      The Evidence — Season 1

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Evidence doesn't add up to a convincing case for continuation, hobbled by a derivative central mystery and obligatory pacing that saps the energy from Rob Estes and Orlando Jones' palpable camaraderie.

      Nancy DeWolf Smith Wall Street Journal If "The Evidence" is a hit, this may be largely due to the chemistry between Rob Estes and Orlando Jones. Apr 17, 2019 Full Review Tim Goodman San Francisco Chronicle Unfortunately, even five years ago "The Evidence" would hardly have seemed meaty. Not rote, exactly, but missing something. Apr 17, 2019 Full Review Matthew Gilbert Boston Globe It all feels inessential. Apr 17, 2019 Full Review Sierra Filucci Common Sense Media The black-white cop duo is a familiar trope, and so far it's played for laughs only, but it will be interesting to see what, if anything, develops from the racial dynamic. Rated: 3/5 Apr 17, 2019 Full Review Gloria Goodale Christian Science Monitor The show is another urban crime procedural peopled with hip, conflicted detectives. Still, good casting and well-paced writing give hope. Rated: B Apr 17, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
