Sarah Lawrence grad Julianna Margulies is back on regular TV in the new CBS drama, The Good Wife, which premieres tonight at 10 p.m.
Her show wins the prize for the season’s timeliest premise: Margulies plays Alicia Florrick, who stands by her husband (Chris Noth) as he resigns as Illinois State’s Attorney amidst a sex and corruption scandal.
Can anyone say Silda Spitzer? Elizabeth Edwards? Jenny Sanford?
The series follows the typical legal-case-of-the-week format, but what makes the show a standout is Alicia’s emotional baggage.
Will she end up divorcing her cheating hubby? Can she make it as a cutthroat lawyer after 15 years away from the courtroom?
