It’s been almost two weeks since the show capped its 2011 with a lot of question marks about Will, Alicia, and Peter. Starting Jan. 8, the show returns with four straight new episodes that can start to provide some answers. The new teaser promises to be “Better Than Ever.” You be the judge. READ FULL STORY
Tag: The Good Wife (79-91 of 163)
The American Film Institute has been releasing a top 10 movie list since 2000, yet one more volley in the heady awards season hullabaloo. But since 2001, the AFI has also released a list of its top television programs of the year, and their selections have often recognized shows overlooked by other awards groups, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, and Party Down.
This year’s list recognizes several shows for the first time, including HBO’s Game of Thrones, Showtime’s Homeland, FX’s Justified and Louie, and CBS’ The Good Wife. Notably absent: Fox’s Glee, which was on the ’09 and ’10 lists; AMC’s The Walking Dead, which made last year’s list; and any miniseries or made-for-TV movies, which usually make up a healthy portion of the list.
Check out the full top 10 below: READ FULL STORY
'Good Wife': Josh Charles talks Sunday's rising tensions -- and why Will hasn't told Alicia about the investigation
From the promo for this Sunday’s episode of CBS’ The Good Wife (watch it again below), we know that Diane (Christine Baranski) is done with subtle sexual harassment seminars. She confronts Will (Josh Charles) and tells him Peter (Chris Noth) is coming after him and it’s time to stop sleeping with Alicia (Julianna Margulies). Alicia raised the question of whether they should press pause last week, and Will let her make the call — they probably wouldn’t even if they said they would — and simply agreed. What’s he really feeling as their relationship continues to complicate? “I think he’s in survival mode. He’s not quite sure what’s coming at him. Is it something that he’s gonna be able to fight?” Charles tells EW. “Obviously, he has really deep feelings for Alicia, but at the same time, Will has worked really hard for a really long time to get where he’s at, and he’s gonna do everything he can to protect that. It’s clear that Diane knows what’s happening. That’s a big deal for Will to be confronted by his partner. They built the firm together. They’ve been through hell and back and have got it to a pretty decent place where they want it. So while it’s hard for Will to swallow, I think he does understand where Diane’s coming from because he would probably feel the same way if it was reversed. But again, when it comes to matters of the human heart, I don’t think all the legal brilliance necessarily comes into play. He’s torn.” READ FULL STORY

System failing. Too much TV. Abort! Abort!
Anyone else feeling a little overwhelmed by all the amazing television this week? Well, buck up, sissy pants! Fall TV is not for the weak. It’s for the bravest, strongest, most wonderfully reclusive individuals. Together we will conquer.
That said, I need your help. Be sure you’re sending in your scoop requests, sharing your TV ponderings, and telling me your general shows of interest so I can make sure I’m filling your need for scoops during this hectic TV time. (Send e-mails to email@example.com or follow me on Twitter: @EWSandraG) Until next week!

DEXTER REVISITS THE PAST IN AWESOME PREMIERE
Last season of Dexter ended with the door open for anything to happen. Lumen lost her darkness and left, Dexter had taken down the season’s villain, and there was even a small note of optimism on his part that he could one day live without his own darkness following him.
On Oct. 2, we pick up with Harrison starting pre-school and Dexter very much at peace with his darkness. And, dare I say, enjoying it again.
Without ruining too much (because I honestly felt incredibly psyched by the premiere and want you to experience it for yourself), much of the episode centers around Dexter tracking down a potential victim at his 20th high school reunion. There, we not only get a great picture of who Dexter was as a high school student, but also get a good laugh out how his classmates perceive him now. (He’s… popular!)
We’re also introduced to Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos’ demented characters. I can happily report that the first murder they are responsible for is one of the most disgusting ones I’ve ever seen on the show. Congrats, newbies! READ FULL STORY
