What we thought: This is yet another nearly flawless show that renders our ramblings unimportant. Seeing Kalinda kick that first guy's ass was pretty sweet. Seeing her fight her former husband just took it to a silly place. Obviously, that cop was a dick. We loved the Zach plot this week and that he was the one who got himself out of hot water, not his dad. We think he was totally impressed with his mom in court though. We loved Alicia's green jacket in the scene where Zach was arrested. We also love Zach's chicken cluck-sounding song and must have it. Alicia and Carey are even more fun as friends than Alicia and Kalinda. K Cheno is best in guest spots. She's perfect here. Alicia handled her well. We love how classy and smart Alicia is.
Nathan Lane is the trustee! Who doesn't love Nathan Lane? He's being a poop though. Is The Good Wife campaigning for Obama by having Grace put up a Hope poster in her room? We don't love when shows jump into politics like that. It's fun how crazy Eli gets over Peter's campaigns. How did they get in this horrible financial situation again? Maybe the trustee was right about the firm suffering under Diane's leadership. Does she not know how to handle money/hiring? Our perfect firm staff is in place. Don't ruin it, show. This premiere was quieter and more normal than most premieres, with little drama other than Kalinda's violent, sexy, and weird marriage. Still, it was good.
