December 17, 2020
Stuhlbarg and Davis bring real menace to the densely woven story.

After a point, it's hard to see or even imagine that anything original or surprising is waiting for us farther down these tracks regardless of the gripping work Cranston is churning out alongside the fellow acting powerhouses joining him here.

Dumb premise that threatens to sink promising series.

"Your Honor" isn't close to being in the same league as "Breaking Bad." At times, you can't help but roll your eyes at the stupidity of certain main characters. But it's an addictively lurid thriller.

[It] may still have some more interesting places to go in the second half of its season. Will it be worth it to take that journey? At this point the answer is a reserved maybe, if only to see what these actors will do with wherever it takes them, and us.

Showtime provided only four of the 10 episodes of "Your Honor" in advance, but each one both impressed and surprised me and made me hungry to see the next.

Not everything I've seen so far feels completely believable... and characters sometimes talk as if they're in a limited television series rather than the streets and rooms of New Orleans.

It feels like we're wallowing in misery that no one has to go through, and the effect isn't thrilling but dreadful. Perhaps later episodes will find stronger footing, but for now, don't worry about it.

Your Honor is a slow burn for what promises to be ten episodes of gradually bubbling prestige pulp
Full Review | Original Score: B
December 7, 2020
"Your Honor" seems to be written by people who've only heard about human nature and whose understanding of tragic consequences is strictly theoretical.
December 7, 2020
The series struggles to give us an anchor for who or what Michael Desiato's character was before the series' inciting event.
December 7, 2020
The characters feel like stock illustrations in a moral-philosophy seminar hypothetical... The result is an out-of-whack ratio of acting talent to material.
December 4, 2020
The series is all shades of grey, literally in its visuals and thematically. It's a tangled web about privilege, and there is tremendous tension.

It will do well enough for some chilly Sunday nights, wherever you find yourself biding your time this winter.
December 4, 2020
A solid but unspectacular miniseries produced by and starring Bryan Cranston. The casting is generally superior to the material, which sets up the moral dilemma of just how many rules one judge will bend and break to protect his son.
December 3, 2020
Your Honor is complicated, but good complicated: The impulses of the players are understandable. And even though the means are ruthless and the ends seemingly inevitable, one can still be startled by how things play out.
December 3, 2020
As Your Honor sprawls further out and into the lives of its many characters, it gets lost in the weeds of its storytelling.
December 3, 2020
During the first two episodes of Your Honor, I was just about riveted... Alas, much of what comes after the forceful opening is a disappointment.
November 30, 2020
The story already feels tired at the end of the fourth episode, making the prospect of it having to fill 10 total episodes seem especially daunting, regardless of how good the ensemble is.
