Brilliant but troubled code-cracker Will Travers (James Badge Dale) works as an analyst at a federal agency in New York City. Unstable since losing his wife and daughter in the 9/11 attacks, he considers quitting until his father-in-law and mentor dies in a train accident that Travers suspects wasn't an accident at all.

Critic Reviews for Rubicon: Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (19)

Yet, despite being one of the most intelligent and smartly written dramas of 2010, its glacial pace marked it out for cancellation from an early stage.

If there were an Emmy category for Excruciating Tedium (and I'm not certain there isn't), Rubicon would win in a walk. Well, crawl.

It will take a special sort of viewer to stick with Rubicon's amblings and get to them.

The performances have so far been sharp enough to ward off outright drowsiness.

If you enjoy slowly piecing together a puzzle without having first seen the final image, Rubicon is right up your alley; if not, the brainteasing will likely unnerve you.
