Minority Report: Season 1 (2015)


Season 1
Minority Report

Critics Consensus

Lacking either the action or the imagination of its big-screen predecessor, Minority Report is a pedestrian spinoff that fails to capture the vision of the film.

Critic Reviews for Minority Report Season 1

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (27)

The futuristic visual effects are mildly entertaining, but the story line becomes tedious and morally defanged by the end of the pilot.

Sep 21, 2015 | Full Review…

This Minority has nothing particularly insightful to report, not about the way we live now nor one hundred years hence.

Sep 18, 2015 | Full Review…

The two leads and opening story line aren't bad either, making this continuation of the hit 2002 Steven Spielberg movie an eye-popping blend of futuristic special effects and content that's also worth watching.

Sep 17, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…
Top Critic

Minority Report disappoints because, in its first episode at least, it is uninterested in the very idea that enlivened the film: that precrime could be wrong.

Top Critic

Science-fiction meets crime-solving buddy drama in an extension of the 2002 movie.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The CGI is still pretty cool, and some chuckles are wrought from the futuristic premise (Iggy Azalea is considered a classic in 2065), but at its heart Minority Report is a by-the-book cop procedural with turgid writing and complete absence of subtlety.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

On all levels, this show is an absolute disappointment.

Mar 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the absence of visual identity, even bolstered by the presence of some nifty future tech, leaves Minority Report a bit paint-by-numbers as crime procedurals go.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall: meh.

Jun 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It is passable entertainment, but you are better off re-watching the movie.

Sep 21, 2015 | Full Review…

If it comes down to solving a crime a week - no matter how coolly futuristic it looks - Minority Report won't have much future.

Sep 18, 2015 | Full Review…

This sci-fi thriller follows a "precog" (Stark Sands) who has the ability to envision crimes before they happen. He secretly teams with a brash detective (Meagan Good) to take down bad guys...We envision a hit in the making

Audience Reviews for Minority Report: Season 1

  • May 13, 2020
    Netflix was right to cancel this show. After watching it until the 8th episode, I stopped. It was supposed to get you so excited because of what was going to happen. But because of the character Dash, it started to annoy me. The writer made a mess out of this character, plus they chose a hideous actor, adding up to a not-so-interesting series anymore. Though give credit to Vega, Arthur, Agatha for an outstanding performance.
  • Dec 10, 2019
    I guess I'm in the minority. I loved it. So disappointed it was cancelled after just 1 season.
  • Aug 09, 2019
    I loved this series and thought all the actors did really well in each of their rolls. I would hope, that in recent time to come this series will be picked back up again. My personal score would be 8/10.
  • Apr 10, 2019
    You should not go into this expecting anything philosophical or you will be disappointed. This is just a detective show set in the same world. The futuristic CGI effects are neat. However, the gratuitous cleavage shots and constant reference throwbacks to our time are extremely annoying and take you out of the world. Don't expect anything amazing, and you'll enjoy it for what it is.

    Despite the fact that many of the barriers between television and movies have been final cancellation broken down to distill a precarious endeavor to attempt to create a television series based on a popular movie. There have been some successes most notably ‘M*A*S*H*’. Starting in 1972 it ran for an incredible 11 seasons maintaining its position as a ratings juggernaut throughout most of it. More frequently the opposite is closer to reality. It is difficult to take a story that had a distinctive beginning middle and end and transform it into a serialized story conducive to the episodic nature of television. One of the latest attempts was focused on the 2002 Steven Spielberg film ‘Minority Report’. Vector was also an adaptation of the original source material, a short story the delightfully twisted mind of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. The fundamental theme is exceptionally intriguing infused with an amazing degree of potential. The main theme has the audience imagining a world set slightly in the future the law enforcement and government prosecutors have undertaken a novel approach to combating crime, specifically murder. Three siblings have been found to have the psychic ability to have visions of murders that occur in the near future. The siblings are referred to as precognizant or by the more commonly used abbreviated term, pre-cogs. They have a vision of the murder is passed on to a precognition unit of the police department referred to as ‘Precrime. It should come as no surprise that the film was critically acclaimed and financially lucrative considering it was directed by Steven Spielberg Tom Cruise as the lead detective of the unit, these are sufficient to convince the head of the studio take a gamble on migrating the story TV. Unfortunately, the story may have been proven to be theme for a short story and a showcase for a highly imaginative film but it fell short of being able to sustain itself as a television series sufficiently robust to last the entire season and beyond. Originally 13 episodes had been scheduled before the end of the first season that number was reduced only ten prior to receiving its final cancellation notice. After Pre-Crime was challenged on constitutional grounds, arrest and execution cannot proceed proper judicial proceeding and pertaining not be carried out before the crime has been committed. When the Pre-cogs dispensed their visions occasionally there was the possibility of a different outcome, a minority report where the suspect did not follow through with the capital crime. Public outrage over the execution or incarceration of the innocent forced the repeal of the Pre-crime statutes. The police department returned to the tradition methods of dealing with crime. One of the city’s detectives, Lara Vega (Meagan Good) proved to be successful in her job despite being unaware of the future. This revised paradigm was about to change in a drastically unexpected fashion. After the dissolution of the program in 2065, the human is today’s change serves as three gifted siblings being released from the protected environment that dominated their lives to fending for themselves for the first time ever. This is a natural repercussion of ending the program allowing for little assistance in making the forced transition. Each of the mow adult children possessed unique variations of ability. The eldest, Agatha (Laura Regan), her visions were highly empathic, allowing her to experience the crime from the intimate perspective of the victim. The slightly older, fraternal twin, by minutes, is, Arthur (Nick Zano). The specifics of his foresight are to pull in details, names, numbers and specific information. The youngest of the triad who can perceive from his visions the general setting and circumstances of the impending murder. While Agatha settled down on a ranch/farm, Arthur took the exact opposite approach. He leverages his ability to see numbers and names to become an extremely financial manager in the state planner. While Agatha lived in modest means Arthur became the epitome of conspicuous consumer. The youngest of the precognitive siblings was Dashiell, aka Dash (Stark Sands) was always the most reserved and introspective of the set. When the precognitive program was canceled three of them were sent to live on an island, treated like a dirty secret of a failed politically toxic program. Dash was haunted by the images of all the murders they detected. Overwhelmed by the sheer brutality of the images and the emotional turmoil and pain of the victims compels him to leave the island break the cardinal rule of the conditional release, refrain from interfering in future events. The head into the city where he plans to do whatever he can to abate the violence but without the details provided by his twin brother’s images are tenuous and subject to interpretation. Once Dash arrives in town he encounters a police detective for the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, Lara Vega (Meagan Good). Dash was unable to act upon his vision due both to the lack of specifics, no resources and those actions are now illegal. The series is fundamentally a police procedural, a vendor genre that dates back to the beginning of television. What was needed was a case back together sowing the seeds of a future partnership. Open Vista was a rehabilitation facility dedicated to help form Precrime inmates, suffering from a brain tumor as a result of the Halo containment system. The nurse is murdered by wonderful patients who subsequently commit suicide to avoid incarceration. Dash has one of his visions, which has the output appearance of a seizure. Vision shows him the murder of the wife of Peter Van Eyck (Andrew Stewart-Jones), the former deputy chief of the Precrimes without campaigning for political office leveraging his support for a new crime prevention incentive, ‘Hawk-Eye’. That uses a data-driven predictive search algorithm for potential murders. A common tenant of this type of genre is the mismatch team. Lara is the steadfast detective believes in proper procedure but is growing tired of criminals using the poster get away with things. This has driven her to the point of being rolling the bend the rules to the point of being able to break the law and work with Dash. In contrast Dash‘s naïve member of the partnership. Having spent most of his life floating in an isolation tank wired to machinery, you decide any semblance of a normal childhood and now that he’s on his own he finds himself driven by empathy and grief. His condition and need to help appeals to Lara on a very primitive she finds herself not just needing to help compelled to assist him in his quest. The team is not self-sufficient however they are operating outside the boundaries of the law. In the police station one of the data analysts, Akeela (Li Jun Li). She has a black hat history and hacking so she sports an asymmetrical pattern of facial tattoos in order to avoid being picked out by facial recognition software. From Dash’s past, he lists the assistance of the former caretaker for the siblings, Wally (Daniel London). For the entire duration of the program Wally was responsible for the physical health and maintaining the equipment used interfaced with their minds. He figures out array to give a few moments wanting to Dash prior to receiving a precognitive vision. This will allow him to make sure he is not compromised by the physiological effects. On the serialized side of the show he has a new crime that is detected and has to be avoided in some fashion. One of the problems inherent in the situation is Lara & successfully into being without making it appear as though she had poor knowledge of the events. To explain the constant association with Dash joins the police force is a civilian consultant. What ongoing antagonist the writers of the total place took a very predictable direction with their plot. Detective Lieut. Will Blake (Wilmer Valderrama), was the partner of Lara until his recent promotion as a boss. He is extremely ambitious not just bowling but almost anxious to step on others on his climb to the top of his field. You can justify almost any action takes about a how incrementally all to others as long as they are successful and beneficial to advancing his determination to advance. Admittedly there is ample chemistry between the two principle characters albeit now in the typical way. Due to the stunted emotional growth experienced by Dash precludes a romantic relationship from blossoming. Lara seems better suited to serve as a surrogate big sister in lieu of Abigail, who pushes him to accept the confinement on the isolated island. Lara has come to believe in him and his idyllic need for justice and justifying Precrime, at least as far as their unwilling participation. The purity of Dash’s motivations is in stark contrast to those of Blake who is driven exclusively by self-aggrandizement. Ultimately the series quickly becomes overly reliant on the futuristic special effects and convincing the audience that a considerable portion of standard police work can be either supplanted by advanced technology or at least significantly enhanced. Whenever special effects overwhelm human motives and interaction the inevitable cancelation notice is ensured. This is yet another series that was added to the lamentable list of ‘canceled before its time’. It did not begin with greatness and rich potential like some other shows meeting seminal fates, but it never received a much deserved opportunity to grow, finding its narrative voice and audience. at least it can still be found on some steaming video services particularly Amazon Prime.

    I rather enjoyed the first season Am disappointed that there won't be a second

    I loved this show. The only negative was how 'Dash' was required to perpetually make annoying, bad decisions in order to justify getting the story from point A to point B. At the end, when the Pre-cogs were unmasked, it sort of looked like the show painted itself into a corner with nowhere to go from here. Maybe it was intentional, if they knew they weren’t going to be renewed Or maybe they got to where they planned to get and hadn't planned what happens next. Anyway, I really liked this show and I'm sorry to see it go.

    "It will be a stormy progress in the beginning, but the end meets the expectations raised" This "Minority Report" Review contains spoilers. In the year 2040, the world is literally led by technology. But interestingly, it has evidenced the increase in killings in the city, so a group of people call to one scientist to create a program called "pre-crime". So a group of three little guys is necessary to be the "precogs". What are the precogs? They are those who can see the future, Dash can see fragments of the killing, Arthur knows the names of possible victims and Agatha feels what the victim feels. Both are confined to a milk bath to keep the city safe. But when pre-crime closed, they have been free and hidden, until now. Once they were free, Dash tries to hide his gifts and is forced to contact Vega because he never manages to get in time before the murder occurs. Lara Vega (Meagan Good) is an excellent police of the DIA that is under the care of her boss Will Blake (Wilmer Valderrama), an eccentric, but noble man who subsequently will help Vega. I can assure you that this is not only special effects. When you entrust to a series, you have to endure its lazy and horrible episodes, but is too satisfying to know the entire process of the series to be a good show. And this is the case of "Minority Report" in which at first sight looks difficult but after half of season, road is more pleasant. This does not mean that the series has no visual effects, has them but the series focuses more on another path. On the cinematography side, half of the series is by Barry Donlevy. We should not wait big shots or anything like, "Minority Report" relies on its own history to create a good presentation. In terms of photography, it is acceptable. Sometimes, it is surprising with truly majestic angles that enhance the beauty of a scene and create a visual paradise only with being in an enclosed area. As for soundtrack of the series, also you will not wait anything surprise. Even, they do a good job with the atmosphere, the music is not a big factor here. The cast is less favourable to the series. The characters are delicately made as all the other series, but initially the climate feels cold and chemistry and passion among the main actors do not take shape. As the show progresses, the character development is exponential and only with a little patience, you'll see all the beauty that is hidden in superficial performances in the start. "Minority Report" is the best series I've seen in aspects of the sci-fi genre. Because not only is it concentrated in show explosions, ships and many special effects, also cares about have a good main plot, which engage audiences to also connect with the subplots. At first I thought that the series was going to be boring by many terms and unfamiliar words, but after the first five episodes, the emotion is born. Fox will not give green light to a second season, depending on the affirmed, but, with a single season is quite sufficient.
