Audience Reviews for For the People: Season 1

  • Dec 09, 2019
    Loved it. Angry it's cancelled
  • Sep 22, 2019
    I absolutely love this show. It is a refreshing look behind the scenes of the US justice system, with fully developed characters and interesting cases. For the People stays relevant, referencing real-life issues with the people emotional tuning.
  • May 20, 2019
    It's actually good
  • May 12, 2019
    Do not cancel. One of the best shows on tv. RENEW
  • May 09, 2019
    I really like this show; the only thing I can't stand is that every relationship has to be either interracial or gay. It's so lame and boring.
  • Apr 24, 2019
    I love this show. They take real life news events and the amazing cast really makes you think about the issues. I highly recommend this show for anyone looking for something new to watch.
  • Apr 09, 2019
    The show has more going for it than meets the eye: it touches on some sensitive subjects as the latest episode shows on Season 2 -- the corruption of judges receiving kick-backs for sending juveniles with minor offensives to a 'for profit' institutions.
  • Aug 23, 2018
    excellen show I really hope it's not true that it's been cancelled
  • Aug 21, 2018
    The strength of this show is in it's ability to create fierce and unapologetic female leads who balance the drama with an inherent sense of morality. It excels where law shows like Chicago Justice have failed because it is fast paced, smart and thought provoking. It is no longer about good and bad but rather the grey areas which call into question all that we think we believe in. Do not underestimate the capacity this show has not just to entertain but to make you think.
