Did You Know?


The footage of the suicide was taken with a camera looking down at the victim from a higher level. However from other angles there is no structure seen over the bridge for that camera to be attached to. See more »

3.16 is **** All the Way
5 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Terrific episode highlighting office and government politics. Nice guest appearance by Democratic consultant Donna Brazile, who proves that she has a flare for acting in 2 scenes. Seems as though Peter Florrick wants to give the Keynote Address at the upcoming Democratic Convention this summer. His main thrust will include giving a person a second chance; he is certainly an expert in that area. Brazile hesitates because of his marriage situation. Having someone put in a good word for him will necessitate giving that person a political job and Peter is conflicted.

An interesting case in court where Alicia defends a film-maker being sued by the family of a girl they claim killed herself and he did nothing, except film the tragedy.

If that isn't enough, Will grapples with the 6 month suspension while his 2 overbearing sisters visit. Office politics consists of some heavies at the office trying to take Will's place.

The show is well-paced and a pleasure to watch.
