"I can’t stress enough how strong a run The Good Wife has made in this fifth season, and I only pray that it keeps it up in 2014 (this is the last new episode that will air before January). I spent this whole review basically talking about one scene in an episode filled with them. Clarke Hayden’s halting, but successful first cross-examination was lovely to see. Peter’s run-in with Lemond Bishop at the Florrick/Agos holiday party was terrifically tense. I’d actually like to see more of Veronica and Diane fighting over holiday decorations. And I could write a whole essay on Eli’s spit take to close the episode, which basically justified any bad decision the show has made with that character over the years. Everyone who isn’t watching The Good Wife, it’s time to start watching The Good Wife. Trust me, not one of you will regret it."
Last week’s episode is the only weak one so far (and it wasn’t even too bad, really).
