Lot more than that which is why it was routinely rated among the top three shows on TV the last several years.

I was really disappointed by the finale. It left you hanging. I hate endings like that. Boo!!

I haven't watched "The Good Wife" over the years but watched a bit of this last season and learned after Googling around that the ending was purposeful. In the first (or one of the first) episode, she slaps her husband because of what she's become; in the last episode she is slapped by the Christine Baranski character, signifying that she has become what she once despised. I think maybe the purpose of leaving so much dangling was so that viewers would have some hope that Alicia will reinvent herself yet again.

Great show. The wife is an attorney like yourself and she loved it. I was hopeful that one of the cable channels would pick it up... no such luck. That's a shame.
