There are Emmy-bait performances at every level, from Margulies to Baranski, Panjabi and guest star Parrish.

There are no showy directorial flourishes; and yet the scene, with simple, workmanlike visuals, takes us inside Will's head as effectively as any dream sequence.

The Good Wife is sophisticated fun that lacks the ponderous pretentiousness that often makes other ''quality dramas'' feel like a chore.

Without revealing anything, I'll simply pause to admire The Good Wife's tireless and almost always flawless juggling act.

The show remains consistent, stylish and intelligent - qualities in short supply on television. With all it has going for it, The Good Wife is TV's most underrated drama.

This season's premiere, airing Sunday night, is a brisk, gleeful example of what The Good Wife does best.
