I wouldn't say I'm bored with it.  I think it is okay, and I like some of the characters/actors.  I just haven't found it remarkable enough to comment on.  I'm not really sold on the female lead though.

Yeah, the last victim's circumstance was not explained at all.  I was expecting some secondary device.

So, what are we to make of Chekov's auto-immune disorder?  I suspect it will make another entrance at some crucial moment, allowing the Bone Collector to get away for another episode.

Since that camera system works so well, why not equip each of his team with it, and multiple monitors back at his house?  Amelia seems to be on the border between competent officer and scared of everything.  She could use some backup in the field.

The Bone Collector seems to have an excellent knowledge about all the workings of the various infrastructure. He's been in town only a few weeks (I know he lived there a few years earlier), but he knows how to disable the subway cameras and knows where his targets will be every day.

That is just villain handwavium, the same way that every computer hacker can breach any computer system in the allotted time when someone has a gun to their friend's head.

Why couldn't the 3rd victim lean back on her own? Is it a balance issue? 

From what I could see, the chair was tipped forward and there was a thin metal rod going from her chest to the floor, propping her up. If she moved, the rod would slip and she would fall forward strangling her. Her body was thoroughly tied to the chair. 

I like the show, not a lot, but all I really need is for what happens to make sense. Lincoln's superpower of seeing things in the air could be jazzed up a little bit, something like what happens when Shaun from "The Good Doctor" does the same thing. Maybe sometimes have items spin real fast like a slot machine wheel until it lands on an item he is looking for. Something to let use know his brain works several times faster than ours since he no longer has to think about having sex.

Ah, thank you. I missed the chair, I thought she was kneeling

Yes. The only part I liked in this episode was when the one guy yelled at and bitched out Lincoln for not listening to him when he told Lincoln to wait before going into that warehouse, meaning it's Lincoln who's the dumbass and it's his own fault he's crippled now. I give that speech a big YEAY.

I also noticed Lincoln's right hand moving as he rotated his chair. Busted!

I think it's kinda boring because we know who the bone collector is, the only story line is how they are going to catch him.

Yeah...the show is kind of dull in that we know they will catch him...and when I find myself wanting to see more of the Bone Collector and his life with his wife...or wonder if anyone found her friends that he killed, instead of cheering our hero squad, this show is in trouble. The lead actor is so over the top bad that reminds me of Courtney Vance but with NO charisma or acting chops. It's hard to play a role that Denzel played but man, the guy is NOT selling it..and he remains the weakest part of the show.

Is this show a mini-series? Now that the Bone Collector himself is the enemy, I can not see how the season will conclude with the Bone Collector NOT being caught or killed. If he is not, then the next season would be so incredibly unbelievable, as it happens with other shows with one villain.

I know that it is just a TV show and something for us to enjoy. However, I have my questions regarding the Bone Collector just as I had with Dexter. How does he afford all of these? He is a forensic specialist, it seems. Does he make a lot of money doing what he does in his daily life? How did he have access to hippopotamus tusk and fresh meat of a protected turtle? How did he manage to disable cameras in the station? How did he enter the tavern and put all the CO2 tanks? And he must have an incredible flexibility in his day job that he could move from city to city towards New York as he likes. Lastly, he has an incredible cellar with more than a lifetime of wine supply if he only lives with his wife.

As for team Lincoln, the technology depicted is close, even if not quite yet, to being as incredible as the technology depicted in CSI franchise or in Bones. Not good. Unbelievable technology in a non-sci-fi shows does not appeal me.

The Following called.  They want their plot lines back.

IMO, the two lead actors are awful! And I can hand wave a lot, but Lincoln knowing EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING is really taking me out of the show.  Just once I want to hear him say "I don't know...can someone Google it?" Michael Imperoli is way too good to be wasted on this garbage.
