Review - The Protector Season 1 Episode 1 Pilot

The Protector is as generic as it gets--about the same level as Lifetime movies. Ally Walker plays a divorced mother of two and detective, and it only gets worse from there. The police procedural elements are very basic--uninspired interrogations, hunting leads, office conflicts, female buddy to talk to--and it makes for a boring plot to frame the rest, which isn't much better. The family life is also rife with cliches--cool brother with an alcohol problem, kids dealing with living in a new place--and leaves much to be desired. The end result is a bland hour of television which drags on far too long. I can normally entertain procedurals of all sorts, but this is just too bad even for me.

Score: 6.5/10
