Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this legal/courtroom dramedy is entertaining, it revolves around the world of the Las Vegas strip -- so there's lots of gambling, drinking (cocktails, champagne), and other adult-oriented activities (references to stripping, lap dances, etc.). Expect some strong sexual innuendo and images of people undressing and in their underwear. Words like "ass" and "hell" are audible, and violent crimes like kidnapping, assault, and murder are discussed.
Is It Any Good?
The show -- which is based on real-life Las Vegas attorneys Michael Cristalli and Marc Saggese -- couches its storylines within the context of Las Vegas' infamous culture ... and the tough laws that govern it. But while the series deals with serious subjects like assault, drug trafficking, immigration, and murder, it also has its fair share of quirky moments and mischievous adult behavior.
The discussions featured here aren't as technical as in other legal dramas, and some of the climactic moments are a bit theatrical. But overall, it offers up courtroom entertainment that's both interesting and indulgent.
