I love this show!! The best one on tv right now!

One of the best television shows on adult programming in a while, sad to see it go but it had run its course. I'm so glad it went the way it did, true to the story from beginning to end.

avatar

the series finale did not satisfy me at all .. :-/

avatar

Can't wait to see what happens to Cary Argos and Lamar Bishop.

Unfortunately, The Good Wife is not a well-known tv show. Julianna Margulies is amazing as the whole cast and its storyline is also a great part of one of the bests shows in tv by now. I love it.

Best show on adult programming just ended. Loved every moment of it, the characters, the story, the energy. Saddest thing, it will be truly missed.

avatar

This was a very good show. I envy those of you who haven't seen it all since I just saw the last episode and now it's over.

A great show, showing Juliana Margulies as a housewife to two kids, finding herself having to start providing for her family again when her husband goes to jail on corruption charges. We follow her through this transition and all that follows. It truly is a show that keeps me waiting for the next episode over and over again.

Perfect!

That was a fun ride. Good storytelling. Julianna Margulies was awesome.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
