Overall, I'd give it a 6/10. Mainly because, as you say, the final 20 minutes or so saves the rest of this pilot episode. I'll check it out next week to see the development. Then decide whether it's worth repeat visits.
My review: "Meh."
I agree; cliche, but what else can you expect from a network show that need to lead the majority of their audience around by the hand.
the guy's an expert on this killer and his motivations, but it takes him a good amount of time to figure out what "nevermore" means?! C'mon.
