The Good Fight's creators, Robert and Michelle King, promised they would be peppering plenty of fan-favorite characters from The Good Wife into their new series, and they have not disappointed! The premiere episode of the series was full of familiar faces, and that trend is set to continue throughout the show.

Watch the clip above to see the first appearance of the eccentric Judge Charles Abernathy (Denis O'Hare), reprising his role from The Good Wife.

Fans will recall Abernathy as the spirited, bleeding-heart magistrate with a penchant for activism—and, if his appearance on The Good Fight is any indication, he hasn't changed a bit.

Here, the judge makes the most of his prescription sunglasses, which don't exactly do him any favors when it comes to reading the court monitor. See the results in the video clip above.
