Upping the bar

Lately there are a few great shows that have even better writers than even the very best in film. They've slowly drawn out some of the best talent because of the creative freedom the television format can offer. Six Feet Under, Foyle's War, Sopranos, True Blood, Mad Men are like mini feature films without the ten dollar ticket price. You can even watch it online...

I've become hooked on my newest find. I never watched the Julianna Margulies on E.R. but she shines in this role.

The Good Wife
The screenwriters of this production are amazing, and the cast superb... Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles, Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry, Graham Phillips, Makenzie Vega and Christine Baranski. Even the recurring characters such as Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), Eli Gold (Alan Cumming), Daniel Golden (Joe Morton) and Glenn Childs (Titus Welliver) are juicy.
