overall a good crime/ mystery watch

this drama was surprisingly very well put together. i'm a sucker for crime solving police dramas, but usually the chinese ones i watch r a hit or miss. starting with the story, it's a well thought out storyline and the cases are solved quickly so u won't have to do much skipping. some of them r chilling tho. although there are some noticeable plot holes here and there, i found it pretty engaging. i rlly hated how they incorporated romance in the drama, especially at the end, i felt that they just used romance to tie the story together when all i wanted was their police squad to have a happy ending together. moving on to acting, the actors play their roles quite well and i rlly liked the cast !! i rlly ship the two hackers/ IP specialists they r so funny. music was very good too it fit the drama so well, erie but very beautiful. anyways it's a good watch for any crime solving drama lovers !!

Some eye-rolling moments, but mostly very good!

Surprisingly well-done and very engaging (true, not procedurally accurate, with eye-rolling moments like the profiler and forensics team participating in active crime scenes) police investigation, solving multiple murder cases. Each case lasts 2 or 3 episodes, long enough to contain some nice twists and turns, and finally culminating in the resolution of a murder mystery that ML/FL were involved in when they studied overseas in London years ago. For most of the series, the vibe is akin to CSI /Criminal Minds /Detective Conan, where characters are basically competently-crafted cardboard to deliver plot.

Toward the final 3rd however, the cases encroach closer and closer to the team's personal lives, and FL and ML come alive as their own individual persons. The story then explores their mutual attraction, mistrust, and growing trust, as either one or the other become buried in plots to trap them by various psychopaths.

The cases are melodramatic and unrealistic, but the shows' atmosphere, storyline, fast-paced plotting with no lag nor filler, and chemistry amongst the actors, sell the whole thing and makes for a pretty addictive popcorn of a show. Recommended!
