        she knows every test in the book, can identify any substance or make of object, etc. etc., simultaneously, as well as overpower and bind a much larger man who's attacking her. All while keeping up her incessant prattle. I also dislike Gibbs' blatant favoritism toward her. Heck, I dislike GIBBS!

          NCIS is fairly well done, imho.  I appreciate how she can be stumped and she'll keep digging until she gets an answer.

          I really like Person of Interest, though the TIA subtext is exactly what the diarist is complaining about.  In this series, the computer has enough of a mind to know the good things and to counter, ever so slightly, the power mad ambitions of those who would use it to dominate the world.  Good things done on a case-by-case basis, and there's the usual wondering about whether someone is a victim or villain.
