Detective Sergeant Bruno
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.
The twists may allow viewers to overlook the clunky dialogue and nonsensical plotting.
From the opening minutes of Guilt, Freeform... has got its hooks in with a juicy murder mystery. Now and then, for no apparent plot reason, there is a sex scene set to pop-lovemaking music. The whole thing is fabulous, as in utterly unrealistic
Its characters are predictably written, the dialogue is average at best, and Grace in particular does so many dumb things that it's hard to care about what happens to her.
Deliciously far-fetched and nicely warped in a peculiarly Scottish way, it is the most impressive small screen debut since Tutti Frutti.
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.
Audience Reviews for Guilt: Season 1
Dec 18, 2019Delete Review. Wrongy posted here. I have watched Guilt 2019, not this one from 2016.
May 28, 2018Clearly aping the Camera Style of the csi stuff, (and to be clear, I don't like those either) and mimicking the Feel of them too, this British drama tries too Hard to appeal to the Same demographic. Short pants? Cell phone? What British Copper uses THOSE Words? Only Yen Minutes in and I was struggling. We're way past this, aren't we? Both recentBritish period dramas and continental offerings of vastly more Sophistication and intrigue are out There. The Scandinavians must watch this stuff as comedies. I'd say it was easy fare. But if I'm watching a murder mystery, that's exactly What I don't want.
Mar 25, 2018Typical of how America sees London. We don't have prison cells like they showed Grace locked in. Wish they would get simple facts correct. Apart from which it was compulsive viewing so many twists and turns. I didn't like the ending though. Unless it is leading to a 2nd series.
Oct 28, 2017I've awarded a star to the cast in recognition of their amazing efforts to find some truth in the ridiculous plot and painfully creaky dialogue. The second star is for the DP and team. No guilt, no pleasure. Anything positive to say?... just glad that it kept the cast and crew in work.
Oct 26, 2017Great cast, and really good narrative
May 20, 2017I liked it! Such a pity they have cancelled the series.
May 13, 2017I've only watched two episodes, and couldn't care less who killed Molly. The acting is painful (especially Bruno and the female prosecutor) - very stilted line-delivery.
Aug 22, 2016It's a guilty pleasure in a manner of speaking The creators take a murder-mystery and use the Amanda Knox approach During a trip to London a young girl Grace finds her roommate Molly murdered and all the fingers point to her The show turns into a addictive, chilling story about this girl's involvement and wondering if she is guilty or not Other characters like Grace's sister, boyfriend, and attorney try their hardest to prove her innocence As the evidence builds up the number of suspects does too but it also means deadly consequences. Connections lead to money, sex, drugs, lies, betrayal, doing things against our own nature, and getting mixed up with powerful, dangerous individuals. Sexy, sly, brutal tv making for the young crowd. Cool plot twists and hip players.
Aug 16, 2016Love it and hope it is renewed!
Aug 11, 2016Forgetting for a second that Guilt is an appalling crime drama with the most obvious twists and turns ever. The fact that it has no hook, no mystery and horrible characters that are poorly fleshed out and have no hold on you. I couldn't care less who did it, or that Molly is dead. But as I said lets forget about that and talk about how horrible potrayal of British people it is. Firstly, the laws are all wrong. Everyone in Britain knows that the police officers can't do half the stuff they do, and wouldn't get away with it if they did. Secondly, is that suppose to be London? Because it's horrible. Thirdly, Prince Theo and his "common" fiance, bit on the nose isn't it. I agree with all the drugs in it, that happens. I know it's aimed at Americans but if that's the case don't call it a American-British drama, because whoever's involved in it know nothing about our laws, customs or anything. You can't have a crime drama based in England with American laws.
