THE GOOD WIFE “Silver Bullet” Review

THE GOOD WIFE "Silver Bullet" Season 2 Episode 15 – Many love lives are brought to the forefront of yet another delightful, savoury episode filled with moral ambiguities and clever twists. Eli finds himself actually liking a key political weapon whose life he must destroy in order to advance his game. Diane’s bullet testing lover boy Kurt (Gary Coleman) makes a return, fighting a thirty six million dollar law suit after he is accused of providing false evidence. Kalinda is getting anonymous phone calls…guess from who. And Alicia’s daughter Grace is having a crisis of faith. She wants to know why Alicia does not love Jesus. America Ferrara is so damn likeable. So was her character. I guess that was the point. This is unfortunate because for the first time since he first appeared on screen as Peter’s campaign advisor, I really wanted Eli to lose. Ferrara plays a young graduate student of economic blah blah blah, financing her degree by nannying. She’s pretty much the perfect American. However, she’s an illegal immigrant. She’s lived in the United States since she was two. And she’s taken care of Wendy Scott Carr’s kids, which essentially puts a target on her back.

'Good Wife': High-caliber 'Bullet'

The Good Wife  emphasized the personal lives and feelings of its protagonists this week, and after last week’s tense Kalinda’s-secrets outing, Tuesday night’s edition, titled "Silver Bullet," was an hour that let us catch our breath and catch up with other characters. Most prominent among these was Christine Baranski’s Diane, who still goes all swoony at the sight of Tea Partying, gun-loving ballistics expert Kurt McVeigh, played so well by Gary Cole. (The secret to Cole’s performance, I’ve realized, is that he plays McVeigh as though he was a character in a Western, while all the city slickers around him gawp — it’s a shrewd acting choice.) The plot involved  revisiting an earlier case at which McVeigh may have given false or mistaken testimony. Getting the stubborn, prideful McVeigh to admit on the stand that he may have made an error was the challenge. The sub-plot was Diane and Kurt’s attraction to each other. Middle-aged love affairs are so rarely seen in prime time that I congratulate  The Good Wife , even as I envision, with irritation, sniffy young ad-buyers lowering CBS’ rates for skewing "old."

‘The Good Wife,’ Season 2, Episode 15, ‘Silver Bullet’: TV Recap

Continuing to set itself up as the "Love Boat" of serious drama—albeit with guest stars of major talent—the series recruits America Ferrera to play Wendy Scott-Carr’s illegal nanny in "Silver Bullet," an episode that also boasts Jerry Stiller as a narcoleptic judge and Gary Cole in his recurring role as Diane’s right wing suitor. More winningly, it is an hour filled with wavering convictions and conflicting emotions as Eli gets a heart, Diane forfeits hers, and Alicia struggles to understand Grace’s newfound love of Jesus. Gold is arguing with his daughter Marissa (Sarah Steele), trying to keep her from going to Israel, when newly recruited pollster Matt Becker interrupts to announce he has found a silver bullet to use against Wendy Scott-Carr: until recently, she had employed an illegal alien to care for her kids. Back at Lockhart, Gardner, Diane is beating up the staff, leading Derrick to conclude, "She’s on to us….She’s gearing up for a fight." Will plays dumb when Bond adds that he’s going to rehire the guy he just fired—because he needs his vote.

The Good Wife Review: "Silver Bullet"

From the topic of illegal aliens, to accusations that the Tea Party is racist, to jokes about Sarah Palin in 2012 and a question I never expected to hear on primetime television ( Why do you hate Jesus? ), "Silver Bullet" was another strong, mature, intelligent episode of The Good Wife . It's possible I've written that before. But it continues to be true week after week. As usual, we were thrust right into a story on this episode; no time wasted, no scene set, simply a shot of Diane at work, drilling her underlings (a bit too hard for Will's taste) and focused on the task at hand... ... until a tall, gun-loving drink of water named Kurt McVeigh strolled back into her life. Played perfectly by Gary Cole, McVeigh serves as the ideal love interest for Diane. We know very little about this partner outside of work, making her school girl-like crush on this Tea Partier a joy to watch. I smiled at her initial reaction when seeing Kurt in the office, and then laughed out loud when she realized he had not yet signed the retainer, meaning she could "depose" her would-be client one more time - if you know what I mean!

'The Good Wife' Season 2, Episode 15 Recap

Holy guest stars, Alicia Florrick! The names were out in force, with Gary Cole, Jerry Stiller and Betty America Ferrera all jumping on 'The Good Wife' train in 'Silver Bullet.' "What I give a damn about is ... " cue Gary Cole and what was sure to be an endearing episode. Diane-centric episodes are always enjoyable because Christine Baranski delivers an exceptional performance. Whether she has one scene or shoulders the whole episode, Baranski brings magic to 'The Good Wife.' It was a predictably cute episode, with Kalinda's story, the election and the Will/Alicia relationship drama taking a backseat. After last week's big episode, it made sense to not try and top it. This episode let 'Net Worth' sink in a bit more. Read More... //www.tvsquad.com/2011/02/23/the-good-wife-season-2-episode-15-recap/

The Good Wife 2.15 "Last Shot" Review

There is so much going on in this episode it's impossible to pin down one vision to use in this post. So, I'm just going to continue telling you what I did and didn't like about the episode in plain ole words. Liberal Diane's conservative on again/off again lover (how that even works is beyond me) Kurt McVeigh is back and needs Diane's help to protect him in a civil case where Lockhart Gardner made a lot of money, and he's accused of evidence tampering. She hadn't even decided to help him out until another attorney told her they want to use a pretty, well known liberal to help in a racist defense. The Good Wife has such a great way of playing politics in ways we'd never imagine. In a Alice like swirl into the rabbit-hole, Diane is pointing out during a case that the Tea Party is not a racist organization any more than any other political group.

'The Good Wife': America Ferrera, please come back

America Ferrera and Jerry Stiller joined "The Good Wife" for a pair of guest-starring roles. We give America a big thumbs up and Jerry a big thumbs down, though it wasn't his fault. It was the character we didn't like. Case of the WeekGary Cole is back as Kurt McVeigh. Diane's speechlessness when she spots him is adorable. Kurt is being sued by Jason Beltran, a man freed because of a crime lab mix-up or a frame job, depending on who you ask. He was either involved in a bank robbery where cops were shot or he was an innocent bystander.Tommy Segara is the attorney for Beltran, who claims the cops framed Beltran and got the crime lab to fabricate evidence and McVeigh to change his testimony. His insistence that Diane not be the pretty face defending them gets her to take the case for McVeigh.Diane and McVeigh have some gun-fueled sexy time before he... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/02/the-good-wife-america-ferrera-please-come-back.html
