I love a good legal drama. This especially because the leading lady is so brilliant!

If you are old and liked Perry Mason this is for you. Is the femenine counterpart of Perry Mason the outstanding lawyer who could solve anything on a case. This woman is terrific, love her. If I needed a lawyer I would chose her if she existed.

The show is witty, well researched and features one of the strongest female leads in Tv series I have seen. Personally, I would not have stood with a husband who cheats on me so i cannot really identify with the main character, but I think her character evelopment into a strong don't f+++ with me attorney is interesting and her relationships with different characters on teh show (Diane, Cary, Eli...) are intriguing. Diane''s character development also offers an interesting perspective on the democrat/republican divide in the business world. I think coming into the 7th season, the show is loosing momentum, after the death of one of the main characters a few seasons rior and the developments of season 6.

Fancy lawyers and dirty politics come around to give a big hit....it might be late for u to join in on this show considering 7 seasons but its never too late!! Those of you who happen to have a feminist side or if u want to see a lady kick some ass in the court tune in to the good wife!

I like the show but I think that they are grasping at straws to come up with new material. It's getting a little ridiculous now.

I can't get enough of it. It's smart, engaging and beautifully filmed. Season 6 though was a tad not up to par in my opinion.

I finally gave this show a try! I knew it was really good as per all the positive reviews, but didn't really have time for it when it first started and I let it go. Finally, this summer, I felt like looking it up on Netflix! Just went through the first 2 seasons on the last 2 weeks! It's so good! My boyfriend even likes it and said ''I find that as I grow older, I start to like adult shows'' and he's right. We're both into it and here is why :

1) Yes its a drama, but its not overdramatic à la Grey's Anatomy
2) I like Alicia's character. she a driven lead female with focus on work and her kids. It's inspiring for us women, we want to have it all too and we can!
3) Jeffrey Dean Morgan .... I can't wait to get there (ok that's just me that's excited for that)
4) All in all I'm enjoying a good law oriented show!
