The Good Wife Review: "Threesome"

by at . Comments

On the day before Thanksgiving, allow us to give thanks to The Good Wife.

The Julianna Margulies-led drama isn't chock full of suspense or dense with mythology. Instead, it simply relies on solid acting, strong storytelling and the ongoing narrative of a character we get to know better each week.

Among the developments we enjoyed on this week's episode, "Threesome," was the use of Chelsea Handler. This is exactly what would happen if a hooker wanted to strike it rich off her affair with a famous person.

It's also a perfect depiction of how such a viral clip would spread to those surrounding Peter and Alicia, as seen in the clip below:

Two other subplots we enjoyed from the episode:

  1. The introduction of the heretofore unseen firm partner, played by Kevin Conway. This was another example how the show keeps office politics unique and interesting.
  2. The final scene may not have been a "shocker," as ABC hyped, but Alicia passionately kissing her husband was both surprising and understandable. The Good Wife has mastered the small moments in life.

Are you enjoying The Good Wife as much as we are?
