THE GOOD WIFE “Foreign Affairs” Review

THE GOOD WIFE "Foreign Affairs" Season 2 Episode 20 – "It’s like being in a Woody Allen movie." Well, not one of the good ones. My love for The Good Wife knows no bounds…or so I thought. It started off promising: Alicia’s househunting is interrupted by a cascade of phone calls, Eli feels the pressure of the final stretch as Wendy Scott-Carr nails a crucial interview and gives his wife a huge political boost.

This turned into a baffling episode of Big Bad Dictator as Lockhart & Gardner’s case about Venezualan oil gets hijacked by Fred Dalton Thompson and Chavez. Yes, Chavez. Hugo Chavez.

America Ferrara is a good actress and her role on the show is good, but she was totally shoehorned in as the intern-and I’m not sure what her boyfriend was doing in the episode.
