Killer Women

Drama . Western

Killer Women takes us inside the dangerous world of the Texas Rangers from a female perspective. Molly is committed to finding the truth and seeing justice served. In a male-dominated world, she is aided by her sixth sense for why women kill -- rarely out of hatred, usually for what they love. Standing squarely behind her is her boss, Company Commander Luis Zea. Molly also has the support of her loving family, including her brother Billy and his wife Becca. On the verge of getting divorced from her narcissistic husband, Jake, Molly relishes her newfound freedom as she begins an affair with a sexy, dangerously handsome DEA agent, Dan Winston.

    It’s not doing a whole lot of work to examine the role of women in society, but it is a show with a single and still-novel goal: to entertain women, without patronizing them.

  • David Hinckley

    As the title declares with pride, the show has a lot in common with old-style drive-in second features at drive-ins.

  • Ellen Gray

    The show's action-packed and wildly improbable, but Helfer looks as if she might be having fun, and if you don't think too hard (and wouldn't rather be watching the gunplay in "Justified"), you might, too.

  • Hank Stuever

    Like all shows set in Texas, Killer Women is cooked through with too much yee-haw sauce and a whole lot of urban-cowgirl chic, but Helfer ably carries off the assignment and keeps the momentum going.

  • Gail Pennington

    It breaks absolutely no new ground, but it's lively, fast-paced and enjoyable enough, if you like this sort of thing.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Jeanne Jakle

    If you can overlook [that most of it was filmed in New Mexico]--not to mention all the Texas stereotypes--the new hour from executive producer Sofia Vergara of “Modern Family” fame is a fairly amusing cops-and-killers romp featuring lots of easy-on-the-eyes actresses and references to San Antonio, Alamo Heights, Bexar County and the Hill Country.

  • Hillary Busis

    A by-the-book series that is way less fun than something executive-produced by Sofia Vergara has any right to be. [17 Jan 2014, p.62]

    This is Texas, y'all. And you may very well feel like you've been to this rodeo before.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Executive producer Sofia Vergara, better known as Gloria on ABC’s “Modern Family,” and series creator Hannah Shakespeare (“The Raven”) have a lot of ideas, but there isn’t a single surprise in the batch.

  • Alessandra Stanley

    There is some archness in Killer Women--the opening scene looks like a Robert Palmer music video from the 1980s--but no real humor and still less suspense.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Killer Women is Cagney & Lacey without Lacey and with an all-female criminal cast--along with a higher proportion of saps than the ads would have you believe.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    At heart, Killer Women is a procedural drama with a surface-strong female protagonist; scratch the surface and it's the same easy, familiar programming.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    While the premise might appear to be plumbing some of the same culture-clash depths as FX’s “The Bridge,” in other words, it mostly settles for being an old-fashioned procedural.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    Both [Killer Women on ABC, "Intelligence" on CBS] feel like paint-by-numbers hours, unsatisfying offerings that are difficult to recall an hour after you've watched them.

    Denver Post Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    It's all pretty retro and forgettable.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Expect nothing new under the sun from a drama set in San Antonio, filmed in New Mexico and falling flat wherever the cameras might roll.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    A clunky, clichéd Texas-based crime drama that has the added bonus of being unforgivably sexist, never mind that it was created and produced by women.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lori Rackl

    Neither pilot [Intelligence or Killer Women] left me with a desire for more.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    It's more video game, than TV drama.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The performances are OK, and it would be nice to see Helfer in better material, but the scripts are not just cliche-ridden--they're moth-eaten.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    The worst new show of 2014 can take solace that there are still 358 days left for another one to exceed it.

  • Tim Goodman

    This is a really bad show. It’s a show so bad that if it was smart enough to be a spoof, it would be genius. But it’s not.
