About a month ago I was flipping around the channels and landed on the Hallmark Movie Channel. During the afternoon, that channel reruns the dramatic TV series ‘The Good Wife’.
I am hopelessly out of date about all the series that run. I don’t know about you youngsters out there, but I can’t keep up with all the media.
Anyhoo, when I discovered the reruns of ‘The Good Wife’ I decided to tune in for a few episodes. On the whole, I liked the strong female presence and I became enamored with Kalinda, the kick ass investigator.
Having read many thrillers, the archetype that is Kalinda is very familiar to me. Stoic, smart and strong- this character can hold her own. She doesn’t let much penetrate her defenses. Kalinda embodies the character type I suppose I wish I were.
I guess you’ve already figured out though, I don’t even come close to the kick ass investigator type. I am a tough motorcycle rider though!
I’ve since stopped watching ‘The Good Wife’. I liked the show, but I just don’t want to invest the emotional energy. I’ve got a webcomic to draw and motorcycles to ride.
Until next toon,
