Critic Consensus: Copper has an intriguing premise and handsome production values, but it's somewhat undercut by a lack of character development and an overabundance of exposition.

Weston-Jones excels as Corcoran and, almost as if born to don the clothes and mannerisms of the time, inhabits the role like a pair of well worn leather shoes.
The show's co-creator, Tom Fontana, worked on Homicide, another atmospheric crime drama set in a tough city, and the dialogue is satisfyingly rich when it's not overburdened with exposition.
Those [dialogue] imperfections never jolted me out of the spell Copper casts.
