Does anyone know if we will get the new series of the Good Wife in the UK?

It usually starts about this time of year but I have not seen any mention of it this year sad

I normally love TGW but I agree it's going in a strange direction at the moment.

I think the point of Kalinda going from being terrified of being found by husband to shagging him is to show her awareness that he would seem to be her blind spot - she previously had to get away from him because she knew they were destructive together but equally she knew that if he found her this would happen again. Whatever the rationale I don't like it, I want the old Kalinda back.

Please, please do not let Alicia get back with Peter. It makes no sense given the current storyline.

Of course she needs to get back with him, so she can be tempted by Will again....

What a weird episode!

Kalinda?? WTAF??!!

Alicia & Peter?? WTAF??!!

Mind you, I don´t know what she ever saw in Will tbh.

Kalinda - sex on legs - I would and I'm straight shock

HanneHolm Sun 10-Feb-13 14:42:52

oh kalinda YAWN THE FUCK OFF, she is so irrelevant and so dull.

HanneHolm Sun 10-Feb-13 14:44:58 ooh yes

Thank God for that! Thanks for the link. I am simply not interested in that part of the story.
I thought it was better than Ep2 and that Eli was great this week. Hope it picks up soon.

I'd just like to see Kalinda dressed not as some kind of mid-80s Joan Collins with less permed hair. It still wouldn't make her storyline more interesting, though.

vjg13 Sun 10-Feb-13 19:26:48

I think Kalinda will kill him off eventually, hopefully sooner now if the script writers know it isn't working well.

tribpot Sun 10-Feb-13 19:28:41

Yes, start of next episode wouldn't be too soon for me. Or even him just leaving and never being mentioned again. There's no 'story arc' that needs to be brought to conclusion - exit stage left pursued by a bear.

BookFairy Sun 10-Feb-13 20:21:13

Oh good I'm glad other people agree. I preferred Kalinda when she was more mysterious. I don't like her this season. Hoping the husband disappears soon!

Keeping my place, but nothing to add.

Italiangreyhound Thu 14-Feb-13 01:01:46

ddil Will is gorgeous!

I finally watched it through properly and not as bad as I thought at first, although it's the law I like and not all Kalinda's shananagins!

The music is good too.

Roll on a new story line romance, who will it be?? Diane??

northender Thu 14-Feb-13 10:04:39

I'm with you on Will Italian. I love the interaction between him and Diane.

Dozer Thu 14-Feb-13 22:03:37

Will is gorgeous! And clever.

And peter is a cheating, bullying, entitled scumbag.

Dozer Thu 14-Feb-13 22:04:09

Diane is fab.

I'm another one who's baffled by the change in Kalinda this season. Bring back the old Kalinda!

I love Diane - actually I love all the show's strong female characters.

Bue Fri 15-Feb-13 15:16:24

Well that was the best episode yet, primarily because Kalinda's bloomin' husband didn't make an appearance! He looks like someone who sells cheap horsemeat out of the back of a van. At any rate this was the first episode that DH hasn't wandered away to practise his golf swing. And he has always been glued to TGW in the past.

Think Diane is my favourite character on television. The Dr Abby Lockhart storyline is awkward and weird though.

northender Fri 15-Feb-13 17:58:28

Thought that was definitely the best ep so far. Peters mum is a great character and Eli's face at the end was priceless. Agree about the Abby Lockhart character though, why is she supporting Peter?

Italiangreyhound Fri 15-Feb-13 23:07:56

Ooo must remember to watch on catch up.

Italiangreyhound Sat 16-Feb-13 01:05:27

Good episode, good story, lots of clever lines and of course Diane working well. The judge was an odd ball! All adds to the fun

Bue Sat 16-Feb-13 19:02:37

I was very amused by the judge. I know a lot people don't like that every judge has a quirk, but I also think it's fun.

BookFairy Sat 16-Feb-13 23:03:22

Great episode! I agree that I'm not sure what the deal is with the Abby Lockheart character? Is she trying to get dirt on Alicia? Diane is fantastic smile

I agree with the majority vote about Kalinda and her strange husband. Hopefully there'll be no more mention of him!

tribpot Sun 17-Feb-13 07:17:12

Agreed - I watched it yesterday and didn't realise til this morning that there had been no stupid Kalinda's husband storyline in to spoil it. Woot!

No follow-up on Alicia having kissed Peter, I think i might pretend that never happened.

I loved Diane getting a fire in her belly from a trip to the 27th floor. 'We're going to rebuild our firm. Then we're going to take on Louis Canning. Then we're going to open an office in New York - and DC!' Yeah, bring it on!

northender Thu 21-Feb-13 22:14:22

I enjoyed it again tonight. Apart from Kalindas husband, the characters are great. Thought Eli was fab again tonight. Still slightly bemused by Maura Tierney.
Thought Cary and Will looked hot tonight grin grin
