There seems to be a tendency to think that ANY TV show that we watch and like should automatically warrant a five star review rating. I have never felt that to be so and would accordingly rank the various shows I watch on a regular basis from 3-5 stars (most falling into the 4 star designation). I say this in preface to my comments about the third season of CBS's ratings challenged but critically acclaimed drama "The Good Wife" because it is a show that has improved substantially since its debut. Almost instantly, critics lauded the Julianna Margulies vehicle for its timely presentation of a political wife scorned. As Margulies set about restructuring her world, the first season was a mix of politics, family, workplace, and courtroom drama. Margulies masterfully juggled the intracacies of the varying plot threads, but not all things were created equal. In my opinion, the element that really made the show stand out was Margulies relationship with her husband, Chris Noth, and other aspects of the show were certainly less compelling. The program, however, has become one of the richer and more rewarding endeavors on TV over the next two years. (For my taste, I'd rank Season One at 3 1/2 stars, Season Two at 4 1/2 stars, and Season Three at 5 stars).

The twenty-two episode Season Three is easily one of the smartest and most surprising entries on the network TV landscape. While Margulies is still front and center, "The Good Wife" has skillfully developed the most talented and reliable supporting cast of any show on contemporary television. While this sounds like hyperbole (and I hate hyperbole), I honestly think that it is true. Margulies starts the season contemplating a new relationship with Will (Josh Charles) but the promise of this love affair may be more enticing than its payoff.

I am delighted to report that Season 3 of my favorite network-TV drama is as consistently top notch across every episode as Season 1 and Season 2.

As Season 3 opens, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) has emerged with greatly increased confidence in herself, both as a woman and as an attorney at Lockhart/Gardner, after the intense personal and professional struggles she endured during Season 2. She has left her husband Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) after finding out he had a one-night stand years ago with Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjaba), the firm's mysterious private investigator. In spite of the fact that Kalinda did not know Alicia then, this explosive revelation makes it impossible for Alicia to be anywhere near Kalinda without feeling an overwhelming urge to scream at her friend or burst into tears--which is a real problem since they have to work together on cases at Lockhart/Gardner.

Kalinda, who normally is a really tough nut, is shown at the end of Season 2 visibly heartbroken over losing her friendship with Alicia, which was clearly one of the closest relationships she'd ever had. On the heels of what Alicia sees as a double betrayal, she has kicked Peter out of their apartment and dumped him and his possessions into an apartment she obtained for him without his prior knowledge. As apparent retaliation, Peter, who has just been re-elected to his old office as State's Attorney, strictly because of Alicia's high-profile loyalty and support during his campaign, has hired Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) to be his second-in-command.

This show never disappoints. Every episode is well written, engaging, humorous, interesting and very entertaining. Some TV series seem to fizzle out after the first season but not this one. It's still as great in the third season as it was in the beginning. I highly recommend it.

This show is really excellent. I never imagined that a show about lawyers and courts could be so good. A show doesn't need any shooting or explosions to be riveting, it just needs a good story and great character development -- which this show has week after week.

Update 1/11/13: I wrote this review for the first episode only, at the beginning of Season 3 when the DVD set for the season was not available. Amazon since cross-posted this review under the reviews for the whole season, so it appears as if I wrote two reviews for Season 3, which I actually did not. On to the review for Episode 1:

This show remains consistently high quality! Season 3 gets off to an exciting start with this initial episode titled, "A New Day."

Coming off of all the struggles of Season 2, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) has emerged as much more confident in herself both as a woman and as an attorney at Lockhart/Gardner.

In her personal life, Alicia has left her husband Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) after finding out he had a one-night stand years ago with Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjaba), the firm's private investigator. In spite of the fact that Kalinda did not know Alicia then, this explosive revelation makes it impossible for Alicia to be anywhere near Kalinda without feeling an overwhelming urge to scream at her friend or burst into tears--which is a real problem since they have to work together on cases at Lockhart/Gardner.

Kalinda, who normally is a really tough nut, is shown at the end of Season 2 visibly heartbroken over losing her friendship with Alicia, which was one of the closest she'd ever had. On the heels of what Alicia sees as a double betrayal, she has kicked Peter out of their apartment and dumped him and his possessions into an apartment she got for him. As apparent retaliation, Peter, who just got re-elected to his old office as State's Attorney, strictly because of Alicia's high-profile loyalty and support during his campaign, at the end of Season 2 hires Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) to be his second-in-command.
