Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pearson, a spin-off of the popular series Suits, is about former New York attorney Jessica Pearson after her return to Chicago to start a new life. Starring Gina Torres, it's an edgy drama that features mature themes ranging from government corruption and family dysfunction, to illicit affairs (with plenty of sexual innuendo), unbleeped swearing, and drinking (wine, cocktails).
Is It Any Good?
This show combines political intrigues, legal plots, and uncertain relationships to a create a drama that is darker and edgier than its parent series. Jessica Pearson is strong and not readily likable, but also reveals a sense of vulnerability as she tries to find a way to reconcile her professional life with her personal one. Throughout it all, the series addresses larger social issues, especially as they relate to the deep divides between Chicago's poorer black neighborhoods, and Chicago's history of political corruption. If you were a Suits fan, no doubt that you'll enjoy it. If not, you may still find it entertaining.
