Customer Review

on 9 August 2012
Notwithstanding the alluring picture on the cover of this new Season 3 box-set, which presumably hints at lead character Alicia Florrick's somewhat more raunchy early-season activity, The Good Wife's third series continued to deliver mainstream legal drama with a cutting edge, and no small slice of tongue-in-cheek irony thrown in for good measure. One might wonder, for example, just how many goofy, offbeat and thoroughly bizarre circuit judges Cook County could have; while Dylan Baker's charmingly psychotic Colin Sweeney, Lisa Edelstein's (fresh from a lengthy stint on House) sex-mad Celeste Serano, Anna Camp's sweet-as-pie Caitlin D'arcy, and Matthew Perry's brilliant against-type, hyper-ambitious Mike Kresteva, are all new or recurring characters thrown into the brilliantly concocted mix.

Sustaining comic touches in relatively serious drama series is never an easy trick to pull off season after season, and yet The Good Wife keeps us amused, fascinated and horrified week after entertaining week. How evil can Jackie Florrick get in her bid to see her son rise to the top of the political ladder and destroy Alicia in the process? Just how complicated is Kalinda's back-story not to mention her relationship with FBI officers? How many times can Michael J. Fox's sly Louis Canning be defeated in court; has Cary really come back to the bright side, and what exactly did go on at those basketball games with Will and half of Chicago's bench? And at the centre of all this, Juliana Margulies's Emmy in 2011 was rich reward for sustaining the emotional fulcrum of a series that continues to reach new heights for mainstream American TV shows. Thoroughly recommended.
