不一样的新美剧:《智能缉凶》

2014-01-20    来源:21st Century    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

Clever new concept

The past few weeks must have been hard for fans of US TV series, because most shows took a long holiday break. But as we’ve entered 2014, not only can we continue following the series we’ve loved for years, we can also look forward to a few new series starting mid-season.

过去几周对于美剧迷们来说可谓十分难熬,因为大多数剧集都因为圣诞假期的关系而停播。但随着2014年的来临,我们不但可以继续追那些钟爱多年的美剧,还能期待着季中档期“新血液”剧集的到来。

Intelligence, the latest offering from CBS, stands out among the first new network series of 2014. According to Nielson ratings, the premiere on Jan 7 attracted 16.6 million viewers in the US, making it the most-watched premiere of a new series during the current television season.

美国哥伦比亚广播公司CBS最新剧集《智能缉凶》在2014年的首轮网络电视新剧中脱颖而出。根据尼尔森收视率显示,1月7日该剧首播时全美观看人数达到1660万,成为目前当季新剧中首播收视冠军。

Why did it get off to a great start?
为何《智能缉凶》一经开播便迎来开门红?

First, it brings novelty. The show is filled with high-tech gimmickry, led by a dazzling effect that allows our hero to stroll through a 3-D version of his own imaginings.

首先,该剧足够新颖。剧中到处都是高科技噱头,首屈一指的便是可以让男主人公在自我臆想的3D影像中漫步的炫酷特效。

Still, originality isn’t everything. A good cast and a good design are also indispensable for a weekly escape. Much of the credit for its entertainment potential goes to actor Josh Holloway, the former Lost star.

当然,创意并不能说明一切。强大的演员阵容和巧妙的剧情设计对于周播剧来说都是不可或缺的。这部剧的最大魅力来自于曾出演过热门美剧《迷失》的男星乔什•哈洛威。

In Intelligence, Holloway plays Gabriel, a war-hero-turned super-soldier. Thanks to a microchip implant, he can hack into almost anything with an electric brain. He and his chip are extremely valuable government property. So valuable, the head of the elite secret agency that employs him recruits a Secret Service agent to protect him.

在《智能缉凶》中,哈洛威饰演曾经的战斗英雄、现在的超级战士加布里埃尔。由于大脑被植入了一枚微芯片,他几乎可以潜入所有的电子设备。加布里埃尔以及他身上的这枚芯片被政府视为“无价之宝”,以致于他供职的网络安全局局长不得不选择指派一名情报局特工来贴身保护他。

And the show’s visual signature comes much from Gabriel’s power. For example, he’s able to walk through an image created by everything his computer chip can gather and his mind can imagine. While we’re wowed by his ability — and the writer’s creativity — we may also be a little worried whether his powers will lead to writer laziness. Gabriel’s trapped in a corner? Let the chip get him out of it.

该剧的视觉特效大部分都来自于加布里埃尔的超能力。比如说,他可以在电脑芯片收集到的信息以及意念构建的画面中自由穿梭。在我们为他的超能力以及编剧的创造力而赞叹不已时,心中也不免有些许担忧:他的超能力是否会让编剧“偷懒”?比如设置这样的情节:加布里埃尔受困险境?那就让他脑中的芯片助他脱险。

Still, after the first two episodes, the gimmick holds up — and the budding relationships should be able to keep the show going when the novelty wears off.

不过就目前情况来看,前两集过后,高科技噱头还在——加上片中男女主人公渐生情愫,看来该剧在新意消失前仍大有看头。

Intelligence may not be the most exciting show the new year will bring, but it is the kind of weekly adventure/mystery CBS does well — one that tells you what it is up front and is smart enough to deliver on most of what it promises.(21st Century)

《智能缉凶》也许并不是新年伊始最令观众惊喜的力作,但它正是CBS最擅长的周播冒险推理剧——一部虽然可以预见下面的剧情、却充满巧思不会令你失望的好剧。
