APB: Season 1 (2017)


Critic Consensus: APB's reliance on high-tech gadgets at the expense of high-stakes drama makes it a cutting-edge police procedural not worth pursuing.

Critic Reviews for APB Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (10)

APB is as generic as its title, failing to give us characters or stories that feel remotely realistic.

Feb 7, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A not nearly as bad (as you feared) cop procedural, plus toys that go boom.

Feb 6, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…
Top Critic

The crime fighting itself gets bogged down with rote action scenes shot mostly in the dark.

Feb 6, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

APB is a fun show, but it missed out being anything more than light escapism.

Feb 8, 2017 | Full Review…

The "good, dumb fun" approach doesn't really work for a series that's so steeped in real-world problems. Subject matter like this demands a more nuanced, thoughtful approach.

Feb 7, 2017 | Rating: 5.2/10 | Full Review…

Unless your show is Knight Rider, a TV series based on technology rarely works -- it needs to be built around human drama, not fancy gadgets.

Feb 6, 2017 | Full Review…

APB never settles its own version of its existential dilemma: man or machine? It argues for both. But as this uninspiring drama proves, sometimes when you split the difference, you end up with nothing.

Feb 6, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

APB is just an empty, run-of-the-mill cop show that separates itself from the hundreds upon hundreds of previous TV cop shows by having an app that citizens of Chicago use, thus circumventing 911. That's not an advancement of the genre - it's just stupid.

Feb 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the gimmicks and the solid cast aren't enough to elevate the ho-hum storytelling.

Feb 7, 2017 | Full Review…

It's almost like someone remade a Paul Verhoeven movie but didn't understand the satire.
