5.0 out of 5 stars The Best US Drama on TV !
I absolutely love this series. Superb writing for quite a large cast of major characters, fine acting & engrossing, clever storylines, topped off by an hypnotic performance by " The Good Wife " herself Julianna Margulies as lawyer & state attorney's wife Alicia Florrick, Though she is almost upstaged by the firm's mysterious but brilliant investigator Kalinda...

A fine show over 4 series with some notable highs and a few lows (some awful over acting at times). This series was let down by the obnoxious story line with Khalinda and her husband - just cringeworthy.
The personal story lines are never quite 100% right and stretch credulity in this show, though. Julianne Margulies isn't the sharpest actor and maybe her 'Producer'...

5.0 out of 5 stars A special one!, 11 Oct. 2013

This review is from: The Good Wife - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
One of those "American lawyer series"..but this is brilliant. I have reviewed the first three series and we have seen some of the fourth on tv. I tnink we will re-watch the lot and then this one. The characters, mostly flawed, avaricious, self-serving and as nasty as they get are excellent (as is the cast obviously) and the judges in the various courts are cameos of eccentric oddballs(a delight). Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Court, Political and Personal Drama, 3 July 2013
By 
This review is from: The Good Wife - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
(Review based on More 4 Broadcast)

Series 4 (22 40 minute episodes) follows in the footstep of the other 3 excellent series. High quality and stylish again but could may be do with a slight tweak to the formula. If you like court room drama, politics and the ups and downs of personal relationships this is a superb watch.

In these series we follow Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) working for a law firm and the real quality of the series is in the excellent individual legal case plus the characters that are a delight to follow. Okay perhaps there's too many cases with a twists to dig up but the cases are varied and the outcome not always predictable.

The cast are great with the usual excellent performance and characters from Marguelies, Cumming, Fox, Panjabi, Czuchry, Piel, Grenier are also joined this season by the excellent Lane and Warren amongst others.

Beside the cases another big part of the series is following Florricks husbands political aspirations, her on off relationship with him and Will a law firm partner, Sharma always has troubles, Cary is always up to something, and the firms always in some form of trouble. This later issue is were it felt a little weak and formulaic and not helped with the issue being brushed under carpet when the writers seemingly got bored with it too.

Anyway its another great series that build on what's gone before extremely well and is set up nicely for series 5 with at least 3 major story arcs to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars POWERFULLY ONWARDS AMIDST MUCH INTRIGUE, 19 April 2014

This review is from: The Good Wife - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
The law firm of Lockhard/Gardner is heavily in debt and may well go under. Trustee Clarke Hayden(Nathan Lane) moves in to enforce rigid economies - sixty million dollars to be raised in just a few months. Surely mission impossible. What hope now? Will there be a mass exodus? Where do Alicia's loyalties lie?

22 episodes, all skilfully crafted with several themes skilfully interwoven. Head of an excellent cast, Julianna Margulies continues to shine as she tries to juggle her commitments as lawyer, wife (her once errant husband now campaigning for Governor), and mother. (Teens Grace and Zach remain remarkably well adjusted in the circumstances - likeable too, unlike their ghastly grans.)

Guest stars enhance. Michael J. Fox is back, as devious Louis Canning. Also in no way to be trusted are characters played by Kyle MacLachlan and Matthew Perry. Hilariously returning is Maura Tierney as lawyer Elsbeth, on the surface scatty but capable of exocets that annihilate opposition. A surprise is Marc Warren as investigator Kalinda's husband Nick - he creepy and increasingly dangerous.

The court cases remain highlights, no holds barred when fighting controversial cases.

Bonuses include deleted scenes, features on directing, costuming and sex content (the show, not being on cable, limited on how far it can go).

As usual it uplifts to see so much that is so good, storylines ever stronger with no sign of flagging. Undercurrents abound as circumstances and loyalties change, there surely enough scope for many more seasons.

Salute a truly great series, well deserving the acclaim.

we are totally addicted to the good wife. we are currently watching season 5 on the TV, but I really recommend that you buy the dvd. firstly, then you can watch more than one episode at a time and get your fix, and secondly, the story line is broken up by those car adverts with the annoying music and the ballerina doing something unfeasibly stretchy with her leg.

Each season just gets better and better as does the wonderful Julianna Marguiles. Just wait for the season cliffhanger! I can't wait to buy season five already!
