Good TVeets shows a contentious reaction to the Good Wife's series finale last night. The Good Wife's showrunners explained what they were going for in a video, a letter, an interview, and another interview.
Ryan McGee appreciated the boldness of the episode, but thought it was awful. Maureen Ryan was left with mixed emotions by the final scene. Daniel Fienberg also had problems with it, while Willa Paskin thought it was a powerful and fitting ending to the series. Sam Adams laments that Good Wife's departure may signal the end of traditional prime-time network drama, and Emily Nussbaum says goodbye to the series. Alan Sepinwall says the end was disappointingly ambiguous.
