'The Good Wife' Tackles Legitimate Rape

Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 4, Episode 20 of CBS' "The Good Wife," titled "Rape: A Modern Perspective."

"The Good Wife" took on several hot button issues with "Rape: A Modern Perspective." A lawsuit over rape with social media involvement wasn't the only "ripped from the headlines" aspect -- "The Good Wife" also threw in legitimate rape and had hacker group Anonymous play a key role in the story. It was like the writers looked at what they had done all season and decided they weren't topical enough, so they threw together this episode. Unlike the last few episodes, "Rape: A Modern Perspective" did manage to move several chess pieces around the ongoing story board.
