The Thick of It
Timing is everything. Which may help explain why, after a nearly three-year delay, BBC America is finally importing the third season (from 2009) of the blistering political satire The Thick of It to its "Ministry of Laughs" weekend franchise (Saturday, midnight/11c) — on the heels of HBO's launch of Veep, which springs from the same demented imagination of dark farceur Armando Iannucci.
Thick set the tone of deeply cynical, bitterly vicious, and scaldingly profane high-office shenanigans that Veep is adapting with some success.
"Welcome back to the dark side."
With those celebratory words from his former rival, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), one chapter closed and another re-opened for Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) on The Good Wife. After spending two years working for the State's Attorney's Office, Cary was welcomed back to Lockhart & Gardner on Season 3's penultimate episode.

Cary may be returning to the same firm that once canned him, but he is no longer a naïve, shroom-taking lawyer fresh out of Harvard. "He has more confidence than...
Chris Noth, Julianna Margulies
The good wife is standing by her man once again.
Peter (Chris Noth) officially announced his run for governor of Illinois on Sunday's episode of The Good Wife, and he had a surprising weapon in his arsenal — Alicia (Julianna Margulies). The two have been estranged and keeping separate residences for the entire season, but when it mattered the most — at least politically — Alicia returned to his side. But...
Chris Noth and wife Tara Wilson
Meet Mrs. Big.
Former Sex and the City star Chris Noth, who currently appears on CBS' The Good Wife, has made an honest woman of the mother of his child.
Florrick for Governor? Oh, Alicia (Julianna Margulies). Something tells us you're really going to regret saying that.
In this new preview for The Good Wife's final three episodes, Alicia encourages Peter (Chris Noth) to run for governor. Little does the good wife know that a) Peter's new opposition is Mike Kresteva (Matthew Perry), the lawyer with whom Alicia butted heads in the blue ribbon panel, and b) Mike does not let go of grudges...
The Good Wife is going to battle in court, but this time, it's Will (Josh Charles) who will be on the stand and fighting for his innocence. On Sunday's episode, airing at 9/8c on CBS, Wendy Scott-Carr finally brings her accusations of judicial bribery against him to a grand jury. If he's indicted, Will could face up to seven years in the slammer so, suffice it to say, there's a lot on the line. TVGuide.com got an early look at the suspenseful hour — titled "Another Ham Sandwich" — and things are about to get "out of control." What role will Alicia (Julianna Margulies) play in the proceedings? Who's shacking up? Who's getting a smack down? Check out our seven teases:
Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles
There really is no better or more satisfying drama on Sunday nights than CBS' delicious The Good Wife — and yes, I'm counting cable (even pay) in that equation, at least for now, while we're in between seasons of such dynamic signature shows as Homeland, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, etc. (Although PBS' Downton Abbey comes close as the quintessential TV great escape.) This is especially true this Sunday, as Good Wife delivers a pivotal and sensationally entertaining episode (9/8c) firing on all burners. There's suspense, humor, memorable and electrifying showdowns between many of the major characters, pretty much everything you want from a show at the top of its game.

Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies
That sigh of relief coming from fans of The Good Wife Sunday was not over an Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Will (Josh Charles) reunion, nor even a possible rekindling of the passions between Alicia and Peter (Chris Noth). It was for the CBS legal drama's real fan-favorite duo, Alicia and Kalinda (Archie Panjabi), and what appeared to be the beginning of a reconciliation for the former best friends.
Alicia didn't exactly...
Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy waits 15 years for girl to separate from husband. And then girl breaks up with boy ... because she "can't." Yes, The Good Wife's Team Will fans had to close the door on "Willicia" almost as quickly as those elevator doors opened just a few months ago.
"We don't want this show to be in that Cheers mode of "when will they or won't they" kind of thing. As good as that is, we wanted to show the reality that Alicia has a lot of things pressing on her and a lot of guilt trips and emotions that factor into whether she carries on an affair," co-creator and executive producer Robert King tells TVGuide.com. "There was an emotional moment last year where Grace says, 'Mom, you need to protect us more.' That has been nagging at Alicia all this...
