'The Good Wife' recap: Miranda Cosgrove tried to 'climb out of the Disney ghetto thing'

The Good Wife is so good, it can do the sort of stunt casting that makes most other shows look as though they’re begging for viewers and pull it off with whatever passes for integrity in the world of law firms. By which I mean, if you had no idea that guest star Miranda Cosgrove, playing a Disney Channel teenybop idol, was a Nickelodeon teenybop idol (iCarly), you probably just thought this young woman was a good actress in a clever plot.

Cosgrove’s Sloan Burchfield was an actress-singer trying to "climb out of the Disney ghetto thing." To make her image hipper, Sloan went to a nightclub, drank too much, and subsequently was accused of hitting a car, injuring a woman, and found herself on trial for attempted murder. Alicia’s firm defended her.

I am a huge fan of the show because everything is so well done, especially getting the important details right. However, I was somewhat disappointed in the plot flaw within this episode. Ramming the rear quarter of a car parked in the usual manner cannot be considered attempted murder due to the fact that there would be no expectation of death as free exits via the opposite car door(s) existed throughout the incident. Repeated attempts notwithstanding. Assault with a deadly weapon would have been the maximum charge before plea bargaining. Hope they tighten things back up in the future. I abandoned CSI long ago when they gave up even trying but I don't expect to see that occur here.
