Weak start to a new season
26 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Season 3 opener " A New Day"... an appropriate title. This is no longer "The Good Wife". I can't stress enough... there is way...to much so-called reality on TV as it is...can't we have a few "Good Guys" or in this case "A Good Wife" they too do really exist in this world. Also, remember the old adage...it's better to leave some things to the imagination. In this episode, the sex scene between Will and Alicia, was tooooooo much. It was so blatant, there was nothing to be left to our imagination. It was just plain tacky and offensive. This show was, when it began, a well written, well acted show, with good story lines. Did all the writers quit? It certainly appears so. For a season opener of an Emmy Award winning show, it was extremely weak in several areas. Aside from removing the obvious sexual tension from Will and Alicia, which was interesting, and then throwing their sexual escapades in our face, the Jewish-Muslim angle also fell short. Great build-up...big let-down. The Good wife has been my can't miss favorite since its inception, however, if this keeps up, I will find something better to watch on Sunday evenings.
