Review - The Good Wife Season 1 Episode 23 Running

Whereas the sci-fi shows, FlashForward and V, began the year as frontrunners, The Good Wife was well-received but covered far less. Now, at the end of the season, we've come full circle. No one, other than a few select sites, cares about FlashForward and V while The Good Wife gets as much or more coverage.

So too has Alicia. She began the season as the beleaguered "good wife," standing up on the podium, stone-faced as her husband admitted his wrongdoings. Now, she is back to support her husband's campaign and bold words, except she's more than just a "good wife."

She looks at Peter, clearly not happy, but before she moves, the show cuts to the credits. Drat!! I guess we'll have to wait until September to find out. Out of necessity and for practical reasons, I think she will choose Peter for the time being.

We got a taster this week, but next season will have more battles with Cary. The specter of Alicia's relationship or non-relationship with Will will continue to loom over everything regardless of who Alicia chooses. The possibilities are endless.

The case was, as usual, solid and I don't have much complaints about it other than the lesbo kiss we couldn't see. Since it was the season finale, many old characters were weaved into the case which was good for the dynamic. It was about a corrupt police taskforce, bringing in Kalinda's cop friend. In the end, there was no corruption other than from Arkin and his wife had gotten him killed. The resolution was muddled, so I'm not entirely sure how it went down.

I said this last week, but Jackie is horrid, absolutely horrid. There's no way to put it. She's an old lady and all but I want to smack her really bad, maybe more than I want to smack Giada.

Score: 9.2/10
