6x03- Well Castro goading about Will would definitely do it, like Eli said the other week, Alicia needs a nemesis. I do like Castro, he's such an incompetent sleaze.

Episode was good but loses points for no Robin. Would have lost more points for Grace but she wasn't awful today which was an achievement in itself.


-Alicia Florrick to see you Mr Gold.
-THANK YOU NORA! YOUR PRE-COGNITIVE POWERS AMAZE ME!

I loved it, really like that they just have so much going on. Though I suppose the main case was a bit weak but it kinda had to be with everything else going on

6x04-

That episode was perfection, I loved everything about it. Alicia learning about the Op research was one of my all time favourite Good Wife scenes.

Talk to mom about hitting children.
:lol:
Kudos to the show for inventing one of the most realistic hateful kid characters ever. Working in a department store I see his type all the time.
Lemond Bishop bankrolling Alicia's political run was a great payoff to a long-serving supporting character, nicely foreshadowed by Peter's JFK picture. Great reveal I didn't see coming and it means that Alicia is mired in corruption before she even gets elected. She can't announce that a drug dealer wants her to win but if she does win Bishop is going to hold that over her.

Cast change news alert



Kalinda will be leaving the show by the end of this season.


CBS' The Good Wife will say farewell to Archie Panjabi this season.

The Emmy-winning actress, whose contract expires at the end of season six, has signed a development/holding deal with 20th Century Fox Television, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. 20th's plan calls for the actress behind Kalinda Sharma to star in a drama pilot for the studio in the spring.

"Archie is an Emmy Award-winning dramatic actress, and rightly so. Her work on The Good Wife has been extraordinary, and the time has come for her to star in a project of her own,"20th exec vp casting Sharon Klein said. "We couldn't be happier that it will be with us."

Totally didn't mean to read that
I think it'll be good for her and the show, Kalinda's getting stagnant (does mean Carey gets strawberry floated over again though :lol: ), they must have been expecting someone to try and poach her for a while given Robin

Supposedly Julianna Marguilles and Archie Panjabi hate each other. I didn't even notice this but apparently they've not had a scene together since season 4. Is that true? :lol:

Struggling to recall but the scenes I do remember were shot with one of their faces in closeup then the other so they might have not been in the same room when it was filmed :lol:

That would also explain why Kalinda told Alicia about (Season 5 spoiler)



Will's death over the phone.

Catching up with episode 3 now "Welcome to binding Christian Arbitration"

It sure is a good wife episode :lol:

Alicia's absolute disgust throughout the scene is great :lol:

EDIT:

Alicia's weird blue lighting Gloria Steinem dreams :lol:

They got the real director of The Americans on the show just to do a Talking Dead parody :lol:

6x05- Elsbeth! :wub: I felt quite sorry for her when she kept getting distracted, it felt mean. Always nice to see Kyle McClachlan though.

Diane clicking on the most obvious virus ever. :lol:

Besides Kalinda and possibly Robin did anyone at Florick/Agos actually know Alicia was going to run for State's Attorney? :lol: Finding out via a press conference is somewhat of an insult.


Robinwatch- Three episodes in a row without a sighting. :(

I initially thought she was having a breakdown/on severe psychotropic drugs.

6x06-

Alicia's reaction when Elsbeth gave MaClachlan advice in court. :lol:
Bringing in Howard Lyman. :lol: Cary's going to go mental.
Lemmond Bishop :lol:
It's weird that no-one at the firm (except Robin before she disappeared) has talked to Alicia about her election.



Robinwatch-
No sign for four episodes in a row and Cary's bail person called Kalinda "The firm's private investigator". When Robin's not on-screen all the other characters should be asking "Where's Robin?". Blonde girl in the Harvard bar did look weirdly like her though.

6x07-
That interview. :dread:

I like David Hyde Pierce's character already, that little smirk at the end when he was trying to convince Alicia it was her fault that he's running was great.


Robinwatch- Five episodes in a row with no sighting.:(

6x09- Someone remembered Robin exists! No appearance though. :(

This season has easily been the best material Cary's ever gotten, it's great. Every one of his scenes is depressing with an aura of dread. I do like how Bishop is effectively becoming the show's big bad, his actor is really good.

6x10-

Cary's going to kill himself isn't he? Kalinda's either going to go into witness protection or be murdered by Bishop after she takes revenge somehow for Cary.

:(

Episode was bleak as hell and now there's no new eps until January.

Ok, so I've been ploughing through this show and it's easily one of the best things I've ever watched. Which for what is essentially a fairly standard courtroom drama is highly impressive.

Absolutely gutted that no-one else I know is watching it as I've just seen what's probably been the best run of episodes for it so far and I've got no-one to talk to about it :( .

Season 5 has been consistently fantastic tv and I've just watched episode 15.
I can't believe they killed off Will! I just wasn't expecting it at all and I was genuinely gutted at the end when Kalinda walks into his curtain area and just breaks down. :(


strawberry float I love this show. :wub: :wub:

When does season 6 start back as I'll probably be up to date with the show by next week?

Devlin. 8-) The next episode airs on January 4, 2015 in America. You'll be pleased to know that season 6 has been really good so far if depressing.
