The Good Wife 3×20 –”Pants on Fire:” This was clearly a transitional episode, and though I understand the reason for having it here, that didn’t help me enjoy it. I thought this was rather boring overall, and didn’t have any truly gripping moments. I don’t really care about the constant Jackie/Alicia conflict. I mean, I think they occasionally have some funny moments when they’re trying to one-up each other, but otherwise I don’t see why Alicia lets that stuff consume so much of her time.
Although I personally don’t like the fact that Alicia is going to be at Peter’s side during his campaign, I think this move works within the context of the show. After all, it’s called The Good Wife, with the premise being a Clinton-like woman that sticks around despite numerous scandals. The show just wouldn’t be the same with Alicia completely divorced from Peter. In fact, a full divorce should only come (if at all) during the series finale.
NCIS 9×21– “Rekindled”: I liked this episode more for Tony’s backstory than for the actual case. I don’t care about that shady black ops group at all, so that part didn’t interest me in the least. But I liked learning that Tony saved a kid’s life while he was in college — an action that caused two people to become cops. That storyline played out well and allowed Tony to be serious and reflective instead of a goon for a change.
Cougar Town 3×08 — “Ways to be Wicked”: This episode was kind of “meh” for me. I liked that we saw where Ellie’s extreme meanness comes from, and I thought the bit with Laurie and her cakes was cute, but anything/everything involving Travis is just dumb. I don’t know if it’s the actor’s face or what, but I have never liked him and can’t bring myself to enjoy any of his storylines. Oh, well.
