I am among the watchers of all seven seasons of “The Good Wife
” who believe that its CBS All Access web spin-off, ‘The Good Fight
,’ has grown even better than the original. As much as I enjoyed Julianna Margulies

The character’s travails and triumphs often overshadowed that of Christine Baranski
’s Diane Lockhart, a highly regarded legal mind who would become a mentor to her, one who stood up for liberal principles and women’s rights. One of the best storylines that happened to Diane was when she fell for Kurt McVeigh, a firearms expert and conservative Republican
played with manly silver-fox elan by Gary Cole
