Proof: Season 1 Reviews

March 16, 2018
Proof ... doesn't work, largely because the show doesn't treat its central question with any degree of depth or thoughtfulness.
June 23, 2015
Jennifer Beals' tough and prickly characterization of Dr. Tyler helps elevate the show beyond its more earnest tendencies.
June 23, 2015
Life after death series mixes science and the paranormal.

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.

June 18, 2015
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.

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.
June 17, 2015
Proof feels like a show that takes complex issues and merely skims their surface.
June 17, 2015
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.
June 17, 2015
Proof does not fit the tone TNT has cultivated more recently with The Last Ship and The Librarians. Proof feels like a throwback and a bit of a throwaway, too.
June 17, 2015
I'd say it's an intriguing idea... but honestly, the case-of-the-week execution on Proof doesn't add up to a lot, medically or metaphysically.

Will there be any real insights? Unlikely. Basic cable doesn't get you the answer to the ultimate question. But there may be enough Proof there to keep you interested for a while.
June 15, 2015
Filled with cliches, the TNT series benefits from the casting of Jennifer Beals in the central role, but handcuffs her with a drab character and dead-end (pardon the pun) concept.
June 11, 2015
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.
June 10, 2015
From the first scenes, it's clear Proof is trying to tweak convention wherever and whenever possible.
