THE GOOD FIGHT hit very close to home with the trials and tribulations of Eli Gold (Alan Cummings). Hearing the “Brown Shirts” scream their filthy protests about Jews was harsh and realistic.  

Everything surrounding this show is chaotic. The law firm, the partners, and the violent protests on the streets feel authentic and make me feel frantic at times. I want the same treatment Diane (Christine Baranski) is having. It seems to be working in a hazy, dreamlike fashion. The writers are getting so many things right about our upside-down world. Despite the daily frenzy, I sincerely hope this series ends on a hopeful chord. 

THE GOOD FIGHT shared the father/daughter relationship between Eli and Marissa (Sarah Steele). It was poignant and touching. When those two looked into each other’s eyes, the viewers felt the love, even though their motto is often, “I do for you, and you do for me.” 

“If we stop fighting the good fight, who will stand up for our country?”  Truer words were never spoken. And THE GOOD FIGHT goes on for every one of us to battle each day.

It is available to stream on PARAMOUNT.
