The Good Fight: The Gang Deals with Alternate Reality
April 9, 2020 2:15 PM - Season 4, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Season four premiere.

Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) finds herself living in an alternate reality where Donald Trump was never elected and Hillary Clinton is the current President of the United States. While Diane's liberal self is overjoyed, she soon realizes how a different outcome of the 2016 election might have unexpected consequences.

That was a trip and I am SO glad this show is back.

The John Cameron Mitchell parts were incredibly unnerving, so they hit the mark on that.

I’m so sad the run is cut short (8 instead of 10) because coronavirus.

Yes, fake!Milo singing "This wall is my wall" in a clear reference to "Tomorrow belongs to me" was a great note. The "they have an overall deal at Netflix" comment was very funny too.

The reversed credits gave me goosebumps. I may be overly invested in this show.

OH THANK GOD KURT IS NOT DEAD. I've been dreading this premiere because I was sure they were writing him out of the show because he had a role in a new series. I know some posters dislike his character but I think the writing is nuanced and it's interesting to watch how Diane and he navigate their differences.

I loved the concept of the episode. Throughout I was trying to remember what recent book I'd read which had a similar feeling, disorienting and then impending doom, I could be The Silent Land (well hell, Graham Joyce is dead I just found out, died before I'd discovered him). I loved this episode and looking at the previews, David Lee! Michael J Fox! Can't wait but I'm so glad it's released weekly and not all at once. I want to savor this show.

Ow! That was so enjoyable. Christine Baranski's acting in this show is sublime. This season has just become available in Australia and, like TWinbrook8, I'm glad it's weekly. Hedonist me needs to ration things this good.

Season 3 is over, thankfully. The resistance storyline was not fun to watch.
