Critic Reviews for Pure Genius: Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (13)

I have no idea what happened in the making of Pure Genius, but it is impossible to tell that Katims was involved, on the level of performance or intelligence.

he script is assembled from cliches, some so hokey the actors seem to have trouble keeping straight faces. The plot rarely holds together, and the technology is more new age (a real-life "Vulcan mind meld"?) than cutting age.

If only a generation gap was the biggest issue facing the characters on CBS' new medical drama Pure Genius.

Top Critic

Marred by the usual hospital prime-time melodramatics, Pure Genius is still a compelling idea matched to a superior cast.

Here's to its long-term ratings health as a medical series that, unlike Code Black, has an overall calming effect.

Top Critic

This medical drama is absurd in every possible way, but the fake medical devices and treatments it comes up with are amusing enough to give the proceedings some zing.
