A bunch of brainiacs solving crime - I think that's DH's catnip. So when he was sick, I put on Scorpion for him. He mainlined it, and now we're watching s2. Apart from the episode arc, which hinges on solving the Monster/Problem of the Week, there is also a season arc, that is the relationship between the members of the team. It's clear that Walter O'Brien and Paige Dineen have romantic feelings for each other that they're not expressing yet. Sylvester has confessed his feelings for Walter's  sister, and that relationship is quietly developing. The third relationship is that between Happy Quin, the mechanic, and Toby Curtis. That is, Toby has unrequited feelings for Happy. I think we're supposed to root for them to get together, but Toby's behaviour is defintely creeping towards (sexual) harrassment. 

Last night, DH kinda ranted he should cut that shit out, because it's not.okay.

I nodded in agreement and thought to myself: "welcome to watching media my way. Feminist critiques while at the same time trying to just enjoy it.
