Good writing, talented actors, and a string of very interesting court cases.By H0LLIE (198 reviews) from UK , 24 Jul 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]The Good Wife stars Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, the smart, attractive wife of Chicago's state attorney, Peter Florrick (Chris Noth). A man who has just been jailed following a rather public sex/corruption scandal. But not being the type of woman to fall apart, she decides to go back to work as a litigator. The series then follows Alicia as she attempts to regain her credibility as a lawyer, and does her best to hold her family together following her husbands string of torrid affairs. And of course, this being a legal drama each new episode offeres up an intriguing new case.
This type of show isn't exactly in short supply, but The Good Wife stands apart from the crowd with good writing, talented actors, and a string of very interesting court cases. Though more a fan of action than drama I found that this program managed to hold my full attention, I came to like most of the main characters and found that I could easily sympathise with their situations. And it's always nice to see the Brittish getting credible work in the states, Archie Panjabi and Alan Cumming both act their parts well, though unfortunately they both perform with assumed American accents.
So over all this is a television series I would recommend to all those who enjoy this type of thing, and even those who are not a particular fan of the legal drama genre may find that with it's adictive story line, The Good Wife may convert them.

Slow burning yet sharp!By Iluv (3 reviews) , 04 Nov 2013A slow burning and yet sharp drama. The characters are very well cast and are developing like a fine wine. The court room dramas keep you on your toes and having a dvd helps to replay some of the scenes so you are totally in the loop. Cant wait for season 2
As visual and intellectual entertainment it is peerless.By a customer , 23 Oct 2013I would say this is the best written TV to date. The plots are incredibly exciting and unfold in an elegant and unexpected way. The acting is flawless. All the characters are interesting and enigmatic. It is laugh out loud funny, cheer at the top of your voice exciting and desperately poignant. Every scene is important and gripping. There really is not anything else like it.
Absolutely riveting!By a customer , 24 Sep 2013Riverting! Watched all four in a row! Good characters - got in to the characters very quickly. But even better plotlines and suspense. Eagerly awaiting next disc.
