Critic Reviews for Eyewitness: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

Sometimes tight, engrossing, thriller that at times feels like it's trying too hard to justify its 10-episode run. Gets a bit unnecessarily complicated and convoluted as it moves along.

November 25, 2016 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The pilot episode is a model of expositional economy that lays down a complicated premise in just a few minutes, then adds complicating elements one by one.

October 28, 2016 | Full Review…

Even if one were to exclusively count the procedural thrill of such murder-centric stories, Eyewitness comes up staggeringly short of what it's going for.

October 27, 2016 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The plot offers enough twists to create a consistent sense of foreboding, and it raises just enough questions to keep it interesting.

October 20, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Tonally, though, the palette points to a show that is fairly suffocating.

October 26, 2016 | Full Review…

While the investigation is dragged out a little bit longer than necessary over the 10 episodes, the ambient pleasures of watching Nicholson and her two young co-stars are enough to keep anyone plugging through the more boring stretches.

Audience Reviews for Eyewitness: Season 1

Although it appeared as a cheesy teen drama at first, it quickly descended into a tornado of mysteries and secrets waiting to be discovered. Episodes can be rather repetitive and slow but it picked up the pace in the last 3 episodes.
