Critic Reviews for Traps Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

CBS' "Traps" sounds good on paper - it stars fine actors George C. Scott and Piper Laurie - but on the screen "Traps" proves to be just another Stephen J. Cannell police show, set in Seattle (but shot in Vancouver, B.C.).

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Nearly everything else about this uninvolving Stephen J. Cannell cops-getting-in-touch-with-their-feelings series is routine.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The odd-couple casting of George C. Scott with Burger King pitchman Dan Cortese in Traps is stunningly wrong-these two not only don't belong in the same show, they shouldn't inhabit the same universe.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

With sharp stories, with [George C.] Scott handed more to do and with [Dan] Cortese's character beginning to know his grandfather, "Traps" could stay on patrol for some time.

In short, there is little original in the conception, and hardly a spontaneous moment in the execution.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The 25-year-old [Dan] Cortese holds his own with Scott, no small feat.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

This is not a real cop show, this is a TV cop show. The action is at once predictable and unbelievable.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

There isn't much chemistry between the stars, but [George C.] Scott and [Dan] Cortese at least hold their own. If the caseload acquires consistent cleverness, Traps may snare a few viewers.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

[George C.] Scott and [Dan] Cortese are trapped in a predictable, sentimental show that explores old-age memory loss and the difficulties of getting over the death of a loved one.
