Ironside: Season 1 (2013)



Critic Consensus: Ironside is an unnecessary, lackluster remake that could be a decent police procedural if it wasn't so mundane and monotonous.

Critic Reviews for Ironside: Season 1

This Ironside starts out as a good cop show that Underwood could turn into a very good one.

Ironside is back for no discernible reason.

Ironside has all the right ingredients for viewers looking to have their expectations met before - or while - they doze off. The rest of us will be occasionally distracted but mostly bored.

Underwood tries hard throughout and is still a small-screen presence. But that doesn't save Ironside from being thoroughly overcooked and stuffed with convoluted deductions on how the featured wrongdoing went down.

A competent, connect-the-dots procedural that never offers much of a case for why a remake was needed.

IIronside's manifest failings go well beyond the political incorrectness of its producers. It is a dank and ugly affair, with Underwood playing a dour, Nietzschean superhero.
