Archie Panjabi and Mark Warren
"You don't give James Bond a girlfriend." That's how The Good Wife co-creator and co-showrunner Robert King defines what went wrong with the introduction of fan favorite Kalinda's (Archie Panjabi) estranged husband, Nick (Marc Warren). The story line has left fans of the critically acclaimed drama surprisingly split after three seasons of following the seductive and mysterious private investigator's every move. "Some characters you actually don't want to see that much backstory. We're adjusting," he tells TVGuide.com. "No matter where we went, this was not a place where the audience wanted to go." But as King and his wife, co-creator and co-showrunner Michelle King, prepare to send Nick packing sooner than expected, The Good Wife (Sundays at 9/8c on CBS) will also welcome a formidable new political opponent to Peter (Chris Noth).

Like father, like son?
The Good Wife fans will find out next month when Cary's dad, Nestor Agos (Gossip Girl's John Shea), makes his first appearance, and...
The Good Wife's Kalinda Sharma has been called a lot of things: resourceful investigator, protective friend, seductive temptress. One thing she's she never been called? The good wife. Until now.
"The question that came up in my mind quite a bit, and also in the creators' minds is: Was she the good wife?" Archie Panjabi tells TVGuide.com. "She was married for a certain number of years, which we'll learn as the episodes progress. But what name did she change? Was she what we perceive to be the good wife? What happened to her in life? Nothing will be spelled out, but you definitely will get a bigger insight into her and her past."
John Shea, who plays Blair's dad on Gossip Girl, is taking on another paternal role this fall, when he'll appear on The Good Wife as Cary's (Matt Czuchry) father, TVLine reports.
Like father, like son?
The Good Wife's Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) may be the current state's attorney of Cook County (and possibly the future governor of Illinois), but back in the first season, he had his fair share of trouble with the law. Now, apparently, it's his son's turn!

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.

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...
