Critic Consensus: Copper has an intriguing premise and handsome production values, but it's somewhat undercut by a lack of character development and an overabundance of exposition.

The show's co-creator, Tom Fontana, worked on Homicide, another atmospheric crime drama set in a tough city, and the dialogue is satisfyingly rich when it's not overburdened with exposition.
Those [dialogue] imperfections never jolted me out of the spell Copper casts.
There's nothing quite like Copper on TV. The second hour is more engrossing than the first, and is easily rich enough to keep us coming back for more.
