I normally stay away from anything "horror" related. But, I am a criminal minds fan. Yes, I knew that it looked very silence of the lambs in the beginning, but I stuck with it and was thoroughly entertained. Michael Sheen was amazing! I hope the rest of the season continues this well.

Just watched the final episode and I'm blown away. It can't end like this! This last episode had me on the edge of my seat. I pray Netflix, Hulu or another station picks it up. Everything about it is absolutely phenomenal and I'm saddened that Fox couldn't see the brilliance of the cast and writing.

I have not been so captivated of a network show in a very long time!

I LOVE this show and all the craziness that goes on!

From the first episode, I was grabbed by the story of Malcolm Bright and his family (Eternally bummed with the short seasons, though!).

Lou Diamond Phillips' character, Gil, and Malcolm have a fascinating relationship, as well.

But mom (Bellamy Young) and sis (Halston Sage) have some surprises!

The supporting cast is solid.

This is a show of twists and twistedness, humor and heart.

I am extremely upset that this brilliant and creative show has been cancelled.

Though FOX seems to have a history of cancelling most of my favorite shows... on their network.

I hope it gets picked up by another network!

I noticed that many of the less than great reviews are based on just watching the pilot, or a few episodes. After watching the first few episodes I wondered where it was heading, and was not yet hooked. But as I keep watching, every episode make me like it more. There is the weekly murder mystery, as well as the ongoing backstory.

While some people might compare this show to Criminal Minds, it's different. With Criminal Minds it is more of a good guys catch bad guys type of show. The last show I like as much as this was The Mentalist, the main character had a way to get into people's minds, and is not afraid to take it to the extreme. With Prodigal Son, much like the Mentalist, the main character has a perspective on the criminals based on personal tragedies.

I do not watch much television. Every year there are only a few shows that I make a point of watching. Prodigal Son has become one of those shows for me

One of my favorite new shows! Such great casting and each week it gets better!

I hate procedural detective shows. But I love Silence of the Lambs. It reminds of Hannibal Lecter show which makes me drawn to it....I don't know why..It's not something I would consider as greatly executed show. But it builds up to something. I love Malcolm character. I don't like show focusing on his sister or his mom. I want it to be simply him and his father but apparently it is not where the show takes us to. Anyway, I admire actors and I hope the show will go beyond norms and bring something nasty and horrific like "Hanniba"l did. I hope they won't deviate from Malcolm. He is charismatic. And there is a lot to explore in the relationship between son and a father/killer.

I hope there's going to be a Season 2! Totally hooked

I really liked this show! Has a lot of action, some humor, and suspenseful. With the two seasons it has it is off to a good start and I always look forward to watching this show even if it's not live (but on Hulu) and it's interesting to see the new ways the surgeon influences the story as well as how Malcom is reacting with him.

tHeRSN 20 May 2021

This is one of the best tv shows with great actors/actress. You must continue episodes If Fox can't appreciate this. At least you should to end this properly!! Not like this.
