That's what I thought too.

I just hate seeing otherwise very nice looking women that have kneecaps bigger than their thighs!

No spring chicken? I think she's a spring chicken! She was born in 1966.

By the way, are you all enjoying Stockard Channing who plays her off the wall mother? She's my age.

look, i have no problem with alicia's having a love affair--but pu-leez, NOT with will again! he is no good for her. he and peter are both wrong, bad, toxic for alicia, each in his own way. the affair from before with alicia and will felt real, almost destined, in a way--wrong, but real. this time, i'm not even feelin' it--it all looks so awkward and fake, like bad acting....the writers need to bring on a new love interest worthy of alicia, for once. how about somebody like george clooney coming on as a guest expert witness or something? hey, he's not my type, but julianna and george, could be REAL together--sparks be flyin' like a dry hot fourth of july...or johnny depp, i'd be all over that....

Or, how about a man with some mileage on him, a la Jackie & Ari. I saw in yesterday's paper that it was Judd Hirsch's birthday -- he's only 79. Mm, he did a cameo on TGW last year, though, didn't he? Ooo. How about John Slattery (Roger on Mad Men)?

I wish they would settle the new firm's problems and go back to the courtroom with some interesting new cases.

I do like off-the-wall Elspeth. She adds a dash of wacky pepper.

Love Elspeth! She's a hoot.

george clooney is plenty 'seasoned'--these days he has more salt than pepper in his well-groomed locks...slattery would be fine. we could have some fun fashioning a list of prospective candidates to be alicia's lover, right? Elspeth has a wonderful spontaneity, an off-beat quality that is positively delightful.

Well, then. How about a little more hot sauce -- Antonio Banderas, perhaps?

Will looks like a constipated weasel. Can't possibly see what Alicia's fascination is with him!

Elspeth is, as others have said, is wacky and lovable and gets that zinger in there while seeming to be clumsy and dumb.

It's still a much better show than so many others out there and I won't miss an episode.
