Question: Just when I thought The Good Wife couldn't top Season 5, Season 6 is off to a humdinger of a start! I certainly didn't see Cary's arrest coming, and I can't wait to find out what they have in store for us next. Matt Czuchry is terrific, and I'm thrilled he's getting this opportunity for a meaty storyline. As opposed to a show such as The Vampire Diaries, which tore through so much plot I stopped caring (no one stays dead, so where are the stakes?), The Good Wife earns its twists and turns, and only gets better with each game-changer. I've thoroughly enjoyed it from the get-go, but in the last year, it has vaulted to the top of my can't-miss shows. As we all know, many programs decline after the first few seasons and limp to the finish line. NCIS became a big hit a few years into its run, but I'm not sure it grew creatively. (That's not a slight — I don't watch it, so I genuinely don't know.) I can't think of another show that has risen to such glorious new artistic heights in Season 5 and onward the way The Good Wife has. Can you? — Keira

Weekend TV: Madam Secretary Joins The Good Wife

Madam Secretary

Many observers will try to compare Elizabeth McCord, the fictional Madam Secretary (of State) winningly played by Téa Leoni, to Hillary Clinton — given the high-profile government cabinet position, and the hair color, and a Benghazi-like crisis by the second episode. But the real comparison to be made is with the show's Sunday night companion piece on CBS: The Good Wife, and that's where this well-meaning and generally entertaining Madam comes up a bit short.

Good Wife Bosses Won't Keep Killing People, Tease Alicia's Big Decision in Season 6

Julianna Margulies

Fans of The Good Wife can officially breathe easy. Ever since the acclaimed CBS drama killed off its male lead, Will Gardner (Josh Charles), six months ago in a shocking twist absolutely no one saw coming, the show's loyal following — aka #TheGoodWifeSupportGroup — have had to sleep with one eye open, fearful that in this post-Will Gardner world, nothing and no one is safe.

Mega Buzz: A Once Couple, Sleepy Hollow's New Threat, and an SVU Romance

Jennifer Morrison, Tom Mison, Mariska Hargitay

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What will Emma and Hook's dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny's Diner. The bad news: "It's going to be tricky for the two of them," executive producer Adam Horowitz says. "Just because we saw their feelings reach a new level at the end of last season doesn't mean that that's the end of the story." And Emma may be the problem. "Emma is obviously a person who has a tough time trusting people and letting her guard down," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. "Sometimes you may feel something for somebody but your feelings hold you back."

What sort of monsters will Abbie and Ichabod face when Sleepy Hollow returns? — Andre

Red Band Society

Question: I'm a fan and read your column every week. I've watched the pilots for Forever and Red Band Society, and have added them to my list of shows I'll be watching. I hope they do well. I was wondering if you have seen them, and if so, what did you think? I found Red Band Society to be a feel-good show. I can't help but wonder, though, if it shouldn't be on a younger TV station like MTV, and the fact that it isn't makes me worry about its chances, as it is geared toward a younger audience. Forever is very Sherlock Holmes, which is right up my alley, and I love it whenever Ioan Gruffudd is on my TV screen. Do you think making the pilots available early hurts a TV show? What are your thoughts? - Carmelita
