The Good Wife
I very much enjoyed the second season when I discovered it last year, and so happily indulged in a few episodes from season one yesterday (my regular Sunday TV-show, 'Boardwalk Empire' having been scandalously cancelled for an election debate I never even considered watching).
As per usual, the first season appears to have been yet better than the second.
The courtroom drama / detective plots were here allowed more space than the characters' private lives. A common enough phenomenon; with time, scriptwriters and audience alike tend to become increasingly attached to the characters as they evolve, and they take precedence on the stories.
This is good TV!
