Crossing Lines: Season 1 (2013)



Critic Consensus: A so-so police drama with an interesting premise, Crossing Lines is kept from taking flight by dull characters and hackneyed plotting.

Critic Reviews for Crossing Lines Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (10)

The series, undeservedly getting thumped in the ratings so far, is a polished procedural with a sophisticated atmosphere.

Jul 6, 2013 | Full Review…

Crossing Lines tells a satisfying story of the hunt for an international serial killer, but it is so clumsy in its efforts to set up an emotional payoff that it probably shouldn't have tried at all.

Top Critic

Crossing Lines isn't breezy enough for a summer diversion. Instead it's ponderous, pretentious and too predictable.

It's almost like Fichtner's reprising his role from Prison Break, playing an agent with a serious drug addiction. It works, as he was as much a standout on that show as he is here.

This series has been shamefaced about appearing here, but I'm in the dark as to why. It's magnificent toshtastic bahoolery, and I loved it.

Crossing Lines seems content to just stick with boring stereotypes.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The team is a colorful group, plus Fichtner is a wonderful leading man. The show also has a feeling of more of a cable show than a network show.

'Crossing Lines' has some fun with the culture clashes and features some decent performers slumming it. Sadly, it comes unstuck almost everywhere else.

Top Critic

With Netflix's library of crime and legal thrillers including things as good as Line of Duty, The Killing and The Divide, this one will probably slide a fair way down your list.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Though constructed from off-the-rack tropes and predictable dialogue, the show also keeps moving forward, causing its characters enough trouble that you feel compelled to stick around at least to see how they get out of it.
