There is virtually nothing to watch on Monday nights. Until now. And as much as I am sick of law shows, or lawyers, (with the exception of Boston Legal and my long time love affair with Law & Order) I am in LOVE with this show.
I have been a fan of Julianna Margulies, since her days on NYPD Blue, long before ER.

About The Show:
“An attorney on the rise, she puts her career on the line to take on risky and unpopular cases, even when they take a toll on her personal life. Elizabeth and her law professor husband, MATT FUREY (Aidan Quinn), haunted by the unsolved disappearance of their young son, struggle to distance themselves from the tragedy and put their relationship back together. But those goals become elusive whenever
The premier of the show was brilliant. This past Monday night I was reduced to tears. Actual tears at the end. (Yes I am a big baby and I take things to heart, as if the things on Television are actually happening.)
I don’t want to ruin the show or give anything away, but I can say as a MOTHER watching Julianna Margulies play out some of my WORST fears on screen is a powerful experience.
I love her unconventional approach to law, I love her attitude, I love her gusto, and she breaks my heart.
