Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this quirky legal drama is laden with sexual innuendoes and references to drugs and alcohol. The inappropriate suggestions and dialogue also contributes to presenting an unrealistic depiction of the workplace.
Is It Any Good?
Thanks to engaging storylines and witty writing, adults will find Boston Legal entertaining. Each episode takes viewers through several unexpected twists and turns and is skillfully acted by a top-notch cast that is often joined by popular guest stars (in the past the list has included Dana Delany, Heather Locklear, and Michael J. Fox). That said, this show is definitely not for kids. Almost all of the jokes will go over their heads, and the parts that they can absorb will surely be wholly inappropriate.
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.
