THE GOOD WIFE “Affairs Of The State” Review

THE GOOD WIFE "Affairs Of The State" Season 3 Episode 6 – This episode was all about Cary Agos, the charming worm from season one who tried to thwart Alicia’s advancement in Lockhart & Gardner, only to find himself shunted aside to the DA’s office where he soon got into the groove of going up against the big firm as the prosecution. Unsurprisingly, he was rather suited to that role. In this episode we see Cary go from cupboard office to cubby office to Cook’s Deputy State’s Attorney’s office. Much of the bustling about was just Brody’s way of fucking with him. But it sure was nice to see Cary open those double doors into his new space.

I don’t think we’ve ever had Cary in a romantic relationship – a few flirtatious moments with Kalinda, but that’s it as far as I know. I had no idea what to make of that whole yarn other than to comment that I thought it was kind of weird: the show has probably a higher number of non-Caucasians on their acting staff (though only Panjabi features prominently) and it’s like they wanted to draw attention to that fact. Maybe it’s because they’ve done nothing, in the three years, to build up Brody as a character other than to make him someone I dislike, but that moment seemed really false. I can’t really imagine a situation where someone, seeing a woman interacting with a man, would stop her in the corridors of work and inform her that the guy has a sexual preference for women of her ethnicity.
