Stitchers follows Kirsten, who has been recruited into a government agency to be "stitched" into the memories of people recently deceased to investigate murders and mysteries that otherwise would have gone unsolved. Cameron, a brilliant neuro-scientist, assists Kirsten in the secret program headed by Maggie, a skilled covert operator. The program also includes Linus, a bio-electrical engineer and communications technician. Camille, Kirsten's roommate and a computer science grad student, is also recruited to assist Kirsten as a "stitcher".Written by
Well, this is another sci-fi-ish series with the unoriginal idea to examine people's memories to find clues that could help prevent a crime like a bombing. Instantly my mind went to "Source code" (because in the pilot is about hidden bombs too), but if you count that these memories are from ...dead people you may also have an iZombie rip-off (which I stop seeing as I got bored).
There is a secret federal Agency, of course. And a special lab. And some Special hackers and scientists. And the heroine is ...special, with some form of brain dysplasia (like maybe the producers???). And everything is ...special BUT the problem is doesn't feel like it.
Emma Ishta, the lead actress, looks like a cross between a tall Scarlett Johansson and Taylor Swift but she is annoying as @#$&@. A pretty good reason NOT to see the show.
Technically also is sub-par. The graphics during the flashback are uninspiring and you've seen it before a 1000 times.
So. What is the target audience for this? I'm not sure. But I'm pretty sure I'm not in it. I suspect most of you too...
