More Trump Bashing.
Verified purchase
I really thought this show was going to be great. Loved The Good Wife and thought this new show would just be a winning continuation. I was wrong.. The actors are great, especially Christine Barranski, but the absolute trashing of President Trump is way to repetitive. In the good wife you knew the Diane character was a democrat but was played low key as it should. This isn't a political show it's about lawyer's. People need to let this subject go, and learn to entertain us again. If I could submit my review w/o a star I sure would.

Message to CBS: put on Amazon and itunes in real time
Verified purchase
Excellent. I am a huge good wife fan and love the characters. And the addition of Delroy Lindo to this series, alongside Christine Baranski, is a stellar move. But, no matter how much I love a show and its cast, I will never sign up for CBS's service, even if just to binge-watch all 10 episodes during a free trial. I paid for each episode on Amazon, but would have preferred to do that in real time, not months later. Whomever is making decisions at CBS (to put this on CBS's app only) is clearly not an end-user. How about requiring your decisionmakers to be actual consumers of streaming television.

Too much TRUMP bashing. Big disappointment! No where near as good as The Good Wife. Not even close.
Verified purchase
One star should be ZERO stars. I was a HUGE fan of The Good Wife. The only consistent story this spinoff offers is one of President Trump hate. I bought the whole season, watched three episodes, but, have not and will not watch another episode. Hollywood should not mix their political agenda into a script. Not entertaining. Big mistake.

Better than the Good Wife
Verified purchase
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.)

Telling half the country to go .....
Verified purchase
totally enjoyed Good Wife.. That program tilted left politically but did not try to alienate half the country. This series just slaps conservative people in the face and says screw you. Do not need to pay to be abused.

Best drama on commercial TV.
Verified purchase
CBS dropped the ball when they put this on their streaming channel. Perhaps it was fear of Trumpistas? Whatever. The plots are timely; the acting is superb; the entire cast is wonderful; this series was/is the best drama on commercial TV. HBO/Showtime should pick it up for a wider audience than is available on its current modality.

Loved the extension of the good wife story line

Totally hooked! Loved the extension of the good wife story line, and the actors are awesome, as is the writing! You won't really get it unless you watched all the Good Wife seasons.

If you liked The Good Wife you'll enjoy this
Verified purchase
Has the same feel as The Good Wife, but that's because Diane carries the show. The actress that plays her goddaughter (the new young lawyer) has a weird facial twitch when she's doing a power/anger scene that drive me crazy. It's missing that Will/Alicia vibe.
