Critic Reviews for Murder One Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

As with all [Steven] Bochco series, what initially and ultimately sets apart Murder One is the quality of the writing and intricacy of the characters.

Top Critic

Adult, hard-hitting and tough-talking, Murder One represents the apex of TV series production. Everything is first-rate, from the writing and acting to the photography and music.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a lot to love about Murder One, bless its parodically sleazy, shrewdly opportunistic, talent-engorged heart.

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Murder One is quintessential [Steven] Bochco, a well-acted, smartly written, meticulously presented hour that turns the law inside out while telling a good story that makes you feel like you're spying on these people through a peephole.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

This is super-gripping, diamond-bright, edge-of-your-couch TV.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Murder One sets the stage skillfully for what promises to be the television equivalent of an absorbing excursion into a good Mary Higgins Clark mystery.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

[Murder One] was all just procedure really, but it was compelling. So compelling, in fact, that what was worst about Murder One -- its solemn, unashamed addiction to melodrama -- hardly mattered.

Jul 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Stylish and well-acted, this is the rare show in which commercials hit with a jolt, awakening you from the program's potent spell.

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Murder One is profound, brilliant, mesmerizing and scary.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The plot is novelistically complex, with numerous subplots and a roster of characters, each with his or her own slew of quirks and secrets, that you might need a cheat sheet to keep up with.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Season One remains impressive, unsettling and influential.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Murder One would have played much better as a four-hour or eight-hour miniseries than as a regular series. Many of its middle episodes barely inched the plot along.
