The Good Wife off to a Good Start!

The Good Wife, CBS Tuesdays, is off to a good start. ER's Julianna Margulies, whose last role in a series, Canterbury's Law~never got off the ground, takes a chance with another lawyer role in this season's political/courtroom drama.

Margulies stars as Alicia Florrick, humiliated wife of Chicago prosecutor Peter Florrick, Mr. Big~John Preston~the ever so fabulous and still in style, Chris Noth, who has just landed himself in jail under a cloud of political and sexual scandals. In order to support her two children, Alicia returns to the workforce as a defense attorney in a prestigious law firm. Josh Charles, Matt Czuchry (Gilmore Girls) and Christine Baranski round of this cast.

I wasn't surprised equally as much as I was surprised to see Tony and Ridley Scott on the credits.

The show takes place in Chicago, but as far as I know is shot right here in Los Angeles, so keep your eye out for palm trees, CA plates, and skinny pizza. ;0)

I can recommend this to anyone who likes a good scandal and a courtroom drama.

  1. I plan on coming back in 5 weeks or so and re-reviewing. I think it has a lot of potential, but will have to see how strong the legs are.
