Critic Reviews for All Rise Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6)

The performances help bring some zest to the courtroom, thanks to snappy dialogue and an active camera capturing a vivid cast.

Sep 30, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Nothing you'll see rises to any level of must-see. Instead it's all pretty much preachy and pedestrian, with the diversity of the cast working against itself in terms of this show's labored approach to injustice and discrimination.

Top Critic

Our emotions lie directly in the hands of characters, and we are drawn in until the end...and we're able to exhale.

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Earnest courtroom melodrama has good intentions, violence.

Oct 8, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Ultimately, it's not for me, but I would not object to the older CBS demographic watching a serviceable legal drama in which not every lawyer and judge is white, and not every defendant is a person of color.

Sep 25, 2019 | Full Review…

For a series premiere, All Rise ticks all the boxes. It introduces the characters and conflicts very well, backed up with some solid acting, and witty dialogue.

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: 3.75/5.0 | Full Review…

All Rise... sadly falls flat.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

All Rise could settle down and concentrate on the two people who make the show work - Missick and Helgenberger - but it is just as likely to become a generic courtroom drama that tries too hard to be funny.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

If "All Rise" can continue to sidestep the most tired tropes for more novel approaches like this, it will find a place on TV all its own.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

At least All Rise is borrowing from the best. My standard with new network procedurals is, "Can I remember any of the weekly stories a day after watching the episode?" and with this one, I actually can. A little.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

As it stands, this courtroom drama has the feel of the kind of show CBS develops well, a lightly serialized episodic diversion structured around open-and-shut cases and carried by a solid lead.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The tone is all wrong for this legal yarn.

    I wish All Rise was not agenda driven because I liked the cast. The series drowns itself in its own pool of sugar water. I knew there was no hope for it when the lawyer called himself the good guy. Everyone in the courtroom is one-sided toward a liberal bias. The so-called bad guys are ICE and white guys. I would rather a courtroom series that had even a toe in reality. It does not have to be the big toe either.

    Love this show! The actors are amazing and yes, it touches on subjects that can be triggering....but so is life.

    I watched the first three episodes this morning and I thought they were wonderful! Simone Missick is fantastic!!! The supporting cast is great as well. The show is quite an interesting take on our judicial system because it explores all jobs from the bailifs to the judges. Five stars for Simone Missick and cast!

    So sitting through the second episode and seeing how this show is undeniably pushing its leftist agenda. I figured I would give episode III another shot. The second fourth and sixth scene right off the bat shows The shows leftist agenda. The show is definitely two thumbs down. I'm actually kind of surprised that CBS Is entertaining this show. I will not be watching again

    Promising pilot, but has turned into a leftist propaganda show. Every story is heavily slanted without any consideration of the other side. They encourage judges making policy, not ruling over the law. Any good legal show begins with presenting both sides. Nothing is ever as simple as this simplistic show makes it out to be. Sad for Simone Missick, who is an amazing actress.

    Bleeding Heart - SJW legal drama with no actual topics just a bunch of cliches. Great Characters but the show just sucks.
  • Oct 09, 2019
    I love it! I love Symone!!!! I really hope this show lasts
  • Oct 08, 2019
    First episode was good. Then they started pushing the liberal law enforcement hating agenda.
  • Oct 08, 2019
    Phenomenal show with complex characters that don't fall into the typical TV tropes that you would expect.
  • Oct 08, 2019
    It was soooo bad. I gave it 2 episodes and that was enough. Too bad they could not find any decent writers to do anything but write stereotypical "old white men bad" storys to actually make it as interesting as they hyped it to be.
