    The Good Wife wrapped itself up with Alicia completely and utterly alone. Good job, show! [eye roll]

      I hate that this is the last season I have watched for years but this season just isn't the same maybe I liked Alicia owning her own firm. I don't know it just seems different
    • 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
