What The Critics Say (Metascore 44)

  • The weekly cases aren’t going to dazzle, based on the pilot. That means the cast has to shine, and it only flickers. — Matthew Gilbert, Boston Globe
  • Atwell is skilled, but with just 42 minutes and a whole murder case to get through, her First Daughter backstory and the wide net cast for her character feel a lot like grasping at distant, barely visible straws. Still, Conviction is a fun watch, and a series that will likely resolve its initial hiccups. — Sonia Saraiya, Variety
  • A law procedural so paint-by-numbers it’s like everybody gave up halfway through and added terrible colors out of boredom. — Tim Goodman, The Hollywood Reporter
