I love the show because the writing and acting is good.
I dislike the scheduling in the fall with 60 mins going over.
Sometimes I skip it entirely and wait until spring to watch it in reruns so I do not get angry.

Last Sunday I only saw the first half and read a recap online.

Carey is dreamy -- whether he is in trouble or in charge. Either way.
And what the heck is going on with Finn?
Will Alicia become his boss?

I find Alicia wearing.

But I really enjoy Diane (Christine Baranski) and
Kalinda.

This last episode with Eli was hilarious too! The droll humor is what keeps me watching. But there are times I just turn it off. Having onDemand then allows me to return to it later.

I've always liked Chris Noth... And his performances on this show never disappoint.

I just started watching last season. Already I find it difficult to
get thru a whole hour. So I view it onDemand, and watch about 1/2 in the morning and the rest around 4pm. It flows better for me that way.

I am getting really fed up with TV in general. I find much of it now boring.

The pilot for the new show Scorpion however, managed to keep my attention all the way thru. I really liked it. (but on IMDB the message board there was devastatingly cruel about it). As far as action, and entertainment, I liked it. I also liked Longmire and Almost Human, but both of those were cancelled!

I just can't relate well to Alicia... I guess that is my problem.
But the writing and the other characters do make up for that at least for me. (I am getting tired of Mad Men too the same way).
One article I read said Longmire had higher ratings than MadMen, but A&E cancelled it anyway. I am rather boycotting A&E now.

Default Re Alicia

It is hard to "get" Alicia. (Hard to warm up to her).

The writers do not give us a reason to relate to her or to like her.
We watch the show to see how she handles the other lawyers and the chaos in her personal life.
The show seems more plot driven than character driven -- usually not my cup of tea.

And yet the show somehow works. Some weeks I watch the same episodes all the way through twice.
Diane and Kalinda are fabulous. I wish that those two had more screen time.

I like the show because the writing is very good -- dialogue, plotting, pacing, topics, . . . clothes !!!
The actors in the male parts are consistently good.
Overall, the show is worth watching when I can get the DVR and the CBS scheduling to cooperate.

Alan Cumming continues to be the best actor on the show.
Linda Lavin did a great job last week as well.
I always like Christ Noth -- maybe because we do not see him often.

Some weeks the plot on GW disappoints me --like a B/B- and I am discouraged enough to consider not watching it.

Then this week, the plot was back to an "A."
I think sometimes the "weak" episodes are setting us up for the strong episode that will come up the next week.

Very good last night.

We also watch reruns of Law and Order Criminal Intent with Chris Noth. After that show was done he started with The Good Wife when it originated - 2009 I believe.
