Has anyone seen that TV show? I usually avoid shows that have any sort of infidelity in them. I think most TV shows portray the BS as the person that needs to change, and it really just makes me angry. My IC recommended The Good Wife to me about 6 months ago, and I just ignored it. She told me that it reminded her of me, and that she thought I would like it.

I just started watching it last week, and I absolutely love it. It's about a strong female who finds out on the news that her DA husband was cheating on her with prostitutes. He goes to jail, and she's left with having to raise her kids on her own. She goes back to work as an attorney, and I guess I relate to her in that sense since I'm an attorney. I'm only on like episode 5 so far, but it portrays her as a really good person who didn't deserve what happened. It's also very accurate in showing how triggers affect her, and it shows how she has to balance the affair stuff with her job as an attorney. I feel like I'm watching myself, and I really enjoy the show.

That sucks. Well, I'll continue watching it until that point I guess.

Oh, nevermind...I thought you were doing roll call.

I saw it a few times, didn't care for it.

I began watching The Good Wife the night CBS aired the first episode. My now-xh was knee-deep in his affair at the time. As the episodes progressed, I watched. As my xh's affair progressed, I was living it. I'm surprised I can still look forward to each episode due to the inclusion of infidelity but the show is so very well written, there are so many other facets of each episode that the infidelity is not so in-your-face as on other shows that I cannot watch. I think it was about episode 3 of House of Cards that I had to stop watching because it was just too close to home with the cheating. Enjoy The Good Wife; 'Alicia Florrick' is one hell of a character.

It's being shown in syndication on The Hallmark Channel. With all the blatant sex and sexuality in that show, I find myself wondering why they edit out every curseword in "Frasier" (???) Makes absolutely no sense to me wy they feel the need to take out the word ass, and even totally omit the episode where Niles thinks he's getting high on reefer, but they can show that show in its entirety.

Givers need to set limits because takers never do.

I guess I haven't gotten to the bad parts of it yet. I haven't seen any sex or sexuality, and I tend to avoid shows like that. Anyway, was just curious what others thought.

What's your source, Lg? In the US, we're on year 5, I think, so the first episodes are old memories for watchers.

I watch for the politics. W hates it because of the soft-core porn aspects.

You got Downton Abbey several months before we did....
