Chanel Four started broadcasting a new American soap called ‘The Good Wife’ which was recently in the news because it’s leading lady, Julianna Margulies (of ER fame) won a Golden Globe for her role. I just finished watching the first episode and now it’s in my ‘must watch weekly’ diary.
The main character, Alicia Florrick is the wife of the disgraced and imprisoned for corruption state attorney Peter (played by Chris Noth, aka Big in SATC), who, in addition, was also caught with his pants down with a hooker. In order to support her two kids Alicia goes back to work as a lawyer, having been away from the workplace for 13 years. As far as I am concerned it’s the drama of both the heart and the mind and I am darn riveted. Often we, women, are portrait either as weak or as bitches, forgetting that middle ground exists too, as a woman can be tough & kind, strong & thoughtful.
My applause to Ridley & Tony Scott, who are executive producers of this drama and …enjoy the show!
