Format: DVD
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.

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.

Cool! I get to live out the dream of being the first to review a popular product AND give a rave to the third season of one of my favorite shows on TV. I have to say: I have given a pass to nearly every network series of the past ten years, preferring the more complex and adult dramas and comedies found on cable-TV. But THE GOOD WIFE fulfills all of my requirements for great entertainment: gripping plotlines, complex characters and brilliant acting, writing and directing. Julianna Margulies anchors the show beautifully as Alicia Florrick, and Season 3 gives her great new material to play, particularly at the start of the season with her boss, Will Gardner (Josh Charles). How their affair plays out - and draws in her ex-husband Peter (Chris Noth) and her OTHER boss, Diane Lockhart (the always amazing Christine Baranski) makes for great drama that never descends to soapiness. Alan Cumming expands his role as Eli Gold, now practicing law in Alicia's office even as he juggles his career as a political consultant, and he provides many of the comic highlights throughout the season. Matt Czuchry deepens his portrayal of Cary Agos, having switched sides from defense to the D.A.'s office. And of course, there's my (and probably most other viewers') favorite character, Kalinda Sharma (Archie Punjabi) whose friendship with Alicia went up in smoke at the end of Season Two. The fallout of this event, as well as the other troubles she encounters, make Kalinda appear more vulnerable than ever before. By season's end, several intriguing questions about her character are answered, even as new mysteries surrounding her past begin. Chris Noth and Mary Beth Peil round out the exceptional cast of characters, with Jackie's antagonism Alicia providing some stellar moments.Read more ›
