The Good Wife 3×22 –”The Dream Team:” This finale was pretty disappointing, IMO. I am not really interested in Kalinda’s big, bad husband, and I’m getting tired of the firm always teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. That has been a running theme for three seasons now, and it’s just kind of annoying at this point. Can’t they find some other source of “conflict” for the firm? I did like Patty Nyholm teaming up with Canning, though. That provided some comic relief in an episode where not much actually seemed to happen.
Peter’s testimony at the deposition was pretty good, though I’m not sure why the fact that he and Alicia are separated would automatically erase suspicions about him trying to influence the judge. Couldn’t his alleged actions simply be construed as an attempt to win Alicia back?? I can understand the lawsuit coming to a grinding halt if Peter and Alicia were divorced. But just being separated doesn’t seem like a big enough bombshell. Guess it doesn’t matter in the end since it was all “misdirection” anyway.
NCIS 9×22– “Playing with Fire”: I dislike these multi-episode arcs because I think the writers don’t do them very well. I’m not invested in this storyline at all, so whenever the focus was on the saboteur, I was flipping through different apps on my phone. I didn’t pay attention to that stuff AT ALL. I only looked up when Ducky was talking about his will (strange, since the actor is slated to appear for two more seasons) and when Ziva was giving Tony a hard time about her stupid pilates weekend with her landlord (and, really, WTF was that all about???). Zzzzzz….when is the season over?!
Cougar Town 3×10 — “Southern Accents”: There weren’t really a lot of laughs for me in this one. I’m glad to see that Andy will be given something substantial to do (he really would make a good mayor!), and I like the fact that Grayson’s baby mama (I don’t know here name yet) will be around more frequently. The Cul-de-sac crew could certainly use some new blood! Plus, Travis had a good point about Jill’s mother basically being like a young, struggling Jules when she first became a mother. It’ll be interesting to see where this storyline goes.
Criminal Minds 7×21 — “Divining Rod”: I don’t think I understood this episode. Was the wife somehow implicated as being the one manipulating the shuttle driver into becoming obsessed with her? That didn’t make much sense at all, but that’s what I was led to believe based on the fact that the driver denied having any knowledge of the 1001 Nights quote — which was supposedly used in his fan letters to the original serial killer. But if it was the wife pulling the strings all along, why did she bother faking fan letters from the shuttle driver??? And how did she manage to get him to kill women as some sort of sick tribute to her husband?? It was just too confusing and weird….
