Tag: The Good Wife (1-10 of 69)
On Sunday, The Good Wife closes its fourth season with a finale that Josh Charles promises will set the show up nicely for the fall. “Things are gonna get very complicated, in a good way,” he says. We believe him: There’s that promo that shows Diane (Christine Baranski) busting Will (Charles) and Alicia (Julianna Margulies) in a liplock. We know Cary (Matt Czuchry) continues maneuvering to start his own firm. And Alicia, Will, and Diane face off against Patti Nyholm (Martha Plimpton), in front of Judge Abernathy (Denis O’Hare), in a series of emergency court proceedings after Zach believes he’s witnessed vote tampering on the night of Peter’s gubernatorial election.

I know what you’re thinking: This is totally understandable. Also: Why didn’t they make any specific suggestions?
If you’re reading this in China, no worries. Here is a list of three top choices to brush up on if you’re heading up against a foreign hero and/or into a Western courtroom. What else should make the cut?
You probably don’t remember, but New York was covered in snow the last time I put together the PopWatch Planner. (Sorry, y’all.) To the rest of the country: enjoy what I assume is wonderfully warm weather.
If you still need a little heat, just watch Jennifer Love Hewitt in the season premiere of The Client List. That, and other suggestions, after the jump.
Just because most people don’t do a Golden Globes pool doesn’t mean you can’t predict if Homeland will build on its Emmy domination. Let’s take the 11 TV categories to a vote. Remember, this is who you think will win, not necessarily who you want to win. READ FULL STORY »
