Critic Reviews for The Resident Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (11)

Something's got to give. And I'm interested just enough in The Resident to see if something soon does.

Jan 18, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

A familiar medical show filled with broad strokes and broad characters that might - like "The Orville" and "9-1-1" - bring some viewers to the party too.

Jan 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Perhaps "The Resident" will click with folks disenchanted with medical care. This show's mix of good acting, melodramatic writing and hospital horror could serve that huge audience.

Jan 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Although the series milks melodrama at every opportunity, it explores interesting ethical issues arising from its fundamental premise that a medical institution's concern for the bottom line sometimes takes priority over saving lives.

May 8, 2019 | Full Review…

There are so many other medical shows you could be watching. Try one of those and call me in the morning.

Jan 19, 2018 | Rating: 4.7/10 | Full Review…

The Resident Season 3 is an exceptionally good season of television.

Jun 19, 2018 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

The show is forgettable at best and awful at worst, and even a couple of intriguing moments can't change that fact.

May 8, 2019 | Full Review…

This medical drama has a solid premise but some of its outlandish moments undermine its stories.

Nov 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.0/4 | Full Review…

The Resident still scores the occasional hit, even if it does so clumsily.

May 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Fox's new medical series The Resident is the funniest show since Scrubs. Like that beloved NBC comedy, it features dastardly docs, naive newbies and nutty patients with the most bizarre ailments... It's a drama. Oops.

Jan 18, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

There's a lot to love about the medical drama. It puts a new spin on the genre by painting veteran doctors as sleazy, power hungry people - a role usually reserved for hospital administration in this kind of show.

Jan 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Harrowing medical drama about hospital politics, ethics.

Audience Reviews for The Resident: Season 1

    Love it, the characters are great!
  • Dec 08, 2019
    Just mind blown by the premise, the setup, the lead actors Indian guy and his senior guy foremost are terrific performers and handsome men. Everyone else are in their shadow, but are as good if you go deeper. What a show! I don't want to lie, I just binge watched the entire season in 2 to 3 days. :)
  • Nov 28, 2019
    Great show, yet another example of Tomatometer being biased and out of touch with the audience.
  • Oct 14, 2019
    Basic good bad tv but gets a bump because it addresses real issues in US hospital and medical system. Of course too sexist, why that part of reality always ends up on tv is a puzzle. It's nice relaxing but not mindless tv. And I am interested in the characters. A+ for diversity casting. (Of course "The Resident" is cis straight white male, whom I do enjoy gazing at despite the STUPID giant tatoo the show put on his back.)
  • May 28, 2019
    First Three episodes was little boring but then the episodes started to be great I think season two will definitely be be
  • May 08, 2019
    Great show we love it. Thank you for this awesome show!!!!!!
  • Apr 17, 2019
    My wife and I have fun creating our own script as each episode progresses. I didn't know Theo Huxtable went to med school !
  • Apr 07, 2019
    Disgusting display of toxic masculinity from Conrad. This is the type of crap I was expected to put up with for years in tech. A supposedly "brilliant" jerk, a total asshole, bops along through the world mistreating people and objectifying women. He pretends he sees things others don't when really he just steals all the oxygen in the room so no one else has a chance to do their job. His power displays and need to make his peers subservient is sickening. The sprinkling in of "good guy" acts perpetuates the really bad idea that enough "good" acts somehow excuse all the bad ones. Hint - they don't. He's still a class A asshole.
  • Apr 02, 2019
    This show is good on fundamentals; cast is diverse. Great to see Jane Leeves (Daphne in the 'Frasier' series) back on the screen!
  • Feb 19, 2019
    CAN A ONE DOCTOR FIX A BROKEN SYSTEM? Man that whole question was put to side and forgotten by purpose in the middle of the show, that said it isn't a bad way to kill one hour of one of your week nights.
