No, I’m not talking aout myself. Would my husband call me The Good Wife? Good question. Last night my kids were both gone to an all night end-of-school party at church and my husband was out of town. I was all alone. I can’t tell you how rarely that happens. So rarely that it’s almost never.
My dogs aren’t used to a quiet house, either. Every time a bug would hit one of our four billion windows, the dogs would erupt in barking as if there were someone lurking outside, just waiting for the right moment to break in. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep. So I turned on the television. Luckily we get OnDemand from our cable provider, so I found a show that I’d been meaning to try and hadn’t. After one episode of The Good Wife, I was hooked. I watched nearly the whole season in one gulp. Talk about characterization. Each one of them is interesting and for different reasons, even the secondary characters. But Alicia, the main character, was fascinating to me. She is a strong character and yet she constantly found herself in situations where she had to choose between survival and making the moral choice.
I think I’ll try to find the early episodes on Hulu so I can see how the series started and how her character has grown. Maybe after I take a nap.
