The Good Wife is one of my absolute favorite shows on television right now. I love the way they are able to shed the procedural mold and focus on the cases and the characters. I also think the show chooses cases that are interesting and culturally relevant. I recently had the chance to talk to Josh Charles (who plays the super great Will Gardner) at an event for Human Rights First, where he was presenting the Sydney Lumet Award to show creators Robert and Michelle King for the show’s coverage of various human rights issues. We talked about what it means to present the Lumet award, how human rights factors into The Good Wife, and of course, Will and Alicia (my favorite relationship on the show).
