The Good Wife 3×19 –”Blue Ribbon Panel:” I liked this episode, if only for the fact that some of the slower moving storylines are finally going somewhere. The dumb house plotline seems to be resolved, and though I have to admit that I didn’t see Jackie swooping in to buy the place, it wasn’t as big of a “shocker” as the writers probably hoped. I mean, who cares? Alicia wasn’t going to be able to top the other high offer anyway, so it’s not like she can complain. And it looks like the office politics will cool down for a while now, thank goodness. talk about booorrrriiiing!
The blue ribbon panel was interesting. I liked that Alicia was right to ask her questions and try to get to the truth, yet I also appreciated that it came back to bite her in the ass at the end. Somehow, that felt like the perfect resolution to that situation. Oh, and it was nice to see Matthew Perry again, but did he have to be such a jerk? He and the judges clearly expected Alicia to just sit there twiddling her thumbs or twisting the mothers ring around her finger instead of actually participating in good faith. Ugh.
NCIS 9×19– “The Good Son”: I thought this was a pretty good episode. The case was a lot more interesting with Vance’s brother-in-law as the prime suspect, and I just loved that they made him guilty in the end. I had reservations about bringing yet another family member into the fold (the eps with Tony’s father weren’t that great), but this one worked out well. I’m surprised about that because Vance has never been one of my favorite characters, so I was actually expecting to be quite bored by this.
