The Good Wife Recap: Let's All Drool Over Taye Diggs

Originally posted 09/29/2014 06:00AM

Why Madam Secretary Is Worth Watching

Originally posted 09/21/2014 02:00PM

For the new fall season, CBS has gone and found a plausible sister show to pair with Julianna Margulies's The Good Wife.

Here, too, we have a sophisticated, 40-something actress (Téa Leoni) in a situation (the White House) that teems with smart, powerful adults who would humiliate you and reduce you to tears if you ever met them in real life.

The premiere episode of Madam Secretary, for the time being, suggests that the show is very much the little sister in this scenario – but then again, The Good Wife is the rare show that was letter-perfect even in its pilot.
