When CBS announced The Good Wife, an upcoming show about a politician's wife shamed by her husband's public sex scandal, there's no way the network could have predicted that cheating governor Mark Sanford would give the show an awesome tie-in to current events. Or maybe it could have — politicians seem to be having affairs at a rapid pace these days!
Refreshingly, the philandering politician (played by Chris Noth) is not the star of the show's plot. Rather, it's his scorned wife Alicia, who decides to put her long-deserted career as a lawyer back on track by taking a job as a junior associate at a prestigious law firm. From there, I'm guessing the plot takes a turn toward Law and Order.
