Yes, I too am sick of the Kalinda storyline but I don't see how the show can get out of developing it; weren't the episodes we're seeing now filmed this summer? The show couldn't know everyone would hate it, I think that by the time the shows aired and this story got negative reviews half the season must have been shot and ready. Even if the writers re-worked things to go along with viewers' opinions we can't see this new direction until at least the second half of the season starting sometime in January when episodes shot more recently start to air.
It was an OK episode but frankly, if I never saw those kids again(Grace and Zack)it would improve the show a lot. They're not the greatest young actors I've seen by a long shot so they add nothing but they sure eat up limited airtime for interesting supporting actors like the one playing Carey.
isn't the character in last episode the woman that carey was dating, not
Will? the woman Will dated was in the Twiligh Series, unless they both were dating her.
Puhleeze, let's have the old Kalinda back! She needs to drop that guy like a hot potato before he does more than beat somebody up...for no reason I might add. So tired of him and though I'm happy to see Amanda Peet, I'm not so sure I want her to be able to get the best of Alicia...ever!Yeah sure, let the kids help their dad out-that's what they're supposed to do but let's get this campaign over and done with before it starts to feel like the long slog of our most recent presidential election! Hopefully the outcome will be just as good, and Peter will take office as he should. I also want to see more of the Peter/Alicia flirtation as it seems that Will is now a foregone conclusion. I know it's called "the good wife," but one would have to be a little naive to think that both kids are going to fall in line as well? More power to Grace and the good looking Connor, but really...what's up with the smoking? A big fat NO to that, period!
Anyone else want to see Geneva Pine developed more instead of bringing in yet another NEW lawyer. No wonder she didn't want the SA's office to hire another lawyer she knew she would get shoved aside. Peter just jumped at hiring this woman was it just please Alicia or is he interested in her? What happened to Mataan(not sure of the spelling) or the lawyer played by Nicole Beharie last year.
Sick of Kalinda, she is one of the top features of the show, but give Nick the boot. Folks, be patient, one show doesn't determine the entire year. Yes, I too am tired of Alicia telling Grace she's a good girl, when she really doesn't want to be (her hormones are kicking in (or maybe they have already kicked). All in all, let's just take one Sunday at a time, so far the writers are pretty on target and leaving one somewhat awed.
I am losing all respect for Kalinda. Please, please have her kick Nick out once and for all. And soon. Or TGW's viewer will finally say "enough" and leave the show.
And, no, Vee, most of us don't want Will and Alicia to reunite. Nor do I want to see Laura have an affair with Will. She has just gotten over a rape incident in the army; she doesn't need a slick guy like Will.
I was glad to see more attention on the courtroom in this latest episode. I'm tired of the firm's financial problems, although I do really like their "minder."
For weeks posters have been hoping for Will and Alicia to reconnect. I hope, from viewing this week's episode, that those who desire this have come to their senses and realize that all Will wants to do is (I'll say this politely) have a lady friend.
Pretty insulting again of the writers to think that Eli wouldn't notice Zach working as a volunteer; doesn't Alicia know what he is doing; and the story line with Grace is weak; pretty tired of Alicia telling Grace, she is a "good girl" and she loves her- think Alicia needs to tap into her attorney skills and pay attention to signals her daughter is giving her; Was Connor at their house? How could her daughter smell of smoke if it was late in the evening? Kalinda needs to prove that she can be loyal and honest to her friends and appreciate how valuable "friends" can be like Carry. Does Carry even know that Nick is her husband? Was Kalinda going to hit on the bartender in the scene with Will? Can we get on with developing her character and not just focusing on her sex life? This last episode was all over the board. Is it really true that legally someone who attends AA can be made to testify?
I again so agree with what the majority of people have written. Ok "Good Wife" writers, you will start losing viewers if you don't listen to us. Get over the Kalinda/Nick story line. If Kalinda doesn't take some responsibility to ending her relationship with Nick, especially after Carry gets beaten,which of course I knew would happen,she becomes more and more like Nick, evil and unethical, in total denial of the kind of person Nick is and the person she has become. Really, Diane & Will just ignore her not showing up at work or being available!! Working with teens in teen dating abuse, I can tell you that Jealousy is destructive, not loving and that a person who is always Jealous, just wants Power and Control, is manipulative and will never change, unless they want to and get help. Will's lack of understanding of Jealousy and Love, just emphasized his lack of depth. Perhaps Alicia brings out the positive in him, but he will never been faithful. Of course he will hook up with Amanda
I really like The Good Wife and used to like Kalinda but I am sick of the Kalinda/Nick storyline. I don't know why Lockhart/Gardner doesn't call her on her behavior. I don't want Kalinda getting involved with Carey, she is a user and will sleep with whomever she needs at the moment.
I don't like the kids in the episodes, Grace and Zach are both such whiny brats. The Grace storyline seemed very unnecessary. I want the focus on Alicia/Peter, Will and Diane, the campaign to some degree. I really like the trial episodes best, seeing the firm maneuvering and preparing for trial. This used to be where Kalinda shined but not now.
Very disappointed in last night's episode.
Gosh, I am becoming less and less enthralled with GW. They crossed their line and became like everyone else in the politics of personal destruction. Surprising. If I wanted to see gratuatous violence there are any number of shows I could tune in, but expect more from GW. This story line of Kalinda's is growing tedious.
I am starting to lose interest in the show on a number of levels- darn it! I'm tired of worrying about their business and the bankruptcy problems. I find the law cases, the way each character reacts to a case, the ethics involved far more interesting than their money problems at the firm. Enough of their business problems already! Kalinda has been a favorite character until this year! I have always enjoyed the way she does her job- smart, quick, intuitive, an amazing investigator who seems to find the truth and facts to support it. She's private, but loyal, and walks so close to the line she inevitably crosses it at times. She crosses that line only with a purpose and offers no apologies. Kalinda's character has been mysterious and elusive, revealed in bits and pieces, a deep character with many different facets. Suddenly she has become a flat character with the abusive husband- the predictably unpredictable, scary, husband- it's been done the same hundreds of times in thousands of
Here we go again; "wishing for Alicia and Will to reunite>" Can't you understand that will is a womanizer. One viewer wanted to know if Amanda Peet could be a love interest for will? Are you kidding? If she is female and in the area, look out! He has slept with his student, his married "friend," who is his subordinate and countless other females. Diane once asked him to keep his pants zipped. Alicia needs to be with her family and Grace really needs her now with this Conner character in the picture. Why not root for "TGW" instead of the bad one?
I sent too soon. I was trying to say that maybe GOOD WIFE is going to try to have an Angela/Jordan relationship with Grace/Conner. (a la My So Called Life._If you had better actors it might draw new interest in younger audience, However, I am sick of Kalinda and always mentally tune her out. Just a thought.
I have been watching reruns of wonderful MY SO CALLED LIFE.
Amanda Peet is a great addition, but I do have a feeling that she might end up getting involved with either Will or Peter, thus causing tension with Alicia. Nick needs to go away and bring back the old Kalinda. She's usually my favorite, but not this season. However, I'm not interested in a Carey/Kalinda pairing...I just don't see the chemistry.
The case of the week was sad, because it almost felt like they crossed the line in their efforts to substitute the judge. Furthermore, their actions have probably created a lot of ill-will with their firm and other judges in the future. I hope the case was worth it, but it doesn't seem so.
THe daughter's side story is just filled with the usual cliches. Not really interested yet, but maybe there will be an interesting twist.
Kalinda just needs to kick Nick out with her boots already. Every time he's on the screen I get nauseated before I leave the room for a snack break.
I'm still rooting for Alicia and Will to reunite again. I thought it gave the episodes more fire and interest for them together.
