Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This so-so series attempts to adapt Jefferey Deaver's tension-filled cat-and-mouse story into a conventional police procedural, with less than great results. Unlike the successful 1999 film adaptation, Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector is forced to rely on secondary storylines, some of which revolve on characters' private lives, in order to keep the story flowing from episode to episode. But rather than enhancing the backbone of the story, these plot lines are predictable, and rely on flashbacks and CGI to increase the show's hype. As a result, viewers are left with a crime drama that's only mildly entertaining.
