Well, the first look at Half of a Yellow Sun, based on the acclaimed novel by celebrated Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has arrived. Actually, the first look at the adaptation of Adichie’s prize-winning second novel has arrived during the interview with Jon Snow, Channel 4 News, focusing primarily on her new novel, Americanah, which will land on Stateside shores on May 14th, 2013. Featuring Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor with Biyi Bandele directing, a 50-second clip suggests a pretty polished production and the epic qualities of the story bode well for the adaptation.

Timed to coincide with the forthcoming release of "Americanah," the third novel from heavy-hitting Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the first look at the adaptation of her prize-winning second novel "Half of a Yellow Sun" has arrived, and a handsome fellow it is too. Featuring Thandie Newton and a bearded and dreamy-as-ever Chiwetel Ejiofor, the story follows a couple whose romance takes place against the background of the Nigeria-Biafra conflict. It's directed by first-timer Biyi Bandele, who may not have directed a film before, but comes with serious pedigree as a playwright, novelist and theatre director and is considered (along with Adichie) one of Nigeria's most important writers. Cinematographer John de Borman ("An Education," "The Full Monty") adds further credibility along with a supporting class that includes Anika Noni Rose ("The Princess and the Frog"), Genevieve Nnaji, John Boyega ("Attack the »

This week in the first Good Wife of 2013, we had some highs and some not-so-highs. There are never really any lows on this show, but let’s be honest; there are Alicia-and-Kalinda-hanging-out-in-a-hotel moments, and then there are not-Alicia-and-Kalinda-hanging-out-in-a-hotel moments.
We also saw the return of some notable secondary characters: Michael J. Fox is back, in a big way, as competing lawyer Louis Canning, who we learn also weirdly has a really sweet and hot wife, and Anika Noni Rose as Wendy Scott-Carr, enemy of pretty much everyone, but right now, Eli. Which in turn, ends up being pretty much everyone. Way to go, Eli!
If you’re ready for some good times, there’s also a small child with West Nile Virus and an old man dying of cancer. Wheeee!
So let’s go ahead and jump into this bowl full of cheeriness. »
Going into last night's episode of The Good Wife, we knew one fabulous thing: Nick was gone. For good. He wouldn't be returning with either his school bully snarl or vulgar ice cream parlor antics. He was gone. Phew. Done. Thank God, right?
Well, yes. Except Nick's absence was also the only fabulous thing about last night's episode. In "Boom De Ya Da," Alicia reacquainted with an old nemesis, Diane Lockhart glared at Nathan Lane in over six ways, and Kalinda appeared for a quick minute to show us she was Nick-free Kalinda. Otherwise, the episode was a dull, almost nondescript regurgitation of the firm's familiar woes and Eli's familiar grimaces. I never want to feel sick of Eli's maniacal responses and pointy face. And here I am, mirroring his frown in a sad update of the Harpo-and-Lucy act. Noooooo.
Nonetheless, here are some provocative moments worth revisiting. Let's add 'em up. »
CBS will ring in the new year on Sunday with a new episode of The Good Wife Season 4.
An especially dramatic episode of The Good Wife Season 4, we should say, based on the official CBS trailer for "Boom De Ya Da." It teases the removal of Will and Diane as the head of Lockhart/Gardner, as well as the return of Michael J. Fox as Louis Canning and Anika Noni Rose as Wendy Scott-Carr.
All that, and the video doesn't even give us a glimpse at T.R. Knight in the role of a rival campaign manager for Eli.
Watch now and prepare for the return of arguably the best drama on network television:
