For that episode alone I would not recommend for the youngest. To be honest season 2 tainted what season 1 got right.

Watched the first season with my eldest and it was heartbreaking.  I think kids have it much tougher now.  Yes, they might have the latest IPhone and £100 trainers, not to mention the make-up I buy my two (cost and arm and a leg), but society as a whole is far more judgmental.  Kids are brutal and with social media bullying is rife.

I’ve seen it, very sad but well written. My youngest got me to watch it. Seems wherever there is social interaction there’s an opportunity for bullying.

Have you seen Season Two?  I heard it is far more graphic so putting off watching it until we can all watch it together.  Youngest is thirteen and I've said she can watch season 1 with me during these summer holidays.  I know rating is 15, but I think she will have seen worse on Hollyoaks.

No, I’m putting off season 2. It can be overpowering and summers for lighter viewing.
Catching up with Modern Family season nine I think, we love it! Mr Green

Eldest watches it but I'm not keen. I watch a lot of Criminal Minds, Line of Duty etc.

I think I’m saturated with crime dramas now after the Closer, Goodwife and Body of Proof.
I am now convinced that I’m a detective/lawyer/forensics expert.

Which would you recommend out of the three? I'm looking for something else to watch.

I bet you made your Dad proud. Even when I'm mad at the girls I love them to bits.

All three but Goodwife is my favourite, then the GoodFight, a spin-off.

Dad was really strict, overly strict and very unreasonable at times but he had a good heart so I knew I could reason with him once his bark stopped. Kids know when they’re loved but showing some affection is important.

I will go and check if it's on netflix.

I'm not overly strict and quite chilled. I do ground them if they do something out of order and we have rules. Still a cuddle monster (when allowed) and say I love them everyday, more than once.

We tend to do what our parents did affection wise, that’s why some are more comfortable than others at showing it. You sound like a lovely dad. thumb

I saw a play called Twelve Angry Jurors recently...It is adapted from Twelve Angry Men... It had a profound impact on me and showed me how one's prejudices can lead to life/death moment for the victim of the said prejudice.

There used to be a tv programme about lawyers, juries and the accused. It was like the play you describe. It was really frightening. I'll try to remember what it was called.

Did it show jury deliberations? That would be amazing to watch. I've seen a lot of lawyer dramas,etc The Practice and the shoot off Boston Legal is my favorite!
