    • LOVE Marissa!!

      9.5
      I LOVE seeing Sarah Steele as the character Marissa. She adds a clever, dry wit to the show and keeps Eli human. I hope she gets more air time in the future! My favourite star remains Michael J. Fox. Thanks Canada!!
    • Why do we skip a week again?

      5.0
      Why oh why do we have to wait for the next episode again? The show just returned after the (too long) Christmas pause and only two episodes in, it skips a week again. WHY? Sheesh!

      Otherwise I agree with most commenters about the over-saturation with politics - we get it, the show is tightly connected to it, but it no longer walks that fine balance of witty and edgy, it's starting to get downright boring. Make it about its string suit again - Alicia detaching from Peter and doing her own thing with other people, reconnecting to friends and having more interesting cases without silly politics getting in the way.moreless

      Love TGW! The writers must release Alicia from Peter, and allow her to finally divorce him. Ironically, this single powerful act, will automatically give what's left of the original cast members, more screen time with Alicia, when the show is at it's best! Alicia can begin to bond again with her children, mom and brother, as Peter would no longer be a hurtful distraction. This way, Eli and Alicia could work on healing their friendship, in recognizing that Peter was the true source of her pain and not a voicemail deletion. She could build healthy relationships with JDM's character, as well as Lucca. The audience would reinvest in rooting for Alicia, both personally and professionally. Ratings would soar for this once, critically acclaimed tv drama, including this season, 8 and beyond!moreless
    • THIS IS NOT THE CBS WEBSITE

      6.0
      I'm trying to figure out why all of you feel the need to comment on this website like you're talking to the producers when this website is not the company that produces this show. The company is CBS. The website for the show is: CBS DOT COM If you have comments directed towards the producers, that is where you put those comments.



      Also, I don't know why all of you are ragging on Michael J. Fox. And the person who said he should retire is just plain rude. He did retire shortly after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's and he took a long time to work through it and if he wants to come back to . then more power to him.



      Oh sorry, also forgot to write my review. Despite the name of the show, I never saw Alicia as THE main character.. maybe that's why they decided to kill off Will. Will and Diane were the pair that I was the most interested in law wise. Of course Will and Alicia were the pair I was most interested in romantically. I've always liked everything about Cary and they can stay the course with him. I'm really pissed that she decided to be a prissy B and leave the firm taking some of their clients not even carrying whether or not the firm would have to close because of that. Also, when she did that it was clear she broke Will's heart.



      And after reading the comments saying that Kalinda is leaving the show too.. I'm just about done watching the series. I've been playing catch up.moreless

      Leave politics out of the show (and politicians). If I want to watch crappy politics I'll watch MSNBC!
