Intelligence - Action Packed Thriller Series from CBS
Intelligence is an action packed thriller starring Josh Holloway, who plays an intelligence operative, with an inserted computer chip in his brain, to enhance his knowledge and intelligence. This microchip allows him to access the worldwide web and all the information it contains at every given moment. He has access to numerous hidden information and intel due to the hacking he can perform through the inserted microchip.
Intelligence appears to be a classic CBS drama series, focusing on the hunky leading man, played by the wonderful Josh Holloway, backed up by two gorgeous female characters, Meghan Ory and Marg Helgenberger.
After a couple of reviews online, many people said that CBS should really try to climb out of its comfort zone and also try to make shows which wouldn't be as similar to the existing shows on CBS. Many people see this series as a mash-up of NCIS and Person of Interest. Even both actors from ABC's Lost are two major characters on both shows, Josh Holloway and Michael Emerson.
CBS has not given the show a regular air slot, since the show will air midseason and will probably have only a 13 or 15-episode run in the first season.

Josh Holloway and his previous TV and Movie Roles
Josh Holloway is best known for his role of Sawyer in ABC's hit series Lost where he played a deviant rebel, who was in love with the leading female character, Kate. At that time he was without doubt one of most popular Hollywood actors, at least those from the TV screen. He was, and still is, the object of admiration for many women, and men if I might add, since he is liked by all due to his rough nature, but kind heart. He also starred alongside Tom Cruise in the Hollywood 2011 blockbuster, Mission Impossible IV The Ghost Protocol. In Stay Cool he played alongside Winona Ryder, Hilary Duff, Chevy Chase and Frances Conroy in this romantic comedy-drama.
