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.

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.

Top Critic

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.

As much as I like Underwood, the plot is all rather routine and most of this series wouldn't have looked out of place in the 1960s.

Ironside tries to be "not just another cop procedural", but it actually is, and it's not as special as we wanted it to be.

Oct 10, 2013 | Full Review…

While Underwood does his best to add bite to the title character, he can't overcome the recycled feel of Ironside.

Violence, police brutality in unremarkable procedural.
