The Good Wife Season 5 Review “The Bit Bucket”

Whenever you have a show with a large cast, screen time can come at a premium. Depending on where certain storylines are going, certain characters can casually float on and off screen, or disappear for episodes at a time. Eventually, all shows are faced with the tough issue of integrating characters into storylines or giving them storylines of their own. Too often, characters can feel shoehorned into the proceedings even if the story doesn’t require their involvement. It takes a very strong show to be able to cut ties with a capable actor because they no longer service the story they want to tell. Most recently,Parks and Recreation announced that Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe would be departing midway through this season. Though Lowe and Jones are valuable comedic actors, their stories had run their courses. It was time, everyone involved knew it, and there doesn’t seem to be any lingering hard feelings. Now, it’s time for The Good Wife to follow suit.
