I was late to the game on this show - mostly skeptical because I assumed that like many other CBS dramas, the series was serviceable but not essential TV. How wrong was I? The Good Wife - minus a few questionable plotlines (Kalinda's ex-husband) and characters that any series over 3 seasons old likely experiences - is without a doubt one of TV's finest dramas. It is consistently well-written, gripping and relevant; the cases on this show are often ripped from the headlines, Law & Order style, but in a much more subtle way, often offering way more insightful commentary - particularly when the cases pertain to technology. Alicia is also without a doubt one of the - if not THE strongest female character on TV right now.

Update: Feb 2016 - only a few eps left and I am really going to miss this show, Alan Cumming especially, the always great Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Julianna Margulies who's poised, self-contained yet conflicted character has been so intriguing to watch. :/ Everyone involved has been exceptional, let's not forget Michael J. Fox as Louis Canning, sooooo good! If only all tv was this entertaining.

I've not missed one episode. I love this show, deserving of Margulies' depth as an actor. The one with Will, you know the one I mean, was truly out of left field. Love Michael J. Fox and now Jeffery Dean Morgan is joining the cast - any advance screenings for sidereel members????? :D
