Member: Rank 1
Has anyone else noticed the amount of Star Trek and The Sopranos actors are in this show?

Was wondering what the link is! Can't be a coincidence?

I have spotted a few so far.. going to watch the entire series before I start counting but so far it was enough to make me curious anyway! :)

The Good Wife
is an American legal and political drama television series that aired on CBS from September 22, 2009, to May 8, 2016.[1] The series focuses on Alicia Florrick, the wife of the Cook County State's Attorney, who returns to her career in law after the events of a public sex and political corruption scandal involving her husband. The series, created by Robert and Michelle King, stars Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles, Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi, and Alan Cumming, and features Chris Noth in a recurring role. The executive producers are Ridley Scott, Charles McDougall, and David W. Zucker.[2] The Good Wife is a heavily serialized show featuring several story arcs that carry over several episodes, as well as stand-alone procedural storylines that are concluded by the end of each episode. The serial plots have been especially showcased in its highly praised fifth season. This is a rarity among The Good Wife's broadcaster CBS, as most of its shows are procedural.[3]

The Good Wife won numerous prestigious awards, including five Emmys and the 2014 Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Drama. The performances of the show's cast have been particularly recognized, with Julianna Margulies' role as Alicia Florrick receiving significant praise.[4] The show has especially received wide acclaim for its insight on social media and the internet in society, politics and law. With the current climate of how television shows are written and produced, The Good Wife is considered by several critics to be network television's last great drama[5][6][7] producing a full 22 episode season while other and future acclaimed shows are in favor of shorter 6–12 episode seasons. CBS announced in a promo aired during Super Bowl 50, on February 7, 2016, that the show was ending with its seventh season. The final episode aired on May 8, 2016.


The Good Fight

The first season contains 10 episodes,[2] and it premiered on February 19, 2017, with the first episode airing on CBS and the latter nine episodes airing on CBS All Access.[1] The series was initially planned to air in May 2017, but was moved up after production delays forced CBS to postpone the premiere of the new series Star Trek: Discovery.[3]

The series follows Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart, as she is forced out of Lockhart, Deckler, Gussman, Lee, Lyman, Gilbert-Lurie, Kagan, Tannebaum, & Associates after an enormous financial scam destroys the reputation of her goddaughter Maia (Rose Leslie) and Diane's savings, leading them to join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago's pre-eminent law firms.

Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and Alison Scott, with Phil Alden Robinson producing and co-writing the first episode.[1] On March 15, 2017, CBS All Access renewed the show for a second season with an increased run of 13 episodes,[4][5] premiering on March 4.
