Thanks to Amazon, I became a Good Wife fan a few months ago and binge-watched the first 3 seasons. The actors are appealing and the script is frequently delicious, especially when Peter runs for office or has to do a deal with a devil (Wendy Scott-Carr?) in order to buy credibility. The relationship between Alicia and Peter seems real and complex and just as fraught as you might expect. As a lawyer, the legal bits of this show are almost unwatchable. From the very first season it was ridiculous, but it gets ever more so as time goes on and in this 4th season it's downright laughable. It's like a pointillist version of the law -- if you stay very far away it looks plausible, but as you get closer it looks more and more like nothing. The basics of the cases are interesting, but the timeframes and behavior of lawyers are just insane and unrealistic. Kalinda the magical "law firm investigator" does not have a job found at most law firms and since she transgresses the law regularly, LG would constantly be in trouble. Honestly, no big firm is doing that much criminal work, and especially it's not doing blood and guts criminal work. Still, I watch because although the courtroom drama is terrible, the relationships between and among people do feel real. Law firms do have partners like David Lee, and Diane, and (to a lesser extent) Will and they react in more or less real ways. The personalities of the various judges feel right also. All in all, it's an entertaining show.

I love THE GOOD WIFE. Season One is one of the best seasons of television, period. And the best thing about this show has always been the relationship between Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) and Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi). Unfortunately, two decisions made by the writers have irreparably damaged this relationship, and consequently the series. First, at the end of Season Two the writers decided to reveal that Kalinda slept with Alicia's husband during her stint at the State's Attorney's office two years before the show began. This undermined the friendship that had grown between these two very different women. And second, in Season Four, they brought in new character Nick (Marc Warren), Kalinda's long-lost abusive husband. This guy shows up in the first episode of Season Four as a thug with a criminal record attempting to use Lockhart Gardner to help him get a towing contract from the State. But his real motive is to move in on Kalinda again and get his hands on some money he believes she stole from him.

The problem here is that Kalinda has always been portrayed as a strong and self-sufficient woman. Yes, she was "mysterious," and it was obvious from the start that she had secrets she was hiding, but it seems totally against character to portray her locked in a love-hate battle with an abusive lunatic. While things are left a bit murky as to what Kalinda's relationship with Nick really is, they are shown punching each other, going full-on martial arts with each other, pulling guns on each other, and having what can only be called sadomasochistic sex with each other. In fact, their first "sex scene" looks very much like rape, although it is left up in the air as to whether or not Kalinda was into the whole rape scenario.

fabulous script writers make art, or rather meaningful TV fare, out of crime, the economy, corporate maneuvering, and edgy intimacy. The outstanding cinematography and ensemble acting have turned these great scripts into an epic with a precise economy: everyone is held accountable for their sins, great and small, and paybacks are excruciatingly interesting. It's probably the only show that could have withstood its perilous Sunday night schedule.

Wow, I am so hooked. I have been playing catchup via the Amazon Season purchases and I have had the most entertaining moments this past holiday season just viewing the first 3 seasons and season 4 is just as good as the first three.

This series is one of the best, most intelligent and thoroughly entertaining series on television. It centers on Alicia Florrick, a lawyer working her way in a top law firm after being out of the workforce for many years. She's married to Peter Florrick, a man driven by political ambition, who was caught with his pants down literally, after having had extra-marital affairs, including frequenting prostitutes. He's in the process of resurrecting his tarnished reputation and realizing his desire to be Governor. Alicia does an incredible balancing act between moving up in her own career, with all of its pitfalls and victories, while being the wronged wife who stands by her man in an attempt to salvage her badly damaged marriage. She is, however, her own woman, bright, intuitive and total class. I love this series. Can hardly wait for the new season to begin!

I really enjoy The Good Wife. The acting is consistently good and the plot lines keep me watching. There are often some interesting surprises. I find the recurring guest cast skilled and amusing. It is not high-adrenaline excitement, but it is a solid drama.

One of the best Network Series I have ever seen. Hope it continues forever with the same cast for several more seasons
