Critic Consensus: Guilt stumbles through over-packed twists, weak dialogue, and unrealistic behavior, yet ultimately emerges as a fun, sensationalized soap.

Tv Season Info
While there was plenty of story to be told in the pilot episode not to mention plenty of suspects for whom to point a finger at as the culprit, the series felt a little overdone, a little too much soap and not enough drama, a little too predictable.
Just when you think that there's no possible way for the show to pack anything more into the premiere, just when you think things can't get any crazier, the series doubles down on the twists.
Come for the stupid, sexy young things making bad choices; stay, if you must, for the weird, outta-left-field guilty pleasure of an oddball lawyer who waltzes in.
Guilt is such a mess of feigned and failed authenticity and feigned and failed vulgarity that it's most uncomplicated pleasure comes from watching Zane basically play a hybrid of James Spader's characters from The Practice and The Blacklist.
Despite being quite literally pulled from one of the more salacious international crime stories of the past decade, Guilt can't stop adding jokers to its house of cards, continually knocking the whole structure down in a tizzy of frenetic gamesmanship.
