Golden Boy: Season 1 (2013)


Critic Consensus: Golden Boy's fast-forward structure is compelling, if overly complicated, with Theo James delivering only a passable central performance.

Critic Reviews for Golden Boy Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (20)

When I look into my own future, I see years spent watching Walter Clark grow up, one hour at a time.

Top Critic

The new CBS procedural has a few outstanding elements that work right away.

Feb 25, 2013 | Full Review…

Sticking around for the answers seems well worth the time.

Feb 26, 2013 | Full Review…

All this is way too complicated for its own good.

Feb 26, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

We quickly care what happens to these characters, which gets any show off to a strong start.

Feb 26, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Golden Boy is definitely worth a look because the writing and acting are so good.

Feb 26, 2013 | Full Review…

The concept is clever and some of the cast is well above average but the writing, always the most important element of a TV show, is subpar with cliched dialogue that betrays any possible character development.

Mar 1, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

CBS' Golden Boy is another cop show, but it's not just another cop show. It's considerably better than most of what that genre has had to offer in recent years.

Feb 26, 2013 | Full Review…

Despite being nothing new, the show works.

Feb 25, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

James and McBride make music together in the way you want any fictional cop partners to and it's a solid, meat-and-potatoes police procedural, and one that could potentially evolve into more depending on how the flash-forwards are used down the road.
