This review is from: The Good Wife - Complete Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
The Good Wife is easily one of the best shows to appear on TV in years( well I just finished the season 1 boxset; hope Season 2 is just as good; even if it's only half as good it would be still 5 stars).I didn't have high hope for this when it first started mainly because of the gimmicky premise which could have worn off, an example is the Damien Lewis show Life which fell apart after a few episodes(maybe the writers strike was to partly blame but boy was the episodes weak). The Good Wife doesn't suffer from the problems that show did with better writing to make use of the excellent cast.Gary Cole makes an apperance or two as a lovable Republican(yes, believe it or not he's not intent on plotting evil). While Alan Cumming is awesome as Eli Gold, pretty much owning every single scene he is in. One Heck of a show; a five star wonder. Must be seen.
