The Good Wife 3×15 –”Live From Damascus:” This was kind of a disappointing follow-up to the superb “Another Ham Sandwich.” I wasn’t interested in the case, there was too much Eli/Amy Sedaris, and the Will shit just won’t go away. I mean, COME ON! I don’t know the first thing about state bar associations and there disciplinary procedures, but would a six-month suspension really mean Will has to take his name off the firm’s door and stationery? That seems rather extreme, doesn’t it? After all, he’s still a partner even though he can’t practice — which is why he’s allowed to be in the offices when discussing issues related to running the business. I don’t get it.
Alicia will be handling Kalinda’s tax case? Well, that’s not quite the way I envisioned the two of them getting back together, but at this point I’ll take anything. I wonder what deep, dark secrets will be uncovered there? It’s something so twisted that a tax attorney can’t handle it. Hmm. I wonder if Will secured Kalinda’s approval before handing the case off to Alicia. Either way, I doubt there’s another associate at the firm that Kalinda would trust more, so it’s all the same in the end.
And I just read that Matthew Perry has been cast in a “recurring role” on the show! Whatever it is, I’m excited to see him! I love Chandler!
NCIS 9×16– “Psych Out”: I liked Jamie Lee Curtis’ first appearance at NCIS and her interaction with Tony, but then things kind of went downhill from there. The case didn’t make much sense to me, and the subplot about McGee’s pay was totally unnecessary. I could probably get on board with JLC having a recurring role and becoming Gibbs’ latest love interest because I do see some potential there. But this week’s effort just didn’t work out very well.
Cougar Town 3×02 — “A Mind with a Heart of Its Own”: I liked this one. The zip line was funny, and Laurie’s Co-Moh craze was awesome! She is quickly becoming my favorite character on the show. That might be why I still get really uncomfortable when Ellie puts her down so much. I get that being mean is Ellie’s thing, but man, she goes way too far sometimes. I know the two of them hashed it out once and Ellie really does like Laurie, etc. etc. But that’s gotta be the most dysfunctional relationship in a show full of them!
Criminal Minds 7×15 — “A Thin Line”: This episode was so boring that I pretty much stopped watching after the first 15 minutes and just played Scrabble on my iPad instead. Sure, the show was still on in the background and I would occasionally look up from my game to see what was happening, but I didn’t follow it closely enough to be able to tell you what happened. I think I’m done with Criminal Minds. I mean, honestly, I barely even try to watch these episodes anymore. I’m just going through the motions at this point and ought to quit wasting my time!
