  • Is she ever going to die

    7.0
    Jackie is fast becoming the biggest B in television. She makes Alexis of Dynasty and Angela of Falcon Crest seem like Mrs. Cleaver. She's been holding a grudge against the woman who had an affair with her husband 25 years ago. Talk about being vindictive. I wonder if she doesn't want to relive the affair or the reminder that her husband sought something that she couldn't or wouldn't give him. I know Will is being killed off; I'm not if it's because Josh Charles who played him wants to go or if the show is trying to stir things up. If it's the latter why couldn't they use Jackie instead. If I ever wanted someone to die it's her.moreless
  • Whack-A-Mole

    7.5
    A good new character in this show, but I thought they made him a little bit too over the top. This was a very strong episode overall though.
  • Beginning to lose interest, too ridiulous.

    1.5
    The show has taken a stupid turn, how can someone walk into an office and take all the furnishings, with no repercussion. And the bickering between the two is a little bit over the top.
  • A new clown in town.

    8.0
    There seems to be a big contrast between the situation in LG ( I don't like the new name) and in Florrick-Agos. At the beginning of the chapter we can see the gloomy Florrick-Agos office meeting where they apparently get on well enough and the luxurious LG table where they have plenty of food and quarrel much more. It's obvious that none of them can have it all.



    I don't really know what to think of the new guy says he's not dangerous and she knows what dangerous is ,but he tells too many jokes and wants women to like him , which may not be so bad somewhere else but it is not so right in a law firm. I just don't want him to be the new clown in town.



    Jackie, on the other hand , has shown her real power. I felt sorry for her, and sorry for Alicia, you know: Like father like son.moreless
  • Back and Forth Again.

    10
    All this back and forth with Florrick / Agos and LG is doing my head in, the actual case of Zayeed which Florrick / Agos won over a internet website called Scabbit (and then at the end the Judge asking Alicia out for coffee). Then we have Will hiring Damian Boyle (Jason O'Mara who I do like as an actor) and Diane asking Kalinda to vet him, I wonder what secrets she will find (that was a low blow to do that to Alicia by stealing their furniture and their case). But Florrick / Agos you know how this game is played, its really time you started to play dirty as well seeing how you both worked at LG. Put Jackie in the she annoys basket with David Lee. Another Fantastic Episode. Love This Show. Thumbs Up.moreless
