The Good Wife returns with new episodes on Jan. 8 at 9/8c.

  • I thought they got over that Cary/Kalinda thing with him being a total dick to her and sending his creepy girlfriend to hit on her and bring their flirting back to bed. Girl, you are better than that. This show needs to back away from the romance and go back to what made it work in the first place. On the other hand, I am so freaking excited for Spartacus.

    • Agree about the Cary/Kalinda thing, but they need to properly makeout first :) then I can get over it, since Cary is now *officially* a POS.
      Also, whoa at Will getting slammed into a wall–need to know what’s going on there stat!

  • That girl who plays Kalinda is the sexiest woman on TV. Like, ever. Also, I love Cary/Kalinda.

  • The Fades is one of those shows that you expect to be awful, but is actually brilliant if you’re a fan of fantasy. Can’t recommend enough. Also Iain De Caestecker and Daniel Kaluuya are two young actors to watch out for. Both are super talented and will defo be winning awards in the next few years.

    • Kaluuya was so underused on Skins. I’m glad he’s better utilized on The Fades.

  • Cary and Kalinda are perfect for each other. Neither of them is a saint and both of them are charming.

  • Can someone post a link where we in Canada are not prohibited from seeing due to “our geographic location”.

  • I don’t see Will and Alicia. That would be a “good” bad!

  • I’m not surprised that Alicia told Will it was over. The show is titled “The Good Wife” after all. I predict she will remain married to Peter for the duration of the show. I would love to see Kalinda and Cary get together. And stay together. There is so much chemistry between them.

  • Whoa at TGW promo! What’s up with Will getting slammed into the wall..damn! I cannot wait!

    As for the whole Kalinda/Cary romance…not a fan of it…I hope whatever she does to him…it’s just to play with his emotions because he’s whack! Shes too much for him!

  • I LOVE Cary and Kalinda. Bring on the hot action! Also, they need to allow Archie to let her hair down. Literally. She always has it tied up! Even in the bed scenes…weird.

  • Not a Cary and Kalinda fan. She’s too much woman for him to handle plus the last episode made me not want them together even more. Sidebar, can’t wait for Spartacus.

  • Thanks for that Spartacus sneak preview. Another month and we get to see it all unfold.

  • omg love cary and kalinda! i can see the opposing view but really i think in the end they will def have a thing they are too hot! but cary needs to get his act together, he is dealing with a fierce sexy woman, who actually just wants to be loved by a strong guy..
