I confessed I am watching this show just to kill time. Sometimes the episode is intriguing but sometimes it is just a meh. But what keeps me going is Dean Fujioka. Yes, I’m watching this show for him. Dean in suits. Dean in glasses. Dean in trench coat. Dean in sweaters. Dean without glasses? I will need another post just for that! *giggles* Yeah, Dean, Dean and more Dean! I can’t get enough even though he is not the main lead. It is okay, I will endure the rest.
IQ246 is a Sherlock-style investigation drama. It can be funny, but not all the time. It can be quirky, but not all the time, too. Sometimes, I find it creepy. So I have mixed feelings with this show. I enjoy how smart Homonji-san, the lead character, is. He is not only genius with high IQ, but born into an aristocrat family with a heritage that could last for another two or more generations, Homonji-san is certainly blessed. However, he is different than other rich brat. He does not care for his wealth since it is an old money. It will continue to grow without effort. He has passion for knowledge. He reads a lot.
Homonji-san is bored to death. He has abundance of knowledge but does not have a place to use. One day, Wato Soko, a new detective was assigned to guard Homonji. It’s a weird assignment for her. On top of that, it is definitely weird to guard him when he already has Kensei, his personal assistant aka butler aka the man of everything. I found it weird that Soko-chan got assigned to be Homonji-san’s bodyguard. What for? I also find Soko to be annoying and her presence is not needed. For a detective, I question how she passed her exam. She can’t even fight!
Homonji is a character you either intrigued or intimidated by him. For me, it depends on the episode. He is a very intelligent man. His approach in solving cases is pretty nerdy. But he is haunted by someone. He knew he’s been followed but couldn’t figure who is it. By the end of episode 6, we finally got a glimpse of that person. Maria T. Who is she and what she wants from him? Well, you just need to watch it to know *sticks her tongue out*. I wish I could tell you how many episodes this drama is but sorry, I really don’t know. I assume 10 to 12 episodes long. But I don’t mind… As long as I can ogle Dean *wink*. Did I mention Dean looks hot in suit? *salivates*
