Missed the first five seasons of The Good Wife, or just lost track of what’s going on? No problem! Get up to date with our handy primer. Contains some spoilers, obviously
The beauty of The Good Wife, the CBS political/legal drama which returns tonight for a sixth series, is that it follows a standalone template. While understanding the nuances of relationships and in-jokes enriches viewing, and some of the plotlines do play out over several instalments, it is possible to dip into an episode with little or no background of the previous one and still enjoy it. Useful because, well, there isn’t much time to play catchup. With that in mind, and to recap for devoted viewers, hereis What You Need to Know About the Good Wife.

Much-anticipated, Sky Atlantic's chilling drama kicks off tonight with a feature-length series premiere.
By the time those 110 minutes are up, you still won't quite know what Fortitude is all about. But two things are certain – it looks absolutely spectacular and the all-star cast (including Christopher Eccleston, Stanley Tucci and Sofie Grabol) are superb. »
In the original 2011 thriller, Cooper starred as Eddie Morra, a writer who with the help of the experimental drug Nzt is able to access 100 percent of his mind, and in turn rockets to success in the financial world.
The TV take, penned by Craig Sweeny (Elementary, The 4400) and counting Cooper among its executive producers, follows a man who uses his newfound Nzt-enhanced abilities to (of course) solve weekly cases for the FBI.
Supergirl‘s version of Jimmy is described as a smart, worldly photographer for CatCo, the media company where Kara — played by Glee‘s Melissa Benoist — works. He has recently been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret, and his salt-of-the-earth nature quickly piques Kara’s interest.

Family is like a loaded gun. Especially if you’re Richard Paxson (True Blood's Sam Trammell) and you left your rural Colorado family and its gun business 20 years ago and vowed never to go back.
After some unfortunate circumstances, the big city corporate exec is forced to return home to help save the family business. But older brother Grady Paxton (My Name is Earl’s Jason Lee), a playboy bachelor and gun aficionado, isn’t so happy to have him back. And his liberal wife and opinionated teenage kids are horrified by the world they have been thrown into. Hilarity, epic fights and emotional breakdowns ensue.
Created by Samuel Baum (Lie to Me) and Sam Shaw (Manhattan – TV series), Cocked is an hour-long dark comedy that also stars Tony award-winning Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman), Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad), and Dreama Walker (The Good Wife) — a stellar cast. »
Wet Hot American Summer just added a whole bunch of very impressive bunkmates.
Per our sister site Deadline, which first reported the news, Hamm will play a spy, Pine’s role simply will be “mysterious,” and Wiig will play a counselor at the prepster Camp Tigerclaw (Firewood’s rival). All of the roles are either guest star or recurring.

Cole last appeared on the acclaimed CBS drama in November 2013, shortly after his character, Kurt McVeigh, tied the knot with Christine Baranski’s Diane Lockhart.
How has that marriage withstood all the workplace drama Diane has weathered since? Find out when Cole puts in his first appearance in a March episode.
The Good Wife resumes Season 6 on Sunday, March 1.
Now that part two of the season is returning in March, networks are figuring out how to boost their ratings again. Thus shows like The Good Wife is bring back someone special for that. Thus it has been announced that Gary Cole will be returning for a story arc this year. He will be reprising his role of Kurt McVeigh, who we last saw become married back in the fall of 2013. Now we will be seeing him return and find out what he is has been up.
It will be fun to see how they written him back in. I wonder if we can expect to hear if his marriage ended? I do not see why they would bring him back without his wife, unless their marriage didn’t work. However, I suppose that is part of the fun to see what they come up with.
Are you happy that »

Even though news surfaced that the entire cast of Wet Hot American Summer was set to return for Netflix’s original TV series, it wasn’t officially confirmed by the streaming network until it released a 50-second teaser touting most of the original stars’ names.
The returning cast includes: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.
While the teaser didn’t offer much outside of the cast names and an official synopsis, which states it will take place on the first day of Camp Firewood’s most famous summer, it did remind us of the star-studded power that will soon be reuniting for eight episodes.

ABC shows (so far): 20/20, America's Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Black-ish, Castle, Cristela, Dancing with the Stars, Forever, Galavant, The Goldbergs, The Great Christmas Light Fight, Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Last Man Standing, Manhattan Love Story, Marvel's Agent Carter, Marvel's Agents of Shield, The Middle, Modern Family, Nashville, Once Upon a Time, Resurrection, Revenge, Scandal, Selfie, Shark Tank, and The Taste.
From its first season to its second, FX’s “The Americans” went from being a very good drama to one of the very best things on television, a show I ultimately ranked #2 overall for 2014. I’ve seen the first four episodes of the third season, which debuts tomorrow night at 10, and while there hasn’t been a comparable huge leap in quality, the show also hasn’t backslid at all. The start of the new season feels very much of a piece with season 2, pushing forward the storyline about Philip and Elizabeth being ordered by the Kgb to recruit their daughter Paige to be an asset, and finding creative new ways to portray the brutality of the spy trade in the early ‘80s. (There’s a scene early in next week’s second episode that you may need to “watch” from behind the couch.) On an unseasonably warm day early last month, »

Marvel’s Aka Jessica Jones, whose 13-episode run will at some point follow that of Marvel’s Daredevil (premiering April 10), stars Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23) as the titular detective, whose specialty involves people with extraordinary abilities.
Tennant’s previous TV credits include, of course, Doctor Who, as well as the »
To be frank, I actually didn't expect her to win in her category. I really didn't. Not because I don't think she's deserving (she's Viola Davis, and she's an Actor!), but I thought her category (Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series) was the toughest, with impressive competition, most of them previously nominated and/or won in this category in past years: Claire Danes ("Homeland"), Julianmna Margulies ("The Good Wife"), Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"), Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey"), and Robin Wright ("House of Cards"). So I wasn't expecting a first-timer in that category to actually win it. But she did! So »

Last night, the 2015 SAG Awards, which aired on both TBS and TNT, honored a lot of newer series. Shows like Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, and How to Get Away With Murder beat out longer-running series like Modern Family, Homeland, and Game of Thrones for many of the night’s top acting prizes, and somewhat shockingly, Matthew McConaughey, who many (including myself) had originally predicted would sweep any and all acting categories with his performance in HBO’s True Detective, came up empty again last night. Here’s the full list of winners (for both TV and film) from the 2015 SAG Awards (the winners’ names are bolded): Drama Ensemble Boardwalk Empire Downton Abbey Game of Thrones Homeland House of Cards Drama Actress Claire Danes, Homeland Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey Robin Wright, »

There’s no doubt in our minds — that was the best speech of the night!
The second-time winner took the stage in a gorgeous white gown, and spoke of how her 4-year-old daughter, Genesis, asks for bedtime stories – but that she always includes one special request: “Mommy, can you put me in the story?”
Davis said, “It starts from the top up,” and thanked Htgawm's executive producer Shonda Rhimes and creator Pete Nowalk. "Thank you… for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman, could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me."
With tears in her eyes, the star continued, "Thank you to all the people who love me, exactly how God made me."

It looks like Sofia Vergara might not like The Good Wife as much as the rest of us! The Modern Family actress was caught in the act giving a major eye roll, seemily at Julianna Margulies' expense. It all went down during the presentation of the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. As the audience was giving it up for Margulies and her nomination, Vergara, who was seated directly behindher, threw out what seemed like a whole lot of attitude. Check out the smoking gun below: Now, since Julianna is one of the most likeable celebs out there, there's probably a less-scandalous reason for said shade. Our theory? Perhaps Sofia's Modern Family costar Eric »
