Rosewood - (S02E01)

Drama . Crime . Mystery

A new captain shakes things up at the East Miami Police Department, and Miami's young, hot-shot mayor gets personally involved when his promising young mentee is mysteriously murdered.

  • Ed Bark

    Rosewood can be fun in spots, but more often is way over-cooked.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    If Rosewood is unremarkable, there is still a place for unremarkable television in the mental life of the culture. (Creator Todd Harthan worked on USA's amiable, undemanding "Psych.") And if Chestnut and Ortiz don't exactly burn up the screen, they are not hard to take, like the show they live in.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Rosewood tries so badly to create the next prime-time super couple, but the duo at the heart of this awkward crime procedural are less together than they are apart.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    The only original thing about Rosewood is that the flashy, genius pathologist with a dark secret is, in this case, a black man, and the tough yet vulnerable cop playing across from him is a Hispanic woman.

    Slate Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The show has a certain sunny Miami gloss, but that doesn’t blind us to the generally perfunctory script, the flat pacing and the useful but unremarkable dialog. Everyone involved really deserves better, including the audience.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Vicki Hyman

    Chestnut, a reliably charming presence on screens small and large, is by far the best the thing about this painfully conventional procedural that borrows aethestically from "Miami Vice."

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Joshua Alston

    Beyond the tired, will-they-yes-of-course-they-will dynamic between Rosewood and Villa, the show’s premise is weirdly thin. There’s no macro-story, and Rosewood’s only other element is a character attribute, not a story driver.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Scott D. Pierce

    Rosewood isn't awful. But both Chestnut and the viewers deserve much better.

    The Salt Lake Tribune Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Rosewood still seems like something you’ve watched before. It’s like Burn Notice meets Royal Pains interrupted by Cops.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    The first murder they investigate suggests that Rosewood will be a drama as bright and shallow as fresh paint on stucco.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Rosewood brings nothing distinctive or memorable to the formula, aside from the welcome diversity of its cast.

    The Huffington Post Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Dr. Beaumont Rosewood [is] a grating piece of work.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    Morris Chestnut is pretty, and so is Miami, but this show wastes them both.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    Rosewood is a snooze and a half. The dialogue is awful, the series largely humorless, and every move that happens in the pilot is something you've seen done better elsewhere.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    The show has a strong, likable cast--Mr. Chestnut, in particular, seems to be having fun--but when cliches pile up faster than clues, it’s time to change the channel.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Mark Peikert

    At its worst, Rosewood plays like the kind of ridiculous, over-the-top drama with which a sitcom character becomes obsessed. At its best, it offers its audience the chance to feel smarter than its characters.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    Other pilots this fall are worse, but few are more middling.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Chestnut does make for an attractive lead, but the series leaves him smartly dressed up (medical scrubs, apparently, don’t go with the billboards), with no place to go.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    A derivative procedural with uninteresting, annoying characters and boring plots, it has little to recommend, save for its glorious shots of Miami nightlife.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    Rosewood's pilot is stuffed with hackneyed setups, tedious exposition and character quirks galore.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    A crime-fighting Miami pathologist who likes to smirkily show up the cops with whom he works as unscientific dumbasses--sort of like Neil deGrasse Tyson with a badge, and in just as much need of having his eyeballs slapped out. Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    Rosewood is so generic it does a loop-de-loop all the way through inadvertent self-parody, landing back on mere mediocrity again.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    There’s hardly a crack in his veneer or any ironic punch line to his act--we’re just meant to accept him as the coolest man in Miami. As such, he’s just another dull, pretty detective who solves his cases too quickly.
