    After the show delivered a stellar episode last time around with the revelation that Peter slept with Kalinda way back when, the show did not live up to the hype with the followup episode. The argument between Alicia and Peter just did not live up to what I was expecting.

    And can someone tell the writers of the show that most people use the word "call" and not "phone." Just saying. Everyone says "I phoned him" on the show and it is not realistic.

    The Good Wife was not bad at all tonight, an interesting little case, but it did not receive the time it deserved. Too much Alicia sobbing, not enough courtroom fighting.moreless
  • Great Show, !!

    Did not like the previous episode with all the fake political comments. But loved this one, this is what I expect from the show.

    Would really love to see alicia and Will have one night together. these 2 should be kind of together. I mean no living together, but dating.

    Will needs someone that challenge him and is current girlfriend just is not enough. Alicia just need to let her hair down for a while, and she knows will from before as well as seen quite a few side of him that she does not agree with. But she is aware.

    I think she deserves to have a full and happy sex life for a while with someone who will not look elsewhere whilst with her.

    Anyway, let see whats coming next weekmoreless
  • This episode was very good.

    I think Alicia over reacted to her husband infidelity. Crying was unnecessary. All she had to do was talk to her husband about what happened. It shows that Peter thought that she had betrayed their trust and slept with Will. I thought that their marriage was on the right tract and I also think if Alicia wants to have a life outside the home with a job and family she has to take the good with the bad. Alicia loves her job and her children and I'm sure that may be in conflict some day. I love the way the writers throw everything at you. It keeps the public alert. Sooner or later everything is going to surface and I wouldn't be surprised if Peter goes after Will. Peter made a very big mistake going after other women when he had the best one right at home in front of his nose. I think too that you can learn so much about the American legal system from this show. I am really happy if Cary comes back.moreless
