Thief: Season 1 (2006)


Season 1
Thief

Critics Consensus

Andre Braugher is exceptional as a Thief with a code in this grim and taut series, which refreshingly focuses on interpersonal relationships as much as it does the score.

Critic Reviews for Thief Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16)

It walks the walk of Important Series Television, but no matter how hard it tries to be gutsy and existential, it rings hollow.

Great writing, insanely good acting, deeply troubled and deeply layered characters and a plot that will keep you glued to your seat.

Sep 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

As a criminal mastermind, Braugher can do no wrong... It's doubtful, though, whether his skill can earn this bleak show a run longer than six episodes. The disappointing Thief represents a step back for FX.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Thief is headed toward solid ground and a nimbly sustained plot. By the end of its first episode, the series has taken on the complexities of domestic drama.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Thief is great material -- fierce, fraught, human, very 1970s. It's like watching Michael Mann, or 1970s Scorsese and Cassavetes in TV form.

The show would probably be too ponderous to enjoy if Braugher weren't an actor of tremendous restraint. His performance is about his potential energy and his scenes with Mae Whitman, who plays Tammi, have a fantastic tension.

Top Critic

With strong writing and acting, and the rich atmospheric setting of post-Katrina New Orleans, "Thief" is not only a worthy successor this season to "The Shield" but a serious and solid series.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

A stylish mess that never steals your heart and follows characters who are difficult to care about.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

This is all well done, and it's a great-looking production, but the weight of the drama keeps tugging toward a side plot about Braugher's 14-year-old stepdaughter... The growing suspense over the fate of this girl is a bit creepy.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Taut and often smart.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's cast is terrific and helps make things continually watchable, and the Nick/Tammy relationship is a great idea, but there is a lack of urgency to the proceedings.

Sep 3, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Thief is raw, gritty and rich in character development.
