Watch The Good Wife

The Good Wife is a CBS television series which premiered on September, 22 2009, and has had a successful three season run. This show is a legal drama starring Julianna Margulies as a Junior Legal Litigator named Alicia Florrick. In the series, Florrick returned to work after being a stay at home mom for a number of years. The return to work was necessary because her husband was jailed after being involved in a highly public political scandal. With her husband behind bars, she needed to work to provide for her family. She now is faced with the challenge of managing both children, home and work with the ongoing scandal involving her husband. She must also work very hard to prove herself in the courtroom after being absent from the profession for many years. This show has many gripping story lines and interesting plots and as a result has developed a good following.

Margulies does a good job in the leading role of the Good Wife. You may remember Margulies in her long-running role as Nurse Hathaway on the successful medical drama E.R. which ended in 2000. After E.R., Margulies starred in a few made for television movies, had a recurring role in the 2006 season of The Sopranos and played opposite Samuel L. Jackson in the 2006 movie Snakes on a Plane, before returning to television with the Good Wife in 2009. This show also stars Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi, Graham Philips, Makenzie Vega Alan Cummins, Josh Charles and Christine Baranski. This is an award winning series. The series itself and many of its cast members have been nominated for and won numerous awards including Emmy awards for best actress for Margulies in 2011 and best supporting actress for Panjab in 2010. The series as a whole has also been nominated for many Emmy awards and won a Peabody award in 2011.
