THE GOOD FIGHT
April 30, 2020  | By David Bianculli

CBS All Access, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
Last week, I wrote about the scheduled episode, and its revelations about the sinister, conspiratorial “Memo 618.” But that episode didn’t appear. There was no conspiracy – just a one-week production delay, caused by stay-at-home cautions that had everyone sequestered in different places across the country. And while Robert and Michelle King and their post-production staff were figuring out how to complete their shows from a distance, they practiced by producing an explanatory video – one that showed how many people were involved, and how difficult the remote technology was to manage. Then that same video showed just how quick their learning curve was, by following with the cast and crew joining for a remote singalong performance of “You Are My Sunshine.” Considering that The Good Fight cast includes such Broadway musical powerhouses as Audra McDonald and Christine Baranski, it’s definitely worth watching. And today, that “Memo 618” episode arrives – but honestly, I’d settle for a new song video. And when and how, I ask the Kings, will you manage to do an all-out musical episode? Please? Meanwhile, consider the show’s music video treat as, I guess, a Good Fight song.
