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.

What a solid almost ending to this season. I'm always a huge fan of contemplative Alicia (can we say "Mind's Eye?")

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.

Am I the only person thoroughly enjoying the sort of meta editing techniques like Alicia watching CBS News on mute and then turning up the volume when they're talking about her?

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'

Karen Fratti | Posted 06.12.2015 | Entertainment
Karen Fratti

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.

'Good Wife' Recap: All of Alicia's Men in 'Red Meat'

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.

'Good Wife' Recap: No More Saint Alicia in 'Open Source'

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.

'Good Wife' Recap: All the Best Songs From 'Mind's Eye'

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?

This return episode was necessary to set the stage and get the rest of the season moving, but other than that, it was a little slow.

Stop Labeling Women As Trophies

Now I applaud the emergence of high-powered couples, and George and Amal send a great message by being together. But how about we do all women a service, and not label them as any kind of accessory to men; no trophies to win or trinkets to collect. That is so passé.

Reed Hastings Is an Optimist

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has predicted the death of broadcasting. That may come as a relief to many of today's broadcast executives who will be well into retirement by then. But if he is giving TV stations another 16 years, his outlook is downright rosy.

The Good Wife Recap: No More Saint Alicia in "The Trial"

Alicia's finally owning her campaign and starting to accept the fact that she wants this. We see her stand up to Peter and his philandering ways. It's only been five years and she finally has a reason, and the guts, to tell him to shut up and get a hold of himself.
