The good wife is an American legal and political drama series which was aired on CBS network and was created by Robert King. The Good wife was particularly loved by all female watchers and the law community of America. The good wife belonged to the completely different genre from the other television shows which are mentioned above. Juliana plays the main lead of Alicia Florrick and the story begins with Alicia’s public humiliation and her husband who is a lawyer cheats on her. Alicia returns back to her work and the twist here is that she is not the typical “the good wife” character. Each episode contains political drama with family intrigue and legal cases.
The show contains a lot of guests during all seven seasons where the guests weave in and out of Alicia’s life just like they would have been in real life. Many shows start to fade after the first or second season, but the good wife had a hold of its viewers till the final episode.
