The Good Wife left me wanting more, and to my surprise they delivered. After 10 superb episodes I keep wanting more from them, they took the best from The Good Wife and made The Good Fight with a lot more at stake and keeping you at the edge of your seat. A familiar feel but a more exhilarating pace, one that The Good Wife did not have which makes it different and honestly keeps you hooked. I loved The Good Wife and they ended it on a high note in my opinion, with this they deliver a new story with more punch. The introduction of the new characters with multiple story lines just keeps you wanting more. This must not be missed - The Good Fight - stop reading a go watch it, can't wait for Season 2!

This show has gone so far left that there isn't anything left to do beside I guess ending it at this point. Sometimes I think watching this show is like watching CNN. I think what Hollywood keeps getting confused is that they think we care about their political views. We do not. We just want you to do your job and that is producing something entertaining so that when we watch it we can escape our reality rather than indulging into more of it. If I wish to catch the latest news I can just tune in to a news channels.

If this is anything like The Good Wife then we are in for a hell of a series, can't wait!

Was sort of looking forward to Season3, but it is now so political that it's mostly unwatchable. I don't care for either political party. But this show is so far left now it's like looking at the daily news/nightly talk shows headlines. This is not entertainment. It's a propaganda show.

Since the initial episodes, this series became highly favoured TV for me and I have now placed it in my top 40 list. THE GOOD FIGHT began by co-opting the creme du la creme talent of THE GOOD WIFE: Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, and then added another talented Brit, Rose Leslie, to the core cast. With great writing and the first season casting of some tried and true talent: Paul Guilfoyle and Bernadette Peters, it was off to a great start. Although I thought THE GOOD WIFE faded away and needed to end, this series was a Phoenix rising from the ashes. I initially gave it an 8 (superb) out of 10, expecting it to rise. The second season was 9s (superb) all the way, so, now, at the end of season 2, I'm giving the whole series a 10 (best television) rating out of 10 [Legal Drama] If you haven't seen any of it, I highly recommend this as one of your summer binges!

Fantastic!!!! The Good Wife was unmissable but I feel The Good Fight is better. It's not so focused on one person as The Good Wife was which makes it more interesting and diverse. It's well worth watching.

I never watched The Good Wife but these first two episodes have captured my interest. Can't wait to enjoy this show.

I was a big fan of _The Good Wife_ and I loved the first two seasons of _The Good Fight_, but holy hell did it go to shit in the third season. Let me preface by saying I'm a progressive and a staunch feminist. That being said, I still found season 3 unbearable. It's pandering, plain and simple: while _The Good Wife_ regularly plundered the headlines and wore its politics on its sleeve, it still tried to tell a compelling story and presented its ideas in a nuanced manner. The character of Kurt, for instance, was created specifically to represent a more conservative point of view and present a foil for Diane's progressive views. In so doing, it gave us fantastic character drama. Well, all that is gone in season 3. Now we get [spoiler]flashes of Eric and Don Junior as Diane throws axes to relieve her utter hatred of the Trump Administration. We get Diane arguing with a Trump-shaped bruise on her husband's shoulder, lamenting "Where did the men go wrong."[/spoiler] We get Schoolhouse Rock-like interjections featuring shitty music that wink so hard at the audience that the writers must have sprained their eyelids writing them. Again, my problem isn't with the show's political views. It's with the inane manner in which they've abandoned all objectivity and nuance to give us a bizarre, one-sided revenge fantasy where Diane rages on and on about Trump's existence. It's entertainment for the liberal echo chamber, not a clever discourse on modern politics. And meanwhile, the characters have devolved into caricatures. If you liked how _The Good Wife_ featured quasi-realistic courtroom drama, tough luck, the courtroom action no longer makes any damn sense. And so I'm out. Although the first two seasons made it feel like _The Good Wife_ could go on forever, I guess this is the moment I have to say goodbye. You folks had a good run, but somewhere along the way you bought your own cleverness and forgot to tell a gripping drama.

Stop watching because of hatred towards President Trump. The writers need to grow up. Hilary LOST!!!

The character Maia seems to be surprised (even hearing her own name) all the time on the verge of crying all the time the first few episodes, it's so annoying. And she such a naive character like she was born yesterday. Is it like this the whole series ? The clichés are ridiculous, the characters not believable like they're from a comic.
