Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Good Fight, like its sister series The Good Wife, contains strong themes ranging from relationship issues and infidelity to more politically charged issues such as police brutality. There's some iffy language ("damn" and "bitch," and "f--k" in streaming versions). Partial buttocks are shown, and drinking (wine, cocktails) is visible.
Is It Any Good?
This dramatic, entertaining procedural offers a compelling story that centers on one of its parent series' strongest characters. It seamlessly reestablishes Diane Lockhart's strong, complex character as she rebuilds her life and redefines her role both in and outside of a law firm. But the show also boasts even more robust characters, especially other strong women such as Maia Rindell and Lucca Quinn.
The incorporation of race as a subtext adds an interesting tension to the show, as do some of the cast's edgier, more intimate personal relationships. Meanwhile, the interactions with the cast at Lockhart's former firm, including Howard Lyman (Jerry Adler) and David Lee (Zach Grenier), and appearances by folks such as Bernadette Peters, Matthew Perry, and Carrie Preston successfully add to the action. Law procedural fans won't be disappointed, but if you're simply looking for a good show to watch, The Good Fight makes a great case for tuning in.
Did we miss something on diversity?
