The Good Wife, choose teams and watch the fireworks Oct 27 - review

We all make choices in our lives. Do you put career first or family?  Do you stay in a position of comfort or dive into the unknown?  Which choice presents the best options?  These age old questions are at the heart of the new plots of the CBS show, The Good Wife. 

If you are unfamiliar with the show, The Good Wife is the story of Alicia Florrick, a wife, mother and prestigious lawyer. She reinvented her life and career following her husband's sex and political corruption scandal. Emboldened with confidence, Alicia forges ahead with her career. While offered a partnership in the law firm of Lockhart/Gardner, Alicia decides to venture out on her own and start a new firm. With her colleague, Cary Agos, Alicia must find balance between family, career and public life role.

Difficult choices lead to good drama. On the October 27 episode the showdown between team Lockhart/Gardner versus team Florrick/Agos comes to a boiling point. With tension hitting an all time high, which team do you support?

Having been a lawyer for part of my life, I love legal dramas. Legal shows share a glimpse into the drama that many law firms encounter on a daily basis. Which associates put the firm first?  How important is it to become partner?  Would life be better outside of the firm.

When it comes to the big October 27 showdown, I am on team Florrick/Agos. Personally, I think that a woman is more than her job. Life is about balance. I think that venturing out on a new adventure shows confidence and a desire to achieve. The choice sets a good example to her children. Starting a firm based on her beliefs and terms is a sign of woman empowerment. I vote Team Florrick/Agos.

Which team do you support?  Turn into the Good Wife on CBS Sunday, October 27 at 9 pm EST (8 pm CST) to watch the climax of battle.
