Fall TV Preview

The Good Wife First Look: Alicia and Cary Take on the NSA — Plus: Meet the 'New' Carey!

On the cusp of breaking away to start their own firm, Alicia and Cary will go after a big fish, as evidenced by these new photos from Season 5 of CBS’ The Good Wife.

In the coming season’s second episode (airing Oct. 6), Alicia and Cary sue the NSA on behalf of search engine/frenemy Chumhum — unaware that in doing so, Lockhart/Gardner has landed in the spy agency’s notorious monitoring crosshairs.

The courtroom photos offer a first look at Outsourced alum Ben Rappaport as Alicia and Cary’s new colleague, Carey — who is fated to join them once Florrick, Agos & Associates gets of the ground – plus judge Jeffrey Tambor.

    • Three must be some reason like a name mix-up affecting the outcome of something. Otherwise there is no good reason for two people with the same rare first name in the same office. TGW is a great show. Looking forward to Season 5.

    • Stockard Channing’s character ROCKS. Pretty much worth watching the show.

  • I love The Good Wife – the casting is simply excellent. But the kids are just ridiculously robotic!

  • Those two (Carey/Cary) look good together. Problem is that I don’t see the point of the that storyline. And right now I don’t have a single element to be excited about it. I was hoping they would have explored Cary and Alicia new partnership and subtle friendship. But Cary is in court….that’s something I suppose.
