Critic Reviews for Eyewitness Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Nov 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.

Oct 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.

Oct 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.

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

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

Oct 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.

Although Eyewitness makes a poor first impression, the show eventually twists and turns into a mesmerizing and addictive murder story-slash-family drama.

Oct 16, 2016 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It carries some of the DNA of a Lifetime movie of the week, but the writing and direction are better than that, and Mr. Paxton and especially Mr. Young are quite good.

Oct 14, 2016 | Full Review…

Eyewitness is a competent procedural with well-drawn characters and solid performances, especially by Nicholson, Paxton, Young and Bellows

Oct 13, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

You might throw your hands up in exasperation a few times, but you'll keep watching, and the wait between cliffhangered weeks will be a tough one.
