The Deep End: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Deep End: Season 1 (2010)



Critic Consensus: A direct rip-off of countless other legal shows, The Deep End jades viewers with blasé rehashings of overly familiar themes.


Tv Season Info

The debut season of "The Deep End" follows the lives of five young attorneys who bond during their first year working for one of the most prestigious law firms in Los Angeles. As they tackle cases that often go against their personal morals, each struggles with a problematic personal life, and their hard-nosed boss offers little relief from their constant stresses.

Critic Reviews for The Deep End: Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (11)

Nothing I saw inthe pilot has me wanting to make room for it on an incredibly crowded Thursday lineup.

It's actually kind of depressing just how obviously "The Deep End'' has been constructed of used parts from the likes of "LA Law,'' "The Practice,'' "Boston Legal,'' "Damages,'' "Eli Stone,'' and "The Good Wife.''

Trouble is, it doesn't feel all that fresh.

January 28, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Nice cast. Otherwise, charmless. Airless. Lifeless. (Blah, blah and blah.)

Painfully tame and kind of pointless.

It's just unfortunate that more care wasn't taken to create a show that feels fresh -- "The Deep End" is rather moldy.
