Lemond Bishop's case takes center stage with guest stars Wallace Shawn and Audra McDonald
By Breia Brissey at ew




After two episodes in a row of Carrie Preston goodness, I have to admit I was fully prepared to be underwhelmed by "Runnin' with the Devil." But of course I was wrong. Any time Lemond Bishop (Mike Colter) returns, we're usually in for a good show. Under normal circumstances, Lemond Bishop is someone I'd never root for in real life. He deservedly has a lot of bad things coming his way. But stick Lemond Bishop under the protection of Alicia & Co., and...

Alicia waives attorney/client privilege after her client is murdered; Peter punches Mike Kresteva
By Breia Brissey @ EW




Is it just me или does it feel like we've waiting forever for the Shamrock Dinner? For weeks I've been looking вперед to the fancy soiree -- complete with the promise of Peter putting Mike Kresteva in his rightful place, but еще on that later. But the party wasn't all about the swanky clothes and open bar, and leave it to Eli to point out the true goal of the dinner: getting on the good side of Cardinal James (John Cullum). If history was any...

Alicia takes on a case as a favor to her mother and Peter asks Alicia to renew their vows
By Breia Brissey @ EW



It seems like just yesterday we were eagerly awaiting the arrival of Kalinda's husband during the season 4 premiere of The Good Wife. That story line didn't really pan out, but still, I can't believe we've already reached the penultimate episode. Unfortunately, "A еще Perfect Union" was about as underwhelming as Mr. Kalinda Sharma. Things moved too slowly, and again, there was no Eli Gold! That said, I think the writers held back a little bit to lay...

By Breia Brissey @ EW




The end is nigh! There are only two еще new episodes left of season 4, so let's dive right in and talk about "Rape: A Modern Perspective." The case of the week featured a young woman, Rainey (Makenzie Leigh), who was suing her alleged rapist, Todd Bratcher, in civil court. Bratcher (Jason Hite) took a plea bargain during his criminal trial, and as such,...

Alicia and Will take on an inquest at the morgue, Cary's father returns, and Eli schemes against Jordan one last time
By Breia Brissey at ew



I kind of like it when the case of the week takes a turn for the weird, and this week was just that: Will and Alicia set up Магазин in a morgue instead of a traditional court room for an inquest into the death of Roger Ludwig, an Illinois Supreme Court Justice. We heard the car crash in the episode's opener, but didn't see how it all went down. Ludwig's insurance company, led by Wilk Hobson (Frederick Weller), was looking to pay...

Two defendants get accused of the same crime, Eli gets a visitor from the Justice Department, and Kalinda tells Nick he has to go
By Breia Brissey @ EW




Last week's episode of The Good Wife was easily my Избранное of the season. It was definitely a tough act to follow, but I think "Battle of the Proxies" did a pretty good job. And I can say that even though there was a Kalinda/Nick story line!

The case of the week was actually two cases: two men were facing charges for murdering the same woman. How is that possible? The victim, Brandy, had been attending an outdoor...

Thirteen-year-old middle schooler Shawna Redman of Safford, Arizona, was a pretty normal kid. She was great at volleyball, got straight A’s, and her biggest offense up to that point was being tardy a grand total of one time.

Who could’ve imagined that she was a drug dealer?

That day, the school’s vice-principal called Shawna into his office. Weird, that never happened to Shawna before. He had searched Shawna’s locker and now wanted her purse. Shawna wasn’t told what he was looking for and she was too scared to ask. After dumping her purse’s contents, rifling...

Цитаты from some of the episodes!



Episode 1: Pilot

Alicia: You're worried about my husband, Mr. Childs. You've obviously never made a woman angry.

Peter: When I get out, it will all go back to normal.
Alicia: Nothing will ever go back to normal.

Alicia: Funny или Die has a skit about you. It's cool, I guess.

Client: Does it ever get easier?
Alicia: No, but Ты do get better at it.

Alicia: You won't feel like it. But put on nice clothing. Force yourself to. Not for public. For you.

Diane: You have some very prominent baggage. But, hey, if [Hilary Clinton] can do it, so can you.

Elsbeth Tascioni represents Lockhart/Gardner in a sexual harassment suit, Diane and Kurt address some of the issues in their relationship, and Eli and Jackie lock horns
By Breia Brissey @ EW



The writers have been painstakingly laying the groundwork for the explosive response to Alicia leaving Lockhart/Gardner. Honestly, I was ready for it to all hit this Sunday. And was disappointed when last week's previews indicated that we'd have to wait two еще weeks for it to all come to a head. But it's like the Good Wife writers know exactly how to silence my complaints:...

Dear Amber,

I've been dating a married man for 3 years. We met at a friend's New Year's Eve party and it was Любовь at first sight. His wife wasn't there because she's agoraphobic and refuses to leave their house. She's been that way for a decade and makes everyone in her life miserable. My boyfriend isn't happy at home, but says that he doesn't want to do anything to hurt his wife because he feels sorry for her. He says that he loves me and is going to leave his wife...

By Breia Brissey @ ew



Are Ты kind of tired of hearing about Lockhart/Gardner's financial woes? Just like I grew weary of the Kalinda/Nick storyline, I'm now getting a little bored with the firm's constant debt struggle. But at least the writers shook things up a little bit by throwing Louis Canning into the mix. I Любовь to hate Michael J. Fox's character on The Good Wife. That said, I'd be a pretty happy camper if I didn't have to hear another word about the...

Ethos (Greek) = character; Mores (Latin) = customs

vs.

Moralitas = manner, character, proper behavior

Professor Gentsch wrote this on the board at the start of his "Ethics, Economics and Law" Seminar during 1L at Harvard Law. What do those terms mean?

Ethics vs. Morality

But aren't they synonymous? Interchangeable? Break down the roots of each word. "Character" is in both. "Customs" and "manner" have similar meanings. But "proper behavior" is where the two diverge. What constitutes "proper behavior?"

Consider these two scenarios:

Hooray! Now that we've reached the end of the NFL season and major award shows, it seems that The Good Wife will no longer suffer from network preemptions.

Was it really necessary to air an all-new episode of The Good Wife during a post-holiday weekend? I grumbled about this very fact as I spent five hours on a bus returning to NYC from my own Thanksgiving celebration. And so what did Robert and Michelle King do? They delivered one of the best episodes of the season just to shut me up. Ты win, The Good Wife. Staying up late to catch "A Defense of Marriage" was totally worth it.

Dear Amber,

I'm an 11 year-old girl. My Dad is a dentist and left my Mom a год назад for the receptionist at work. He now spends all his time with his girlfriend. I'm supposed to spend every weekend with them, but I feel guilty about my Mom because she's crying all of the time. What should I do?

Vegas. Drive-thru wedding chapel. 5 PM. Regular Friday night. Maggie and Wes get hitched.

2 AM Saturday morning, their car’s found abandoned in the desert; dead body in the trunk. Maggie & Wes are asleep in a hotel on the strip. They claim their car was stolen the Назад evening. But...

A hotel clerk сказал(-а) that Maggie checked into the hotel alone. A гараж video camera shows Wes driving their car out of the гараж at 9:30pm. Most telling, though, are hair and clothing fibers on the body that link back to Wes.

Two weeks later, murder charges are brought against Wes....

Dear Amber,

My boyfriend and I have a really great relationship. (We're both 24.) We talk about everything, have a lot of the same interests, and almost never fight. The only thing is that he's starting to want some stuff in the bedroom that doesn't feel normal. I went along with some things, like having sex in the back of the movie theater and him posting pictures of me on the internet. Now he wants to have his best friend watch us have sex, but I'm not sure I'm...

Dear Amber,

I'm a fifteen year-old boy who has never been kissed. Would it be wrong to pay someone to Kiss me? There's a girl in my class who says she'll Kiss me for $50. She'll even let me take pictures to Показать my friends. We haven’t discussed the details yet – open mouth или closed mouth, tongue или no tongue, etc. And money isn’t an issue; I receive a very generous allowance. It’s just that my mom told me that my first Kiss should be “special” and I usually...
