Basic premise of the show is okay with the scriptwriters and producers following the age old narrative of the absent husband.Why the hell cant you rewrite the script showing him leaving the FBI and taking a legal position or LA based private defense contractor position and put him in the damn script more often. I'm tired of these damn scriptwriters showing a black household with no husband.CHANGE THE NARRATIVE!!!!!

Another courtroom drama, where the judge takes some matters under her own control to make the system more fair. This is an interesting twist, and some of the cases have been interesting, but there is something lacking in the overall presentation which I believe viewers will pick up on. Much like "The Code", another recent cbs courtroom series, there is something not quite right about All Rise.

If they had 20 stars I'd give this show that. Nothing like it. It's a down to earth show. There are so many relatable stories. The cast is fun to watch and always bringing their A game. I am so glad OWN picked it up. It's definitely worth the watch.
