    Taye Diggs is a great fit for TGW. It would be great if he ended up sticking around. Wonder if he will cross paths with Kalinda : )

  2. Alicia says:

    How the heck Diane possibly joining Florrick/Agos worthy of a “spoiler alert!” comment? The episode aired almost 2 months ago. Anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, wouldn’t care about the show enough to be annoyed by Diane’s name appearing in the article.

    • Addie says:

      Because if they didn’t, there would be 20 comments by now (likely all from the same person) complaining about “how dare they post a spoiler when not everyone has watched it yet!” I personally feel the same way as you, anyone who actually cares about what happened in the finale already knows.

    • B says:

      The move was never confirmed, only proposed.

      • Asta says:

        So it really is a spoiler alert, one that I’m happy to know. Taye has chemistry with everyone, and it would be great to see if sparks flies with Alicia. I think they are just passing by all these hot men to see who ignites with A.

    “A ‘darker, more intense’ and Hunger Games-like update of American Gladiators…” What will they call it? The Starving Gladiators?

  4. Billie says:

    II love Taye Diggs! Am watching Murder in the First. Already watch Good Wife. Will be excited to see him on there.

  5. Dean says:

    Hope this doesn’t interfere with his murder in the first schedule
