  • Alicia testifies.

    7.0
    A bit too slow-moving at point, but still the most hard-hitting, accurate attempt at recreating the legal system for our television enjoyment.

    I found myself a bit uninterested in Diane Lockhart's performance in the court room, which seemed phoned in and without much effort. Christine Baranski's acting credentials need no introduction, so seeing this mailed in performance was a bit unsettling and I'd prefer they had Will Gardner in the box more.

    What I did like was Alicia one-upping the lawyer, proving that even if she was called as a witness she is still craftier than anybody when it comes to the US legal system. A good empowering moment for her character, and the development continues with her mindset. Does she or does she not want husband Peter back?

    Solid episode overall, just a bit dry at times.
