SERIES PREMIERE: This is not a recommendation, just a notation. It’s too obvious to call this a detective version of House – but this new series, starring Rainn Wilson as a disagreeable, dislikable investigator, is way too obvious as well. It crams the character’s get-into-the-suspect’s-mind catch phrase, “I’m you…,” too often and too forcefully.  Two can play at that game. “I’m you… and I’m changing channels.”
