The Good Wife is one of my favorite shows on TV, my wife and I watch this religiously, and if we can't watch it at the scheduled broadcasting time, we record it and watch it later. It is on of the shows we both enjoy, and like to watch together, comment the events, and try to predict future episodes.

The Good Wife make a great gift for anyone who watched or who didn't watch the live broadcasting. It is one of the shows you can always watch it one more time. The actors are outstanding, the characters are greatly written, and made me to get attached to every one of them. The plot is masterly created, keeping us entertained, and wanting for more.

My favorite characters are Alicia Florick, played by Julianna Margulies, and Kalinda Sharma, played by Archie Panjabi.

Alicia is a stay at home mother, who finds herself in the position to dust off her law degree, and find a job, when Peter, her husband goes to jail, implicated in a corruption and sex scandal. She starts as litigator at a law firm, proving to be more than the former state attorney's wife. Will Gardner, one of the firm's founders, hires her, partly because he knows she is very capable professionally, and partly hoping to rekindle a former relationship. Alicia, betrayed by her husband, courted by Will, and flattered by her new role, is torn between her faithfulness and her attraction to Will.

Kalinda, played by the actress Archie Panjabi, is probably the most complex character in the movie, with personal values that sometimes surprise us, is the firm's investigator. Her life experience, her mysterious past, and her sexual inclinations, make her one of the most interesting characters in the series. Her abilities as an investigator, make her an indispensable employee at the firm, and an important instrument in winning cases.

Interesting thing is that previously, Julianna Margulies has played in another series, Canterbury's Law, where she is a defense attorney. The show was canceled by Fox later.

Other characters in the show are Peter Florrick played by Chris Noth, Will Gardner played by Josh Charles, Diane Lockhart played by Christine Baranski, and Cary Agos played by Matt Czuchry. Another interesting character is Eli Gold, played by Alan Cumming. Eli is Peter Florick's campaign manager, and he is the mastermind of Peter's political career.
