My admiration and respect for this series has waned.
The third year episodes have become convoluted in terms of plot.
The Good Wife appears to be getting shallow and sensationalized.
I find this year's episodes have deviated from the fundamental story line.
The writing apparently changed. The plot is becoming ugly. At this point
in time it seems significant characters are filled with the destructiveness of envy,
and a need to hurt each other. Why should Diane care so much about Will and
Alicia having a romantic relationship? And why wouldn't she approach them,
rather than discussing insurance increases and hold sexual harassment classes.
It is after all 2011, not 1990. It's as if the story line jumped tracks. Simplicity
and good common sense has its place in television--if I wanted to watch a
soap opera, I would.

Not my favorite episode. 4points. I like Carrie Preston as Elsbeth Tascioni. And relationship between Lockhart and Gardner.

And I miss Calinda. More Calinda.

I like then Calinda, Cary, Alycia, Will and Diane in one scene.Wont More!!! You feel connection between them. Of course its a little bit strange but atmosphere is great. Really?

CP was so great, hope more of her! Caitlin still so annoying. She was to set off Alicia's very old, very unlucky? Vicious writer!Dana was ok, I like her,She did not dazzling beauty, but competent firm.Diane was the queen!

If I were Peter I would take Will around the corner and castrate him that might get the point acrossed you don't mess with a married woman while she is still married."

How can troglodytes like this still exist?? (I guess that "acrossed" is an indicator of the intelligence we're dealing with here, though.) Alicia is not "a married woman", she's a SEPARATED woman, who kicked out her cheating rat of a husband (that would be PETER) when she learned he had been was screwing hookers and co-workers during her marriage.

Peter is in no position at all to get all judgmental about Will. His marriage ended because HE couldn't keep it in in his pants, not because Will is the guy she's chosen instead. And the fact that he's still trying to harass Will about something that happened fifteen years ago in another jurisdiction (and he'd paid it BACK!) shows us what a jealous and vindictive jerk he really is.

There is NO WAY Alicia is ever getting back with that sleazy creep unless she has a lobotomy first.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't understand what the whole Dana got a better job story line was about. She doesn't have a job now? Did she ever have one? Somebody help!

Agree with Peter. Doesn't something have to happen more then once and regularly for it to be a pattern..they just want us to accept it without questioning. For the most part the writing holds up well then occasionally you get this weird bits which don't work. I love this show but wish it would the writing would stay tight and consistent.

Grace is a device they seem to be using to introduce issues or plot devices to allow other characters to get "easily" from point A to B. Its evident Peter is driven primarily for revenge against Will because of Alicia. Grace being there in his office and her comments suddenly reminded Peter why he needs to appear not personally involved in the hunt for Will - a clear indication about his motives which Will called him out about. Peter hadn't even considered the kids in his consideration about going after Will, only just now.

I like that Alicia is where she is at. She is having to grow up very soon to face reality that her lover has secrets he won't/can't share with her. Also there is a very real possibility she may have to leave LG or be asked to leave LG because of all the conflict of interests. Just the good wife growing up.

Cary - love that he is smarmy and vengeful, but obviously still has soft spots..going to make for a very interesting LG offensive. Can't wait. But i must have missed something - there was a comment about his sleeping with co-counsel - are they referring to Dana? and if so, when did this happen?
