Television: Sunday-Night Scorecard

The Good Wife: I enjoyed Stockard Channing as Alicia’s mother, but the central case in this episode, involving a gay-male couple and the Defense of Marriage Act, was much too unsophisticated for a series of this quality. There are plenty of possible DOMA cases in the pipeline toward the Supreme Court: the idea that this case was the only potential one was just silly. Grade: C+. Liz and Dick: Not much juice in this raspberry. But it was worth the slog to see a recreated “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” starring Lindsay Lohan (left) as La Liz and Grant Bowler (right) as La Dick. Grade: C-. Homeland: One of the most complicated episodes of the second season. “Two Hats” helped us understand why David Estes was so intent on selecting Peter Quinn to run the covert operation, and also what the CIA plans on doing with Brody once the mission is complete and Abu Nazir is captured or killed. And while Carrie has spent most of her time this season as an asset to the CIA, she could soon find herself as a liability given her strong feelings towards Brody. Grade: A-.
