Cush Jumbo has a wish. A simple wish, really. The Good Fight star wants to find out more about her character's family and whether or not Lucca Quinn is, well, gross.

The premiere episode of CBS’ “The Good Fight” brought in 7.2 million viewers on an otherwise sleepy Sunday night for the broadcast networks in primetime.
“Good Fight,” a spinoff of the 2009-2016 CBS drama “The Good Wife,” is the first original series to land on the CBS All Access Svod platform. The first episode got a promotional send off on the mothership broadcast network as well, but the remaining nine episodes will only be available via CBS All Access, rolling out on a weekly basis.
“Good Fight” (7.2 million viewers, 0.7 rating in adults 18-49) bowed to rave reviews and a big media push around star Christine Baranski. CBS airing of the premiere in the 8 p.m. slot following “60 Minutes” serves as an extended marketing campaign to encourage fans to sign up for All Access.
“Good Fight” won its time period in total viewers, coming out of 10.3 million viewers for “60 Minutes.” Like its predecessor, “Good »

The Good Fight opened for business Sunday with a special preview airing on CBS.
The Good Wife spinoff, the first-ever original scripted series for CBS All Access, drew a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 — down five-tenths from the 1.2 rating drawn by The Good Wife's final season premiere and the series finale in May. That demo rating was also down from NCIS: La's most recent new episode in the same time slot (1.4 adults).
The series followed 60 Minutes (0.9 adults), which was down three-tenths.
However, what might be of more interest to CBS is the 7.2 »

Like a Las Vegas boxing match, CBS only had The Good Fight on for one night, but turns out The Good Wife spinoff doesn't quite pack much of a punch – at least among adults 18-49. Premiering at 8 Pm on Sunday with a special preview and starting with dismay at the inauguration of Donald Trump, the Christine Baranski-led legal drama snagged a soft 0.7/2 in the key demo. After last night, Tgf will now only be seen on CBS All Access – which showed the second episode on Sunday… »

Well, that was a delightful episode with a frustrating ending.
Luckily it more of the former than the latter.
The Good Wife was so great at introducing unique, reoccurring side characters. It's so fun to see them again.
I have been eagerly anticipating Marissa's return and I'm still holding out hope for an Eli Gold appearance.
Marissa is spunky, sarcastic and calls it like she sees it. She's an asset and luckily it doesn't take Diane too long to see that. In The Good Wife, the two of them didn't have much time together so it makes sense that Diane would be hesitant.
Here, Diane needs members for a class action lawsuit and Marissa takes it upon herself to find them.

It's finally here.
It finally happened.
On The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 1, Diane Lockhart, in a fabulous multi-colored dress that only she can pull off, dropped her first televised f-bomb.
To be fair, she had just found out she lost her entire life savings in a multi-billion dollar ponzi scheme and at the hands of close personal friends, no less, so it was justified. The subsequent ones felt pretty justified as well.
The f-bomb was far from where Diane started her journey, though.
When we first see her, she's positively glowing. She's so rich that she's buying a villa in Italy. She looks beautiful, can't stop smiling, and even has an understated gold band on her left ring finger suggesting she's still married to longtime love, Kurt McVeigh.
What could possibly go wrong?
In a word – everything.
Bad things happen to good people.

Court is back in session and honestly it couldn't be better. The Good Fight, the spinoff of The Good Wife you never knew you needed until you heard it was happening, brought Christine Baranski back as Diane Lockhart. She's dropping f-bombs and getting the spotlight she so sorely deserved after seven seasons as a supporting player to Julianna Margulies' Alicia Florrick.

Picking up a year after that infamous Good Wife series finale slap, The Good Fight centers on an enormous financial scam that has destroyed the reputation of budding lawyer Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie) while simultaneously wiping out the hard-earned savings of her mentor and godmother, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski). When the reputation-destroying scandal forces both Maia and Diane out of Lockhart and Lee, they join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.

The Good Fight was indeed good — but was it $5.99 good?
In the months leading up to The Good Wife spinoff, TVLine readers far and wide groused about having to pay CBS All Access’ monthly subscription rate for the privilege of watching the continuing adventures of Diane Lockhart & Co. But all the sound and fury signified nothing in my mind since the protests erupted before anyone had actually seen the offshoot.
