'The Good Wife' Season 5 DVD Review: Brilliant Season, Fantastic
Season five of The Good Wife was a game-changer, but is its home video counterpart as impressive? On Tuesday, CBS Home Entertainment released The Good Wife: The Fifth Season on DVD, and we've examined the multi-disc set to render a verdict about whether or not it belongs on your shelf.

(SPOILER ALERT - This DVD review contains discussion of the fifth season of The Good Wife. If you're not aware of the season's major plot twist and don't want to be spoiled, skip this review.)

'The Good Wife' Review: 'The Deep Web'

'The Good Wife' Review: 'The Deep Web'
After last week's uncomfortable episode, The Good Wife opts for a lighter touch this week, and it mostly works. When Alicia meets Daniel Irwin (Nestor Carbonell, from every show ever made, but we're always going to think of him as Batmanuel from The Tick) while both are going through the tedious process of jury duty, flirting is immediate.

Everything else that follows is awkward, from Alicia talking to herself when she doesn't know what to do, to her watching some intentionally bad film that's way too on the nose. The good news here is that Carbonell's a natural in the romantic foil role (...

'The Good Wife' Review: 'Tying The Knot'

'The Good Wife' Review: 'Tying The Knot'
You could call this the "reunion" episode of The Good Wife. Should be future Emmy winner Josh Charles is back, directing the action, while Dylan Baker once again reprises his role as the show's creepiest client, Colin Sweeney. The result is an installment that's kind of like Clue, except without the three different endings.

Needing a very important signature on some merger paperwork, Alicia gets roped into Sweeney's engagement party and stuck having to convince his equally bizarre fiancee Renata (played by Laura Benanti, previously seen as Det. Nick Amaro's wife Marie on Law & Order: Speci...

How Many Sharks Have Your Favorite Shows Jumped?

Supernatural
In the fickle word of entertainment, it's rare when a television show makes it through its first season. For the lucky shows that do, they risk jumping the shark, Hollywood's term for a show's cringe-worthy decline due to over-the-top or nonsensical plotlines. Has your favorite long-running series like "Supernatural" or "The Good Wife" made the leap? Read on to find out...

It's a little baffling that the CW's sci-fi show is bringing in some of its best ratings yet in its ninth season. It's mind-boggling to realize that after nearly 200 episodes, "Supernatural" is s...

(If you haven't seen last week's episode, stop reading now - or if you must continue, you can read our review for the major reveal. Your choice there.) Setting aside the fact that we still get choked up thinking about what happened, we now have to turn our eyes to another, very important question: how, exactly, are you supposed to follow that up?

It's a question that plagues every writer who drops a major bombshell. Actually doing the deed - whether it's killing a ch...

'The Good Wife' Review: 'We, The Juries'

The Good Wife
Now that The Good Wife has gotten plenty of mileage out of its personal drama, it's time to throw some professional scandal back into the mix.

Last week's episode ended with Eli finding out that an anonymous source sent the press video that insinuates Peter may have become Governor of Illinois through some less than ethical means. (You have to feel for Eli. He's just moved past worrying that Peter slept with his ethics consultant, and now this happens.) Eli brings this development to Peter and Marilyn, and the latter immediately starts an investigation. At the center of it is fixer Jim Moo...

'The Good Wife' Scores At People's Choice Awards

The Good Wife
Let's hope the Golden Globes take note: CBS's top-shelf drama The Good Wife won twice at Wednesday night's People's Choice Awards, hauling in more hardware for one of the best shows on television.

Star Julianna Margulies accepted the trophy for Favorite Network TV Drama, which The Good Wife scored over Chicago Fire, Grey's Anatomy, Nashville and Parenthood.

Margulies was nominated for Favorite Dramatic TV Actress, but lost that category to Castle star Stana Katic.

2013 Emmys Worst Dressed: Heidi Klum's Neck Brace Dress, Lena Dunham's Floral Disaster, More

Heidi Klum
One of the reasons people watch the Emmy Awards (besides cheering on their favorite shows) is to see the fashion. And although we like to get a glimpse of the stars walk the red carpet in their glamorous gowns, we really love to see their fashion missteps.

"Project Runway" host and "America's Got Talent" judge Heidi Klum usually has a keen eye for fashion. But her red Versace gown didn't quite work on Sunday night.

There is such a thing as too many sequins, and the neck brace-like top of her dress looked odd. She resembled a showgirl more than a supermodel.

'Good Wife' Star Julianna Margulies Heads To Trial Over Fight With Former Management Team

August 22nd, 2013 4:49pm EDT
The Good Wife
Julianna Margulies is heading to trial in Los Angeles next year over a legal battle with her former management team.

D/F Management claim they are owed $420,000 in back payments for their alleged involvement in landing the actress roles on CBS show "The Good Wife" and as a spokesmodel for cosmetics brand L'Oreal.

The firm's lawyers are also seeking more money after "The Good Wife" was sold into syndication.

The agents represented Margulies from 2009 until 2011, and the actress filed a lawsuit in October claiming her ex-manager Steve Dontanville did not give her a written document of his ...

Jaimie Alexander of "The Last Stand" (above) was one of the few celebs who showed some skin on the red carpet in a low-cut black Marc Bouwer gown. Most opted for more conservative ensembles in black, navy blue, and other neutrals.

The red carpet was full of bright colors at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards last night, but yellow was the most popular. "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen, winner of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, looked oustanding in a strapless canary yellow gown.

"Homeland" winner Claire Danes, who is several months pregnant, also opted for a strapless yellow dress that was (obviously) more loose fitting than Julie's.

"Game Change" winner Julianne Moore picked a more conservative yellow gown with long sleeves, a higher neckline and a billowing skirt.

Actress Julianna Margulies has defended her hit show The Good Wife's controversial oral sex scene, insisting it was a bold move by drama co-creator Michelle King.

The former ER star's character Alicia Florrick was pleasured in a bathroom by her cheating spouse, portrayed by Chris Noth, during an episode which debuted in 2010 - and the sexy clinch immediately became a water cooler topic among fans.

Margulies admits she was initially concerned about how she'd play a woman in the throes of sexual ecstasy, but now she's proud of the scene.

The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

First up - Gwyneth Paltrow. Two pieces equal double trouble for Gwenny. Her hair and make-up look flawless and her body is amazing, but the black lace midriff-baring Gucci gown pushed the envelop (and not in a good way.)

Next - Julianna Margulies. The white Armani Prive with the space age bustier looks like something even Judy Jetson wouldn't want in her closet.

This week, Warner Home Video brought you the fifteenth and final season of NBC's long-running medical drama ER in a twenty-two episode, five-disc set. Here's my review.

The Show

As I talked about in my previous review of the fourteenth season set, ER began to show its age in its later seasons. Season fifteen is helped by the return of many familiar faces (really, what final run would it be if the series didn't try to bring some beloved characters back?) but it's clear that at this point, it's time for the series to end. The plots occasionally stretch a little too far, with one episo...

Another television season has come and gone with the usual blitzkrieg of shocking deaths, double-crosses, surprise pregnancies, and aggravating cliffhangers. It was a varied batch of season finales: some were amazing; others were lackluster; and a few finales left me counting the jumping sharks. I can’t watch every finale, but here’s a sampling of the awesomely good and the appallingly bad.
