Tread Perilously – ‘The Good Wife: Goliath and David’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: The Good Wife‘s “Goliath and David”

Tread Perilously starts 2022 with Total Request Live 5! Four weeks of Patreon listener requests. And it all begins with The Good Wife episode called “Goliath and David.”

Alicia accepts the case of a culty rock singer whose orchestration in a cover of a rap track gets used by a network show about kids at a musical band camp. The problem: The singer received no credit or residuals for the elements of the cover which were his creation and his manager failed to get the correct rights from the song’s original composer. Will Will use this as a chance to get back at Alicia? Meanwhile, Archie Panjabi tries to learn who fathered Melissa George’s baby.

Erik once again asks the question: “Who’s Melissa George?” Justin immediately recognizes the real ripped-from-the-headlines case that inspired this episode of The Good Wife. He also introduces the concept of “Aaron Sorkin Face.” Erik finds himself a little disappointed in Christine Baranski’s restraint throughout the episode. Matthew Lillard is, once again, the MVP. Echoes of Happy! and I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell abound. Justin appreciates that the judge is Uncle Junior. Erik mistakes the breed of Scooby-Doo. Milkshake ducks appear, and the notion of F. Murray Abraham as a heavy gets shattered.
