It's time for a break from the tears. You have to earn those.

Mr. Mazzu is like Rise itself: sweet, earnest, cloying, and also obnoxious.

Welcome to NBC's Rise, a new series that suffers from some very significant pilot-itis.

March 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

When Rise works best, it's invariably placing these kids at the center; when it stumbles, it's nearly always because the series chooses to tell us how inspired they should be, rather than showing us what happens when they're inspired.

... it's heartfelt from start to finish while also offering an overall feel-good respite from television's ongoing obsessions with "true crime"...

The cast is solid, but otherwise "Rise" falls flat.
