Why aren't You Watching it?: The Good Wife

Yesterday I asked why Rush did not do well, today its time to talk about televisions hidden gem of the last 4 plus seasons, The Good Wife.  The premise started off with Julianna Margulies playing Alicia Florrick a wronged wife of a Chicago States attroney, played by Chris Noth.  After her husband goes to jail; she goes back to her work as a lawyer herself.

Throughout these 4 plus years the shows quality has remained steadier than even most cable series, only wavering at the beginning of last season.  Beyond Margulies the ensemble is the best on television with Mrgulies, Josh Charles, Christine Baranski, Archi Panjabi, Alan Cumming, Matt Czuchry, and Chris Noth.  The shows guest stars are used better than any hospital drama could ever imagine, they fit within the plot, they are assets to the shows forward motion, and I will not even bother naming them because its a veritable whose who of amazing talent.

Last nights episode entitled "Hitting the Fan" proved that this is the best drama on television.  So go back to the beginning, do not be fooled because the show is on CBS, but this show is fluffy or light weight.  The creators of this show are Robert and Michelle King, they still write and direct the show, maintaining the quality, and keeping their vision on task.  They are brilliant.  The quality of this show is something other shows wish they could achieve.  I had a non viewer watch last nights episode with me, and he said he was going to start watching, and you should too!
