The firm takes on the automatic appeal of convicted murderer Clarence Wilcox who was convicted of killing a police officer during an armed robbery at a convenience store. Their argument is that a made-for-TV movie poisoned the jury pool but the appellate court denies them a re-trial. After meeting the man's wife, Alicia begins to wonder if they should launch an appeal based on the facts rather than technicalities. The woman claims her husband was with all of that evening but she wasn't put on the stand to testify because her previous record would have rendered the evidence less credible. As Alicia looks into the case, she discovers other anomalies, particularly as they relate to the police line-up and the eye witness who positively identified Wilcox as the culprit.

Episode 6: Good Wife, How About that? ***
5 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While watching this good episode, you begin to wonder why more wasn't done at the original trial. It certainly becomes evident that the accused was railroaded into a death penalty.

When the next round of Emmy nominations are announced, I hope that David Paymer will be considered for best supporting actor. He is just terrific as the sarcastic, caustic judge, who is very liberal but quite on the ball. He will give it to both the prosecution and defense if necessary. In this episode, he is right on the mark. At the end, he really lets loose on the prosecution as he has been forced to go against his original decision.

What was really going on between Angela's husband and that woman she works for?
