So cool! Hope this FYC campaign and free viewing helps! I mean, of all TV series (besides the limited series Watchmen), this is the most timely as to what is happening in America right now. Hope voters choose to recognize it.
I’m hoping that at the very least The Good Fight can score a nomination in Writing for a Drama Series for Robert & Michelle King! It feels like the type of stand-alone episode the Emmys would nominate, even if they don’t recognize the series in other categories.July 5, 2020 at 6:18 am #1203568530
I just watched the season 4 finale. It’s probably my favorite episode of the entire series and I didn’t want it to end! Season 4 has been incredible on so many levels and is probably my favorite season. I can’t wait for season 5, especially the continuation of Baranski’s and Michael Boatman’s Memo 618 story line.
I read some posts/ comments from all the way from page 1 and it is so disappointing that Delroy Lindo and Cush Jumbo are leaving the show. It will certainly not be the same without them. I hope the show can get at least a surprise Writing nomination at this years Emmys. It’s really not fair that they get shut out year after year.July 10, 2020 at 1:02 am #1203579514
Finally I was able to finish the season and it’s sucks that they could not filmed the entire thing before covid, really frustanting. But even unfinished it was a creative, inspired and fresh bunch of episode as always, specially the premiere, that was a terrific hour. Episode 4 and the false finale were the others standouts.
Baranski was giving a great performance across the season and from what we saw in the last episode she would have more good material in the next ones. Audra Mcdonald was good too.
Well, I hope we will have the chance to see this season arc finished before they start a new one in season 5. Maybe it will be similar to season 2, when they finished Maia parents story and started a new one.July 10, 2020 at 9:35 am #1203579993
The premiere has racked up over 350,000 views on YouTube in a week. Not bad considering subscribers saw it and voters already had access.
Nice to see the series score another TCA nom yesterday, too!

Terrific! I know they keep emphasizing their hope that Cush and Delroy will return briefly to wrap up their arcs. I’m wondering if Delroy will ultimately stay on now that Harlem’s Kitchen isn’t moving forward? One can hope.

Already expected but I’m happy their stories will be closed and we’ll see them one last time.April 6, 2021 at 1:32 am #1204181218
Cush Jumbo seems to be juggling so many projects at the moment that I feared this wouldn’t happen. Glad both she and Delroy are coming back for a proper send-off. I yearn for a last Andrea Martin appearance too.

Apparently Wayne Brady has joined the cast for Season 5.
It sounds like Delroy and Cush will only be in the premiere episode. Was slightly hoping for a couple episodes, but I’ll take what I can get!April 6, 2021 at 11:23 am #1204182087
I need Delroy and Cush to be Emmy nominated for these roles. Hopefully the fact they’ll go guest and the show will have more visibility with a bigger streaming service can help them.

I had hoped Delroy would sign on for a couple of episodes, too, with Harlem’s Kitchen not going forward, but I’m really happy he and Cush went through the effort – during COVID, no less – to come back (to NY from London for Cush) for the premiere. It would have been such a disservice to the show and their work if their absences were just explained away casually.
Foolish to be optimistic about The Good Fight‘s Emmy prospects, but I do think Delroy in guest would be compelling to some voters. The outcry over his egregious snubs at Globes, SAG, and Oscars for Da 5 Bloods was huge, and I think there’s a realization that he’s overdue for any kind of recognition. It doesn’t hurt that his work here has been Emmy worthy in at least two of the four seasons.

I’m cautiously optimistic about The Good Fight‘s future Emmy chances. I do think the fact it’s now on Paramount+ (which will likely garner more subscribers with some of their future Oscar contenders premiering on there this year) and the fact that Baranski will be back into the awards and viewer spotlight with The Gilded Age, it has a chance. One noticeable thing that happened when Gillian Anderson retuned to the awards conversation from The Crown was how something like The Fall (which had been overlooked previously) and Sex Education (which had been overlooked when it came to industry recognition) started to surge in popularity. The former grew in record breaking numbers on streaming and the latter started to get name dropped in interviews with all sorts of creators and celebrities (Dan Levy being the most notable of them).
A similar thing happened with Fleabag and Killing Eve. I remember there was a lot of attention on Fleabag when Colman won her Oscar for The Favourite (she even ended up being high in the Gold Derby odds even before people realistically started to consider Waller-Bridge and the show for nominations). In turn, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s buzz for Fleabag ended up generating more visibility for Killing Eve (which went from around 2 to 10 Emmy nominations in the space of a year).
It’s not implausible for the same to happen with The Good Fight if Christine Baranski generates a lot of individual buzz as a result of The Gilded Age. Although I won’t predict it.
