Golden Boy: Season 1 (2013)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Golden Boy's fast-forward structure is compelling, if overly complicated, with Theo James delivering only a passable central performance.

Critic Reviews for Golden Boy: Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (20)

The concept is clever and some of the cast is well above average but the writing, always the most important element of a TV show, is subpar with cliched dialogue that betrays any possible character development.

Mostly it's a cop show that copies every other cop show in television history.

CBS' Golden Boy is another cop show, but it's not just another cop show. It's considerably better than most of what that genre has had to offer in recent years.

Full Review… | February 26, 2013
Salt Lake Tribune

James and McBride make music together in the way you want any fictional cop partners to and it's a solid, meat-and-potatoes police procedural, and one that could potentially evolve into more depending on how the flash-forwards are used down the road.

When I look into my own future, I see years spent watching Walter Clark grow up, one hour at a time.

Sticking around for the answers seems well worth the time.
