Editorial Reviews

THE GOOD WIFE is a drama starring Emmy Award winner Julianna Margulies as a wife and mother who boldly assumes full responsibility for her family and re-enters the workforce after her husband's very public sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail. Pushing aside the betrayal and crushing public humiliation caused by her husband, Peter, Alicia Florrick starts over by pursuing her original career as a defense attorney. As a junior associate at a prestigious Chicago law firm, she joins her longtime friend, former law school classmate and firm partner Will Gardner, who is interested in rekindling their former relationship. The firm's top litigator and other partner, Diane Lockhart, likes Alicia's work and her connections so she and Will award her with a full-time associate position following a trial period. Alicia beat out Cary Agos, a clever young attorney who takes a job in the state's attorney's office, now bitter and vengeful. Alicia finds an ally and a friend in Kalinda, the firm's tough and mysterious in-house investigator. Gaining confidence every day, Alicia transforms herself from embarrassed politician's scorned wife to resilient career woman, especially for the sake of providing a stable home for her children, 14-year-old Zach and 13-year-old Grace. Now that Peter is back home and planning to run for office again with help from Eli Gold, his cunning image consultant, Alicia continues to redefine herself and her role in her family's life.

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.

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 commented on another reviewer's statements regarding the unfortunate decision to take Kalinda's character down the wrong path. The addition of an abusive husband who has some type of sick hold over an otherwise strong character did nothing to enhance the mystery of Kalinda. In fact, it diminished her character. I don't think the writers really understood the strength of the character they had created. Whatever they intended her to be, Archie Panjabi took her beyond that scope and created a truly unique and memorable woman. It's no wonder Panjabi left the series after Josh Charles, and now, Julianna Margulies appears to be leaving as well. Even the Kings are leaving. In my opinion, the problems start with not fully appreciating the complexity of Kalenda's character. The decision to portray her as just another of Peter's conquests to damage her friendship with Alicia was the first of several miscalculations in developing the character of Kalinda Sharma. The writers took the easy way out with Kalinda and focused on superficial sexual encounters rather than providing more substantive character development. There are still many fine episodes in The Good Wife. But the heart has gone out of it.

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.

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!
