Last summer’s revelation that the National Security Agency is monitoring millions of people’s phone calls and emails was the inspiration for last night’s episode of “The Good Wife.” Watch …
“The Good Wife” launched its season with an episode titled “Everything Is Ending.” It’s true in one sense: the show’s familiar dynamics are changing. But in fact, it’s an episode about beginnings. Peter is starting his tenure as governor. Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Cary (Matt Czuchry) are preparing to start a new firm. While the episode […]
“The Good Wife” ended its fourth season with a game-changing cliffhanger: The series protagonist Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) is leaving Lockhart-Gardner, the law firm where she has worked since the series began, to start a new firm with another Lockhart-Gardner lawyer, Cary (Matt Czuchry).
“The Good Wife” is gearing up for Season 5, and the first wave of casting news is on the docket.

“The Good Wife” ended its season early Sunday night with the episode, “What’s in the Box.” It set a standard for excellence in season finales that will be difficult for all subsequent shows to meet.

This week’s episode, “Death of a Client,” took a page out of “Revenge’s” playbook right down to the red dress and the barbed dialogue and did it better than its higher rated competitor. It was smart, sophisticated, hilarious, sexy, and possibly the greatest St. Patrick’s […]
This week’s episode of “The Good Wife,” “Invitation to an Inquest” was a rather pedestrian effort, by this show’s lofty standards. The highlight was the promo for next week, which looks epic. I suspect “The Good Wife” is about to outdo “Revenge” in the Fancy Parties Where Women Wear Red Dresses department. But first we […]
In this week’s episode of “The Good Wife,” “Going For the Gold,” Alicia discovers the less than glamorous aspects of her new role as Equity Partner at Lockhart-Gardner while stepping up to be Peter’s true partner when his gubernatorial campaign hits a snag. It’s also one of the funniest episodes of the season, and definitely […]
