Okay We Get It, The Producers Hate Trump LOWERED MY RATING
13 April 2017 | by lydiagaebe-169-197169See all my reviews

Updated Review and I lowered my rating to a FOUR.

In my review of the pretty good first season, I said that if the show stops the "we hate Trump" snarks and asides, I'd up my rating. Well, the show continued it's "we hate Trump" rants and even upped the flatfooted political bias.

The story lines are more convoluted than what we saw in the first season, and the political bias is flatfooted and annoying. The writing also seems weaker than the first season. In the original show "The Good Wife," the political bias was there but it was not as flatfooted and was artfully sneaked into the storylines.

Now we have a great cast of talented actors playing great characters stuck in bad political memes poorly disguised as a drama. Get back to good storytelling and leave the political snarks to Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow.

I'm not a Trump fan, but hey, enough is enough! Okay?

Okay, producers and writers if you're going to take digs at Donald Trump at least make the digs a bit more creative and less flatfooted and heavy handed. Your show is great and creative, but those "we hate Trump" asides are so totally out of place. It's almost like the scripts were written before Trump was elected, and after his election the scripts were hastily rewritten to reflect the surprise election of Trump. Rather like "insert snide remark here." I'm no Trump fan, but those childish snarks are so juvenile! Were it not for those badly executed obvious political asides I would have given this show a ten out of ten.

That being said....

I enjoyed "The Good Wife" and am thrilled to see Christine Baranski's "Diane Lockhart" and Sarah Steele's "Marissa Gold", and Carrie Preston's goofy "Elspeth" and the rotating guest cast playing quirky judges and other offbeat characters are back. Both "Good Wife" and "Good Fight" take advantage of the talents of so many fine New York based character actors. That's one of the reasons I've been watching both shows for all these years.

The "Good Fight" stories are as well written as the "Good Wife" stories. There is a underlying sense of humor in this drama series and I've appreciated that. Life is dramatic, but it can also have a lot of low key humor running through it. "Good Fight" recognizes that and uses humor very well.

If the show ceases the snarky anti Trump asides, I'll come back and change my rating to a ten.
