It is a basic carbon copy of every background-viewing procedural involving two mismatched, opposite-gender, dueling personalities who solve crimes.

Given how irritating I found Rosie, I don't expect to be watching additional episodes of this one, except maybe to see what they do with Lorraine Toussaint.

What the showrunners probably didn't count on is their character being too charming, going past the point of arrogance.

About the only really interesting part of this show is the high tech pathology lab - called Magic City Lab, Inc... But a fancy lab does not a TV show make.

We all have our problems. Fox's problem is finding something to prop up Empire. Rosewood is it, for now. A show so bad you feel really, really sorry for it.
September 23, 2015
Rosewood just wants you to watch pretty people solve murders in a subtropical setting, with just enough business attached to hang a long arc on or whip up a season-finale cliffhanger, if it gets to that.

Rosewood can be fun in spots, but more often is way over-cooked.
September 23, 2015
Rosewood is a snooze and a half. The dialogue is awful, the series largely humorless, and every move that happens in the pilot is something you've seen done better elsewhere.
September 23, 2015
Chestnut, a reliably charming presence on screens small and large, is by far the best the thing about this painfully conventional procedural that borrows aesthetically from Miami Vice...

It's all about outlandish, hard to believe action, and tying up the bow in 44 minutes each week.
September 23, 2015
Morris Chestnut's Dr. Beaumont Rosewood is one of those braggy know-it-alls that some viewers respond to because they like confidence and big smile, and other viewers turn away from because - well, they don't like braggy know-it-alls.
September 23, 2015
At its worst, Rosewood plays like the kind of ridiculous, over-the-top drama with which a sitcom character becomes obsessed. At its best, it offers its audience the chance to feel smarter than its characters.

Rosewood is the TV equivalent of empty calories -- it looks delicious, but there's nothing there.
September 23, 2015
[Rosewood] is stuffed with hackneyed setups, tedious exposition and character quirks galore.

Rosewood isn't a horrible show. Alas, it's just not a memorable one, either.
September 23, 2015
The series strains for glib banter and a frothy style that clash with horrible crimes, then settles for run-of-the-mill action sequences. Rosewood tests viewers by delivering a startling revelation that exposes how ineptly the series has been set up.
September 23, 2015
Fox's Rosewood tries so badly to create the next prime-time super couple, but the duo at the heart of this awkward crime procedural are less together than they are apart.

September 23, 2015
Beyond the tired, will-they-yes-of-course-they-will dynamic between Rosewood and Villa, the show's premise is weirdly thin.

If Empire jumps off the screen, Rosewood lays there like faded wallpaper, the kind of show you forget you're watching even while you're watching.
September 23, 2015
Lorraine Toussaint ("Orange Is the New Black") has signed on to play Rosewood's mother. Toussaint's only nine years older than Chestnut, but if the towering absurdities of "Rosewood" haven't lost you by now, this shouldn't be a sticking point.
