Wikipedia wrote:The Good Wife is an American television legal and political drama that premiered on CBS on September 22, 2009. The series was created by Robert King and Michelle King. It stars Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles, Christine Baranski, Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry and Alan Cumming, and features Chris Noth in a recurring role.

Where can I watch it?
First four seasons are on Netflix now with the fifth probably on there by January at the latest. The show airs on More 4 in the UK normally from January and airs Sundays in America starting from 21/9.
Tell me more.
Over the last five years The Good Wife has developed one of the best casts on television with recurring roles for Michael J Fox, Nathan Lane, Gary Cole, Stockard Channing, John Noble, Matthew Perry, Carrie Preston, Amanda Peet and pretty much every cast member of The Wire apart from McNulty and Stringer. Seriously count them as they appear.
But the name's awful.
The name is as bad as the show is good.
