The Good Wife > The Good Wife Review: They Got Served > Comments Page 2
I think it was the best episode of the season so far. Very dynamic and with a very good story. I laughed a lot, and I loved every moment of it. Keep doing episodes like that, because they make this show above average and of superior quality.
Loved this episode as well! Kalinda and Alicia working more together, Eli being Eli, David being a jerk and Diane holding it all together. Loved the museum scene and all of the "server" drama. Only criticism - the writers needed to include Will telling Alicia about his case when he solicited her help in finding an attorney. That would have have been, perhaps, less suspenseful, but it would put a correction on her softening position towards Peter Florrick. She is on to what is going on knowing Wendy Scott Carr is involved but still...Loved seeing Cary, loved, absolutely love Lisbeth Tacioni and know that the face off with her and Wendy Scott Carr will prove to be very exciting. No more Grace and religion, please. And, what happened with the plot points around Zack and Nisa that I read about....
I've loved "The Good Wife" from its beginning. Kudos to the writers-they are truly amazing. Just love the characters, the ones you love and the ones you just can't stand... and then Cary does something nice. Bryan Brown, as someone else has said, Yumm!!! Really good choice. Love this show - Smart, sassy, and totally engrossing.
I love Will Alicia being together. It was good to see them being comfortable with each other even after the sad & all-too-sudden break-up. Wld like Will & Alicia to hook up again at some point in time but with Alicia being involved emotionally & being able to acknowledge it & not forcefully restricting herself only to the physical side of it. That was what was irksome in the initial episodes of S3 where it felt like Alicia was using Will for just a purely physical relationship while not allowing him access to any other part of her world. Because of this the interactions between them, which used to be great in S1 and S2, seemed detached and somehow restricted in the 1st half of S3. Coming back to today's episode, everybody seemed to hit the ball out of the park & the episode truly rocked. Highlights - Diane having Will's back, Will & Alicia being concerned for each other, David Lee at his bitchy but hilarious best, Eli being irritatingly combative, Elsbeth being
loving that Eslbeth Tascioni is finding work outside of "True Blood"...this actress is remarkable and i always look forward to her interactions on screen! Kudo's to Good Wife for casting her! and i will look for her in True Blood come this June again!
Fabulous episode. The Will/Alicia thing has been a little overplayed and a tad tedious recently - but this episode was a gem.
One of the best - and showing how venal, corrupt and unpleasant lawyering is.
But where is the pro bono team?
Love Will's Counsel. She is the absolute best.
This is the greatest show. i look forward to each episode and will be devastated when the season ends.
the episode was fantastic. nothing to criticize.They finally gave Diane some long overdue screentime and she rocked as per usual.They brought back one of my favorite characters Elsbeth. The case was gripping and interesting. Eli and David were hysterical..which shows you can pair Eli Gold with any character and it's bound to be Gold. Just enough of the Florrick kids. Kalicia friendships is improving and Cary swooped in and was awesome. Seeing as I personally go back and forth between loving him and disliking him it was a fantastic moment.
Fantastic episode. Flawless and engaging writing and acting. Loved that the episode focused on the firm. Welcome back!
i can recall the last time i enjoyed an episode of the good wife, but last it was one of the great one. keep on
I haven't watched this or the the last episode because I lost interest in the Will/Alicia drama as well as Alicia in total. From reading the input here, I think I may have to go to on-demand and check out the previous episodes. I always liked Alicia, but not so much this season. Glad to hear she is warming up to Calista.
OMG! the best part was seeing Bryan Brown again YUM!!!!!! Here's hoping he keeps serving!
This was an absolutely terrific episode - I didn't want to miss a minute of it - so much going on - love that Elsbeth Tascioni is back - she is really great - can't wait to see her go up against Wendy Scott-Carr - I loved that everyone was involved last night - the scenes with the partners were so good - can't say enough about it - it was just so good!
Loved this episode. So glad to move away from the Will and alicia romance. I loved see Elsbeth back and all the partners. I like seeing the strong story line and more of all the partners--less of Alicia and WIll.
Like you, I prefer the legal wrangling and back room politics to the soap opera of personal relations. For that reason, this episode got my top score for the year. I also liked seeing Alicia screwing up. She is not always The Good Wife or The Good Lawyer of The Good Whatever. I particularly loved the sparring between Eli and David. Great dialog. And it was great seeing Diane as competent and clever but very human.
Speak for yourselves please! I know I do and I'm still very much a Willicia fan. I also like the back stories of the characters lives being mixed into the procedural dimension of the show. It is what makes The Good Wife so good, which is the writers ability to develop and bring balance to a procedural format that is also character driven. There is nothing "soapoperish" about well developed characters. It keeps them from being the larger than life humanoids commonly seen in purely procedural shows. Whenthe characters are multidimensional it creates a sense of realism (when well executed) and the Kings execution is exceptional, when weighed against the tripe that is on tv.
Having said this, I do agree that last nights show was superb; and, while it was a move away from some of the previous developments, it will play a key role in moving those things along to their ultimate conclusion.
I just find so many of the reviews
The Kings are back (Robert and Michelle) with help from Corinne Brinkerhoff. As this was easily the best written episode of the season.
Elsbeth Tascioni " Call back, if you can hear me. Call back."
Love her, so here's hoping more Elsbeth and Will..
I have to agree I loved this episode. The Good Wife is stronger when it focus on the firm and the cases. This case was great because it involved everyone. Also watching Diane as the matriarch of the firm was great. And no Peter and the Florrick kids even better.
This episode was really different. I love it. I think we are fed up with all the family and love crap we were given lately. This was a break we needed.
Cary surprised me, I have a feeling that he will ask for something in return later. Diane might get a new boyfriend? :) Who knows? Elsbeth Tascioni is amazing. She is really great.
I agree with you Matt, this was just my kind of episode too. I hate the soap opera aspect. Although I like Alicia and Will. But it was much more exciting this way.
