Goodbye (for now) to The Good Wife

I finally got around to watching the season finale of "The Good Wife." Thank goodness for DVR's.  Between covering sporting events and late night studio time, most of my network tv watching (except for sports) is time shifted.  It is also so much easier to watch a show when you can zip through an hour drama in forty-five minutes.  Oh, and you advertisers take note; if I see a commercial that looks interesting, I will slow down the fast forward, and check it out.

For those of you old enough, you can appreciate the beauty of a DVR.  You can start at the beginning, middle or end of any show with a few clicks of a button.  Unlike a VCR, where you had to find the right videotape, rewind all the way back, and hope you didn't record over something that was partially watched by someone else.

While on the subject of VCR's, I remember my family's first one.  It was a Sony Betamax that cost about a thousand dollars, and had a wired remote control that only could stop, play, rewind, and fast forward.

Fast forward back to the present and Alecia Florrick....

That is one reason why I'll never understand women.

Her character dumps her husband, whose been doing everything short of being a saint, for sleeping (once) with someone who is now a co-worker, friend, and confidant.  Then, she goes out an has a torrid one-nighter with her boss, whom she's known since law school.

State's Attorney elect Peter Florrick even helped the law firm's case by secretly mailing them some crucial evidence, overlooked by the current prosecutor.

He may be getting a divorce, a la Arnold Schwarzengger.  Yet, there aren't even any more mistresses or children conceived out of wedlock.

Kelli Giddish as Sophia Russo

The best scene of course, was when Kalinda, the investigator, repaid a few favors to soon to be public defender Sophia Russo (Kelli Giddish) by sleeping with her.  Giddish certainly is a dish, and then Russo gets a call from her husband.  ("Oh, didn't I tell you I was married?")
Kind of reminds me of the song "All the Young Girls Love Alice" by Elton John.  "Come over and see me, come over and please me...wait 'til my husband's away."

I guess we'll have to wait until next season to see if there is any fallout from these events, and if it will hurt Peter shot at a gubernatorial run.
