Critic Reviews for Do No Harm Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16)

Do No Harm isn't so bad. It isn't so good, either, but let's keep the glass half-full here.

TV should have a special rating that would cover shows in which some material is unsuitable for people under the age of 14 and all the material is unsuitable for people over the age of 14. That rating would be perfect for Do No Harm.

Do No Harm expects us to accept the dual-personality premise without grounding it in anything believable.

Jan 31, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The talented Pasquale gamely gives it a go, but the dialogue is excessively cheesy, with Price constantly tossing out double entendres about his condition, and the set-up is just too ridiculous.

Jan 30, 2013 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Pasquale plays the hunky perfect doctor nicely and De La Garza seems like she'd be worth his time. This bad-self business, though, does too much harm to what could have been a better show.

Part Dr. Jekyll, part Mr. Hyde and all dumb.

While the pilot does as best it can to set up this retelling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, there are some aspects that need a good amount of polish to bring the show up to par. Or any semblance of par, for that matter.

Jan 31, 2013 | Rating: 3.4/5 | Full Review…

Though I like Steven Pasquale, this is a weird show that can't entirely settle on a tone, covering the same modern Jekyll & Hyde territory that Steven Moffat's Jekyll handled so much better a few years back.

Jan 31, 2013 | Full Review…

Do No Harm isn't flat-out awful, but it is high-concept to the point of being distracting and preposterous.

Jan 31, 2013 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Surprisingly dull given the edge of its concept, Do No Harm is yet another concept that could have been a home run on cable, where true risks are being taken, but feels neutered on network TV.
