His scandal. Her story., Don't let the name fool you.


Alan Sepinwall
The mark of a great season finale is one that makes you look as fondly as possible on the season that just ended even as it's exciting you about what's coming next. "What's in the Box?" did both those things.

Terry Ramsey
Daily Telegraph (UK)
The Good Wife still seems like one of those slick, legal dramas that the US can pump out without breaking sweat, such as Boston Legal or Suits. There was a feeling last night that the show is now running on tracks.

Karl Quinn
The Age (Australia)
A slightly conflicted return but given the consistent form of the three seasons so far, well worth hanging in there.
