    The winsome, witty season 7 premiere proved anew that that unlike Eli, it doesn’t resent the challenge of proving itself; it thrives on it. Yes, the show is repeating itself. Once again with an election. Once again with launching a new practice. Once again with the Alicia/Peter happy marriage fakery. Yet there’s meaning in those narratives and repeating those narratives.

    Now armed with cool intelligence, a weathered savvy, and the kind of controlled ruthlessness that the past six years have built in her, Alicia is an even more interesting underdog than before.

    The show tries to keep up with the goings-on at Lockhart/Agos, but these stories are awkwardly untethered from the main Alicia plot in the first two episodes of the new season.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The good wife comes back with a bang, after the somewhat mediocre 6th season. the good wife writers Robert and Michelle King rejuvenate the 7th season by bringing new cast members who breathe new life to the series. The Florrick presidential campaign also brings a challenge for Eli as he meets his equal in the form of Ruth Eastman, while Alicia tries to rebuild her life and career after a disgraceful and embarrassing states attorney race. The good wife is reinventing itself as Alicia is now playing by her rules, with no one to answer to. The good wife bring a beautiful combination of elegant,classy writing mixed with excellent main and guest starring actors, perfect direction, lighting, make-up, costume and etc. The Good Wife is the best drama of network television period and deserves an emmy.

This is a great show. Even with the different career changes Alicia Florak has made hasn’t lowered the quality of “The Good Wife”. Now that Alicia is her own boss gives the show’s writers even more material to use. Expand

There's no character development, the episodes are stuck on the same tired loop of ludicrous trying-to-be humorous cases. Alicia is stuck, the possibility of her joining forces with Canning was an interesting idea that disappeared, along with her sitting on that 5 men panel that had potential for dramatic conflict. What a lazy excuse for a show this has turned out. Julianna Margulies deserves better. Expand
