I haven't been to bed so it's actually kind of still Thursday. Sort of.

Oh well.

Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)

This one was remarkably easy to pick -- The Good Wife. It's without a doubt my favorite new show, and I'll tell you why: AWESOME WOMEN. Seriously... the women in this show are SO good, from Alicia to Kalinda (I want to be Kalinda when I grow up!) to Diane to even Peter's mother, who is kind of secretly a bad ass (and Alan Cumming's fantastic character is slightly afraid of her, as he should be!). The writing is so nuanced (for the most part, I'm ignoring you, stupid "cliffhanger," and the recent look at Kalinda's personal life), and it's weird how I have no idea what I want to happen -- do I want her to reconcile with Peter? Maybe. Or get with Will? No idea. Or keep her job as a result of using her connections? Kind of.

This show brings new meaning to shades of gray. It's suspenseful without being gimmicky, and intriguing on so many levels -- how does an older woman reentering the workforce cope? What is a good wife and mother? How much do you have to sacrifice of yourself for your family and your job? Can anyone balance everything? And everything in the professional life seems to be based on making connections, on finding a name for yourself... so what do you do when your name is kind of infamous due to your husband's crimes?

When in doubt, go to the bar and down some tequila, a la Kalinda.
