Critic Reviews for The Client Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

While the original film had a fine sense of suspense and danger, this two-hour TV "Client" dawdles along intent upon winning over your heart.

John Grisham's The Client was a really good book and a good movie - the best adaptation of Grisham's fiction to date. It's not a particularly good TV series, however.

Desite an extraordinarily classy cast for a TV drama, The Client is as compelling as a month of DNA testimony.

Jun 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Even when the series approaches a theme that's been tackled before, it does so in a way that's both dramatically striking and unpredictable.

Jun 11, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

As drama, "The Client" is clueless. Although it's meant to be suspenseful, and bodies do mount, no one who really matters seems to be in jeopardy.

Jun 11, 2019 | Full Review…

A first-rate movie thriller has been turned into a second-rate TV show, but upper-second-rate, not lower.

Jun 11, 2019 | Full Review…

A one-shot film concept if ever there was one, author John Grisham's "The Client" translates uneasily to the small screen as a series theme.

"The Client " is for people who think "Murder, She Wrote" is a dizzying blur, who believe posted speed limits of 25 miles an hour are for speed demons, who are annoyed that Mister Rogers always talks too fast.
