Art of War-4.6 ****
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This military episode was excellent due to the technicalities that were brought out and how Alicia worked within them, even in a losing cause.

That woman who plays the colonel is terrific. She reminds me of a tough New York City principal in the 1950s, when the schools there were just that- schools to educate and not put up with nonsense.

It's hard to believe what Peter Florrick's female donating person is now doing and what she has proposed to candidate Florrick. Lord only knows what she has up her sleeve.

Again, good seeing that Matt Czuchry had more dialog for the second straight week. He always has that grin and sneer on his face.

Florrick's mother seems to be handling her downward spiral into senility with grace. Interesting that the male companion seems to be working out. I hope no other nonsense results from a senile old lady with a Cuban born male nurse. He's not exactly Ricky Ricardo.
