Prepare to have your eyes man-handled by the internet, at the mercy of it’s band of creative little visual terrorists. MOST VIEWED ARTICLESSYDNEY EATS We're more than understanding of different wants, tastes and needs…MELBOURNE EATS Food in Melbourne? Mind Games, the midseason replacement show on ABC, depicts a business practice of manipulating people's decisions (granting an ailing boy surgery, voting on a bill) by use of cues and triggers that affect their mindset.
Critically acclaimed but ratings-starved showrunner Kyle Killen is back on TV with his third attempt at a show: Mind Games.
This of course is an ethically questionable area, and the pilot does a nice job and shows a lot of promise in the show by having its characters inquire about those questions and the possible drama of having to blur the line between what's morally acceptable in order to be successful.


The premise of a consulting firm that uses psychological manipulation to help people get what they want is fascinating, and the inclusion of Christian Slater makes it very entertaining.
The pilot episode has a little trouble creating emotional stakes for the characters up until the last fifteen minutes when a few curve ball storylines are thrown in to make the show a little more interesting.
The handling of the lead, Steve Zahn's Clark, and his bipolar disorder is not as strong as I'd like, though I don't know enough about the disorder to properly diagnose the show version, but it appears he spends the majority of his time in a bipolar high, never showing us the lows.
The second episode however reigns in the emotional weight, gives our main character Clark (played by Zahn) an emotional monologue in order to connect with the viewer, and cements the procedural element of the show firmly in place. The show is shaky, finding its footing in the beautifully shot playground of Chicago, but it has lots of potential.


At times the show can try a little too hard to be science-laden or educational, and definitely can suffer from piling on a little too much drama, but overall it's fun and different. I'm excited to see where it goes, and think that Killen may have finally found his balance between critical success and people actually watching his programs.FINAL VERDICT: SEE IT!
