The Good Wife, Ep. 6.10: “The Trial” deftly blends levity and high-stakes twists

23 November 2014 9:54 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 10: “The Trial”

Written by Robert King and Michelle King

Directed by Frederick E. O. Toye

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et

Simon Howell: Of course this was going to happen. The Good Wife’s latest seasonal pivot point, in which a major character apparently heads to the slammer, happens to be surrounded with a whole lot of its most broadly silly material. “The Trial” is up to a lot of things – shifting perspectives, light social commentary, romantic workplace comedy, Law & Order episode – but for the most part it manages to hold together reasonably well as an episode. If nothing else, it makes clear that the Kings have no interest in signposting just where this season is meant to be heading, except that it will continue to be defined by Alicia’s campaign and her increasingly unreliable ethical compass. To ponder the episode’s developments and assess the season so far, »

The Good Wife First Look: Alicia and Peter, K-i-s-s-i-n-g?

30 October 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When last we saw The Good Wife‘s Alicia and Peter Florrick, they were engaged in a scathing, no-holds-barred argument in a service hallway of a Chicago hotel. (Ok, yes, the Illinois governor eventually caved in and showed up at his wife’s campaign kickoff for State’s Attorney, but it wasn’t exactly the Portrait of a Blissful Political Marriage.)

In the following first-look images from the show’s Nov. 16 episode (9/8c on CBS), however, temperatures look decidedly warmer — at least while the cameras are rolling, anyway. There’s laughter, a smooch and… a campaign manager (Steven Pasquale) to keep things running smoothly. »

Review: 'The Good Wife' - 'Oppo Research'

13 October 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of last night's "The Good Wife" coming up just as soon as we go without ordering or paying... For a while now, it's been a running gag that Alicia is obsessed with "Darkness at Noon," the Kings' thinly-disguised parody of "Low Winter Sun," and their comic argument that "The Good Wife" shouldn't be ignored because it isn't yet another cable anti-hero crime drama. I've tended to look at the gag as low-hanging fruit, because "Low Winter Sun" wasn't any good — of course "The Good Wife" is a much better, more ambitious and more complex show than that. "Oppo Research," though, extended the joke so far by letting a good chunk of the episode play out while a "Talking Dead"-style postgame show aired in the background, featuring a cameo from "The Americans" creator Joe Weisberg (whose show is a much better example of a cable anti-hero drama) and »

The Good Wife, Ep. 6.04: “Oppo Research” virtuosic but troubled

13 October 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 4: “Oppo Research”

Written by Robert King and Michelle King

Directed by Matt Shakman

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS

Why is Alicia Florrick running?

It’s a question that comes up throughout “Oppo Research” with good reason. Ever since Eli brought up the idea in the final moments of season five, The Good Wife has been loath to give Alicia one big, whopping, obvious motivation for once again rening her life apart in pursuit of another ambitious prize. Every time she answers the question – this week most pointedly by her new campaign manager, Johnny Elfman (Steven Pasquale, erstwhile star of Do No Harm) – her response is evasive, or negative, or completely nebulous. As promised last week, the Oppo Research phase turns out to be thoroughly unpleasant and invasive, and she’s even subject to a cheap DUI setup at the hands of Castro before episode’s end. »

The Good Wife Recap: Red, Red Wine... Stay Close to Me

12 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

To quote Keanu Reeves in The Matrix, “Whoa.”

Alicia wades into the forehead-deep mire of political opposition research on this week’s installment of The Good Wife, but instead of drowning in possible scandal — photos of herself and late lover Will at a hotel reception desk, son Zach’s girlfriend’s secret abortion, mother Veronica’s spanking of Damien from The Omen in full view of a department store surveillance camera (which, frankly, had to be worth a two-point bump, no?) — she strides over the surface with newfound fire and (thank goodness) her weary sense of humor in tact.

The Good Wife Retains David Krumholtz to Play Alicia's [Spoiler]

9 October 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Good Wife is recruiting a noted Numb3rs cruncher to (presumably) help Alicia win that coveted State’s Attorney post.

TVLine has learned exclusively that David Krumholtz is joining CBS’ marquee drama in the potentially recurring role of Josh, a top campaign specialist hired by Alicia’s manager, Jonathan (Steven Pasquale).

One part Hollywood and two parts political, Josh is known as a master of negative campaigning (a role first teased in this week’s Ask Ausiello). He also believes candidates should just shut up and do what the professionals say, so his interactions with Alicia should be hysterical.

David Hyde Pierce, best known for starring on Frasier, is joining the cast of the CBS legal drama The Good Wife.

David Hyde Pierce On 'The Good Wife'

Pierce's guest-starring role in The Good Wife’s sixth season will see him play a cable news legal commentator, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The highly-respected media man decides to run for elected office, motivated by the ongoing corruption and horrific murder rates in Chicago.

Pierce won four Emmy Awards playing Dr. Niles Cramer on Frasier, which starred Kelsey Grammar in the titular role. Since the show went off the air in 2004, Pierce voiced a Simpsons character and »

Parting ways is hard to do, but luckily for The Good Wife, killing off Will Gardner did not mean bidding adieu to his portrayer.

In the following exclusive clip from the CBS drama’s Season 5 DVD release (in stores Tuesday), co-creator Michelle King reveals that the actor —  who directed an episode of the show after his departure (and is set to helm another installment in Season 6) — will remain a part of their world.
