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.

This legal show has quite a bit of sexual content

This show has a lot of cases of sexual crime and there is sex in the lawyers office but not shown. It's heard or implied.
not rated for age

Good TV

I love this show and have watched it since the initial episode. I love Denny Crane and Alan Shore!! They make the show the hit that it is. If you love Court dramas you will definitely love this show!!!
