  • "Catch up" 4OD wrecks "The Good Wife" replays with 5 minute ad breaks.

    In the UK, we get to watch this on Catch Up on 4OD (soon to be "All 4" - from broadcaster Channel 4) & can you believe it? They cut in ads lasting 4 minutes 20 seconds in each break!

    It is excruciating to watch.

    Incidentally, I also think The Good Wife is showing its age - it was hot in the earlier episodes, but now it feels like a pastiche of itself.

    This means you have to watch it with a rather different attitude.

    In the past it was hard-nosed, serious, "we gotta win the argument" legal duelling.

    But now you have to watch it with a half-smile on your face, ready to grin at the next almost ludicrous scene, . the lawyer in the powered wheelchair pulling hard, yet again, on his inhaler, while telling the judge his kidneys have just failed.

    And what happened to the excellent make-up guys? Both Alicia & the Governor's Aide look like they have been made-up by people in a funeral home, in preparation for the coffin lid to be left open, prior to burial.

    Blanched, rather oily faces with crude black eyebrows - both look so gaunt & ready for the grave.

    Such a contrast to the earlier episodes, where their faces were made-up to look far softer & so much less harsh. Maybe they're saving money & ditching the cosmetics entirely.moreless
  • Good but nothing more

    Here we have another typical episodic show with mediocre background series plot. It became a standart these few past years to make these default structure, sadly so widespread. It mostly works economically because it draws numbers, has a good longevity and doesnt require much creative work or creative work at all. What the show excels in, is casting in my opinion. Especially the guest character casting (many from The Wire but other good shows too). The first season i liked the most because it didnt have the need to be as flashy and overdramatize simple things as consequent seasons.

    Its made prefferably for female audience but the story is lacking something original and i see a tendency to use simple dirty tricks on the audience more and more to draw attention not by quality but flashiness.

    Still a pretty decent show so far i am only at S03moreless
  • Tonight's show was disgusting!

    I have always enjoyed watching the Good Wife however, I thought tonight's episode, 'Red Meat' was disgusting and shameful!

    You had Diane kill the deer when she is against hunting. Really? We just can't get away from the bloodlust. Then she ate the deer meat as a victory. Anyone who kills for pleasure is a psychopath.
  • What's the point of Matthew Goode???

    I was done watching the Good wife when Will died. Too devastated, was like a personal loss then I gave it a 2nd chance when M. Goode came into the picture.... Unfortunately, he din't help much well I should say his character is not being developed well. Will!!!!!!!!! should never have died. The script writers are killing the show...... My hands are over my eyes... I truly loved the show.
  • Should not have killed Will

    The show has just not been the same since the death of Will. Sorry to say I am losing interest rapidly. The episodes are tough to watch now. To bad it was such a good show.

    This current half-decade has been an exciting, wild, and invigorating time for television.


    The Good Wife "Open Source" Review: Backfiring

    A case involving a 3D-printed gun created tension for Diane and Kurt, and Alicia was forced to decide whether or not to politically distance herself from Peter.
