Thanks in part to NFL football (otherwise known as the master of the universe for CBS and Fox during the fall), Sunday night’s new installment of “The Good Wife” season 4 will be pushed back to a start time of 9:30 p.m. Eastern time. While this may be enough to make you spontaneously burst into tears (or at least groan, if the former is a little too dramatic), there is still a pretty good reason to either tune in at this unusual time or to set your DVR.
For one, this episode marks the directorial debut of Josh Charles, and you know that he is going to be pulling out all of the stops to impress beyond just his Emmy-nominated work in front of the camera. As if this wasn’t enough, prepare to “ooh” and “ah” over the return of such guest stars as Nathan Lane, Maura Tierney, and Kristin Chenoweth, who is coming back seemingly to wrap up the work she did during the season premiere prior to her on-set injury.
Sunday night’s episode is the beginning of an arc for another guest star in Amanda Peet, who will be playing an officer in the military accusing a civilian contractor of trying to assault her while serving overseas in Afghanistan. Just due to the international setting of the incident alone, this is going to be an interesting chess match in court to watch, and it may also be one of Peet’s meatier roles in years.
Just in case all of this guest-star goodness made you forget that “The Good Wife” season 4 still has some stellar series regulars, know this: there will be at least one shocker pertaining to Peter’s election this week that will have you calling up your friends the moment the end credits roll. You’ve been warned.
