The Good Fight (CBS All Access, Sundays) may be a spin-off from The Good Wife but its first two episodes are as good as anything from that show’s run.
The stunning two-hour premiere opens with characters and familiar, seamlessly integrating the two into a new environment – an environment without the Florricks, but with Diane Lockhart moving from the penthouse to the outhouse and back in a way that feels natural and unforced, and surrounds her with a new cast of equals that equals the one she’s moved on from.
The Good Fight has its first trailer… and it’s a doozy!
In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia Rindell, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s preeminent law firms.
The good fight premieres on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8:00 PM, ET on-demand on CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video-on demand and live streaming service. In addition, a special broadcast of the premiere episode will air on the CBS Television Network that same night, Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT. Check out the new trailer after the break.
Into The Woods takes four classic fairy tales – Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel – and looks at what happens after their happily ever after endings. There have been several films in recent memory that have tackled this idea, but when Into The Woods debuted, it was a radical new idea. It’s still the best take on the idea.
When Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s dark Broadway take on fairytales, Into The Woods, was optioned by Disney, there was a lot of fear that it would wind up being Disnified – so much so that Sondheim had to go on record as saying that that just wasn’t so.
Now the first teaser trailer for the film has been released and it looks a couple shades darker than the usual Disney version. Check it out after the jump.
