Cast & Crew
Because Baker's Fallin is such a stereotype, the only mystery surrounding The Guardian is why it was made in the first place.
One of the interesting things about [Nick] Fallin is that he seems to have an active inner life. But The Guardian lets you know he's a force when provoked, whether in the boardroom or in the less decorative hallways of children's court.
[Simon Baker] has emerged this season as one of TV's most compelling new faces.
The thing is, [Simon] Baker's look of perpetual woundedness is actually very effective. Watched week after week, his inner suffering becomes compelling.
The writing is uneven... Making The Guardian watchable, though, is the quiet charisma and measured work of Baker
The Guardian is a chilling, state-of-America show, pointedly devoted to the question, "What is a meaningful life?" Simon Baker is galvanizing as the hero, intense and hard to read.
Viewers will find it very easy to embrace the star of The Guardian, Simon Baker, and the character he plays, Nick Fallin. Audiences are suckers for stories of personal redemption and prodigal sons seeing the light. Nick qualifies on both counts.
With a strong supporting cast and an involving opening script told stylishly, The Guardian makes an hour of television seem like 39 minutes.
[We don't like] the rudderless feel, and the sense that nobody seems to be all that happy to be doing this show.
Tinkering around the edges won't be enough to ensure The Guardian's future if Baker's performance remains a void at the center of the drama.
Audience Reviews for The Guardian: Season 1
Feb 27, 2021Loved the Guardian tv show! I binge watch all 3 seasons. I saw bits and pieces when it aired initially so this was catch up and fill in the blanks. Some one should continue this show. Sorts like NcIS🙋🏽♀️🙏🏽🥰 Nick was my favorite character. I wish Jake would have gotten outed to his fiance, he was such a disloyal, ladder climbing bastard. The law associates failed to understand it was Burt's firm. Burt should have never let Jake talk about Nick at the team building retreat. He should have shut him down immediately. Burt was so foolish when it cane to Shannon, I would have sent her fast ass and her daddy packing long ago. I guess he was just a lonely older man. Lulu was strange and fickled at times. Wish Nick would have gotten counseling, the love and attention he needed early on and his life wouldn't have been so complicated. He!s fine, caring,,compassionate and misunderstood because he doesn't care what others think about him.
