This has long been the one network show that we liked. But over the last two years it feels like they are throwing dozens of balls into the air in the hopes you won't notice that none of them land. In other words, they are diverting your eyes from the fact they ran out of ideas about the time they killed off Will.
So no story line ever gets real development. Does anyone even know why Alicia was running for governor or why she lost? Does anyone care which law firm she works for or why? Why her husband thought he could run for president with his baggae? What in the world Eli does with his days? Does the actor playing Jason get by on that smile in other parts. It's just not charming enough I'm afraid.
I know this is the last season for THE GOOD WIFE, but how much better these characters would have been served ending it two years ago. Before Alicia became a boring alcoholic. Using a whole season to show her grief seems excessive. And I am so tired of ditzy mothers and this show has two.
What other shows have gone off the tracks for you? What shows went on too long?
