One of the most talked show this season is The Good Wife and I don’t blame them. The show had always been the quality show with great writing and great acting with superb guest stars, but this season tops the cake. Season 4 was good, but a lot of storylines were sloppy and some characters turned for the worse. The last half of the season though kicked in high gear and the storylines hit the gas pedal and didn’t stop. I thought to myself finally the show that I fell inlove with is back. With season 5 half way done, winter hiatus, I thought it would be great what I think of the season so far and the grade I give the show.
With this season I didn’t know how far the writers were going to go or better yet what will happen. After the first half of the season is done I didn’t expect any of this to happen or be this good. Most shows lose steam after a few seasons and being on the fifth season I thought for sure it was done. Instead it became this new series, but with the same people in it, well that’s what it feels like to me and I love it. The storylines are so well written and it isn’t where there is too much happening or too many storylines that it’s hard to keep track of them.
One storyline I can’t wait to see more of is Kalinda’s storyline and what kind of role she will be playing now that she and Cary are ok again. I definitely don’t want them to be in a relationship, but rather a friendship. I wish there were more scenes with Kalinda and Alicia which would be very interesting now that they are on opposing sides. I do want more Diane and Alicia scenes and also want them to become friends again as Alicia did look up to Diane. Will and Alicia are going to break, I love this tension between them, but it is a matter of time before one or both breaks and they just kiss each other.
The storyline I have been waiting for and excited that it is coming up is the votes for the governor ship. I am hoping that Alicia leaves Peter and finds out that Will has known all along and gets angry with him. They both argue at each other, but then stop and talk calmly. They stare are each other for a minute in silence and Diane interrupts them as they are working together on this! By the end of the episode they realize it is better if they work together then always battling each other in court.
These are some of my predications of what I would like to happen the second half of season 5, what are yours? What do you think will happen? Do you think Florrick/Agos & Assoc. can work with Lockhart/Gardner? What do you think will happen to Will and Alicia with all the tension? Are you excited for the second half to focus more on Kalinda?
Want to start a new show, watch Person of Interest. It’s mind blowing!! I don’t even know where to begin with the show. One of the few shows I make sure I don’t read any spoilers. The only show that I know and watch that actually takes risks. Most shows when a main character is in danger we all know they will survive, well here you just never know.
If you haven’t watched the show and plan on to or have not caught up with the episodes I will recommend to stop reading at this point as I will talk about the latest episodes. SPOILERS!!!
When the new season started we got two new regulars which were Shaw (Sarah Shai) and Root (Amy Acker). Both were recurring characters in season 2. For me, I wanted to know more about Shaw and loved how she was, she would butt heads with Harold. As for Root, I thought that it would’ve been too much for the character to be a regular and it would’ve been better if she was a recurring guest instead that the mystery with her is great, but having too much of her would be too much. After January 7th episode I can’t wait to see more of Root and what will happen to her and Harold’s tug of war! I love when they work together because they are unstoppable, I also love when they are against each other and trying to proof which one is right. The second half of the season will be great.
When Carter passed I didn’t really know what was going to happen now that our beloved cop/detective is gone. I was really upset and thought the show might go down from here. It was the smartest choice the writers have taken only because now there is much more depth in the storylines now with mind blowing scenes. I hate watching an episode each week and like to have a few episodes to watch back to back, but then when I’m all caught up I want more. This show is the only show I watch right now that has me guessing to second guessing what is going to happen. The storylines of each character is just amazing. The only person I would like to have more of is Fusco (even though his character isn’t much needed anymore as much) would love to know more about his background even if it’s a little bit.
I really hope John and the flight attendant begin to have a relationship. I love the regulars, but I want more of Zoe Morgan (Paige Turco) and Grace Hendricks (Carrie Preston). The different dynamics both characters bring is just superb. I love when we see Zoe and Reese work together and the tension they bring. I would love to have her back at least an episode or 2 in the last half of the season. Carrie’s character Grace I would love her to see Harold and think she is seeing things and eventually figures out he is still alive.
What do you think of this season so far? Who do you want to see back? What do you think of the new regulars so far? Are you sad about Carter? How do you feel about it now than when you first saw the episode?
The PCA awards were last night. I didn’t watch the award show as most award shows get me upset. With the PCA’s I just don’t care for people choice as the winners are fan based. This year though some of my favorite shows/actors won last night which makes me happy. Some of them will never get the recognition they deserve so it was a happy ending that they won an award.
One thing I hated though was the ones who got the win didn’t even get recognized as they were pushed aside and didn’t get to be on stage to thank whoever they wanted to thank. It really upset me that they did that.
Here are some I am glad they won!
Even though it’s a year too late I am still happy Stana Katic won for best drama actress. She definitely deserves it. Even though season 6 isn’t great, she has made Castle and for years brought the show to the top. One of the underrated actress and it’s great to see her get recognized for her work even though cbs did the winning behind the stage which upsets me.
Great win for Josh Charles and The Good Wife no one deserves the win more then them. The second half of season 4 and season 5 have been phenomenal and it’s one of the best quality shows out there. Josh is one of the underrated actors who has been overlooked for so many years, but this season he deserves to win every category he is in.
Congrats to all the winners and who was nominated. Everyone is well deserved.

My Top Shows!
These shows (The Good Wife, Person of Interest, Orange is the New Black, Orphan Black, The Americans, Downton Abbey, Elementary) my list as the best shows of 2013 is simple the writing, the storylines, and of course the acting.
Elementary is one of those shows you keep watching and don’t realize you can’t stop watching because it is so good. This is the first show that I’m ok with having no couple to ship (even though I ship Watson and Holmes friendship).
I was skeptical if I was going to enjoy Downton Abbey as Matthew is dead. I honestly was angry and believed the show will not be the same in a bad way. So glad I was wrong as Series 4 is one of my favorites and enjoyed it very much. I am anxious to see what is next season is in store.
When I first saw the promo for The Americans I knew I was going to enjoy it and it will be my guilty pleasure. It turned from guilty pleasure to OMG I can’t stop watching the episodes to being obsessed with it. The wigs, the love/hate relationships, the kick ass ness, the spying is just superb.
Orphan Black I had no idea what was going on when I started watching the show. I didn’t read anything about the show and I was so confused to what exactly what was happening, but I didn’t want to stop watching. I was so intrigued by the third episode I was obsessed. Tatiana blows your mine as does Felix.
I knew a lot of the big time actors on Orange is the New Black so I gave the show a shot. I didn’t expect to enjoy the show as much. The writing is amazing as well as the dynamics on the show. So much storylines the show can go with also background stories. The crazy thing there isn’t one character on the show I dislike, even the ones I should dislike I love.
The most underrated show is Person of Interest. For 2 seasons this show has been consistent with no storyline that is boring or the main focus from the other storylines. It is the only show that my jaw drops every episode, the only show that doesn’t take think inside of the box, and takes chances. The writing is just wow and so is the acting. One of the best shows of 2013 without a doubt.
The show that has the number one spot for best show of 2013 is The Good Wife. After season 4 I thought the show was losing steam with boring storylines. Season 5 came with a bang is still going strong. The show is now a new beginning and kind of starting fresh, like it’s a new show with all the old characters. Not a lot of shows can do this and pull it off, but TGW did it and doing a great job at it.
