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

Tv Season Info
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.
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.
