"You don't give James Bond a girlfriend." That's how THE GOOD WIFE co-creator and co-showrunner Robert King defines what went wrong with the introduction of fan favorite Kalinda's (Archie Panjabi) estranged husband, Nick (Marc Warren).

"We're trying to get Dallas for more than one as we are trying to get Stockard for more than one," Robert King tells TVGuide.com. "You never know what you're going to get when you throw people together but after the first day of dailies, we said, 'OK, let's try to book him and her for the future.'"

PARENTHOOD Breaks Our Hearts Real Good
It’s always been a good show, but it’s had issues that kept it shy of greatness: a lot of Braverman storylines to juggle, characters getting lost in the shuffle or relegated to comic relief, and a tendency to be emotionally manipulative. Right now, though, PARENTHOOD is the best it’s ever been. It’s mastered its tone, its fantastic cast is getting well-used, and it’s jerking tears (and laughs) honestly.
