The now-imminent end of CBS's critically adored and modestly rated The Good Wife raises again one of TV's most awkward questions: Can a good series run too long? The answer is yes.

Super Bowl Stunner: Goodbye to 'The Good Wife'

And so it is that the passing of The Good Wife is a loss for CBS in particular and broadcast television in general, and very likely the end of an era. I have to say the end came fast and furious.

Perhaps on some level there is truth to some facets of these stereotypical roles that are pounded into the minds of the American TV viewer. It is not, however, the image of the justice system I see in my day-to-day work as a public defender.

Unlike many of the industries that force their customers and workers into arbitration, the for-profit college industry is fueled almost entirely by taxpayer money -- some $30 billion per year, for many companies amounting to around 90 percent of their revenue.

Now you may think it a fool's errand to try to pair anything with Netflix's upcoming Pee-Wee's Big Holiday. Fortunately, the flick and the wine industry share someone in common: Tara Buck.

I decided that I wanted to hand out my very own Emmy Awards today and thanks to a slight typographical error when first writing this piece I decided they would be called The Memy Awards -- my picks for performances and series that warranted being singled out for recognition.

There is nothing worse to watch than Alicia Florrick sobbing by herself in her apartment. All around, this episode was about how absurd and lonely life is. The show itself has come full circle, as Alicia has to give up her State's Attorney position in front of the press.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love 'The Good Wife'

Like most religious awakenings, it didn't happen overnight. I'd heard of this new show The Good Wife, seen ads on bus stops and during commercial breaks for trivial shows like 60 Minutes. It looked silly, something unnecessary in my already busy spiritual TV life.

'The Good Wife' Recap: Scandal in 'Loser Edit'

So much scandal these days! This week opened with a very "Good Wife"-y montage of Alicia being interviewed by an evil journalist who wants to take her down. The email leak breaks and we see that it won't be an easy ride for Saint Alicia. Especially because there are some steamy emails between her and Will in the dump.

We have a winner! Alicia wins the race for state's attorney but is losing everywhere else. She tries to reach out to Prady, but he won't work with her. Finn, despite being adorable and buying her a video game, has a new girlfriend. Her campaign manager is leaving, having done a job well-done. And Peter? He is very, very low in my book.

One thing was missing: mucho Kalinda. She was there, but not there. This is her last season, so I guess its good for them to taper her off instead of, well, shooting her in a courtroom like last season.

The editing last week was something else. And while she works out her career, an eviction suit coming from Canning, and some leftover parenting issues, the best part is when she remembers Will. Am I the only person who thought it was a perfect way to show how heartsick she still is? And then the music was perfect.

But can we get some action? I hate to admit this, but do you think it's possible that, despite the good writing and everything else, that this show's real purpose was in watching Will and Alicia maneuver around each other?
