Critic Reviews for The Whole Truth Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (9)

The Whole Truth gets a split verdict. Solid idea, inconsistent execution.

Sep 22, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The pleasure to be found on the show is in watching Tierney and Morrow riff off each other like very competitive tennis players, hitting the ball back and forth with all their anger behind each whack - then shaking hands warmly at the end of the match.

Sep 22, 2010 | Full Review…

There's some minor Rashomon-style point-of-view switching as the attorneys prepare their opposing cases each week, and never know who's going to win, which makes this a bit different, and a bit more intriguing, than many standard lawyer shows.

Sep 22, 2010 | Full Review…

"The Whole Truth" equals "Law & Order: The Next Generation." It's still just a little too overeager and needs to mature.

The Whole Truth is about letting the audience see that it is not so much about justice as it is about how the jury sees things.

May 10, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It denies viewers the opportunity to become invested in this adversarial procedure, to pick a side and a root for an outcome.

Sep 22, 2010 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Despite being a drama about lawyers, 'The Whole Truth' doesn't even begin to have the courage of its convictions.

Sep 22, 2010 | Full Review…

It's all very fast-paced but relentlessly and annoyingly simplistic, with virtually no dramatic nourishment along the way.

Sep 22, 2010 | Full Review…

What Truth sacrifices in its attempt to be all-encompassing is point of view. But without that, we have no rooting interest, and we form no emotional connection to the case or the person being tried.

Sep 22, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Mostly, the show seems determined to race through cases at a breakneck clip. Speed doesn't kill, necessarily, but it can't save weak material either.
