  • Since when is Wendy Scott Carr a favorite? If anything she was one of the most annoying characters ever on GW

    • Ugh. They should bring back Elsbeth Tascioni, Louis Canning, Patti Nyholm and Nancy Crozier instead!

      • Elsbeth and Louis ARE coming back. Google.

      • YES, all of the above AND Michael J. Fox, please! And I always love Rita Wilson. But not Wendy Scott Carr, I can’t stand her (character)!!!
        Luckily we already get to see Stockard Channing and Michael J. Fox (as Louis Canning) on the show. Didn’t know Elsbeth Tascioni is coming back but I’ll google it. That would be great!

    • The character wasn’t supposed to be loved by the audience, but she was interesting and well-played by a radiant actress. I would personally rather see her get her own show than be limited to recurring roles on other shows, but I’ll take what I can get.

      • Eh honestly I didn’t really see what purpose her character served after her run for D.A. fell apart. Her character motives were extremely confusing.

    • Speak for yourself. Anika Noni Rose is one of the best actresses Good Wife has had.

      • Except we don’t care about the actress, we care about the character. Or, actually, we don’t care about her character. Even Becca, who imo was one of the most annoying characters on the show, was better than Wendy.

    • Right?! She was the worst and the way she talks grates on my last nerve. I am not pleased about this news. Now, Dallas Roberts is a win. I adore the dynamic between Owen and Alicia!

    • Yes, but WSC is one of the only characters that knows for sure about Alicia and Will (because of the Grand Jury testimony), and she has no love lost for Alicia or Peter, so things could get really interesting with her back on the show.

  • I absolutely love that Channing is the mom!

  • I just saw a rerun of one of Kathy Najimy’s Numbthreers episodes and wondered what she was doing these days.

  • Socio is getting quite the cast. ABCF would be dumb not to pick this up to series. But if ABCF does pass..which I highly doubt..the CW should swoop in and get it

    • It’s really jumping the gun to say they’d be “dumb” not to pick up the show at this stage. Maybe the pilot will suck.

  • Not looking forward to Wendy’s return. I hope they bring her back to kill her once and for all. Sanctimonious hypocrite!

  • So glad to see Wally Kurth and Robin Christopher return for the funeral! Now is a great time for a Dillon recast … how about John Paul Levossier from OLTL? The Quartermaines need a reboot. It was a mistake to dismantle that core family so many years ago.
