    Nix knows how to dig deeper holes for his folks, while he broadens their motivations, sometimes recognized only along the way. Nix isn't bad at keeping the plot pot percolating, either.

    It makes for thrilling viewing.

  • David Hinckley

    Complications offers a fine ride.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    The complex story, which includes a flashback to 10 months earlier, plus scenes with O’Mara’s therapist and memories of his child’s illness, finds the hero getting in deeper and deeper after impulsively trying to save a life.

  • Jeff Korbelik

    O’Mara is intense as a man backed into a corner, but the series needs to do more with the supporting players.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Complications gets more interesting episode by episode, strengthened by good supporting performances and intriguing moral questions, even if creator Matt Nix sometimes struggles to shape his individual pieces into a cohesive whole.

    O'Mara does his best to inject life, but the show's oddly dour tone simply makes Complications a sad case. [19 Jun 2015, p.57]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The show is gloomily sincere and uneven.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    Outside of its offbeat inciting incident, nearly every storyline is hackneyed.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    When a wannabe TV thriller doesn’t work, the show devolves into a morass of characters making repeated bad decisions, like “Groundhog Day” but without the intentional comedy.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Complications chooses antic over subtlety, banging around from one crazy plot development to another. O'Mara is a very likable actor and Szohr does her very best, but for reasons known only to himself, Nix eschews the black humor that made "Burn Notice" so brilliant, which is too bad.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Despite the strenuous efforts of creator Matt Nix, Ellison (Jason O'Mara) also appears to be trapped in a story that wants to be a movie, and seems ill-equipped to support an eight-episode series.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Amy Amatangelo

    Everything is incredibly serious to the point where it becomes almost unintentionally laughable.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    A series that too often feels like an episodic version of “Death Wish,” only with scrubs instead of trench coat.
