New York Times
September 23, 2019 What happens when you cast Michael Sheen as a brilliant psychopath and serial killer then don't use him for more than eight or nine minutes per episode? We spend the other 30 minutes wondering why he isn't onscreen.Read in Source
September 23, 2019 Prodigal Son is more than several cuts below that Oscar-lauded classic. Still, it's better than chopped liver, of which Dr. Martin Whitly has shown he knows a thing or two.Read in Source
September 23, 2019 The best moments, naturally, occur in the scenes between the manipulative, wily Martin and his brilliant but neurotic offspring, who's haunted by a lingering mystery from when he helped put his dad awayRead in Source

September 23, 2019 I'd be happy to watch any version of Prodigal Son that was entirely Sheen, Young and Payne sitting around talking... If someone would just send me a weekly cutdown that ditched the rest of the show, this prodigal critic might be convinced to return.Read in Source
