Tensions Mount as 'The Good Wife' Starts Season 5


Season 5 of CBS's The Good Wife is starting, and this season is going to be filled with some pretty dramatic, life-changing decisions and choices.

The Good Wife
follows Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), the wife of a scandal-ridden state attorney (Chris Noth) who is exposed for political corruption and a major sex scandal. Since Season 1 began with this simple but brilliant premise, the show has blossomed as it focuses on Alicia's career as a lawyer while her husband rebuilds his political capital.
