Critic Reviews

  1. 38
    O'Donnell is humorless, formless and vacant; Goldberg is manic and grating.

    Too many moments feel false, overblown or contrived.
  3. The show is neither funny enough to be a comedy nor dramatic enough to be an engaging drama.
  4. Had "Boston Legal" not perfected the art of office insanity, "Head Cases" ... actually, nope, can't even say it would have a shot in that circumstance.
  5. "Head Cases" has good leading men but a crushingly bad premise.
  6. 20
    One of the more embarrassing new series this season.
  7. The predictability and triteness of "Head Cases" make it difficult to type even a sentence in favor of any part of this series.
  8. The title could have many meanings, but primarily it refers to the people, all 27 of them, who might find something to like in this misfit buddy-lawyer dramedy.
  9. This is David E. Kelley on his worst days with wildly improbable plot developments and much forced humor.
  10. 0
    Most of the shows now on network television, whether repugnant or tolerable or actually worthwhile, are competently and professionally directed, edited and photographed, but "Head Cases" is a mess even as a piece of storytelling.

    This is a good show. Needs to develope the characters but has possibilities.
