Lois and Clark. Felicity and Ben. Sydney and Vaughn. It is a sad fact, but I've been an avid TV "shipper" pretty much since I learned how to wield the remote control. That includes childhood favorites and also my current "adult" mainstays. So as an avid Good Wife viewer from Day One, I have always naturally been Team Will (Josh Charles), or "Willicia" if you will, 100 percent. He's loved Alicia (Julianne Margulies) for 15 years!

Sure, it (partially) explained what became of the Dawson men after their Season 2 sail-away. But to leave Walt fatherless and in doing so rob the series of its second barely-used African American character (Mr. Eko, we barely knew ye) was a questionable move. This country now has its first for-real African-...
