I just watched a new show that I am following: The Good Wife. >>> Love it!
As if The Good Wife‘s regular cast isn’t (to use the word from the title) “Good” enough!!! They brought in one of my very favorite actresses this past week: Martha Plimpton. I have always thought that she would have been the absolutely best actress to portray Stephanie Plum, the main sleuthing character of the wildly successful Janet Evanovich mystery book series.
The premise of the show is something we have witnessed all too often… An elected official is “found out” by the media, and as he apologizes for cheating (that’s a rather mild term for what this husband did) on his wife and children, the wife stands with him at the podium, with a Mona Lisa look on her face… You get the drift, no doubt… (***I have always thought that a cheating spouse not only cheats on their partner, but also on the children. The time he/she spends with his/her partner in the cheat, is time that he/she could have spent with his/her children… Now, should I get off of my shoebox?!?)
Julianna Margulies is excellent as the wife, Chris Noth is able to actually make me (almost!!!) like the cheating husband, I love Christine Barnaski in anything she is in, and the list of actors goes on and on.
If you haven’t already seen an episode of The Good Wife… It’s on CBS on Tuesday nights. Try it… You just might like it!
