CSI and Law & Order: Criminal Intent episodes. We tried Burn Notice and Bones, but they didn't make the cut. I can't watch CSI:New York, CSI:Miami or Law & Order: SVU (lead actor roles are too macho). The original Law & Order spends too much time in the courtroom arguing bizarre points of law for my taste.
Daring daughter turned us on to The Good Wife and we are enjoying it enough to dig up the old episodes on the internet. The Good Wife has a lot of good things going for it:
- it is well done,
- it has an attractive, serious woman as the lead
- it has Chris Noth, a former lead on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, as the iffy husband
I am pretty sure corruption has been around as long as there has been something that was worth corrupting, i.e. forever. The show's story line sounds like it is making progress against the bad guys, and I imagine the current villain will get his come-uppance in the season finale, but corruption is eternal, so next year we'll have a new villain and the cycle will continue.
Update February 2017 replaced missing picture.
