Critic Reviews for The Good Wife: Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

The Season 2 premier is so fully packed, in any case, that we hardly get much time to catch up with Kalinda (Archie Panjabi), one of the best parts of the show. Let's assume that situation will be remedied in weeks to come.

March 15, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Wife has an obsessive attention to detail; it's a hurricane of detail, in the visual touches, legal patter and the actors' unspoken flourishes.

August 30, 2013 | Rating: A+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

All in all, a great hour of grown-up TV, my top pick in a fairly competitive time slot.

March 15, 2017 | Full Review…

That greatness shows no signs of abating in the second-season premiere.

October 24, 2016 | Full Review…

I remain charmed by the performances, appreciative of its slick style and storytelling technique, and invested in the lives of these characters.

September 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The Good Wife is a show where there's always a ton happening at once, but in this case I think the busy quality works to the show's advantage.
