Rubicon: Season 1 Reviews

June 19, 2018
"Rubicon" relies on the tropes of most dramas, like ominous string music and a snail's paced narrative, releasing just enough plot points to make you wonder what the hell this show is all about.

One has to wonder how long Rubicon can sustain any kind of mass following while keeping its secrets so closely guarded.
August 1, 2010
I couldn't shake the feeling that the network of Mad Men had produced another period piece, one infused with paranoia that's meant to be contemporary but somehow isn't.
August 1, 2010
For a show that's supposed to be a spy thriller, there aren't a whole lot of thrills in Rubicon.
August 1, 2010
It takes itself so seriously that it is a contender for the most pretentious entry on the already crowded field of conspiracy-theory dramas.
August 1, 2010
There's a crucial line between slow and inert, and Rubicon trips over it.

Unquestionably smart but undeniably sluggish.

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

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.
