Proof: Season 1 (2015)


Critic Consensus: Proof's intriguing premise - and Jennifer Beals' strong starring performance - can't compensate for a lack of compelling stories.

Tv Season Info

Brilliant yet troubled surgeon Carolyn Tyler (Jennifer Beals) delves into a succession of paranormal investigations when a terminally ill billionaire inventor (Matthew Modine) enlists her to examine cases of life after death. Reincarnation, near-death experiences and hauntings all come to the fore in the first and only season of this supernatural medical drama, which finds the good doctor digging for answers when a young man claims he's seen the ghost of his recently deceased wife, and when an Iraq War veteran maintains that he's had a past life during the Korean War. In Carolyn's other proof probes, a cop killer has a nightmarish near-death experience; a programmer dies while using groundbreaking technology; and hauntings plague an old church. Joe Morton and David Sutcliffe also star. Executive producers include Kyra Sedgwick.

Critic Reviews for Proof Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

This is Beals' show from start to finish, with her character's softer sides and haunted vulnerabilities seeping through that hard-shell casing during Episode 3 in particular.

Beals does hard-edged well, her bluntness an effective buffer against the potential treacle of the weekly cases.

Proof feels like a show that takes complex issues and merely skims their surface.

Jun 17, 2015 | Full Review…

Proof raises the question whether there is evidence of life after death and gives the impression that the show is going to delay giving an answer for as long as possible. Worse, it seems that the creators really haven't thought it out.

Proof ... doesn't work, largely because the show doesn't treat its central question with any degree of depth or thoughtfulness.

Mar 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Jennifer Beals' tough and prickly characterization of Dr. Tyler helps elevate the show beyond its more earnest tendencies.

Life after death series mixes science and the paranormal.

Jun 23, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Have you ever had a show that you felt was talking to you? When Carolyn and Peter met in the hallway of the hospital, that's how I felt.

Jun 18, 2015 | Rating: 4.7/5 | Full Review…

On its own terms - which is as a comforting medical-supernatural drama with a strong female lead designed to follow TNT's Rizzoli & isles - Proof proves its modest worth.

Jun 17, 2015 | Full Review…

Proof might be trying to earn its PhD in heaven and hell, but it doesn't pass the test of being an even decent television show.
