Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the reality series Partners in Crime about two lawyers contains some brief discussions of alleged murders, illegal drug use, and other activities relating to criminal defense work, but the show mainly revolves around friendship and family. There's some strong language (including some bleeped curses, blurred rude gestures, and drinking (wine).
Is It Any Good?
Partners in Crime offers a voyeuristic look into the lives of Gallucci and Gelormino, whose fame comes from taking on and successfully defending high-profile cases. But most of the show's focus is on how they spend their time outside of work and the close relationship they have with each other and their families.
The lawyers occasionally talk about some of the weirder cases they have, no doubt as a way of making their jobs sound more interesting. But there's also a lot of lighthearted humor, too. It's a fairly slow and basic reality show, probably best for true legal enthusiasts.
