I'm not liking the direction the show is going. It was really good the first 3 seasons and the 4th one was alright, but it is lacking in this new season. i don't like how immature and out of character they make Will out to be. I still really like most of the characters but i hope they do not turn this show into soap opera. the show is good w/o the unrealistic drama.
Family stuff, business stuff, courtroom stuff, political stuff... this show is full of stuff. Wonderfully cast, lots going on, it's a great show, not a good show. Julianna Margulies is just perfect as the humiliated wife getting back to her roots and building a new life for herself, and in the process building a different kind of relationship with her husband.
Jason O'Mara and the Irish accent, ugh! Do we really have to be subjected to that every week, it didn't work in any other show he's been in so why try it now? Have watched since day one as well and writing has really gone downhill.
The last show was an insult to any adult with a brain. What receptionist is going to left alone in a NEW office complex, and why would she let stangers take furniture out without checking with someone. She should have fired. The "New" partner in is a big jerk, who is writing this garbage for a show that started out so good. I have been a fan since the very first show and it is one of the very few I tape if I am unalbe to watch. Let's get back to a good story line.
The scriptwriters need to get rid of that shark before they find themselves forced to jump over it.
Acto the last two episodes ("Hitting the Fan" and "The Next Day"), Will intends to make Lockhart-Gardner into the biggest law firm in the US. That's fine, but what's his first step? He wants to "crush" Florick-Agos, a tiny new law firm. Hell, L-G's executive committee is bigger than Florick-Agos's whole firm. So, to get the clients of _one_ tiny law firm WIll wants to start a war with the Governor-elect? Really?
I know that David Lee and WIll are pissed off about Alicia's behavior. I don't blame them: her actions were unethical. Frankly, she should be disciplined. But this is counter-productive; it's going to make Lockhart-Gardner weaker, not stronger.
If they don't abandon this theme, I'm probably going to stop watching. It's that bad and that unbelievable. First year, I would have given this show a 10 rating, right up there with the first few years of BtVS or The West Wing. But this plotline is just bad.
It is so difficult to watch The Good Wife it always starts late and you have to sit around and wait for it to begin. If you try to tape it,the whole show is never taped,because it never starts at the scheduled time. AND YOU CAN'T STREAM IT AS THE PICTURE BREAKS UP AND COMMERCIALS PLAY OVER AND OVER AGAIN WITHOUT RESUMING THE SHOW. CBS IS RUINING THE SHOW!!
Which is a rarity. I think the show has a good dynamic and is generally not boring. I think there are may shows that are similar to this one but nothing else that manages to actually be a sophisticated TV show these days. Its unique. Worth a look.
After being reluctant to watch it for several years, this christmass i gave it an opportunity and i think it is a fantastic show, to watch both alone and with the girlfriend. To be honest i am a bit tired of lawyer tv shows, and the title made me think it would be a chick tv show, but it is fun and intriguing. I hope the show follows a more political path.
For me this show is just faultless and highly addictive. It has some of the strongest performances on TV even from Chris Noth. My particular favourites are Julianna Margulies, Alan Cumming and the superb Archie Panjabi who's character Kalinda is by far the most fascinating character to have graced my television in a long time. What does irk me is some of these OTT comments about bi-sexuality and so-forth, it is an adult show that deals with adult themes, warts and all so just grow up and deal with it, stop whining about trivial matters that take nothing away from the show whatsoever! Like any good show it evolves and some go grittier than others because the writers and actors have the backbone top do so. Long may this show continue :)
I love this program but I don't like the time interruption if a program is scheduled for a certain time it should appear at that time your killing the program by not putting it on at it's scheduled time STOP the delay in scheduling
Can anyone tell me the name of the song that's playing while the credits are rolling, something about wearing red lipstick when you said goodbye? I tried to search it but can't find anything, sounded like a British group. Driving me crazy. Really good song. Thanks!
I just read this show may be in trouble because of ratings to com[ete against other shows. How can any show compete because of time slot when you never know when it will start? If you record you must record following shows, forget watching live unless you are an Amazing Race viewer or any other show as sports that always runs into this time slot. Many have opted to viewing via internet for this reason. This is a great show that has it all from drama, love interests to suspense and I look forward to seeing. With all the shows being considered for cancelation, please move it. Where it is would be great IF it started on time but only see the same frustration with ANY show they would replace it with. Viewers, speak up, please.
since the networks and cable channels have decided to go cheap on us and make 99 percent REALITY TV shows, wrestling (on sci-fi!!) and are always cancelling great shows... i have cancelled my cable and no longer watch any tv... i download all my shows i like off the internet and have started watching alot of bbc shows from england. I'll not sit in front of the box and watch crap in the evenings after working all day. I want quality or nothing at all from the networks / cable channels. I SUGGEST WE ALL BOYCOTT THE TV for one week each month until the REALITY CRAP is taken off the air. That crap causes brain damage... it's totally unacceptable. No one is stupid enough to enjoy that crap except some inbred bigfoot half-breed. They want to produce the cheapest crap possible and still retain the ratings to get sponsors and advertising dollars. Don't give them the appearance of ratings by watching at all. Turn off you cable / sat and download... NO Commercials!!! and only watch what you want to watch when u want to watch it... been doing this for 4 years now and it's great. Only problem is, running out of shows to watch. Sci-Fi channel, now si-fi (junk now) sold out and became a cess-pool putting on fantasy and wrestling crap... was once the best channel on cable... anyways,
boycott cable / networks and download from internet...
watch ur shows without commercials or interuption...
hope the networks realize they're loosing their loyal viewers because we're NOT dumbing down and
we HATE reality TV crap...
screw u a-holes... you're idiots and you're gonna kill ur networks/channels if you keep on this way
What else is there to say? Far from being just another legal drama, far from being another soap, this horribly-titled show even has humor in it. The evolution of the Cary character was brilliant, we watched him grow up season after season. "Mr Big" is good too, and it's wise not to over-use him, small doses are a Good Thing. Christine B is one of the best female actors around, she can do anything from slapstick to serious.
I love Kalinda's character as well as other female characters on this show. I am not disgusted by her bisexuality or other practices. But I have to say, when the husband showed up, I thought she would make him somehow "disappear", giving a new plot, or a self-defense murder court situation, or something like that. I was defenitely NOT expecting this boring husband situation that I dont know where it goes, and for me, it does not match the Kalinda we have been knowing so far, or add any interest to it. Maybe the goal is to end it up with a murder anyways, but then they screw up the writing, because all these scenes with him do not add anything at all. Her antagonism with previous investigator Drake was much more intense and credible. Here, I dont understand where she stands or what she's doing. Luckily there is so much more to the show to still give it a very high rating.
The is a very well written story with compelling characters and story line. But increasingly, the side show of Kalinda with her lesbian encounters and violent clashes with the estranged husband have nearly persuaded me to tune out permanently. Honestly, sticking your fingers in your wife's anus and then shoving them into to her ice cream cone?
Get back to the drama of the firm and the contending loyalties of being married to the DA. There is plenty of material to explore without this. Even Kalinda's character is a great addition to the story. Please stop the gratuitous domestic violence and bi-sexuality.
This is an excellant show with a strong cast and great plots. HOWEVER, since the show moved to Sunday nights, it never starts on time because it follows sports games. Please return TGW to Wednesday nights so that we can enjoy the show instead of dealing with the constant frustration of "what time" will it be on. Thanks, mayokko
I did write a comment earlier giving this show 3 points rating, which was unfair! because in reality it deserves much higher rating points, but the reason was that the name of the show did not match the event of the story.
When naming the series as the "Good Wife" It should means either because the husband was bad or the wife is outstanding individual, which is not the case in both scenario, in the matter of fact the husband have proved to be a better person than the wife in some circumstances, and if we were talking about the cheating, then the wife has done much worse than the husband by sleeping with her college sweetheart (out of love versus just for sex, which the husband has done).
The writer(s) noticed the mistake they have committed and tried to correct it by separating the two sweethearts, but the damage has done, and the only way to keep this show in track with its current name is to add some excellent quality to the wife in order to classify her as a good person (outstanding) because all what she has done until now is what an average decent wife usually (or should) do in the same circumstances.
The bottom line, this series is one of the best realism show I ever seen, and I am correcting my rating to 9.5 just for the story line, acting, writing and directing, and if the name matches the event in the new coming season 4 then this will definitely deserves the 10 point marks.
I am almost finished with the first season, and am so happy that I have 2 more to go. This show just gets better and better with every episode. The law cases they have are entertaining, but the back story is just incredible. Political set-ups, lies and scandal. Makes for great entertainment. And, there is not one cast member as of yet that i don't like.
The writers of The Good Wife have done an excellent job of giving us a show with interesting plots, sharp dialogue and evolving characters. Generally an engaging and enjoyable weekly drama. However, I do have a "nitpick," which I think is worth calling attention to because popular shows and popular actors serve as important role models
(whether we like it or not) to millions of young people. So here it is: when you write dialog
for characters, such as the ones in this series, who are supposed to be highly educated,
you should not put appallingly bad grammar in their mouths. I'm referring to the ubiquitous
misunderstanding and misuse of subject and object pronouns. Regardless of how many people are involved, verbs and prepositions still must be followed by object pronouns.
So when you are talking about something that is "between us," it's correct to say "between you and me." Saying "between you and I" is putting a subject pronoun, the "I", after a
preposition, "between." That's equivalent to saying "talk to I," instead of "talk to me."
