THE GOOD WIFE | 1×01-1×03

In Uncategorized on October 12, 2009 at 2:24 pm

I was almost guaranteed to love this show on its casting alone (Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles, Matt Czuchry…plus bloaty old Chris Noth and an increasingly leatherfaced Christine Baranski).

The legal drama is paint-by-numbers enough that I’m starting to wonder if I should take the bar (or the TV lawyer equivalent). But I feel there’s something more to this. We’re still fumbling through a Matlock-y phase, but chalk that up to the show still finding its way. Despite its timely premise, the gender attitudes tend toward dated, and either they’re still building the titular arc or they picked the wrong title for this show. Nonetheless, I’m as ready to commit to the season as CBS is.
