Social Media and Its Discontents

Series 1 - Episode 6 Social Media and Its Discontents



Our old pal gazillionaire Neil Gross, owner of the ChumHum search engine, is back and he wants Diane’s new firm to act for him as he tries to control the torrents of hateful postings on his various websites.

It’s a bit of a damp episode by The Good Fight standards with a not particularly absorbing central story. Though it’s notable and even shocking for The Good Wife fans who are still, surely, learning to get used to the levels of bad language in this polished spin-off. Nothing – and I mean nothing – is off limits in this episode. Even lovely Lucca swears. No, Lucca, no!

Meanwhile Maia thinks her dad might be up to no good.


The firm land Chumhum mogul Neil Gross as a client, and must work out a way to combat hate speech on his social media site. Elspeth helps Maya work out if her dad is spying on her.
