Why We’re Watching: Judging from the series promo, Pure Genius, has a lot of potential to be an amazing series. It looks to be as heart-warming as it is thrilling; an emotional rollercoaster in the best way. It also looks like it could fall into the trap of being overly sentimental. Here’s to hoping it is the former and not the latter.
