Now this is "The Good Wife" I've come to know and love. The case of the week -- an abortion/surrogacy case -- and the bubbling drama at the firm combined to make an intriguing and thought-provoking hour of TV.
OK, "The Good Wife," you are great at a lot of things. Being topical is one of them. However, this NSA story ... not my favorite, especially when you have such a meaty story boiling with the Alicia/Cary exit just waiting to burst.
It's the beginning of the end of "The Good Wife" as we know it. Season 5 of "The Good Wife" kicked off right where Season 4 left off, with Alicia still at her front door, face-to-face with Cary discussing Agos/Florrick & Associates. Sorry, Florrick/Agos and Associates.
Susan Pourfar is used to playing out of the ordinary roles. She earned an array of awards for her portrayal of Sylvia in the Nina Raine comedy-drama play Tribes. You'll recognize her from her recurring role as Becky Flynn on ABC's hit series, Scandal.
