  • Memorist is a must watch drama! It is one of the best mystery thriller I’ve ever watched and It is better than ‘He is psychometric’ they have the same powers but there is so much difference between them. Every episode is more intense and mindblowing! Its rating is low because as u said it’s cable but not only that if u just put memorist on a good timeslot i’m sure the rating is much higher.
