Critic Consensus: Playing a charming con man, James Wolk heads an outstanding cast that helps make Lone Star an intriguing, well-scripted drama.

Lone Star, the tale of a charming creep trying to atone for a life of theft and deception, has plenty of intrigue and drama. What it may not have is any good place to go.
Let's say Lone Star has its work cut out for it, and so does Wolk. His portrayal is too nice - too romantic, too good-hearted, too bland - to make Allen interesting, or at least convincing.
What I like about Lone Star, what could make it the strongest TV newcomer of the season, is the ways in which it differs from classic nighttime melodramas.
This wildly unique and sexy series is also wildly implausible-asking a lot of its audience in this era of social networking.
