I spent most of the summer watching episodes of ‘The Good Wife’ on Amazon Video. I’d never seen the show before and I happened upon one episode one day and I was hooked. Of course, I didn’t watch the show every day but I did have a few days when I had my own personal GW marathons in my home.
I only had 2 episodes to watch so last night I made it a special night complete with a nice big bowl of light buttered popcorn. Hey, I deserved it! I crammed 7 seasons of this show in almost as many months so these last 2 episodes were going to be epic. Well, I’m still a little dumbfounded and I feel cheated. I got the ending – I completely understood it. But I guess I just didn’t like it. I didn’t like that Jason disappeared and I didn’t like that Diane and Alicia were no longer going to be friends or partners. The writers went to a lot of trouble to make sure we knew that no matter what happened to Saint Alicia that she’d always be strong. I suppose it mirrors my life too closely and maybe that’s why I wasn’t in love with the ending. Did I really need another dose of reality in my life? I suppose I could withstand a little fairytale perspective every once in awhile and I just didn’t get it last night.
