Critic Reviews for Killing Fields Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (9)

"At face value, it's compelling stuff, offering a behind-the-scenes look at how cops do their jobs. Plus there's a solid justification for reopening the case now, with all the advancements in technology since the '90s .

In the case of its premiere episode, an interesting mystery is hampered by over-production, scripted interview scenes and other signs of a show trying to please instead of just letting the action unfold.

Many viewers, maybe millions of viewers, will watch Rodie and fervently hope that he does find his man. They won't be able to help themselves.

This is the kind of story that builds over time, so it's difficult to tell - Discovery made only one episode available - whether the rest of the series will stay as compelling as the pilot. But it's a doozy of an episode.

Reopened gritty murder case is rough, but respectful.

Killing Fields is doing what so many other shows in the last ten years seem to be doing, and to its severe detriment: taking a compelling idea and turning it into another damn cop show.

That Killing Fields, at least by its second episode, begins to generate some whodunit interest may trace back to two of its executive producers, Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson, who worked together on Homicide: Life on the Street and Oz.

In any case, Killing Fields at least generates anxiety and a desire to see what happens next. I'm counting on Sanchez to solve the crime.

Jan 7, 2016 | Full Review…

Discovery sent one episode to critics, but it was enough to suggest that "The Killing Fields" should appeal to fans of both true-crime documentaries and fictionalized police procedurals.

Jan 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's the smaller, unvarnished, passing moments that sell the show - where its particular poetry, and even its comedy, can be found.
