Rosewood: Season 1 (2015 - 2016)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Rosewood comes up anything but roses with a poorly written, ill-paced, and overall insubstantial entry in the crowded procedural genre.

Critic Reviews for Rosewood Season 1

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (21)

Morris Chestnut's jaw-dropping physique, unabashedly and smartly on display in the opening moments of his new series, may be the most impressive new character of the fall season. Unfortunately, Rosewood isn't a fitness video.

Sep 22, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Chestnut is always charming, but Rosewood is less so, too cocky and not interesting enough to justify the swagger.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…

There is nothing original about this Bones clone... Yet charming Morris Chestnut makes it go down so easy.

Sep 17, 2015 | Full Review…

Now unoriginal, middling network procedurals are at least diverse: It's progress of a kind, one that leaves room for much improvement.

Top Critic

Star Morris Chestnut is pretty, and so is Miami, but this show wastes them both.

Sep 9, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

In the case of Fox's new crime drama Rosewood, it's hard to spot a single cause of death, but the series' multiple small ailments will probably kill it off quickly.

Top Critic

For an audience to stay hooked, a show must have gripping storylines and captivating characters that will entice viewers to tune in week after week. Fox's Rosewood has these elements and so much more.

Apr 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Despite likable star, the show about a Miami doctor who helps solve crimes feels old and tired.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

If you've been waiting to cut the cable cord, this is the show that will hand you the scissors.

Sep 21, 2015 | Full Review…

We may soon have to perform an autopsy on this formulaic procedural.

Sep 18, 2015 | Full Review…

Rosewood is a prime example of the broadcast networks' retreat into predictability and characters and relationships that fail to supply reasons to return.

Sep 18, 2015 | Full Review…

Putting Chestnut at the center of a medical show isn't a bad idea, but did it need to be one where he solves crimes?

Audience Reviews for Rosewood: Season 1

  • Feb 03, 2018
    Jaina Lee Ortiz is so gorgeous in this series! Overall fun and light, not a dead (no pun intented) serious show, just something light and fun.
  • Dec 13, 2017
    Was an excellent show. Hopefully, someone can bring it back!
  • May 05, 2017
    Y'all are ridiculous. This is a good show. YES it has it's moments that are a tad cheesy. But overall it's a very warm-hearted and light show that manages to touch on heavy issues from PTSD to gay marriage. Some parts of the storyline are a bit rushed and others tend to get drawn out. But it's good writing with an outstanding cast. MANY first season shows have their struggle moments. Fox would be dumb to not renew for a 3rd season.
  • May 01, 2017
    The only problem I'm having with season 2, is that very tangible amount of sexual tension between Rosie and villa in season 1. Is suddenly shoved aside and now they like siblings? Like I really want to see the deed, not that dream Rosie was having at the end of season 1. Well altogether rosewood is captivating.
  • Feb 03, 2017
    Beautiful actors with mediocre acting. Morris Chestnut as a pathologist, just doesn't quite fit.
  • Aug 21, 2016
    Through the POV of an M.E., teaming up with a Detective to Solve Crimes... BORING!
  • Jul 19, 2016
    I like's a pretty fair rating
  • Jul 10, 2016
    Excellent story lines. The attraction between Rosewood and Det. Villa is palpable, it shines through the screen so much you can feel the tension. These critics wouldn't know a great show if it stood up and punched them in their face.
  • Jun 22, 2016
    The main reason I don't like this show is of course the characters in it. First of all the main character 'Rosie' is brutally annoying - he comes along as quite arrogant and smiles way more than he should. And honestly instead of loving the fact that he annoys almost everyone at the police station, I feel sorry for them. Then of course the fact that he is sick and is dying -This is the part where we see his dark side, where his charm can't outshine the pain, but in this show he just seems to bland and boring. I don't feel his pain at all because it's not translating well on screen. The fact that he is doctor knows all these things, is supposed to make us like him but seriously I think working with him would result in higher risks of committing suicide. Then there is of course the detective whom in the beginning she seems like the person who would hold the show together but that falls apart when immediately you can see she's falling for Rosie and then what is more annoying is the little 'soapie' drama plot twist where she is seeing the therapist that Rosie is sleeping with, "Oh seriously what's going to happen when she finds out who she is dating?" REALLY? The other annoying thing is that the 2 characters that could be the source of some 'good laugh' scenes (Rosie's sister and her fiancée) are so bland that if they were killed off in the season finale no one would have shed a tear. The sister grew up with Rosie and she knows him more than us, so she can push his buttons to make us laugh. But she is so plain. If I never mentioned other characters, its because they are far much worse disappointments e.g Rosie's mom. All in all the characters are not likeable the drama in it is so bland that it doesn't evoke any thoughts or conversations and I'm from Africa, and here we love drama and this show is an ultimate conversation killer because there is nothing brilliant about, there is very slow progress in the development of the characters and the show.This show can't contend with other cop procedural shows because it's just awful. From one episode only, I can say it is the worst 45 minutes you can spend, unless you watch the show to drool over Morris Chestnut - Then you are the terrible reason this show has been renewed!

    Started off slow at first, but got much better as the season went on. Series recording on my DVR for season 2. Morris Chestnut is definitely easy on the eyes. I'll keep watching
