Fall TV Previews: 'The Good Wife's' Sophomore Season Features Big Choices
The solid freshman season of CBS’s The Good Wife concluded with Alicia Florrick -- after having beaten an unattached twentysomething for the post of junior associate at the law firm where she works -- trying to decide whether she wants to remain by the side of her duplicitous husband who publicly humiliated her by cheating with call girls, and who spent time in prison for corruption but now wants to run for public office again.
She's been maintaining a brave face for their two children, but, behind the scenes, we know that Alicia’s mulling over advances made by her boss Will, a friend from her law school days.
I'm looking forward to the politics/political spouse angles and story arcs about how Peter's campaign will affect his family more than a love triangle between Alicia, Peter and Will. Let's face it, the politics and the betrayed political spouse/Silda Spitzer angle is what makes this show fresh.
The Good Wife’s second season premieres on Sept. 28 at 10 p.m.
