The Good Wife, Ep. 6.05: “Shiny Objects” cleverly rewards longtime viewers

20 October 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 5: “Shiny Objects”

Written by Keith Eisner

Directed by Frederick E. O. Toye

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS

One of the particular strengths of The Good Wife is its uncanny sense of series memory. With well over 100 episodes’ worth of long-standing character relationships, tertiary characters, and running gags to draw upon, it’s rare that a new episode comes down the pike that doesn’t reward long-time viewers, even if it’s just in a minute way. “Shiny Objects” is, on the surface, a prototypical latter-day Good Wife episode, in that it offers up a case of the week while keeping the season’s master plot humming along, but it also manages (for better and worse) to lean on several long-standing relationships and character beats to an unusual degree.

And you thought the clowns from American Horror Story: Freak Show were scary? How about the ones haunting the mind of The Good Wife‘s Elsbeth Tascioni?

Ok, maybe they’re not exactly haunting her, but some of ‘em are darn sure trying to stop her from coming up with a solid defense strategy for her corporate client in a gender discrimination lawsuit by a fired CEO.

“Shiny Objects,” as the hour is titled, pits Elsbeth and partner Rayna Hecht against Florrick-Agos’ Alicia and Dean — and provides an altogether less stressful and significantly more self-contained viewing experience than the quartet »

16 October 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

For Carrie Preston, slipping back into the eccentric role of Elsbeth Tasiconi on The Good Wife couldn't have come at a better time. The Emmy winner—she won in 2013 for playing the quirky lawyer on the hit CBS drama—had just lost her father when she returned to work on The Good Wife season six. "This time around, my father had just passed away, and so I went right into shooting fairly quickly after that. It was a little bit more of a challenge this time because I was still—I am still—in the grieving part, but it was a fun time," Preston told E! News about reprising the character. "It was a great escape too, to get inside this person who is so different than me and just enjoy having a »
