  • Goliath And David

    There was a little bit of comedy courtesy the guest stars, but more importantly there was an interesting case and one that probably takes place in the music industry on a daily basis. Good episode.
  • Another headline ripper

    Good Wife does another headline ripper, with a case obviously inspired by Glee's blatant ripoff of Jonathan Coulton's mellow arrangement of Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back", with a dead giveaway being Glee copying Coulton's lyric change of "Mix-a-lot's in trouble" to "Johnny C's in trouble". (The writers bend over backwards not to drop Coulton's name, ludicrously substituting Rick Astley's, despite their annoying musical analog sounding nothing like his work. Also, failing to sound hip by misusing 'rickroll' like a Phil Dunphy .)

    Their attempt to write hip-hop is about as dire as their attempt to write stand-up comedy last season, made more tiresome by repetition. At least we have the welcome presence of F. Murray Abraham around to leaven this attempt too. Would've liked a little more of him. And Will gets more flustered by Alicia than I'd expect of someone who kept the lid on a workplace affair for months.
