Hi guys, good to return here, huh! We stayed a while Off to enjoy the revelry and we took the opportunity to redecorate the Thunder what a modesty aside, it was beautiful huh! Well, we came back with everything and the Thunder Tips also. This week, we celebrate the week of International Women's Day (March 8), a historic day to literally celebrate and remember women who have done so much for women today and for society as a whole.
And in celebration of this feminine week (and why not say feminist?), Today we are going to show you a series of wonderful beyond where the main character is a woman. And it's not just any woman, my people, it's THE WOMAN! Played by the actress Julianna Margulies (who also signs the executive production of the episodes), Alicia Florrick stars in the court drama The Good Wife, a series that featured an incredible cast and for seven seasons, showed the female strength of Alicia and other women who also star in the series.
Available in Netflix (all seasons), well before the theme “female empowerment” and “feminist” became a recurring theme in TV programs, tabloids, academic studies and journalistic articles, The Good Wife had been following this trend and paved the way for so many other works by quality with the same background. The story begins with a political scandal that has made headlines and major TV shows in Cook County, Chicago. Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) fell out of favor because his extramarital and corruption cases surfaced, tarnishing the family name. Alicia, his wife, had to take charge of her life and provide for her family.
Graduated in Law and without exercising it for thirteen years, Alicia returns to the job market as an associate of an office, the Lockhart / Gardner, whose college friend Will Gardner (Josh Charles) is a partner alongside Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and little by little, it shows that the thirteen years that she lived without exercising the right, only left her better than many lawyers in office.
The series was created by the couple Michelle and Robert King, who also directed, produced and wrote some episodes, and was shown from 2009 to February last year. In Brazil, it is entitled For the Right to Start Over and even though it is not a literal translation, it lives up to what the series presents in its seasons. With each episode, the cases become more difficult, putting even the office in a troubled situation related to debts. But without falling off the jump, literally, Alicia is winning cases for the office and making her name consolidated as a reference within the legal world.
There are also other women who deserve prominence in the series. Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi), a researcher hires from the firm that is reputed to be tough. His character is shrewd, intelligent and very mysterious. Wearing a miniskirt and long leather boots, Kalinda seduces her targets in order to resolve that issue that is missing for the Lockhart / Gardner cause win. Another woman who deserves prominence in the series is Diane Lockhart, one of the owners of the office. Diane is one of those strong, intelligent women who make the classic line. It is by far the ideal profile of a woman that society demands, as she is not married, has no children and is sexually resolved.
Like Kalinda and Diane, other lawyers pass through the series all full of themselves, knowledge and empowerment. This is the case with FBI agent Lana Delaney (Jill Flint), that when it appears on the screen, it gives that pride to the class, you know? There's Alicia's daughter Grace (Makenzie Vega), who is religious, a human rights activist, has an enormous sense of justice and sees in her mother an admiration and inspiration to pursue a legal career. Has Viola Walsh (Rita Wilson), a wonderful lawyer - and somewhat dubious in her ways of advocating her causes, but who deserves all the attention and honors.
The series shows that women have an absurd power of choice and that is one of the causes that thousands of feminist women fight around the world: the rise and gender equality, the desire for professional recognition and equal pay and simply making it clear that women can perform “male functions” as well as men. With the end of the series, viewers were somewhat orphaned because they no longer had the company of Alicia and her entire troupe.
Each season features twenty-two forty-three minute episodes. But the text is so good and so much happens in a single episode, that you don’t feel the seriousness of the Law and every end of the episode, leaves us with that little flea behind the ear to know what will happen in the next episode - that's what we call plot twist.
With so many reasons, you won't miss it, will you? Take advantage of the fact that the last few seasons of the series have been on Netflix for a short time and this is a good sign, it will take a little while for the series to leave the catalog. Oh, and remember: a woman's place is where she wants it - even if it is in a law firm, in a courtroom or even, indoors. Respect women and give them freedom to choose their future.
Long live the woman!
