Ben Dowell – Times (UK)

One can imagine this one going on forever. Full Review

John Anderson – Wall Street Journal

Lee Child knows the character is preposterous. So does this TV show. Full Review

Rebecca Onion – Slate

Reacher doesn’t suffer from any illusions about its objectives, serving up an unpretentious action series that’s as much a course correction from the movies as an extension of them. Full Review

Brian Lowry –

Like Reacher, Ritchson also feels strikingly new to the area, but you cant stop noticing him. It doesn’t get old to watch his brain compute, and see his fists respond. Full Review

Nick Allen –

Call me retrograde, but I found Reacher entertaining. It clips right along, is reasonably suspenseful and has a vivid cast. Full Review

John Powers – NPR

Ritchson is the epitome of Reacher. Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Michael Hogan – Daily Telegraph (UK)

Pour yourself a black coffee, sit back and enjoy. Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Lucy Mangan – Guardian

“Reacher” will never be more interesting than Reacher, and he may have finally found the medium that fits too loosely over his big-and-tall frame. Full Review

Joshua Alston – Variety

Though this first series doesn’t end as strongly as it begins, Alan Ritchson showcases the right mix of acting chops and physical presence to successfully bring Lee Child’s hero to life. Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Amon Warmann – Empire Magazine

The television equivalent of an airport novel. It’s not going to challenge your expectations, but it will fulfill them in a mostly satisfying way. Full Review | Original Score: B

Scott Von Doviak – AV Club

It spends eight episodes paving the way not to hell with its good intentions, but to mediocre television. Full Review

Bill Goodykoontz – Arizona Republic

Ritchson’s 12-pack is a physical manifestation of a tonal problem: His Reacher is smarmy and pleased with himself, rather than casually secure in his own vast abilities. He’s a generic vigilante who just happens to look like a mountain. Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Alan Sepinwall – Rolling Stone

I prefer the Amazon version, and I wouldn’t mind another season, but I’d probably still rather read another book. Full Review
