It would be very uninteresting to me. Zack wasn't interesting when he was on Bones so....can we please let him go. He's gone and only comes back when necessary, which is more than enough. It's been two years.......

I would totally watch this. Heck, I'd watch it even if it wasn't Zach Addy. The premise sounds intriguing.

How would they bring him to crime scenes... in a straight jacket? In cuffs?

Would he have cop handlers? How would they explain him to suspects or family of victims? Would there be all that emotional tension around developing respect for him because of all the people he's helped save, and yet still fearing that he could, at any moment, become the worser threat?

I'd definitely watch. But then again, I like Dexter too. :)

I think Eric Milligan is deserving of his own show. I would watch him! But not with this idea, seems kind of limited.

UH, YES! I would totally watch. I don't agree at all with Anonymous. However, I agree with Vorpaks, the premise is intriguing on its own. It would be difficult to orchestrate crime-solving while in a loony bin. It could be like a more quirky and interesting verson of USA's White Collar (which, though I love love LOVE Matthew Bomer, is actually often a boring show. but I still watch it.)

Not to mention I loved (and still love) Zach. Eric Milligan is awesome, he could make it work. And if not, he can just come back to Bones, where I'll welcome him with open arms!

I meant to clarify... I don't agree at all with the FIRST Anonymous**

Sounds a bit like Trauma Team's CR-S01, a surgeon sentenced to 250 years in prison, but so talented they give him a few years off for each successful operation. I can't say I think this idea will work. For one, Zack is not Zack without the other characters around him; also, while I don't think Zack will ever be able to return to the Jeffersonian as a forensic anthropologist, let alone as an investigator in the field. Since he has limited movement (confined to an asylum) there wouldn't be much to show, besides him rearranging a bunch of pictures and reports and suddenly swiping out his loony bin library card for a short frolic at the Jeffersonian.
Nevertheless, I'd watch it. It's Zack, after all.
