The legal drama picks up one year after the series finale of The Good Wife and centers on Maia, a young lawyer who becomes involved in a financial scam that wipes out the savings of her mentor and godmother, Diane Lockhart.
The show premiered in 2017 on CBS’s new streaming service. It was a smash hit, being picked up for an additional season, and in general it was loved by everyone here. We just wanted to see more Amy.
Overall, the show does as good a job as its predecessor with regards to the law and weird cases. They have more leeway for darker subjects, like harassment and suicide, being on streaming media. No longer constrained by network standards, they have freedom. They chose to use not so much in sexual ways, but in depth of subject matter.
That said, there was a lack of parity with the sex. Luca has sex. But Amy and Maia? Not so much. It’s another case of fading to the window for the lesbians, which is a bit annoying. Hopefully they’ll address it in season two.
