WE WANTED THIS DRAGON TO HAVE A LONG, LONG TAIL: Showrunners Robert and Michelle King talk to the Daily Beast about The Good Wife, going into detail about what's worked, what didn't this season, and what's left for this season:
[W]hat we realized is that the show needs a structural dilemma, not just a personal dilemma. The personal dilemma was how do you handle an affair, especially with a boss. What there really needs to be is some dilemma by design that threatens the law firm or the characters. It’s a lesson that goes back probably to Aristotle, which is: what are you fighting against? We’re going to figure out a better way to do that this year.
I'm guessing there's still no chance for a Michael J. Fox/Mamie Gummer/Carrie Preston spinoff, but a boy can dream, right?
