The Good Wife > The Good Wife Review: Passing Judge-ment > Comments Page 3
The episode felt like filler, treading water for the season finale. It's got a lot of plot threads to wrap up in one more hour, and I'm afraid they'll be treated in a very cursory way next week.
did anybody else think that the final exchange between the two judges was weird and meant sth more? and when the judge claimed that his co-council was with him all through jury deliberations he actually meant that they were lovers? i don't know this case just left me wanting more to be revealed about the judges life, i kept waiting for him to admit sth to Alicia and i applaud that they didn't bow tie everything into a neat ending but i just wish it wasn't quite SO mysterious.
Kalinda's story line was a long time coming. this Lana began having tension with Kalinda ever since season 1 when Kalinda refused her job offer and managed to get info out of her.
Peter's campaign is going to have many twists and turns - gotta save it for the Fall. Ditto, it seems, with Jackie and the house. The writers keep a lot of irons in the fire. Did Cary fall out of favor with Peter just because of the romantic involvement with a coworker? I remember when Cary was, I thought, Peter's go-to guy for tough cases. Overall, I love the tension in the show: once you understand the agendas of each character, every development raises lots of possibilities. It's so engaging that I'm always amazed when the hour is over. The groundwork has now been laid for Kalinda's exit, either violently or voluntarily. Remember the warning she got from the former investigator about getting out while she can? Alternatively, she may dance on the knife-edge, finesse the situation, and carry on as before. Probably the latter because her loss would be huge to the show. She seems to love danger and the power that secrets give her, but how tightly wound can one person get befor
Well like most of you I was surprised to see noting that was even remotly conected to the last weeks episode.
I can also only suspect everything will come crashing down at once, ift you view the whole season as one story arch this is not so sudden, there where always small pointers.
I am also one of those W/A fans, cause it simply fits, I know there are several people who don#t think so but believe me you are minorety even when you are sometimes louder and I mean it in a very loving way. I see how you try to defend an idea and your morality!
I love Diane, I was not sure about her in the beginning, but she is simply great!
Also I am maybe one of the few people to love see Canning back, I love that sneaky Charaker and the way MJF plays him, thumbs up. It seems to buy Alicia out was also always a bit of a bigger plan.
Love to see more or Kalinda, like her as well..so even when I was a bit dissapointed from last nights episode I think it (and hope) it is just a build up and fro
The Kalinda/FBI Agent storyline gives me the impression that it's been brewing for a while now, and even though Kalinda thought she could put an end to it by confronting Lana in the cafeteria, it is more serious than she had anticipated. The FBI obviously wants Lamond Bishop very badly, and they could care less if they have to get to him through Kalinda. Let's face it, Kalinda is shady. It's one of the best parts about her character. So it makes sense that she got in some trouble along the way. I hope Jill Flint continues to guest star. I think she's great, and she has great chemistry with Archie Panjabi.
I was bored to tears. This was the episode to make us excited for the season finale?! Cary is a little snake and Kalinda's story is just the same as the previous seasons.
.. a sheepish 'confession' (perhaps too strong a word but I'll let it stand) from this viewer: I'd like Alicia and Will to find a way back to one another- personally- as a couple.
other than that, I'm entertained, sometimes quite engaged/intrigued, with the writers' storylines.
after 3 seasons, I find myself -unexpectedly- with a favorite: Diane.. I mean, Christine Baranski. a sheer delight. I'm going to seek out her other roles/movies for rental.
one of my favorite moments in the series was the faultless, short opening- the museum pick up scene- Boccherini playing merrily in the not-so-back-ground.
thanks for the few hours of fun!
.. to actors and writers and crew, alike--
Love the Kalinda story line, the small amount of screen time she's been given has kept me watching. Agree that it does however seem rushed, only suggestion would be that they bring her to the front and centre of the show throughout the season rather than push it all into the last few episodes. Archie Panjabi has done such a great job bringing the character to life there really isn't a reason for them not to.
I wasn't a big fan of this week's episode and, certainly, it was a bit of a let-down as far as penultimate episodes go. After the build-up to the election story last week--a story which, mind you, I'm not that excited about--it felt like a disappointment to not see anything from that front. Are we going to have to wait until next season for all of that? And what happens now that Matthew Perry's pilot has been picked up? Did "Good Wife" producers learn nothing from putting all their eggs in the Kelli Giddish basket?
The case of the week wasn't that engaging, IMO. It all felt a bit rushed. The moralizing from the judge, who was either lying or incompetent, struck me as a bit hypocritical. Glad to see that the pipeline of talent from "The Wire" to "The Good Wife" continues, though.
And lastly...I love Kalinda...love, love, love. She's one of my favorite characters on television...but this just felt wrong. Is there actually some legitimate cause behind the FBI investigation of Kalind
All the actors on the series are superb. Couple of exceptions - Chris Noth's character has been temporarily sub-verted, same with Eli Gold. Loved the stuff thrown in with the old demented partner though. And they should really consider bringing David Paymer aboard the firm, possibly to replace Eli - if Paymer decides to forego continuing his judicial career. Kalinda Panjabi might be the most unexpected hot tamale on TV today - even Sofia Vergara could learn a lesson!
P.S. Someone get Callie Simko out of there!
I have to say that I would much rather prefer the season finale to center around Peter's race and his dealing with Mike. I'm tired of Louis Canning--"we're going to destroy you." Really?? As for Kalinda, I'm enjoying this twist in her IRS story because it has me engaged in her character; something that hasn't really occurred all season. I'm worried about her! Lamond Bishop was very creepy. And I'm glad to see that Agent Delaney wasn't doing all this just to get to Kalinda for turning her down. I am very curious to see where it goes. The writers better have something up their sleeves for the finale, though, because there are so many loose ends. I predict a very cruel and sudden cliffhanger.
I actually like the Kalinda story line, but she is my favorite so I might be biased. I think the story line was supposed to feel rushed in a way because Kalinda and Alicia viewed as a simpler case and it got serious really fast, which no one was expecting. I thought the scene with Lana in this last episode was incredible. While the "end of the season/Kalinda has hot scenes with women" view is valid, I thought that scene had quite a bit of character development. That was a side of Kalinda that we have never seen before. To me, it looked like all her walls were down. It was a softer Kalinda in a very intimate scene. It really showed the human side to Kalinda and that what she shows people versus what she really feels are two different things. Also, Archie Panjabi is an amazing actress. The emotions on her face and in her voice were heartbreaking. Though this season started out a little rocky, I can't wait to see what they do with Kalinda next.
I'm glad that Cary is back not just because, well, he deserved it and Matt Czuchry really needs more lines to prove he's able to act. I'm glad because it looks like that return could mean a lot of new and intersting dynamics at L&G. And I really think they need something NEW.
Honestly I'm not liking Kalinda so much that season...or maybe I would say that I'm not liking what they're writing for her. That season finale storyline seems just a carbon copy of season 2 finale with Kalinda having an hot scene with some random sexy girl and realizing she's not able to do the things she have always done (sleeping with married people and using sex to get what she wants). But it was too rushed and I don't care about hotness. I'm more interested in character's development and I didn't like what they did with Kalinda. I'm not looking forward that season finale so much. But I'm looking forward to season 4. I think that season was a transitional season. Not their best season if you ask me as fo
When this series first began, I thought Alicia was channeling Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Edwards, amongst others, who were/are political wives who have been wronged by their husbands but chose to stay and tough it out. Now Alicia's moral compass so ****ed up that I have no sympathy or empathy with her and unless something changes dramatically on this show, I will have to switch off, which is really unfortunate because I have always enjoys watching Julianna Marguiles, and have loved Josh Charles since Sports Night.
