The Good Wife

The Good Wife is doing really well here and in the UK. I'm not surprised. There's something very intriguing about it. Strangely, for me, the intriguing portion is not the family drama, which is dull, but the courtroom drama — and I've really come to hate courtroom dramas!

Basically, The Good Wife is a very sophisticated Agatha Christie — nothing is as it seems but it all gets figured out. I suppose part of the appeal is that there is just so little adult drama. I think we're all a little sick of whimsy and cutesy, the knowing voice overs, etc. But, sadly, as my post demonstrates, there isn't very much to talk about. Oh, well.
