Jun 24, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The show tries to mix acting with challenges- The "contestants" are clearly actors- at points they are so unbelievable that I laughed when I really wasn't supposed to. The redeeming qualities on the show came from he enjoyment I got watching my least favorite character get kicked off and the hot guy being the smartest character- but seriously- Drowning... really?)… Expand
Jun 24, 2013It's clearly that a few of the cast members are actors, Not very good ones mind you. It is an interesting show though and I can't wait to see how it plays out.
Nov 23, 2013It is proabably the most stupid fun you can have with a TV show. Yes it's stupid, but in a good way. It's kinda of cathartic to watch people kill each other for 13 episodes. It's not a must watch, but it isn't bad.
Awards & Rankings
We know the body convulsing on the floor of the grand foyer isn't really being electrocuted. And yet we get sucked into the suspense and the gore as the players express fear, anxiety and tearful protests against being the next to die. ABC's amalgam of drama, murder mystery, parlor game and elimination competition for money is a curious mishmash.
Though Whodunnit? wants to give ordinary people the ability to step up and use their brains to solve a crime, the results (as of the first episode) are either painful or unintentionally funny.
The cast seems no better, or worse, than any reality TV assemblage, but the clues are delivered to the group in such a way that much of the pilot is spent watching them troop, mostly en masse, from one room to the other. It's not terribly exciting.
