Summary: Alicia Florrick is the wife of a former state's attorney for Cook County. He has been imprisoned after a sex and corruption scandal. Alicia must deal with the public humiliation. She must also fend for her two children. After years of being a housewife and mother, she returns to work as a litigator at the law firm Stern, Lockhart & Gardner. She must now prove herself in the courtroom.
The Good Wife embraces change with all the enthusiasm of a January gym bunny, but also manages to sustain it like a seasoned marathon runner. Over the last seven years, we’ve watched Julianna Margulies navigate Alicia Florrick’s ever changing moods: Saint Alicia, the wronged woman; Alicia the mother raising her kids on her own; Alicia the junior lawyer; the romantic having an office fling; the sharp legal brain running her own firm; the grieving lover drowning her heartbreak in buckets of white wine … This is what long-form TV drama can do so well when it’s in the hands of writers like Michelle and Robert King who really care about their characters (and about drama and, you know, just making entertaining TV). They convince us that there’s real depth, that Alicia is a character with enough contradictions, emotional range and surprise to bring us back for more than 100 episodes.
