When mysterious wreckage starts falling from the sky, a secretive international agency is tasked with figuring out what it is, where it came from, and most importantly… what it can do. British agent Finola Jones and American agent Bryan Beneventi are partners who have very different styles – she’s warm, intuitive and detail-oriented, and he’s charming, confident and guarded. But they have no choice but to trust each other as they track down the debris scattered across the Western Hemisphere. Each fragment has unpredictable, powerful and sometimes dangerous effects on the everyday people who find it. Every discovery is also a race against time, because shadowy outside forces seek these objects for nefarious purposes.

Quick Thoughts: Okay. Some quick housekeeping. Genius is an anthology series following a new trailblazer every season. Since this is technically the show’s 3rd season, I wasn’t sure if I should put it on here. I did The New Pope when it came out but we were also in a content drought when that came out. So the question is: Should I include anthology series here?
