Did You Know?


The rent discussed is purportedly $60/square foot, which is in line with Chicago Loop market rates. A 20 percent discount for free legal work would only bring that down to $48/square foot, which if calculated against $22 million in revenue per year for two years requires a lease-able footprint of 3.6 million square feet to break even - a highly unrealistic footprint for a law firm.

Good Wife Season Finale: It Could Have Even Been Better ***1/2
29 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Zack witnesses voter tampering. Nice to see Estelle Parsons,Oscar winner in 1967 for "Bonnie and Clyde," in this episode. As a poll watcher, Parsons does a good job of hiding her worsening mental state. A wake up call for any Board of Elections hiring such people.

The irony here is that when the disputed votes favor Florrick, both sides in the controversy obviously take different approaches.

Nice to see that Gov.-elect Florrick's mother, Jackie, seems to be better, as she wants her young,dashing care-giver around.

From this show, Florrick has made it nicely. At the end of last season, he was elected Attorney General, and now he is governor.

Cary Agos is as sly as ever, and what's this as he comes to Alicia's door at the episode's end? We will have the summer to ponder this. Good luck.
