AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Battle Creek doesn't reinvent the wheel as a police procedural, but it distinguishes itself with biting humor and a darker tone than most network shows.

Tv Season Info

This comedy-drama follows the rocky relationship between Russ Agnew (Dean Winters), a police detective in Battle Creek, Mich., and FBI agent Milton Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel), who arrives from Detroit to open a new field office. The pair hit the ground running when a double-homicide connected to a local drug trade rocks the small town. From there, the two encounter cases involving murder and drug trafficking, but find themselves as targets when someone from Chamberlain's past threatens both of their lives.

Critic Reviews for Battle Creek: Season 1

All Critics (44) | Top Critics (21)

Battle Creek might be able to survive on the strengths of its two charismatic lead actors, but the perfunctory mystery in the premiere suggests that the lack of creativity will do them in.

February 25, 2015 | Full Review…

Many a good cop show has started with mismatched partners, and Duhamel and Winters establish their characters smoothly.

March 3, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This show fits perfectly into the network's mystery/cop-heavy schedule and audiences should be able to blur right through it comfortably. As comfortable blurs go, Battle Creek is indeed a success.

March 2, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Viewers who enjoy lighthearted procedurals on CBS and cable networks like USA should be happy with Battle Creek.

March 2, 2015 | Full Review…

Duhamel and Winters were born to share the screen as the odd couple who must solve a seriously strange series of crimes.

March 2, 2015 | Full Review…

Battle Creek isn't about to approach the ratings of CBS' three NCIS series or the upcoming CSI: Cyber with new Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette. But maybe it will hang in there as something a little offbeat on a network with little of that going around.
