Josh Charles and Julianna Margulies
Can't they all just get along? Perish the thought.
Few spectacles are more exciting and satisfying than watching a great series reinvent itself with bold strokes and high drama. In its five seasons, CBS's The Good Wife has never played it safe in boardroom, courtroom or bedroom — but nothing could have prepared us for just how explosively entertaining the war within Lockhart/Gardner was going to be.
The Good Wife
Is Lockhart/Gardner big enough for two Carys?
They may share the same name, but there was no confusing Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) with Lockhart/Gardner fourth year Carey Zepps in the season premiere of The Good Wife. In his first appearance on the show, Carey-with-an-e not only gave Alicia (Julianna Margulies) a hard time about her history with Will, but also almost (accidentally) blew Florrick, Agos & Associates' cover with David Lee.
"Sometimes you got to start things with a bang," Ben Rappaport tells TVGuide.com. "If you're going to introduce someone new, you got...

Alicia's secret is (almost) out.
Following Sunday's Season 5 premiere of The Good Wife, CBS released a jaw-dropping new promo for the season teasing Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Cary's upcoming exit from Lockhart/Gardner to...

When The Good Wife first began, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) became a household name after being cheated on and publicly humiliated by her politician husband, Peter (Chris Noth).
Now in Season 5, Alicia will be the one betraying those closest to her. "It's going to be a completely different ball game," Margulies tells TVGuide.com. "There's going to be a lot of tension and a lot of friction and a lot of heartbreak. Diane and Will will end up feeling, when they find out, like she stabbed them in the back. And she...

How will The Good Wife's Alicia and Cary succeed as firm partners? Not so well, star Julianna Margulies says.
On the season finale of the CBS drama, Alicia (Margulies) made the bold — and risky — decision to leave Lockhart/Gardner to help launch a new firm with her colleague Cary (Matt Czuchry).
"I think the biggest thing [will be] watching [Alicia] realize that her and Cary are not Will (Josh Charles) and Diane (Christine Baranski)," Margulies tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "The uphill battle will constantly be, 'Did I make a mistake?'"
Anthony Weiner might be feeling a little hot under the collar after his most recent headline-making scandal, but The Good Wife writers are reveling in his latest misconduct. "I think we're the happiest people writing right now because we have so much to write about," co-creator and executive producer Robert King told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews on Monday. "It's the gift that keeps on giving," star Julianna Margulies added. "We're starting Season 5 and it feels brand-new....

Question: I just read that Mike Kelley, the creator of Revenge, is leaving the show after this season. I will admit that this season isn't as good as the first, but it's OK. There are reports that Mike Kelley wanted shorter seasons, like on cable, with 13 episodes instead of the regular 22 moving forward. Since that wasn't going to happen, he left. What do you think? Do you think the show would work better with a shorter episode order? Also, if Kelley knew the show wouldn't work with longer seasons, why didn't he speak up the first season? Do you think someone else stepping in will freshen the show a bit? I will admit the time I started to take a step back and realize the writers were going too far was when they revealed Victoria had yet another child. Really?! Did you think the writers went overboard with that storyline in particular too? I also don't agree with the assertion that Scandal has replaced Revenge.

Talk about a spoiler alert. Fans of The Good Wife were shocked when — moments after Alicia (Julianna Margulies) accepted Peter's (Chris Noth) proposal to renew their vows in Hawaii — the preview for Sunday's season finale (9/8c on CBS) showed Alicia and Will (Josh Charles) making out in a car like a couple of teenagers. And though that scene answers the question of whether Alicia would act on her lingering feelings, there are still plenty of story lines up in the air going into Season 4's final hour. We take a closer look at the biggest burning questions...
