Instinct (CBS) – Premieres 18th March
When the NYPD discover that a serial killer is leaving a calling card linking him to a book written by famed author, and university professor Dr. Dylan Reinhart. Detective Lizzie Needham decides to recruit him to help hunt the killer down.
After initially turning down the offer, Dylan is persuaded to change his mind after his agent trashes his new novel, and tells him working with the police may reinvigorate his work. So as Dylan becomes Lizzies first partner she’s had since the death of her last one, she starts to realise that Dylan has access to information revealing that he used to be a CIA agent. And taking on this case Dylan has broken the promise he made to his husband that he would not return to that life, leading to him trying to keep his new job work secret from him.
As a procedural crime show this one is like a mix between Perception and Deception. Though the wise cracking moments in this jar against the story making it feel a bit of a mess.
