Finalmente consegui acessar os episódios de THE GOOD FIGHT, o spin off de THE GOOD WIFE, que vão ao ar na CBS americana.

Diane Lockhart(a ótima Christine Baranski), uma das protagonistas sofre um golpe financeiro e tem que continuar a advogar, agora sem a pompa e circunstancia que tinha na firma que fundara.

Ao lado dela uma advogada talentosa em busca de afirmação Lucca Quinn, feita pela atriz Cush Jumbo (também vista em THE GOOD WIFE) e Rosie Leslie(a escocesa de GAME OF THRONES), como a novata Maia Rindell, uma das pivôs do escândalo que abala todos os personagens.

Ainda no elenco, nomes fortes como Delroy Lindo, Paul Guilfoyle (CSI), Bernardette Peters, Christine Lahti e Matthew Perry.

A produção segue o caminho impecável de THE GOOD WIFE e as histórias estão me parecendo mais atuais (muito Trump, terrorismo, quotas e golpes financeiros) que a velha cantilena sobre Alicia. Acho que o fato de ser uma série VOD deu mais liberdade aos roteiristas.

Parece que vai dar certo, tanto que a CBS ja pediu a segunda temporada.

 

I finally got access to the episodes of THE GOOD FIGHT, the spin off of THE GOOD WIFE, which aired on American CBS.

Diane Lockhart (the great Christine Baranski), one of the protagonists suffers a financial debacle and has to continue to advocate, now without the pomp and circumstance that had in the firm that she founded.

Beside her there was a talented attorney Lucca Quinn, made by actress Cush Jumbo (also seen in THE GOOD WIFE) and Rosie Leslie (the Scottish actress from GAME OF THRONES), as the rookie Maia Rindell, one of the pivots of the scandal that shakes all the characters.

Still in the cast, strong names like Delroy Lindo, Paul Guilfoyle (CSI), Bernardette Peters, Christine Lahti and Matthew Perry.

The production follows the flawless path of THE GOOD WIFE and the stories are seeming more interesting (much Trump, terrorism, quotas and financial scams) than the old song about Alicia. I think the fact that it’s a VOD series gave writers more freedom.

It looks like it will work out, so much so that CBS has already asked for the second season.
