CONCEPT A bogus TV psychic (Simon Baker), whose family was offed by a serial
killer, works for the California Bureau of Investigation, where he uses
his people-reading skills to solve murders and find the man who killed
his wife and kid.
THE SCOOP Says Baker: ''If he has a flaw, it's a compulsive nature to mess with people's heads.''
BOTTOM LINE Okay, the premise sounds ridiculous, but the pilot was a fun, fast-paced treat, with a somber Robin Tunney (Prison Break) playing off Baker's wacky, tortured hero. Baker has floated in and out of TV series, but he's so charming here, we hope this one sticks.
