The Good Wife- An Auspicious Season Opener ****
26 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent season opener.

Our Matt Czuchry, as Cary Agos, really seems to have matured over the summer. Still, he has that smiling sneer on his face. The guy is vicious and will do anything to undermine Alicia,especially so convenient now for him is that he works for her separated husband. He is cunning. How many people could state in court that Alicia's pursuit was to make sure that a new judge would have to be chosen on the day that Jewish judges wouldn't be in court due to the Rosh Hashanah observance?

Tonight's episode was timely and terrific. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict comes into view and both sides will stop at nothing to get their way. Eli Gold is asked to lead a Muslim drive against bigotry. Jewish leaders yell afoul as Gold himself is Jewish.

Plenty of tensions in Chicago when a Jewish student is murdered on a college campus and in a separate incident, 20 students fight and only 1 Arab student is arrested. Agos soon uses his skills to admit that the student was wrongly arrested, only to show that he was involved in the killing of the Jewish student-Simon Greenberg.

The ending will certainly not satisfy both groups but is quite interesting to say the least.

Something had better be done with Sunday Night football. It ran into the show and those who taped it, lost out. Thank goodness for hulu.com
