Review this tv show
Jul 12, 2013The show is called Motive. Enough said. Who wants to find out how a crime happened when we already know who the killer is? That already took the fun out of it for me. I care what the motive was but the could easily be a 5 minute show. Just ask the killer what the motive was and be done.
Awards & Rankings
Motive flounders chiefly, however, because it expends lasting suspense by providing the audience with all the hard facts they need up front, subsequently granting them an invitation to leave the party early.
The characters don't feel any richer here than they do on CBS' various cop shows, and the series doesn't even commit to how much it wants to keep you guessing about why the crime occurred.
