I finally decided to check out The Good Wife after reaching the tipping point of positive mentions from people whose tastes I respect. So far, my main thoughts are that a) surely this is the new big femslash fandom, right? and b) the lead actors do a fine job, but cable tv dramas have spoiled me and raised the bar a couple of notches higher than what Julianna Margulies et al. are delivering. Still, it's a solid show, and intriguing enough to keep me watching.

But it did make me miss Damages, which I'd given up on a third of the way into the second season. So I've picked up where I'd left off for my fix of Glenn Close as Patty Hewes, discovering in the process that the third season begins tomorrow. Needless to say, this means I haven't had time to watch the Caprica pilot yet, nor have I seen any reaction posts on my flist so far. This calls for a poll:
