    JULIANNA MARGULIES cracked TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of the Year!

    http://time.com/3822964/julianna-margulies-2015-time-100/%5B/quote%5D

    Hmm can’t say I agree with this, if any actor from this show deserved it I would have gone for Alan Cumming: His book, his cabaret and his vocality over Scottish Independece in the past 12 months has only proven Cumming’s versatility and phlianthropy

    Certainly not one to fight Julianna’s corner but was that necessary?

    The Debate has just aired tonight here in the UK, and the show is on a great run of episodes right now with Hail Mary last week and this episode. A fantastic performance by Margulies hopefully puts the doubters of her for an Emmy nod this year to bed. This is arguably the one show that is the most up to date and contemporary with the issues it tackles. Emmy voters would be wise to acknowledge the show for this and it’s general brilliance for this season so far!

    Preach.

    Has anyone else noticed that CBS has been totally random and ill-logical with their scheduling this season?  As a long time viewer of TV I understand that networks have to take breaks in-season, but CBS has been all over the place this season.  

    I can understand taking a break because of the ACM awards, but still they have been all over the place with the scheduling of the Good Wife and several other shows.  Is there any reason why they are airing CSI: Cyber on a Tuesday night instead of Person of Interest?  Especially when POI is coming off of such a strong episode as last weeks?  Or is there any reason why NCIS: New Orleans seems to aire repeats almost every other week?  Or why the Good Wife was on a winter hiatus and then went on a several week hiatus after that? 

    As a fan this really stinks.  Or it is hard to feel like their is momentum building in the storylines when there is a break almost every other week.  I know this is a part of broadcast TV, but I do not remember a network being as frustrating or inconsistent with it as CBS has been this past season.    

    Has anyone else noticed this at all?

    That is weird, but CSI: Cyber in Tuesday is a test to see if the show can succeed in a better timeslot.  Whether it comes back next year is undecided at this point and Person of Interest is an aging show at this point that should hopefully have solidifed enough audience to follow it regardless of lead-in.

    Not to mention that with football overrruns it’s hard enough to keep track of The Good Wife and Madam Secretary as it is, without all these extra breaks…

    I know this will sound weird, but I’ve always thought that The Good Wife would be the perfect show to air on a Friday night.   Generally speaking its ratings are low anyway, and I think that it has the kind of audience that is savvy enough to DVR it and watch it quickly so its ratings wouldn’t be hurt that much.    As long as it continues to be a prestige show for CBS I think that it is safe.

    The new cast photos are lovely. The group picture and the photo of Baranski above are especially stunning.

    An impressive set of photos. They don’t look photoshopped into the photos too (I’m sure Chris Noth was once, he looked like a cardboard cut-out compared to the rest!)

    Who else is getting antsy for Sunday’s episode? If it delivers what the promo promises, we could be in for a hell of a ride (and possibly Julianna’s submission). I’m predicting that Alicia will leave FAL after her fight with Diane we saw in the promo. Pictures released from the finale show her working at home/with Finn. I also think Kalinda may kill Bishop, thus no one has to testify against him, which will lead to her exit. I wonder how closely they will recreate the press conference scene from the pilot in Sunday’s epsiode. I bet you aren’t going to want to miss it, especially if you’re planning to skip The Good Wife to watch Game of Thrones instead.

    Here’s some new scoop from TVLine’s Ask Ausiello:

    Question: What happened to Lana Delaney on The Good Wife? I thought Kalinda said she took her seriously. There’s also the white card they haven’t explained, and Lana’s FBI job. There are so many loose ends with the Kalinda/Lana story. —Eve
    Ausiello: We went straight to showrunner Robert King with your question about the hotel-key-looking rectangle that drug kingpin Lemond Bishop wanted slipped into the purse of Jill Flint’s alter ego. (If you’ll recall, Kalinda instead broke it in half, although her refusal to betray her lady love probably did nothing to alleviate Bishop’s concerns about the FBI teaming up with the State’s Attorney’s office to bring him down.) “That’s really a very good question,” says King, with a chuckle. “I think you should continue to wonder. [That plot thread] is not necessarily in the realm of the Russian assassin on The Sopranos, but it is still alive. Let’s just leave it there.” (By the way, Eve, you’ve got to hit the comments and share what brand of ginkgo biloba you take, because your memory for details is pretty impressive!)

    Question: Is there a chance for The Good Wife‘s Alicia and Peter to reconnect romantically in the wake of them aligning against the Democratic party machine? Previews for Episode 20 kind of make it look that way. —Russell
    Ausiello: Love, as they say, is a many splendored thing, but Team Florrick has its own unique take on the concept, says Robert King, flashing back to Episode 18. “What was very clarifying was that scene when Alicia and Peter say they’re done with arguing… [Peter] starts getting this look in his eyes and [essentially] saying, ‘Let’s f–k,’ and then Alicia is saying, ‘No, no, no, no, that’s not what this is about,’” King offers, with a hearty chuckle. “They wind up just sitting there and drinking together. They’re championing detente in a very fraught relationship just because of exhaustion. At a certain point the human body has a great and strange ability to numb all the pain, and that’s where Alicia and Peter tend to go now.” Nevertheless, faced with an outside threat, “They aid, support and give strength to each other,” he adds. “Whether that goes deeper is a bigger question.” Michelle King, for her part, offers that, “Whether Alicia and Peter are living under the same roof or not, there is something very real there. We’ve seen a very deep connection between these two people throughout the series.” In other words, don’t bet the entire mortgage on Finn Polmar, OK?

    http://tvline.com/2015/04/22/ask-ausiello-spoilers-on-big-bang-vampire-diaries-arrow-good-wife-castle-walking-dead-and-more/

    So basically we have Robert King fessing up to abandoning what seemed like a major plot point for Kalinda in the beginning of the season.
