I never watched The Good Wife, nor The Good Wife. We have CBS AA. Could we start watching season 1 and know where we are and enjoy it? Yeah, that’s subjective, but I welcome opinions.

You'll get more out of it if you've seen "The Good Wife", but they're very different shows. Only two main characters and one fan favorite recurring character crossed over to the new series -- which takes place at a completely different law firm. So if you start with the pilot for "The Good Fight" you should be alright.

And, The Good Wife is a great show to binge. I remember binging the first several seasons until I caught up with the live broadcasts.

There are a lot of different story arcs all going on at the same time which, for me, is something that makes binging all the more satisfying.

Plus, The Good Wife is a great show...period.

I am enjoying The Good Fight (I have been viewing the show when the discs are released) but it is a different animal than The Good Wife. TGF is much more political than TGW which spent much more of its time in the courtroom.

We have just completed season 3. Is it just me or the series getting weirder as the seasons roll by. I like that the GF can tackle subjects that a broadcast series can. But it’s getting weird. With Season 4, it’s almost like there’s a new show runner. First we get a dream episode and then we get a huge change is circumstances for the firm.

I’m not a big fan of conspiracy story arcs. So, still watching, but not liking it as much. Roland Blum, I really hate his character and not in a good way. They good drop him and I’d be happy.

I just finished watching Season 4 last night. Spoilers ahead for those who haven't watched season four.

First, I know the show has been using the F-Bomb since the very first episode with Diane watching the inauguration, but this season they seemed to go overboard with its use, multiple times in each episode to the point where it's annoying. These are educated, sophisticated people who should be able to find other expletives to express their dismay or to emphasize points.

The truncated season didn't allow us to have any wrap ups with the John Larouquette firm overriding story arc, Cush Jumbo's million dollar windfall, or Delroy Lindo's presidential ambitions, the latter two of which should have allowed them to write them gracefully out of the series since they didn't resign for season five of the show. We also got no closure on Memo 618.

I did love the mystery surrounding Jeffrey Epstein's cryptic clues and afterlife that served as the season finale. Great final reveal of BUD.

I'm a lawyer at a large international law firm. Almost everyone at my shop swears like sailors. For some files, on some days, it's like breathing...

Yes, I remember that and we had watched all there was. It seemed lime Matt was saying there were now more episodes.
No, I just said I had watched season four which was, if you recall, seven episodes. I'm assuming the season was meant to be ten episodes, but I've never read for sure if they were going for eight, nine, or ten.
