I just completed a long-delayed binge of CBS All Access’ The Good Fight, season three, and even though it has been with us since March, and the time for a rave review has long since passed, I’m here to report that it is one of the boldest, most uncompromising dramas about contemporary issues that I have ever seen. There have been many over the decades but I cannot recall one that tackled so many urgent topics in so thorough a manner, using well-established characters the audience has been conditioned to care about to examine the good, the bad and the ugly of modern life. By season’s end even the most ardent fans may never look at any of them the same way again. The show has done this without ever losing sight of the mission of any good television drama – to entertain even as it informs or provokes.
