Alicia had a tough time in Season 2 with ex-husband Peter and ex-BFF Kalinda, her lust for Will, and of course still balancing kids and work, so it's great to see the new, hotter and, frankly, pissed-off Alicia enter the stage from the beginning of this season. This Alicia kicks a** in court and it's great to see how her character develops -it just goes to show how well cast Julianna Margulies is for this role!
Actually the whole cast is fab, but it takes a while for this season's cases, characters and brilliance (other than Alicia as mentioned before) to really take off - Badass Kalinda being a point in case. Her and Alicia's relationship could be used for building igloos as the season starts and her romantic relationships are as per usual complicated - although I could definitely see her with a certain FBI agent if she would just stop trying to get Kalinda into trouble for one moment, that is...
The usual interplay between Peter/Alicia, Alicia/Will, Alicia/Kalinda, Kalinda/Cary, Cary/Alicia, Cary/Will, Alicia/Michael J. Fox (sorry can't remember the character's name), Kalinda/Lana, Alicia/Diane etc. is top quality and a testament to the acting skills of everybody involved.
This season is a bit scattered at times and as I mentioned previously takes a while to get going, but it always provides entertainment and the show is still cool, sexy, and funny - and it comes with one of the best season finales I've seen - and one that will definitely keep me hooked for season 4!
I have watched this on TV, so this is a comment merely on the quality of the series - not the DVD contents.
