Reception

Howard Rosenberg of the Los Angeles Times gave the "forgettable" series the "Big Greenback Award", "for foisting formulaic cretinous TV on viewers under the guise of environmentalist drama". Scott D. Pierce of the Deseret News called the show an "absolute stinker". "Bad writing. Bad acting. Bad directing. E.A.R.T.H. Force has it all." Ray Richmond of The Orange County Register said the series is "painfully banal" and that it "resemble a kind of socially conscious knockoff of The A-Team. The acting is stiff, the plot contrived". Richmond also speculated that CBS was never confident in the series to begin with since they only ordered six episodes, rather than the usual 13, and they scheduled the premiere against the 42nd Primetime Emmy Awards. CBS also scheduled the series on Saturday nights, a near certain death sentence. John Martin of The Providence Journal called the series "pretentious" while noting the obvious conflict between the message and its medium. Martin said "saving the environment can only be accomplished by changing the habits of consumption". "In television, encouraging consumption is Job One". "Don't look for a TV series to point the finger at its advertisers".
