The Good Wife, Episode 12: Painkiller-Show Gets Better & Better ****

I certainly hope that "The Good Wife" receives the attention that it
deserves on Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.
In this episode, Mrs. Florrick's mother-in-law suffers a stroke and the
part-time help that she has hired to watch her children,is not exactly
the type of person she has shown to be.
As if this isn't enough, Mrs. F. takes on a case where the a 17 year
old student dies of an overdose. As always, the ending is not what you
would expect, and as in the tradition of the show, is quite good. Watch
out for mothers with crocodile tears.
Christine Baranski is so good in her role as one of the partners in the
law firm. She still has that cold veneer when she delivers her lines.
That facade is so perfect.
Naturally, we all want Chris Noth to be released from prison, but that
would take away from his part. His successor is really the devil in
disguise as he is constantly up to mayhem to keep Noth incarcerated.
