The Good Fight Review: The Verdict on the Spinoff Is In (and It's... Good)

The Good Fight Review: The Verdict on the Spinoff Is In (and It's... Good)
In the opening scene of The Good Fight (premiering Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access), liberal warrior Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski, reprising her role from The Good Wife) is watching a playback of President Trump’s inauguration on TV, and the horror and disgust on her face is unmistakable. It’s a timely and darkly amusing sequence that also proves to be the premiere’s weakest.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series creators Robert and Michelle King acknowledged that the scene in question was a last-minute add. “Like most pollsters, we thought Hillary Clinton would win,

Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Sanctuary

  • TVfanatic
One thing that viewers can expect from any of the Dick Wolf franchises, is an episode or two dedicated to a ripped from the headlines case or current event. 

This go round, Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 12 was a nod at the Charleston shooting. 

What I appreciated the most, is that for once the case wasn't "on the nose." In fact, it was so subtle that it barely registered until the end of the episode. Nothing about the case had anything to do with the real life tragedy. 

The case was that of a female jogger being sexually assaulted and killed in a park. The two suspects were two young black boys wearing hoodies. You know, same old, same old. 

Aside from Tillman having a few physical similarities to Dylan Roof (redhead with a bowl-cut), his being unapologetic and not showing an ounce of remorse, a fire bomb ruining a church,

Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King will be taking full advantage of CBS All Access’ decidedly looser restrictions when spinoff series The Good Fight premieres in February. For starters, Christine Baranski‘s delightfully no-nonsense Diane will at long last be able to channel her inner George Carlin.

“Oh yeah, Diane is going to swear,” Robert King tells TVLine, exclusively. “There is nothing quite like hearing Christine Baranski swear.”

So many little details to cover, so let's get started!

Starz announced Hannah James and Tanya Reynolds will be playing the Dunsany sisters, Geneva and Isobel, on Outlander Season 3. James (right) will be Geneva, who is beautiful and headstrong, but also petulant, spoiled and demanding, while Reynolds (left) will be Isobel, described as warm, friendly, and inherently more likeable.

BrainDead Season 1 Episode 8 Review: The Path to War Part One: The Gathering Political Storm

Has Laurel finally realized the infected people she loves are more bug than people?

My dad is a bug.

Laurel Permalink: My dad is a bug. Added: August 14, 2016

That line just about says it all, doesn't it? Not only did Laurel discover on BrainDead Season 1 Episode 8 that her dad was previously diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but that he was "cured" by way of infection.

And this new daddy wasn't a nice guy. It's not surprising when the only thing the bugs could seem to agree upon was war. Finally, something both sides can come together to share.

Can I get an Eeeewwwww out of that one? Because we also learned how these bug people have "The Sex," and it's not pretty. It's not anything really.

Sorry. My phrasing sent me a little too far into the future. Let me get a little more out into the open first.

BrainDead Season 1 Review

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Multiple factors could impede your enjoyment of CBS’ new sci-fi/political drama BrainDead. While known to at least somewhat succeed at the latter genre, CBS has been lagging behind with the former. Because of this, to get the most out of BrainDead, you’ll have to be willing to welcome a network that doesn’t exactly have the best sci-fi track record. The show might be a D.C.-set poli-drama that makes ample use of all of the Trump v Clinton v Sanders soundbites that have dominated the media cycle of late, but it’s also got a weird streak and a demented sense of humor. Oh, and spontaneous combustion.

While trying to nail down the format for a few years, CBS has run into trouble gaining traction with fanbases that are amassing in droves to watch Preacher on AMC or even Bates Motel on A&E.

BrainDead Is Not The Good Wife With Alien Bugs

Let's get something straight: "From the creators of The Good Wife" does not mean BrainDead is The Good Wife 2.0. Actually, far from it. Robert and Michelle King's new science fiction-drama-thriller-comedy hybrid about alien bugs that eat the brains of people in Washington, DC (seriously), may feature some familiar Good Wife faces like Megan Hilty, Zach Grenier and Nikki M. James, and follow a female protagonist, but the similarities pretty much stop there. "I once had a car and it was in a car accident. I wanted to get a different car and I very deliberately went out and got the most different car I could get. This is not that," Michelle King told E! News when asked if it was a conscious choice to do...

Here’s something troubling about BrainDead, CBS’ new political dramedy from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King: After watching three hour-long episodes, I can honestly say I wouldn’t be upset in the slightest if any of the central characters fell victim to the alien bugs feasting on the brains of Washington, D.C., power players and turning ’em all into deeply uncompromising, rabidly partisan monsters.
