The Good Wife
The sophomore sensation continues to surprise and delight fans, and tonight's episode, the last original of 2010, promises more of the same. Alicia races against the clock to secure a stay of execution for a death-row inmate who is scheduled to die in nine hours. It's all set in motion when Alicia receives a cryptic message from a courthouse clerk concerning the condemned man's appeal. In more personal matters, Alicia, who recently learned of Will's phone call in which he professed his love for her, but which was deleted by Eli before she heard it, asks Will if they can talk about their relationship. Sounds like a good setup for 2011. — Tim Holland
