    I most say, this episode was good. Not only had it totally new storylines and possibilities what were not explored before - I mean another man showing interest in Alicia and the other things in firm. The show is really picking itself up and doing it in nice way.



    The case was good. I mean, it had something different. They trying to win by using constitution and then finding another way. The idea itself is good. And the scene, when the represent it to the judge, was enjoying.



    And if not that was enough, then there was quite interesting storyline with Zach who has been picking things into his own hand and trying to figure out what is going on.moreless
  • This episode gets 9 from the casting of Chris Bowers as Ryan! He was cute, sexy and charismatic and he had great chemistry with Juliana M! Bring him back!

    This episode gets 9 from the casting of Chris Bowers as Ryan! He was cute, sexy and charismatic and he had great chemistry with Juliana M! Bring him back!



    I like them bringing in a potential love interest for Julian. It softens her character and makes her seem more then a long suffering wife, mother and a robot. She can come acorss as a little too stoic at times.



    In this episode, we at least see her coming a little alive with the paring of her with Chris/Ryan. They should bring him back and build on this story arc. He adds on to her character developementmoreless

    The Good Wife continues to carve out its niche on a pretty boring Tuesday night overall. Pressing storylines that are original and haven't been done yet, as opposed to Law and Order which is struggling to create fresh stories after 20 years. I guess that is a little biased as one show is still in its infancy and one is legendary, but people need to start watching this show.



    It literally feels like you are in the courtroom. Most shows feel scripted and unnatural, but this just feels like a real life look at the Chicago law scene. The only problem is that the real legal process is often long and drawn-out and the show, maintaining accuracy, accentuates that point. I admit to watching the clock at times during the episode, but as a whole I was still thoroughly entertained.moreless
