The Good Wife

One of our favorite television series is The Good Wife, in which the poker-faced Julianna Margulies, always made up in stark black and grey tones, plays a long-suffering political wife who is, herself, a lawyer. With her unique perception and logic, she solves impossibly difficult cases with the help of Archana Punjabi, a female investigator with few scruples, all the while fending off one of the principals of her law firm, who is in love with her. It’s all very formulaic, but never fails to deliver intrigue, romance, and a steady look into the mind and character of a strong woman. Highly recommend, but not for anyone having marital difficulties themselves.
