Disappointing follow up to The Good Wife
- The Good Fight: Series 1 review by CR
We were so looking forward to this new series that followed on from The Good Wife, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The liberal use of the F word from episode one made it unacceptable for us to watch. Very disappointed. Would someone explain why expletives are considered compulsory in some series now please? The Mentalist series is great with very little to offend yet really great story line.
Binge watching. To me, this series is as compelling as The Good Wife. I like the court room scenes and the relationships in and out of work. I like that there are strong intelligent women characters with a good sense of humour and I like that this is a drama about blacks and whites. Lest I go through the series too quickly, I limit myself to 2 episodes a day. Looking forward to the next series. Well done.
