The Good Wife
I fear Matthew Perry appearing on this show. He's coming, you know. I cannot stand Matthew Perry. With two bad shows, he's exhausted all the good will I might have had for him for "Friends."
Will is not practicing law for six months, remember?
What's the name of that woman I hate? Christine Baranaki's the woman I hate, I should have asked about her character. It's Diane.
Okay, so Diane wants Will to keep coming into the office. He's a partner. He can come in and take care of business. He refuses the suggestion but Diane keeps pressuring and she's helped out (a) by Will's two sisters who breeze into town because he's 'lost' his job and (b) by the jockeying at the office for Will's position.
So Will's keeping his position.
Caitlin's basically an intern. She became a litigator this episode. Alicia needed a young blond to sway the judge. Caitlin did that.
I don't like Caitlin but I didn't understand all the looks Alicia was giving her or her problems with Diane over Caitlin.
I also didn't understand Will's sisters.
They are convinced he's involved with someone at work. Alicia's the one who keeps calling but they don't know that. They just know Will's happier when he's on the phone. But doesn't he like younger? And this case that's being worked on . . .
Here's the problem with the episode and I wouldn't ahve noted it were it not for the subplot.
When the sisters decide it's got to be someone younger than Peter and she has to be working on this case, the sisters do not search for the case on the computer and learn about Caitlin.
They should have.
Why didn't they?
And, more importantly, why was there no press at Alicia's trial?
She's defending a movie maker over the death of a woman he videotaped. Seems like that would attract the press and how about a fairly large number of spectators.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
