Board Member: We're a little concerned that your director is a drug addict.
Maxine Gray: No, my director is a former drug addict. I myself am a former high school student, and everyone here used to poop in your pants. What's your point?

User Reviews

Amy is Superb!
31 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I missed the show the first time around, but now I'm hooked on the reruns. I watch it every day without fail.

The show evokes joy, pain, love, anger, resentment, forgiveness, sadness, hope. We laugh, we cry, we get the warm fuzzies. In addition to the range and depth of emotion, Judging Amy also has a high level of intelligence. The viewer is required to think.

I enjoy how the complex issues of faith and spirituality are addressed with subtlety, tactful wit, and respectful objectivity.

All the characters have engaging, ever-evolving personalities and the way they interact with each other is incredibly fascinating and real.

Best of all, there's Amy. As a character, as an actor, and as a person she is everything a great woman should be. When I think of Amy Brenneman, all the superlative traits beginning with "s" flood my mind: Smart, Strong, Sensitive, Sharp, Sweet, Smiling, Sexy.

A wonderful woman and a wonderful show.
