We liked the set-up of Chaos. It’s about a team of CIA agents who do what they want, and to hell with the consequences. But they have good hearts, actually get stuff done, and value human life. We know, we know. For a show about the CIA, that’s not very realistic (Just kidding CIA, if you are reading! You guys are the best!) They would get fired, but they have good political connections. The pilot opens with adding a new guy, who was supposed to be a mole for the boss, but of course just becomes one of the guys.
It was sometimes funny and there was some action. We already like some of the characters (the Human Weapon and the Scottish guy). The main female so far isn’t very interesting or charismatic, and that’s a disappointment, but we are willing to give it time. It's also rare to see a Hispanic man as a main character on network TV, so that's cool. We've seen that actor be funny on a lot of shows (Scrubs, Ugly Betty), so he's paid his dues and deserves a lead.
It wasn’t fantastic, but we like the premise and execution well enough to give it more episodes. There's promise, if it doesn't get canceled in two episodes due to its low ratings. We will watch next week.
Episode Grade: B-
