  1. Fans of the Pretty Woman shopping-montage scene... will be pleased with Windfall for sprinkling in splurges both decadent and dutiful... But... Windfall is smart enough to tighten the screws immediately.
  2. It's an enjoyable, intriguing look at what can happen to a group of ordinary, cash-strapped people who wake up one day as multimillionaires.

    "Windfall" is not the greatest show to hit the summer circuit, but not the worst either.
  4. 40
    I hope future episodes don’t feel as if somebody took three hours of material and reduced it to one.
  5. For every story line that intrigues, and every character that sparks some interest, there are several others that don't.

    An unsatisfying and predictable jumble.
