美剧推荐:怪咖带你补脑洞《天蝎计划》

Procedural crime dramas are CBS’s bread and butter. The network is responsible for developing long-running series like Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Crime Scene Investigation and Criminal Minds. With Scorpion, CBS assembles yet another wisecracking, fast-talking team and charges them with taking on the world’s most clever cyber criminals. The catch this time is our heroes are emotionally stunted geniuses. The end result is a product that’s unintentionally hilarious.
犯罪题材情节系列剧 一直是哥伦比亚广播公司(CBS)的立命之本,《海军罪案调查处》、《犯罪现场调查》、《犯罪心理》等“长寿剧”均出自CBS之手。这次CBS的新剧《又打造了一个口齿伶俐、妙语连珠的团队(计算机专家沃特•奥布莱恩为首的天蝎团队),还为他们“配备”了世上最聪明的黑客团队。这部剧的主角们虽然智商逆天,但情商奇低。结果,一部本来不是喜剧的作品变得搞笑了。

Over a tense dinner date we’re introduced to Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel), whose stratospheric IQ comes at the expense of a sense of empathy. O’Brien, along with three of his similarly gifted buddies and a random waitress, is recruited to solve the crimes the rest of Homeland Security is apparently too dumb to crack. The team uses their smarts to stop plane crashes, track down a bioterrorist, and thwart bombings.
在一次气氛紧张的晚餐约会上,我们认识了(本剧的主角)沃特•奥布莱恩(伊莱耶斯•加贝尔 饰):他有着超高智商,但却也不近人情;我们还认识了男主的三个同样智商卓越的好友,以及一位普通的女服务员。他们受雇帮助美国国土安全部破案,很明显,国土安全部实在是太笨了凭借聪明才智他们成功阻止空难、追捕手握生物武器的恐怖分子并挫败爆炸计划。


Sound ridiculous? Well, it is. But the show is so absurd, so blissfully committed in its quest to make tired ideas seem new, that it manages to be an entertaining watch in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way.
听上去太不靠谱?没错。这部剧太荒诞了,它还欢脱地力求让老掉牙的故事讲出新意,这一切都让它变成了一部以搞笑口吻讲述的娱乐片。

You’ve seen this show, in parts, before. Scorpion lifts the most memorable elements from better television you’ve already watched and smashes them all together. O’Brien, our calculating protagonist, is a softened tech-savvy offshoot of Gregory House (from House). He’s Mark Zuckerberg with a badge. His accomplices? They’re basically reworked versions of the characters from The Big Bang Theory. On a whim, the team also employs “normal” waitress Paige Dineen (Katharine McPhee). Dineen provides formulaic emotional guidance to the team, a romantic foil for O’Brien, and occasional motherly reminders that the team can’t function if they don’t eat lunch. To top it all off, the story is slathered in a healthy dose of technical nonsense in typical CBS crime drama fashion.
这部剧的很多部分你也许都觉得似曾相识。《天蝎》将很多优秀电视剧中最令人印象深刻的部分提炼出来加以杂糅。我们的“心机”男主奥布莱恩就像是科技领域的乔治•豪斯(《豪斯医生》),或者是带着警徽的马克•扎克伯格。再看看他的同伴们——简直就是《生活大爆炸》的翻版!一时兴起,他们的团队中也雇了一位(像佩妮一样的)普通人——女服务员佩吉•迪宁。她负责为整个团队提供正常人的情感指导,同时也是陪衬奥布莱恩的情感“绿叶”;她还会不时闪现母性的光辉,提醒整个团队“不吃饭就没法儿工作”。最绝的是,这部剧到处都是CBS犯罪剧特有的关于科技的无稽之谈。

Scorpion isn’t the most well written show around. Its characters are stock, its dialogue is mechanical, and its story is hard to believe. Most shows wouldn’t hold up in the face of such crippling shortcomings, but by not taking itself too seriously, Scorpion manages to be entertaining despite obvious flaws.
《天蝎》并非一部匠心独运之作,其角色老套、台词呆板、故事不切实际。缺陷如此严重,其大部分剧集的剧情都很难讲的通。虽然缺点很明显,但是《天蝎》却因其轻松的风格,成功娱乐了大众。
