I'd venture to say that the vampire/axe fight on top of the horse stampede in AL:VH was more believable than just about everything in the first episode of Scorpion. :D

At first, I thought maybe a polarizer is toasted, which is not uncommon in an LCD projector with a number of hours on it. This just looks like you're not getting any blue. It might be as simple as...

I hate-watched it to see how badly they'd mischaracterize 'geniuses.' I wasn't disappointed in that respect. I stuck it out for about 40 minutes before I got bored. I might watch it one more time...

That looks like a rebadged version of the one I have and posted above.
