  • "The Good Wife" - Cary The Enigma

    … Is Cary immature? Is he so smitten with Kalinda that he can't focus on anything else. Or is just an unusual kind of person? On this latest episode of "The Good Wife," the compelling parts of the plot line were all about Cary.

  • Bill Cosby aka Dad - Lawyer John P. Schmitt Not Commenting

    … How those caught in a scandal handle themselves on the legal and media fronts is a very businesslike undertaking. Risk and probable gain/loss are carefully calculated.

    … Ed note: Apparently some reader in the comments complained that a post about “this week’s HTGAWM” discussed the events of “this week’s HTGAWM.” Rather than trust the 99.9 percent of you to figure that out, we’ll just warn you that this post will, in fact, discuss this week’s HTGAWM.

  • Nina and Alicia - Grabber v. Charmer

    … contrasting models of female striving, presented so brilliantly, are why we can't get enough of either television show. The shows' shrewd creators made them legal dramas (soap operas), which is a genre which has thrived since "Perry Mason." Here is a deconstruction of the space in New York Magazine.

  • The Thrill Of Motion Practice On How To Get Away With Murder

    … The legal farce is over. On a TV show about lawyers and would-be lawyers you’d think it might not take until week 7 to get to that point, but well you’d be wrong about that. Week 7 is when HTGAWM finally drops the farcical convention of a “case of the week” — yes, the idea that Annalise, no matter how amazing of an attorney she’s supposed…

  • Mayhem: Ahem, Metaphorically Speaking

    … Metaphors are a good choice for trademarks. A metaphor typically requires some thought, imagination or perception to understand the connection between the mark and what’s for sale. Remember what a floating feather might suggest metaphorically? Yes, a good night’s sleep. So, the symbol works well as a distinctive non-verbal trademark…
