The Good Wife- Taking Control season 2 premiere review

This is the first The Good Wife discussion featured on this blog, so we are going to give you a few of our general thoughts on the show.

-Although this is a very good show and it’s amazing for a procedural, we don’t think this show is as great as most critics say it is.

-But the show is classy, understated, engaging, and it has a great focus on character development. It blows the rest of the legal shows on TV right now away.

-We like Will, Carey, Alicia, and Eli Gold.

-Everyone else seems to like Kalinda, and she is alright. A cold, strong woman, who is also beautiful. Her sexuality is a bit of a question mark, so we think that people are lavishing her with love and praise in preparation for her inevitable coming out. Then they can say that they loved her all along.

-We don’t like Peter, Alicia’s husband. It’s hard for us to get behind someone who cheated and still says things like, “I love you.” We wish we could like him, because he has had some very sweet and funny moments with Alicia. In fact, he has been given much more “material” from the writers than Will’s character has, love story-wise. It is much more fun to have a love triangle where both of the guys are very dateable. We hope Peter does something big for Alicia to prove his love and appreciation for her is back. We need him to prove himself in some way. We aren’t crazy about Alicia’s children either. They seem pouty, meddling, and uninteresting, but they will be back to win us over this season.

-As for Will, we hope Alicia chooses him, but not yet. Actually, she's too good/gorgeous for both of them. Team Someone Else.

This season premiere had a decent court case to work with, and we love how Alicia stood up to the judge to protect her witness. We liked seeing the actor who played Friday Night Lights’ Jason Street out of a wheelchair and sparring with Kalinda. Will looks rat-like this season. Did he lose weight? We love the tricky Eli deleting Will’s love message to Alicia, prolonging their eventual hookup. This romance is more fun when it is forbidden, and the show is called The Good Wife, after all. Alicia has a new mentor in the law firm. This was a pretty good episode, but it dragged a little in the middle for us. We would give it a “C” if we were rating it against other Good Wife episodes, but we are rating against TV in general so….

Episode Grade- B-
