There are moments in season three of The Good Fight where you might find yourself thinking that you’ve stumbled on a completely different show. Even though fans are used to this show being “really wacky and broad”, creators Robert and Michelle King have found new and wonderful ways to surprise viewers from the first episode.
Nick and Fiona, co-hosts of The Playlist podcast, are definitely fans, finding The Good Fight “tremendously entertaining” and displaying “wit and self-awareness” via its true-to-life characters.
Having so much material to work with – namely, the real-life drama of the US political climate and the #MeToo movement – writers have given lawyer Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranksi) and the whole cast plenty of good fights and momentous challenges to get stuck into this season.
Fiona’s tip is to watch out for the stand-out performance of Audra McDonald as Liz Reddick-Lawrence.
