    The Evidence needs more distinctive twists to stand out in the overpopulated crime lineup.
  2. It's funny, I was just saying how there aren't enough procedural forensic/police dramas on TV these days. [24 Mar 2006, p.64]

    Estes and Jones are appealing, slightly underplaying their buddy shtick. In a galaxy far, far away, their act might click. But in our universe of cop show overload, they're just another team grappling with grisly violence and unrepentant evil.

    Even if The Evidence were the first show of its kind, it would still be mediocre.

    The very definition of generic.

    You can pretty much watch this show any night of the week under its other titles, CSI and Law & Order.

    [A] shamelessly derivative cop show set in the shamelessly overexposed city by the bay, with high-school-play-level acting performances which help make the overall effect cornier than a cornfield in Kansas. And yet ... and yet, there's something appealing about ABC's new cop drama.
  8. In the pilot tonight, one of the clues has nothing to do with the murder, and that hardly seems fair, though "fair" in another sense might be the best way to describe The Evidence. Unless you want to go for "poor."
  9. The show's main characters are all too familiar.

    Would love to see "The Evidence" back on the airs. These critics need to let the viewers determine what we want like, and furthermore Rob Would love to see "The Evidence" back on the airs. These critics need to let the viewers determine what we want like, and furthermore Rob Estes has a presence on screen and needs to have more of an opportunity to showcase his talents. Full Review »
