Nash Bridges: Season 1 (1996)


Season 1
Nash Bridges

Critics Consensus

Nash Bridges boasts the charisma of Don Johnson and wry support from Cheech Marin, but this star vehicle runs out of gas when it comes to offering its own unique identity amid a glut of similar television fare.

Critic Reviews for Nash Bridges Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

Johnson's greatest feat will be to rescue Nash Bridges from early cancellation.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

A slick, watchable confection... Mr. Johnson, who is an executive producer of the series, carries Nash Bridges off with appeal and panache. And he has given himself the perfect, if unlikely, sidekick in Cheech Marin.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite its formulaic car chasing and repetitive gunplay, Nash Bridges is amiable enough and Johnson cool and charismatic enough to make this passable entertainment

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

It simply aims to be -- and seems able to deliver -- an appealing diversion in the form of a smoothly running star vehicle.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

The plots typically include Russian gangsters, drug lords, thieves or murderers, with plausible enough stories that always include a little humor to balance the violence.

Jun 19, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's a well-made hour, fast and splashy, but ugh, that Bridges character is such a clanky collection of corny cliches. Does anybody believe in oafs like this anymore? Well, anybody shouldn't.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Unless a strong ensemble develops or another Michael Mann lends a distinctive style to the action, this traditional and comparatively light cops-and-robbers hour could get lost on the streets of San Francisco.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

While Johnson retains a certain charm, he's trying too hard -- and so is the show. Nash Bridges is just another ill-considered comeback attempt by a former TV star who flopped as a movie star.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

God help me, I like it. As Sally Field might say, I really like it.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

A smart and swinging police drama that is the most promising pilot from CBS in two television seasons.

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Nash Bridges is no [Miami] Vice, but it has quite a few virtues -- most of them rooted in Johnson's winsome portrayal of the title hero.

Jun 19, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The dialogue is either tired or forced, and sometimes both simultaneously.
