It's been a tumultuous season on The Good Wife, and we can't wait to see how tonight's finale will play out.
Have you always wanted to get into The Good Wife, but haven't gotten around to watching all of the episodes? Have you seen most of the series and just need a refresher? Are you just really, really obsessed with all things Julianna Margulies? There's no bad reason to watch this!
Tonight marks the end of The Good Wife's wonderful second season (really, despite its missteps, this is still one of the best shows on TV), and the episode's synopsis and previews promise two highly titillating things: 1) Alicia and Kalinda having to work together to exonerate their client of murder, and 2) Alicia and Will smooching it up in an elevator. Oh. My word.
Just when I thought that I couldn't love this show any more than I already did, they went and added Scott Porter to the cast. Between one of my favorite Friday Night Lights alums being a new investigator who seems to get under Kalinda's skin and Gilmore Girls' Matt Czuchry getting to play a real rival to Alicia this season, I'm a very happy camper. Throw in Alan Cumming getting to manipulate people to make Chris Noth's politician husband not look like a total asshole and the very charming Michael Ealy (yes, I am the person who watched Sleeper Cell) as the head of the recently merged law firm, and this season might even be better than the really solid first season.
I really wasn't smitten with this show from the premiere the way that some people were. I thought it was solid acting on a decent show, but didn't really find it compelling to watch again. I think perhaps it was the "ripped from the headlines" aspect that seemed irksome and like it would get old quick. However, I was recently convinced to give it another chance, and now I'm actually hooked. Not because I've suddenly become fascinated with the political aspects, since the whole Chris Noth storyline is still my least favorite part. Let him rot in jail for all I care. It's an interesting set up for some of Alicia's emotional issues, but what really appeals to me is the actual legal drama. It's smart, well-written and well-acted. I've been consistently impressed with the law firm and the way they handle their cases.
