Audience Reviews for The Good Fight: Season 1

  • Aug 10, 2021
    Season 1: A bit faster, a bit darker, far more political than The GoodWife. Christine Baranski is fantastic. Rest of cast very good but Bernadette Peters is miscast I think. I'll watch the rest of the seasons, definitely.
  • Mar 14, 2021
    Fantastic tv show that depicts modern conflicts with no cringe.
  • May 01, 2020
    How is this show possible rated this high?
  • Apr 17, 2019
    Outside the Overton window
  • Mar 24, 2019
    Can't get past Rose Leslie and her insipid Maia character. The whole storyline involving her parents was dragged out too long..and her whiny voice just killed this show for me. Let me know when they kill off her character.
  • Dec 19, 2018
    It doesn't have that something special that the good wife had, that kept you on the edge of the seat. But it is fun and entertaining and as the good wife, it manages to play with current political developments in an interesting manner. Strong women in the lead is another plus for this show.
  • May 11, 2018
    Best thing on the tv at the moment
  • Mar 26, 2018
    GENIUS WRITING. GENIUS ACTING. GENIUS DIRECTING. EVEN BETTER THAN THE GOOD WIFE
  • Mar 04, 2018
    Anyone who has had run in with a lawyer knows that this show is b.s. with that being said, the plot is predictable, characters are strained and the situations are not beliveable. The Big bad mega TV gods have no concept of reality and try to shove this slop at you.
  • Nov 18, 2017
    excellent tv series i just wish the seasons were longer. Christine Baranski leads this series perfectly as Diane Lockhart with Cush Jumbo stepping up as sort of co-lead as Lucca Quinn. It is different enough to stand alone but also retaining some of the DNA from the original series to make this compelling to watch. Cannot wait for the new season. Excellent stuff
