AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Lethal Weapon's overly polished production values and tired narrative are somewhat overcome by solid chemistry between its two leads.

Tv Season Info

Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) is an LAPD detective recovering from a heart attack, he's married and has three children; Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) is a former Navy SEAL recovering from the death of his wife and unborn child. When the two are partnered, they clash over their different approaches to the job and to life in general: Murtaugh wants to avoid stress at all cost, while Riggs throws himself into peril every chance he gets. This buddy-cop show is based on the movie series of the same name, and its first season is all about the journey to friendship and camaraderie between the two protagonists while they're trying to catch criminals and keep each other alive. Also starring Jordana Brewster, Keesha Sharp and Kevin Rahm.

Critic Reviews for Lethal Weapon: Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (13)

As recycled material goes, this doesn't reek as bad as I expected it would.

Crawford and Wayans prove to be a pretty good fit, as actors if not always as partners.

Top Critic

Too many new shows this season are based on old movies, but try not to hold that against Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford, whose odd-couple pairing as TV's answer to Danny Glover and Mel Gibson actually works.

September 20, 2016 | Full Review…

High body count. High cute quotient. Extreme yawn value.

Top Critic

I don't generally make a final decision on a show until I've watched a whole season, but just five episodes in to Lethal Weapon, I can without a doubt say it's the best guilty-pleasure show of 2016.

May 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Lethal Weapon... feels extremely familiar. In part that's because the original movies set a template that we've seen imitated countless times on TV without the movie's title attached the program. Now they've gotten around to using the title, too.
