Which Team Are You On?

I only recently got into watching The Good Wife on the CBS Television Network, after a number of my girlfriends started talking about how good it was getting.  Now in its fifth season, I had a lot of catching up to do if I wanted to stay up to speed on this popular drama.  So, while my husband was watching his shows that I could never get into, I found myself borrowing DVDs from friends, and slowly, but surely catching up all the missed seasons of The Good Wife.  

After watching the pilot episode, I wondered why I had never tuned in to watch this drama, as it was really good.  Usually it takes me a few episodes to see if I like a new show, but I was hooked after seeing the pilot episode and bits and pieces of season 4 episodes as I waited for complete season DVD sets to watch from friends.  :-)  While I can't have a viewing party every week with my girlfriends, I am making an exception this upcoming  Sunday, as this episode is one worth having fans of the show around to talk with during commercial breaks.  In the past we have done 3-way calling during commercial breaks and after the show to talk about the tension mounting as Alicia plots to leave Lockhart Gardner to start a new firm.  But, now that Alicia and Cary's plans to leave the firm are exposed, they will have to battle it out to retain clients.  

What I love most about this successful drama is how Margulies' character, Alicia Florrick, is portrayed as a strong female character. While her husband is imprisoned for a sex and corruption scandal, she must take care of her children financially, and returns back to work as a litigator.  Not only will she have to prove herself in the courtroom, but she will also have to prove it to clients she hopes to keep once she jumps ship and starts her own firm.  I love Margulies on ER, and always hoped she would land on another successful television series.  And, that she has, in the lead role, none the less. :-)

Everything will come to a head on Sunday, when Alicia will have to scurry, putting out fires, saving her reputation, and doing whatever else she needs to do to leave and start a new firm.  My girlfriends and I have been eagerly awaiting this episode, and thankfully we will not have to watch to see what Alicia does much longer, as it will all unravel before our eyes on Sunday, October 27th (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, in the highly anticipated episode, "Hitting the Fan."  Will you be tuning in?   This is one episode not to be missed, and worth trying to watch at the time of airing, as you don't want to read spoilers and hear friends talk about it the next day before you get to watch it. 


Tune in this Sunday at 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT on the CBS Television Network for the highly anticipated episode yet, “Hitting The Fan” – Alicia and Cary’s plans to depart Lockhart/Gardner are suddenly exposed and a desperate battle to retain clients ensues.
