The Good Wife, “Oppo Research” Review

Let’s talk about Kalinda. There is plenty of other stuff that happened in the episode: Alicia finally went all-in on running for State’s Attorney, with Eli’s presentation of her opposition research drudging up all her family’s old (and new) secrets; a surprising lack of Cary Agos; Lemond Bishop, Super PAC leader; Grace’s church choir; Finn […]

The Good Wife, “The Line”

Season five of The Good Wife was all about change, expectations subverted like only the Kings can. It was a surprising season of broadcast television, not only from Josh Charles’ exit (Will Gardner, you’ll live on forever through our GIFs), but from the ways the show evolved the characters out of that exit. Alicia, who […]

The Good Wife “Hitting The Fan” – WOW. That was phenomenal.

That’s how an episode of television is done, everybody. What a truly wonderful, phenomenal hour. The Good Wife could have never pulled “Hitting The Fan” off in its first season, nor even its fourth, probably. It’s been working up to this level of excitement and storytelling  for five years now. It earned this episode by […]

The Good Wife “Outside the Bubble” review – This show, you guys. And, also, Christine Baranski.

The Good Wife is firing on all cylinders right now and is blowing me away with how good it is. Sorry, other TV shows, but The Good Wife is just so brilliant and probably my favorite show currently on the air. No joke. Tonight’s episode was such a treat. Any show going into its fifth […]

The Good Wife Season 3 Review – Let’s Talk About The Ladies, Shall We?

I don’t get why The Good Wife hasn’t reached the same caliber of acclaim that Mad Men or Breaking Bad has. The show is just as cunning and well written as the other two shows, and definitely just as smart. Most of the characters in The Good Wife are morally corrupt and grey, but what […]

The Good Wife Season 2 Review – I really love this show

The Good Wife season 2 has been my favorite so far. Some very strong cases of the week, a nice political campaign, and, if you can believe it, even more character development. We pick up right where we left off: With Alicia’s decision. Eli makes it for her as he pushes her into Peter’s arms […]

The Good Wife Season 1 Review – A very fine character study

Many of you probably don’t watch The Good Wife. Heck, you probably don’t watch anything on CBS, right? Well, I’m here to plead with you to watch The Good Wife. I just finished season one and devoured it in a matter of days. I will be reviewing all four seasons before the fifth season premieres […]
