Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The underdogs win... and that may not be a good thing.

Spoiler Alert! Parents should now that the drama of show comes from setting up near impossible cases, and having the heroes passionately argue their way to victory. That's not necessarily a good thing. In the first season, a man executes his daughters killer, admits to his crime, and is found not guilty by a sympathetic jury. Far worse, an 18 year old has sex with a 13 year old (nothing is shown), and, despite being charged with statuary rape, is acquitted by the judge after he and his victim declare themselves to be "in love". The episode ends with the rapist, the 13 year old, and the lawyer, gathered in a hospital to celebrate the birth of the couple's child.
