THE GOOD FIGHT
February 19, 2017  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Strap yourself in, because this particular Sunday is one overcrowded, overachieving night of television. It begins with a new CBS drama series that, after this first taste, moves exclusively to the network’s streaming sister site, CBS All Access. The good news is that it’s a spinoff sequel of The Good Wife, starring Christine Baranski and other returning faces and new regulars, and it’s excellent (she’s seen here, with guest stars Bernadette Peters and Paul Guilfoyle). The bad news is that it’s excellent, which means there’s one more TV provider you have to decide whether or not to let into your house, TV set and budget. You can watch the premiere episode on CBS to decide for yourself – but you also can get one week of CBS All Access for free on a trial basis, so you may as well try it there, where you can see and hear everything in its notably unedited version. For full reviews, refer to my report on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and, here on TVWW, reviews from Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes and David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower.
