Reckless: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Reckless: Season 1 (2014)



Critic Consensus: Despite its soapy summer appeal, Reckless suffers from bland performances and run-of-the-mill storylines.

Tv Season Info

Chicago litigator Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood) repeatedly squares off against charming Southern attorney Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), at the same time they struggle with a growing attraction for each other in Series 1 of this sultry legal drama. As sparring partners Jamie and Roy banter and flirt and sparks fly, but they try to resist the urge to give in to their desires for reasons that include Jamie's homicide detective boyfriend Preston Cruz (Adam Rodriguez) and Roy's mixed emotions over his recent divorce from the mother of his two young daughters. Further complicating their relationship is the fact that they represent opposing sides in a sex scandal case involving a disgraced former cop named Lee Anne Marcus (Georgina Haig) and several members of the Charleston Police Department. The series also stars Shawn Hatosy, Michael Gladis, Kim Wayans and Gregory Harrison.

Critic Reviews for Reckless: Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

Solid page-turner makes great beach reading -- uh, viewing.

Top Critic

Reckless is executed competently enough, with everyone holding up his or her end of the bargain by being hot and trying to enliven the routine premises

June 27, 2014 | Full Review…

The acting in Reckless hovers around serviceable. While Wood has an appropriate come-hither look, Gigandet doesn't set off as many sparks as the show seems to want.

June 26, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

CBS pushes the envelope with its sultry legal drama Reckless - and if you [were] expecting the same old staid law procedural, you were in for a shock. I can't wait to tune in next week to find out.

June 30, 2014 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

Merely witless, akin to a trashy and disposable beach read that should come with its own sunscreen - or perhaps a wet bar to distract us from the cheesy plotting and cardboard acting.

June 27, 2014 | Full Review…

Reckless is decidedly bland and evinces almost none of the sense of place CBS proclaims.
