I’m so mad at myself that I haven’t been as up to speed on The Good Wife as I would have liked. But Sunday’s have been brutal. I basically had a marathon this weekend and now I’m even more mad at myself. I know there are some people who aren’t happy with the story lines this season but I’m not one of them. Well, except for the Kalinda/Nick story line which has been horrible. But it appears the writers agree and Nick is now gone so I’m not going to crush them for one bad idea over 4 seasons!
This whole thing with Nick probably wouldn’t have been so bad if it hadn’t been for the build up. The last 3 seasons, we were led to believe that Kalinda was on the run from a really bad dude and that her life could be in jeopardy if he were to find her. Instead, we got a kinky, sex crazed, wacko, who did nothing but make me want to FF every scene he’s in. I mean really? This is the guy Kalinda was so afraid of? We all know how tough Kalinda is so I would think it would take a pretty significant person to make her squirm. But Nick was a joke. Hell, Scott Porter was more intimidating than Marc Warren was. And I know Kalinda has this whole sex appeal thing going on, but does everyone in contact with her need to be about sex? Because it’s hard for me to buy her being deathly afraid of this man is she’s constantly screwing him every chance she gets. But he’s gone…thank God. So the question remains, HOW is he gone. The ending was left very vague. And maybe if this were a more interesting storyline, we would care what happened to Nick. Since it wasn’t, I don’t…I just want him to stay gone.
I’m loving the addition of Amanda Peet this season. She doing a fantastic job and I hope they keep her on moving forward. And seeing Chris Bulter made me realize how much I miss seeing Matan Brody. He was such a good character and then he just vanished. Big mistake. Bring back Matan!!! But Peet has been solid and I’m liking the chemistry she is developing with Will. I hope that starts to go somewhere because I really like them together.
By the way, Jackie and condoms…one word…ew.
And I know this happened in A Defense of Marriage but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the last scene in the bathroom between Peter and Alicia. Holler!!!!!!! You all know I want those two back together. They are amazing. I think the key to remember in all of this is that Peter and Alicia NEVER stopped loving each other or being attracted to one another. They may have had their issues with their spouses choices (rightfully so) but they never fell out of love. Which is why they will always find their way back to each other. And Stockard Channing, I love you woman but STAY OUT OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP!!! Don’t you be telling Peter to back off. You back off!
So what do we think is going on with Eli and this investigation? Is this a Maddie Hayes creation? And what a crappy position to be put in…assist us in nailing your current candidate or we’ll nail another candidate who just so happens to be your ex-wife. Low blow man. Those justice agents go right for the gonads don’t they? Luckily he has Diane on his side to assist him and I’m sure they will both find a way to get Eli out of this.
And for the love of all that’s holy and good, can we PLEASE give Cary Agos a storyline. We wasted half the season on this stupid Nick guy, now it’s time for Cary to shine. Please? Pretty please? I’m begging the writing staff…do something for my guy!
How are you all liking this season? And are you as happy as the rest of the world seems to be that Nick is gone? Let me know!
