I have to say that when I first heard of the Bechdel test, I scoffed a bit. Now I don't because after considering it briefly, I realized that indeed I am drawn to those movies and TV shows that have more than 2 female characters, with a name, who talk to each other about something other than a man. And there is no better show than the Good Wife on that score, imo. Really, every scene offers round, fascinating, well-written characters of both genders. But think about it: how many shows do you know where *all* the female characters have an interest or focus on something else beside a man--while still remaining fully female, fully sensual? Where those same female characters explore their own sensual power alongside genuine societal interests? The only reason I'm bummed about Season 5 is that as the number of seasons start racking up on this show, I grow saddened by the thought that it can't go on. Yet, the end of this season shows the entire plot sailing to a new cardinal direction, almost like it's starting anew. Such fabulous writing. I hope it continues for many more seasons with this great crew of writers.

The inaugural episode of this season of The Good Wife is worth a play and a re-play for its tightly wound acting and action. The dramatics are flawless and the script spares not a single word. Even if you have never seen this series before, I recommend you seeing this episode because it is television drama at its best. That includes the synchronization of music, so well chosen, as well as the light humor in the robotic tele-commuter. Kudos all around.

I love the fact that while this is season five of THE GOOD WIFE, directors and writers have created a whole new direction for the program to go. While other television series start to fade out at about the fourth or fifth season, THE GOOD WIFE begins their fifth season with bang and the audience is on a wild ride as Alysia, Cary and the rest of the fourth years leave LOCKHART & GARDNER to begin their own firm. This story-line creates a myriad of new episode possibilities as the two factions begin an all-out war and we have front row seats as the fighting and maneuvering continues to escalate as the season progresses.

They have also added a secondary story-line in which Alysia's husband Peter Florrick, the governor elect, joins forces with his wife's new firm, much to the dismay of his right hand man Eli. Eli realizes that Peter's continuing alliance with the firm could be his downfall and create new controversies as his favoritism may lead him to compromise his gubernatorial ethics. Exciting and fresh, this season could be the best one yet.

UPDATE: This review was more helpful at the time the episode "Hit The Fan" was shown or before. At this point in the series other scenarios have take place which make what I have previously stated to not completely follow the way the plot-line has continued. Please only rate this review with this information in mind.

Insane how good this show is! A season-long story arch. Everything has integrity and makes sense. This show is for the thinking person and deserves a much larger viewership. The most well-written story that is not a motion picture. This is a true feminist's heaven, women actually interacting with each other, regarding their lives and it isn't always about a guy. What a relief! Never mind the superb acting. I rue the day this show goes off the air or off the rails.

This series had me engaged right from the start. It has been great fun and a relaxing way to spend the evening to see the ups and downs of this smart female attorney and her family. The story is intertwined in a number of ways and I found it totally engaging and entertaining.

Please, review the product, not the delivery. There is a chance that your computer is at fault and what we all look for is how is the drama, how do you like the show, the performances, the storyline, not whether your computer worked with it! It is unfair to TGW to give it one star because your volume didn't work. My opinion of the show is that it is excellent, been looking so forward to it, and was not disappointed! It is very rare that one program is so consistently enjoyable.

I love the TGW. Overall, the season is excellent. As always , the issues portrayed are timely and relevant and make you think about the world we live in. The characters remain excellent and mostly true to themselves.

This season focuses more on Alicia's professional life rather than her personal life. Everything is presented in a work-light. This is mostly understandable given that Alicia and Carey have just started their own firm. I really enjoyed watching them become partners as they do remember parts of their first year adversary. Alicia has definitely become a strong women of her own right. But perhaps because her children are older, they seem almost tossed into her busy professional life rather than a very important part of her life. I almost didn't care that Zac graduates in the final episode, they don't talk about looking at colleges, what he wants to do or anything like that.

I was disappointed by the promise of reconciliation between Peter and Alicia at the end of last season and the failure. I am getting a bit sick of the on again off again.

Alicia's relationships with Will, one she nearly purged herself to hide has become Chicago's worst kept secret. I was definitely disappointed with the writing. I found I missed the verbal sparring between Jackie and Alicia as it added a genuine depth and reinforced the tensing between Alicia's personal and professional relationships. I really missed Jackie and hope she is more involved after Finding out about Alicia's and Peter's "agreement".

Overall, the twists and turns of who is in and who is out we're fantastic. The characters, even if you don't like them remain outstanding (even if they turned a little black and white rather than grey this season). The episode on Collin Sweeny left me squirming in my seat, just wonderful.
