His reasonable dislikes against it and later being satisfied with its companionship makes up the plot.
Key to the story is the growth and development of Kennex and Dorian’s (his robot partner) relationship. Though the maker Fox Productions canceled the show after just one season, it’s worth watching. The key of this drama is budding and strengthening growth.
Scorpion is a true story of Walter O’Brien; a guy touts have an IQ greater than Albert Einstein and a genius hacker. Heard any story of 13yo kid hacking into NASA systems in the past?

General ideas won’t work. And new ideas take time to gain market. Going with this thought is another bunch making an app that’s an instant hit of the town. This is Amazon’s early originals and has been canceled later, even after receiving positive comments from the community.
