Fans of "The Good Wife" are exuberant that the series may be saved. Among other mistakes it had been too ensnared in points of law. Sure, that provides entertainment on pure courtroom programming like "Court TV." But when it comes to our primetime soaps we want to have human beings getting into pickles because of their shadow sides. Go light on legal stuff.
Now the plot line in "The Good Wife" has moved on from creating legal drama to zeroing in on an office coup, the motives behind it, and who feels what. Good girl Alicia and wet behind the ears Cary have grown up. They have betrayed the powers that be, including Will, to raid talent and clients. Will has Alicia escorted by security out of the building. Diane has bet her money on the wrong horse.
This is the kind of dirt which draws eyeballs. "The Good Wife" may have gotten itself a fifth season.
