News & Interviews for Pearson: Season 1
I won't oversell Pearson's grittiness. This is still a big, glossy show with a side of soap opera. But I'm going to keep watching to see if it finds another gear. If it does, it will be very good summer TV indeed.
Whether viewers take to Pearson or not, Jessica Pearson is a symbol of endurance anyone can find comfort in, but black and brown women in particular.
Even this plot, however, comes off as cold as steel, since we learn everything about it from dialogue alone. Pearson is all talk, little action.
For fans of Suits, the change in tone that comes with Pearson will no doubt be jarring, but it offers a more substantial role for [Gina] Torres in a more fleshed-out version of Jessica.
While there are several familiar elements from Pearson's predecessor, you'll be disappointed if you expect an extension of Suits. But the show is better for it.
"Pearson" sometimes resembles a watered-down version of "The Good Wife"/"The Good Fight." Fans of "Suits" may still want to give "Pearson" a try but no one can blame them if they choose not to stick with this series.
Pearson turns out to be a worthy successor to Suits, one that is more in keeping with where USA Network is headed.
What's so appealing about Pearson is how this powerhouse attorney has shifted to the political sphere in a brand new city with strangers and limited power.
Overall, the stakes are higher on Pearson than they ever were on Suits, but, ironically, the series is still much more of a slow burn than the flagship show.
Audience Reviews for Pearson: Season 1
Jan 31, 2020As awesome as it could be.
Dec 01, 2019Really enjoyed this underrated Suits spinoff and I'm sad to see it go. The first season definitely gave Suits a run for its money. Also, major props to Bethany Joy Lenz, who absolutely captivates in every scene.
Sep 26, 2019Being a fan of Gina Torres, I really loved the first season of Pearson and desperately look forward to season 2! I loved the in-depth look into Jessica's personal life as well as her role being the mayor's 'closer.' Ten episodes went to quickly and I WANT MORE!!!
Sep 26, 2019Huge fan of the Jessica Pearson character from Suits and was super excited to see a spin-off featuring this strong female lead! Not disappointed in the slightest, I like that the show is grittier and filmed in that 'hard edge' city filter... and absolutely delighted that Jessica's wardrobe is just as outstanding and drool worthy as ever!
Sep 23, 2019Show is progressing slow, side characters are poorly developed and I can't link them to the main cast, it's like two separate shows. Pearson become more soup opera, that is disappointing. Firstly Jessica is an image of strong woman but by the end of the season it's like she's desperate lying player who's cannot be trust so why should we?
Sep 22, 2019Love this show. Good writing, good story lines.
Sep 21, 2019This show is very well done, the story line and its relation to the show suits....truly gets chicago politics and corruption down to the T...excited for the 2nd season.
Sep 18, 2019Unexpectedly enjoyable spinoff
Sep 08, 2019I like it! I hope there is a season 2, I can see the slow build of season 1 and I hope if there a another season the pace can be faster and the stories more intriguing
Sep 08, 2019Gina Torres is brilliant and the character is awesome but the show is so dull. I watch each week for the lead actress but it's hard work. Better scripts please!
