and strength that this series has.

"MR" has left behind the loose episodes, now is a great swirl of elements, the father of Vega, the cases that are missing, save more murders, and possible Vega's actions to do to try to reopen the famous bath of milk, if the puzzle already is taking shape.
