Why The Good Wife might be annoying
The title is a pun.
The show was inspired by the infamous political sex scandals involving Eliot Spitzer, John Edwards and Mark Sanford.
The San Francisco Chronicle criticized it for having 'too many close-up shots of knowing glances and attagirl Alicia moments of empowerment that you saw coming 20 minutes prior.'
Alan Cumming's character on the show was inspired by Rahm Emanuel.
The guy who played Mr. Big on 'Sex and the City' plays Alicia's husband.
Why The Good Wife might not be annoying
The show has received critical praise.
The 'Los Angeles Times' praised the show comparing Margulies's tough female character to cable shows with strong female characters such as Glenn Close on 'Damages' or Holly Hunter on 'Saving Grace.'
It garnered strong ratings in its first season due to its airtime immediately after ratings juggernaut 'NCIS.'
It brought back Julianna Margulies into the spotlight after her successful stint on 'ER.'
Margulies won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at both the Golden Globe and SAG Awards.
Archie Panjabi won an Emmy for her supporting role.
