Scorpion: Not a Huge Sting in the Tail

Scorpion: Not a Huge Sting in the Tail

Scorpion on CBS started off not as a huge sting in the tail but with a pretty impressive plot for its first show. The cast, which is mostly made up of younger actors, has Robert Patrick to represent the old guard and Elyes Gabel (Game of Thrones, Body of Proof) plays real life character Walter O’Brien. The 197 IQ genius is touted on the show as being the fourth smartest man in the world. The series is based upon O’Brien’s true exploits starting with the show’s opening scene where the 12 year-old Walter is caught after hacking the NASA computer system.
