Critic Reviews for Do No Harm Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (19)

It's hard to believe that of all the pilot ideas flying around Hollywood, this is the best that NBC can do. Like "Deception," "Do No Harm" is built on such a faulty, dated premise that it's hard to imagine anyone in his or her right mind going for it.

Jun 23, 2020 | Full Review…

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

Jan 31, 2013 | Full Review…

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.

Jan 30, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This show is so bad it almost seems it would have to be intentionally awful.

Jun 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Interesting concept, decent cast, great lead... Yet in the pilot, it all added up to....yeeeech. Methinks the network got ahold of this one and polluted its original golden concept into some cloudy, cheap, tarnished brass.

Jun 23, 2020 | Full Review…

The hybrid of procedural and classic mystery actually seems to work pretty well in tandem for now.

Jun 23, 2020 | Full Review…

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.
