Fans of sophisticated drama may feel there's a dearth of smart new shows on the broadcast networks but The Good Wife continues to be broadcast's best answer to the scripted dramas on cable.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Season 6 premiere is on par with the show's seminal Season 5 Episode 5 masterpiece in terms of pure, delectable tension, riveting performances and sharktooth-sharp writing and direction.

TV Line

One of The Good Wife's most fascinating characteristics is that in this era of closed-ended, neatly tied-off television dramas, it's choosing to cast itself in the older mold of open-ended network dramas.

AV Club

"The Line" feels a little like a reboot of where the show was headed at the end of last season, but the new direction is as compelling as anything the show has ever done and feels fresh and exciting.

The Good Wife is the best show on television. It always keeps you guessing: not with cheap stunts like in other shows, but by behavior so well mapped out that it feels inevitable even as it surprises you.

We, and the show, are just getting started, and if there's one thing The Good Wife does well, it's surprise us.

Despite the cartoonishly bad conditions behind bars, Cary's arrest made for a totally unexpected and exciting premiere for one of the best shows on TV.

The Good Wife, a delectable, invigorating series of unprecedented depth and cynicism, is the best drama on TV.

All the kudos to Matt Czuchry for this episode. He took good material and ran with it, leaving viewers feeling his terror, panic and pain at finding out just what it's like to be on the other side of the law.

To those who insist cable has an unfair advantage the CBS drama continues to provide evidence that quality isn't necessarily defined by blood, guts or exposed flesh. All it really takes is brains - and in this case, you don't even have to eat them.

Yes, the writing is good. The acting is excellent, as is production value.

The Good Wife, like a heavily scheduled professional, comes to each Sunday with a lot of tasks and toggles between briskly like calls on multiple lines. Yet it moves so balletically it never feels like it's simply knocking items off a checklist.

Cable - who needs it? The best show on TV is on broadcast, and it's back at last.

The world The Good Wife has created is so rich, vibrant and full of interesting characters that the premiere could go in an entirely different direction, and still be completely believable-which is exactly what happened.

The premiere is bracing and unexpected. Especially given how long this show has lasted, it's a credit to the imagination and energy of its married creators, Robert and Michelle King, that The Good Wife has remained so watchable.

The Good Wife regularly serves up twisted but cautionary tales about what can happen when a society puts its collective security above the rights of individuals.

The season's premiere episode delivers no answer to the question of Alicia's future in politics. It provides something better -- a ripping specimen of The Good Wife at its best.
