Minority Report - (S01E03)

Drama . Crime . Action . Sci-Fi

The future is coming.Based on the international blockbuster film by executive producer Steven Spielberg and the first of his films to be adapted for television, Minority Report follows the unlikely partnership between a man haunted by the future and a cop haunted by her past, as they race to stop the worst crimes of the year 2065 before they happen.Set in Washington, D.C., it is 10 years after the demise of Precrime, a law enforcement agency tasked with identifying and eliminating criminals…before their crimes were committed. To carry out this brand of justice, the agency used three precogs – "precognitives" Dash, Arthur and Agatha – who were able to see the future. Now, in 2065, crime-solving is different, and justice leans more on sophisticated and trusted technology than on the instincts of the precogs.

    If Minority Report is a satisfying stew of crime drama and sci-fi adventure, the seasoning is sly wit. Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Sharp, slick and brimming with visual tricks, Fox’s Minority Report is a trippy sci-fi crime procedural.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Fox is pairing Minority Report with an amped-up second season of Gotham while sending former Monday night incumbent Sleepy Hollow to Thursdays. It looks like a solid one-two punch of crisp, stylized cop dramas that are visually resplendent without losing sight of character development.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The pilot episode efficiently sets Minority Report up as a promising episodic drama that should pair well with the network’s other Monday drama, “Gotham.” Only a pre-cog can say for sure whether the show will have legs, but signs point to yes.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Arthur and Agatha flit through the pilot, barely registering. In fact, no one registers. They're all line drawings in service to some very nice special effects and a pilot that's already tangled up in way too many plot tangents.

    Science-fiction meets crime-solving buddy drama in an extension of the 2002 movie.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Some of the best shows on television are character-driven procedurals, but Borenstein seems so eager to establish the procedural that he underplays the characters.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The futuristic visual effects are mildly entertaining, but the story line becomes tedious and morally defanged by the end of the pilot.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    I don't know if [Philip K.] Dick would recognize this story, or if fans of the 2002 Tom Cruise movie will flock to this Cruise-less sequel, which isn't terrible, just ordinary.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    [Minority Report] is on the whole competent, watchable and frequently fun--if entirely predictable.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    At its heart, beneath all the high-tech whiz-bang CGI, Minority Report is a procedural crime drama with serialized character relationship stories threaded through it.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Neither the actors nor the script do much to breathe new life into a recycled idea.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    What’s initially arresting about the concept remains unfulfilled after the pilot, and while it’s understandable that the producers needed to first establish its central characters, Dash and Vega aren’t particularly well-drawn thus far, creating a concern that this show will be more interesting theoretically than it is dramatically.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Erik Adams

    Unlike the show’s trio of siblings, the audience isn’t psychic, so everyone’s explaining what’s on their minds at all times. It’s an easy mistake that a lot of speculative fiction makes, erring too far in the direction of bringing everyone up to speed.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rob Lowman

    Peppered in are some humor, like funny references to the past when Lara’s mom saying she met her husband on Tinder, or when Dash uses his abilities for more than seeing crime, like knowing when bird poop is dropping. However, you wish that the show would have been less zippy, less procedural. It hints at dire aftereffects of Precrime, but doesn’t go much beyond that.

    Los Angeles Daily News Full Review
  • Ted Pigeon

    Minority Report's reverence for the material that inspired it undermines its own attempts to explore and build on the environments and sensibilities it labors so intensely to recreate.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    The pilot of Minority Report, which will have its premiere on Monday on Fox, jettisons everything disturbing and thought-provoking about the film to turn it into a humdrum, slickly bland crime procedural.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    The end result is ... merely OK.

    The Huffington Post Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    Minority Report is a straightforward cop show, with a familiar dynamic between the eccentric genius and the by-the-book detective. It’s gone from counterculture literature to generic network TV.

    Las Vegas Weekly Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Cut through the window dressing, though, and it’s just another way of putting fresh paint on a procedural.

    Variety Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    A watered-down and considerably less meaningful iteration of the 2002 Steven Spielberg science-fiction movie

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Zach Hollwedel

    As it stands now, the case-of-the-week approach is as hackneyed a take on Minority Report as FOX could have come up with.

    Under The Radar Full Review
  • Keith Staskiewicz

    Minority Report is networky to the extreme. Bland heroics, banter with all the snap of wilted celery, characters that are the sum of three adjectives and are so effortfully congenial you can practically see the studio exec’s red ink on their foreheads reading “More likable,” and, of course, that odd pro-authoritarian bent that most cop procedurals (except maybe Person of Interest) end up adopting.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Vicki Hyman

    The CGI is still pretty cool, and some chuckles are wrought from the futuristic premise (Iggy Azalea is considered a classic in 2065), but at its heart Minority Report is a by-the-book cop procedural with turgid writing and complete absence of subtlety.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    The dialogue is leaden and cliched--"You forget," Agatha warns her brother: "The only future you cannot see is your own!"--and some of the whiz-bang technology from the film looks less impressive now that other movies and TV shows have had 13 years to copy it into present-day.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Spencer Kornhaber

    The show itself, while existing in a sleek future of advanced technology, is a bit clunky. It hews to the most obvious tropes of case-of-the-week shows about oddball visionaries partnered with law-and-order sharpshooters, and in the first hour at least, doesn’t pay its audience much respect when it comes to the plausibility of dialogue, character motivations, or the security procedures at a mental institution for former future-convicts.

    The Atlantic Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    Minority Report disappoints because, in its first episode at least, it is uninterested in the very idea that enlivened the film: that precrime could be wrong.

    Slate Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Besides Sands's performance as Dash, a likably frazzled ingenue who hurls himself bravely into action but has no physical skills to speak of, the production design is the best (maybe only) reason to watch Minority Report.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mitchel Broussard

    Fox’s version is so relentlessly uninspired, especially in comparison to the original (and I hate to keep beating that drum but nothing exists in a vacuum), that even as a mediocre hour of television it doesn’t warrant investing in.

    We Got This Covered Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    There’s no chemistry at all between Good and Sands. The pilot is limp and lifeless, and while you know that the trajectory of the series has to somehow involve the precog kids getting back together, but by the end of the pilot you won’t really care one way or another.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Alternately bad and laughably bad, Minority Report is one of the few new fall shows that can probably be fairly judged on the basis of its pilot alone: There are so many things working against it, it’s hard to imagine how the show could be better, even if Fox had sent out more than just its first episode to critics.
