Better than the Good Wife. What a delightful story that focuses on deep characterizations, especially, what we all go through to try and make a living and do our best, while helping others in the process. Without the campaign, which always dragged the Good Wife down, we're left with what made the show amazing--good law cases, good characters matching wits, amazing women and men working together to make the world a better place. Using real-world examples, which actually aren't needed, but typical of the series, we get to see that a hard day's work and sacrifice means something--even when we're knocked down. Three different stories, layered, with emotion, challenges, family, friendship, love--and more.
-Least favorite episode featured "Chumhum," simply because it ended off and seemed more focused on the real-world than the characters.
-Side-characters, like Marissa Gold, completely steal the show and are refreshing--real.
-Elsbeth Tascioni, from the Good Wife, is charming and unpredictable.
-Having a woman as beautiful as Diane leading is a promising start to a new future. Lucca and Maia are great leads too, each bringing intertwining qualities to the synergy of the show. The relationships that the three women share develop slowly, which is nice and not crippled with over-drama, as is often common.
--Having a lead who is also a lesbian (and normal--aka, just a lesbian without the labels) is refreshing; as is the diverse cast.
-Someone finally got the casting right, balancing multiracial characters, with so many amazing African American leads--aka, Good Wife's "Diana and Will," become the ever-engaging Adrian Boseman and Barbara Kolstad.
-- It's also suspenseful and just well-written! Impressive work... Looking forward to seeing what more they will do--praying it keeps going (AND WITHOUT A CAMPAIGN--please leave it in the GW.)
