A new procedural about a quartet of brainiacs who put their overstuffed beans to work for the U.S. government, Scorpion reveals that “with genius comes weakness,” star Elyes Gabel shares.

    I keep thinking McPhee is Rashida Jones from the thumbnails TV Line uses for this show. And then I’m just disappointed that I don’t get to see a picture of Rashida Jones.
