Tommy

Critics Consensus

Though Tommy at times undermines unexpected twists with predictable solutions, it's still a decent new procedural thanks to the endlessly watchable Edie Falco.

Critic Reviews for Tommy Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (10)

But, sadly, despite her chops, Falco is not asked to do a lot in the script except exude principles and rock a police uniform.

First-rate actress, compelling idea but neither can escape the clutches of a shopworn formula.

Top Critic

Tommy is in some respects as familiar as cop shows of the distant past, but freshens the formula by incorporating timely storylines, and a wry sensibility that plays to Falco's strengths.

Top Critic

[The ensemble] take the sharp dialogue provided to them and spin it into enjoyable and enthralling performances that hopefully carry "Tommy" past its initial cannon bombardment of crusading.

Feb 7, 2020 | Full Review…

"Tommy" is an old sheep in new sheep's clothing, the latest twist on the cop show with a higher-ranking officer and a glass ceiling buster to separate it from other LA police dramas.

Top Critic

After the pilot, I was prepared to be enthusiastic about CBS having landed an above-average version of a very CBS-y show... And after three? It's just another mediocre broadcast show that probably could have been a lot better.

Feb 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Lackluster police drama has strong women, some violence.

Feb 26, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Falco's performance makes me want to know all I can about the total person.

Feb 18, 2020 | Full Review…

Edie Falco is one of those actors we'll watch in anything. And Tommy certainly is anything.

Feb 7, 2020 | Full Review…

It's no surprise that Falco presides over all of this with aplomb. She's instantly believable, instantly real. You'll root for her take-no-prisoners Tommy, be frustrated for her, question her decisions, and admire her decisiveness.

Feb 6, 2020 | Rating: 7.9/10 | Full Review…

Edie Falco is just right as the first female police chief in Los Angeles in the new cop drama Tommy.

Feb 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Edie Falco is so talented that she can make this formulaic CBS cop drama watchable. She can't quite make it good, but she saves it from being bad.

Audience Reviews for Tommy: Season 1

  • 3d ago
    Though a bit uneven and almost sophomoric with its depictions, I find the show to be enjoyable and look forward to watching it each week. High crime drama (ala Chicago PD) it isn't.
  • 4d ago
    This show always cops out at the end it is so politically correct its boring
  • 4d ago
    bad show. wrong person for the lead actor. please cancel now.

    Tommy is yet one more ordinary CBS police show. After two episodes, we were bored.
  • Mar 20, 2020
    I felt like I needed to give a high rating to balance some of the negative reviews. I mean some of them are ridiculous. One says this is all about the LGBT lifestyle which is so not true. The show touches on the chief being gay and she has a date in one episode. That's it. I do think the cases are wrapped up a little too easily and tidily and that should be worked on but the acting is good, the characters are likable, and the scripts are fairly good. Give it a chance. I think the critic score is more accurate on this one than the audience score.
  • Mar 14, 2020
    Tried it but not for me. I love cop shows but this one Is mostly about the LGBT lifestyle. A cop who was in a biracial marriage, ok. Then figures she's gay. Weird. Then a show about two married guys that have "their" baby kidnapped. It's to much. Tired of all these new show having same sex makeout sessions, everyone has to be married to someone different them them. Most of us are ok with a little of that but it's all we see now. Tired and let down on what could be just a good, exciting show. Plus I don't like the actress. Her acting is opening her eyes to wide and talking in a monotone.

    Woman Power is fully on view in this "arresting" cop hyper-drama!
  • Feb 28, 2020
    Immigration, sexual harasment in the movie industry and climate change. If you are into PC and SJW that is your show but certainly not mine.
  • Feb 18, 2020
    Edie Falco is perfect in this role. Great cast and terrific acting. First two episodes have me hooked.
  • Feb 15, 2020
    Wow, so disappointing. TV show pushes the social commentary so strongly that any subtlety or legitimate plot about life in the LAPD is completely overwhelmed. Choppy and hard to watch. No bueno.
