What it meant in a chaotic world

“The Good Fight” is dead. Long live “The Good Fight.” 

Paramount+’s daring political drama, its very first original back when the streaming service was called CBS All Access, released its final episode Thursday, wrapping up six tumultuous years of American history – and six seasons that tried to grapple with it. 

Plenty of TV shows are set in the present, but not one – not even CBS’s “The Good Wife,” from which “Fight” was spunred off – understood what it feels like to live in modern times as “Fight” does. For a series that relies so much on magical realism, daring plot twists, talky scenes and guest stars snatched from Broadway stages, the true accomplishment of “Fight” could be boiled down simply (to use a 2022 slang term) to “vibes.” 

Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart as Audra McDonald as Liz Reddick in the series finale of "The Good Fight."

What started as a show about the second act of Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) – an accomplished lawyer in her 60s and ready to retire, who had to start over after losing her life savings – turned into the most daring, dangerous and sometimes even deranged show on television. It might have offended huge swaths of the public, if only Paramount+ had a bigger viewership.
