This show is awful. The acting is awful and the scripts are awful. Every woman is so super botox-ed that they should call this show, "Frankenstien's Good Wife". The lawyers and judges all deliver lines like they are meat-heads. Every character is so unconvincing as a legal professional. I certainly don't know any lawyers or judges that behave or speak like the characters in the show (and I know many lawyers and judges). This is another example of a show that used the "fast-talking" style of dialogue to make it seem like the characters are smart when really they just come across as rambling idiots. Furthermore, the plot lines are so trite and predictable. Oh look, Encyclopedia Brown solves the case again. What a surprise! I am so bored of this show being on in my house. I am writing this as I sit next to wife and I wonder how anyone could possibly enjoy something so cookie-cutter as this. I have never been so angered by the blandness of something that it drove me to write a review online. Please make the pain stop. Do yourself a favour and watch something else.Also it Implying only Jews are circumcised. As our informant says, it's a gratuitous circumcision reference (and attack on intact men) shoehorned into the dialogue. It is mitigated by Veronica being presented as a crazy and unpleasant woman no one likes.

The good wife is a good legal drama the title did deceive me at first but when I watched it I realized it was a drama but a good drama with a decent sets, costumes, and characters acting and casting.

Decent acting and the stories are good, both the episodes and on-going ones. However, series suffers from being on Network TV. Happy endings are conveniently found in the last 10 minutes. OK if you have 45 minutes to kill, but not something to live your life around.

Very entertaining. It's well acted, well made, and kind of addictive.

Totally engrossing. Smart drama. I couldn't stop watching. I can't wait to see season 2.
