Critic Reviews for Murder in the First: Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (11)

If Bochco can re-create the twisty legal action that was a hallmark of [L.A. Law], Murder in the First will be worth the 10 hours.

June 12, 2014 | Full Review…

Diggs and Robertson ground the show in interesting characters at its core, allowing scene stealers like Schiff and Cromwell to do what they do so well.

June 11, 2014 | Full Review…

The characters may be shallow, but that doesn't keep the show from giving the easy pleasures of reading a quickie mystery novel.

June 9, 2014 | Full Review…

Like most of the best cable shows, Murder in the First strips the production and the cast down to the essentials, then executes them well.

June 9, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Good, cleanly told newcomer that can be a bit pokey.

Murder in the First looks to have sturdy underpinnings. Bochco at this point has been around too long to learn entirely new tricks. Still, this is easily his best new series since NYPD Blue tried to break molds more than two decades ago.
