The firm defends a TV writer who released an episode of a TV show, even though the network postponed airing it several times, ultimately benching the writers episode. Elsbeth returns to help the firm...
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.
