Critics Consensus

The Whole Truth attempts to put an new spin on the courtroom drama, but its overly speedy pace keeps the characters from coming into focus.

Critic Reviews for The Whole Truth Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

Bruckheimer invariably seems to prefer going at least a little over the top rather than depend on audiences to grasp anything resembling subtlety.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

The back-and-forth makes for pretty good television, ratcheting up the tension and giving a sense of the approach both sides will take in the trial.

Jun 4, 2020 | Full Review…

While the promise of bringing something completely new to the legal procedural may have been a little off, it certainly provides a refreshing change of pace.

Jun 4, 2020 | Full Review…

It may not close the case for season pass inclusion after its opening arguments but "The Whole Truth" does enough right to keep listening to the case

Jun 4, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This clever, well-written series follows each case by alternating points of view on the same story to reflect the different approaches and tactics employed by the defense and the prosecution.

Jun 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.
