the last 2 episodes had very poor picture quality.A soft focus in my opinion.All the past shows were sharp,clear, nice HD.

The latest episode I was very confused with at the beginning. I couldn't picture where I had seen the FBI agent before and when I did remember I thought the show was doing a cross over with White Collar, as Sharif Atkins also plays an FBI agent on that show.

Alas not, he's a different character on White Collar.

This show started out good and has been getting better and better. Loved last night's episode.

I'm sure if my wife has anything to say about it we'll also be watching it tonight
Actually I like it too, I just wish Julianna would smile more. I saw her on a talk show where she looked very nice, and I was pleasantly surprised to see her smiling

The only thing that threw me a little was the Will-Alicia kiss. She's been there for months, and now that her husband is home she gets tempted?

Besides that, this is a very good show.

Sounds like they had something going on when they were at law school a while back

Obviously the attraction has been there and I think based on the pressure at hand (via the husband and work) it just came out.

Definitely one of the best shows going, I've recorded every episode.
CBS has had the best prime time lineup since HD began, imo.

I agree and because of HD I started watching a lot of their shows way back when they started airing the shows in HD

Me too Great picture quality won't make watch a bad show, but it can tip the scales on a marginal show. I don't consider The good wife just marginal but like almost all CBS prime time programs it's HD is stellar.

For me this show continues to grow stronger. Last night's episode played nicely and I appreciate the approach they take. Often more is said with a glance than words. This approach works nicely based on the level the show plays on. It just might be my most looked forward to show at this point.

I agree that this is a very good show. I liked last night's episode because there wasn't too much about her husband, which, to me, drags the show down a bit.

I know what you are saying. Although in reality it had everything to do with him or yesterday would have been her last day at the law firm.

Yes, Gold brought business in, mentioned Alicia's name to Will and Diane, and now has leverage over Alicia since he saved her job. But the focus was on her trying to keep her job, as opposed to her husband trying to get back into politics, which to me is a little far-fetched.

However, I think it's too bad that Cary was canned as he seemed to be a young lawyer struggling with his conscience. He definitely had the office politics routine down.

I guess MIB made it off the island. He was in the preview for next week's show.

Never signs up for anything

Well, her character is probably embarrassed by her husband's very public infidelity and arrest. I like this show.

No discussion on this show? I'm still enjoying it quite a bit. Lou Dobbs' appearance last week was a little strange, though. He didn't add much to the story other than "look, it's Lou Dobbs!"

I'm still watching and think it is the best drama show on TV. Very interesting plots from week to week. I liked the Lou Dobbs appearance as it was a contrast of political views that will end up on the same side probably in a future episode.

Still viewing here. Nice to see it hasn't dropped in quality since the first season.

For all it's appearances as a typical CBS legal procedural there is a surprising amount of complexity to the relationships and political machinations that constantly run in the background.

Currently my favorite Drama. I enjoy the grey areas they explore. Far more entertaining than black & white.

It surprises me that there is so little discussion of this show, given its quality. If anything, it has gotten even better this year. I'm always surprised that an episode is ending as I become engrossed in the stories. That's one of the signs of a good show for me.

The word "cool" is not something I would normally use to describe this show but I thought sychronizing the car alarm with the music track was very slick. The rest of the show was a good demonstration of the great character dynamics at work. Consistently surprising and you can really feel the daggers when you have two sides of a conflict staring each other down. The facial nuances are just great.

Another strong episode and previews that promise even more next week. A really well written and acted show that manages to keep all of its story lines both interesting and well paced.

I subconciously noticed that, but didn't really think about it until you brought it up.
