Added DiffLines:

* CainAndAbel: Downplayed -- Dash wants to help people with his powers while Arthur uses them for personal gain (although minor stuff like knowing what stock to buy).


* {{Fingore}}: Dash was subjected to this by a henchman, when one of Arthur's connections wanted his money(which he stole) back from Arthur. Fortunately the future has advanced medical technology to reattach it.

In 2065 UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC[=,=] eleven years after the events of the 2002 film, Precog Dash (Stark Sands) has grown distressed over still seeing murders. Setting out on his own he has attempted to stop them, but as the weakest of the three he lacks important info that his twin brother Arthur (Nick Zano) could see. After his latest failure he runs into Detective Lara Vega (Meagan Good) and, after she pieces together his past, the two team up to [[TheyFightCrime stop crimes]] [[PrecrimeArrest before they happen]]. But Dash's fellow-Precog Agatha (Laura Regan) has foreseen that this partnership will only end in disaster.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverTrustATrailer: None of the pre-premeire promos indicated that this was a sequel to the film. Most viewers were therefor under the impression that it would be a [[{{ContinuityReboot}} reboot]].


* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Unlike most psychic detective shows, precogs like Dash do ''not'' exist in a legal gray area. Their powers are well-known, and exploiting them is extremely illegal. Vega and Dash struggle to keep his involvement hidden, until she gets the idea to bring him in on Hawk-Eye.
** The episode "The American Dream" has Akeela stating that the price of granting illegal immigrants amnesty was the repeal of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which requires ignoring the entire Constitutional Amendment process' requirement of three-quarters of state legislatures approving it after two-thirds of Congress does.

Added DiffLines:

** Selfie-drones are a trendy commercialized variant of this concept.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyEvil: The inspectors (led by Henry Blomfield) pursuing the precogs towards the end of season one. [[spoiler:It's established that they're rogue agents working without the authority of their government agency, but they claim that they're pursuing the precogs because they genuinely believe that TheNeedsOfTheMany justify [[PoweredByAForsakenChild putting the precogs in the milk bath indefinitely again]]. This would make them [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well-Intentioned Extremists]] and possibly {{Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist}}s. However, they also are revealed to have taken payments from some unknown group, which is not revealed as of the end of season one. Depending upon what group this actually is, that could take them out of the well-intentioned extremist category.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ItsPersonal: [[spoiler:After [[GirlFriday Andromeda]] is killed, Arthur is ''pissed'' and wants to kill the agents who are responsible for her death. The only thing stopping him from doing it is that Wally does it first.]]


* PickUpArtist: One is a suspect in an early episode. [[spoiler:The actual perpetrator turns out to be one of his followers.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SenseiForScoundrels: A famous pick-up artist is a suspect in an early episode. [[spoiler:The actual perpetrator turns out to be one of his followers.]]
