Loved it! I saw the drama and the movie! The acting was brilliant. Both leads were exceptional and the storyline was most impressive. Though not scientifically realistic, it was a very entertaining drama to watch. Every episode was worth watching. It will leave you wanting for more. I love the song, "Kiss-shite". Its a very sweet song <3. I rewatched certain episodes of this drama and I barely rewatch anything. Overall, it read more is one of my most memorable dramas and I was obsessed over it for a while . Plus, the character was slightly imitated in the last episode of in Meitantei Okite, another drama.

I am a sucker for detective dramas so Galileo really filled in the my cravings. Galileo however is slighty different from normal Japanese detective dramas because it involves physics are basically science. Although the cases are very unlikely to happen in real life, I think at least I could learn something from the drama. For people who likes explanation on mysterious happenings, this is for you.

Detective Utsumi and Professor Yukawa read more has good chemistry. Although the slow romantic tension will kill stellar Korean drama watchers, its fine by all means in a japanese drama. Taking away romance and replacing it with more patnership and friendship are almost in 80% japanese drama. I think their relationship was developed enough and for romance suckers, you can have all you want in the 10th episode. Overall, it was a drama worth watching.

    I enjoyed this drama very much, I liked the way they don't focus on finding the murderer but the main concern was to find the way the crime was committed. Although they used physics as a way to reach their goals, I found the drama quite smooth and easy to follow with lots of intriguing cases.

    The acting could have been better, but it didn't get in the way of the episode. I purely loved this, it was funny, clever, and amusing. A nice, easy watch.
