Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that certain scenes of this legal drama graphically depict serious crimes such as murder, complete with some blood and implied nudity. The show also lifts the lid off of the sometimes-unorthodox tactics that high-priced lawyers use to get a leg up on their opposing counsel -- unethical behavior that some parents might feel is too iffy for kids.
Is It Any Good?
Justice is well-acted and -- like CSI and Without a Trace, which are also produced by Jerry Bruckheimer -- suspenseful and engaging. But it goes a step further with slick cinematography (in one scene, viewers watch an elevator descend in its shaft, then segue inside the elevator) and quick scene changes.
That said, while Justice offers viewers an eye-opening look at the inner workings of criminal defense law, its more mature elements -- violent crime scenes, crude language, characters who don't mind compromising their ethics to get ahead, etc. -- might give parents pause.
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.
