Can we just talk about…..Julianna Margulies AMAZING Good Wife scenes

Films, TV series

So The Good Wife has had a lot of press recently with the release of Series 7 as well as the announcement of the new series, The Good Fight, where we get a chance to see more of Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) being totally kick-ass, sassy without being under 21… a massive high five to the entire female population.”Yes I’m still going to be as fabulous and fierce as I was when I needed I.D- if not better”. Snaps

Alicia Florrick- The Good Wife

But in the wake of the awards season I feel Julianna Margulies (who plays Alicia Florrick) deserves recognition other than talking about her famously expensive wig.

(FYI she had a number of $10,000 wigs made for the series as it would be quicker to get her screen ready compared to trying to tame her unruly mane- and I guess it was worth it because it blew everyones’ mind that Alicia’s hair wasn’t her own).

But can we just talk about Episode 13: Judged, 25 mins in.

To anyone who has doubted their purpose in the world or who found themselves asking “what am I doing with my life” this will be like holding up a metaphorical mirror. You will be in no doubt that Alicia Florrick is real and her heart and soul are broken.

“I hurt, and I just want it to be over- I want it to end”

Her acting is so flawless that you forget it is a performance- a trait I feel many great actors and actresses miss out on recognition for because you don’t walk away going wow what a great performance by X. In that moment there is no essence of the real person, all you see is the character they portray (probably why Leo DiCaprio doesn’t have a billion OSCARS- we forgot he was acting- I mean Jack Dawson did go down with the Titanic right?).

Either way you should watch The Good Wife- it’s awesome throughout with really thought provoking issues and cases. Good job Julianna- you kick butt!

Napoleon Solo IS ACTUALLY Sterling Archer!

Films, General Ramblings, TV series

So if you haven’t already seen the film “The man from U.N.C.L.E” go and watch it IMMEDIATELY. Not only does it feature the amazing Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill and what other reason to watch a film, but it is also brilliantly entertaining if you need another “non-girly” reason to see it. As the film developed I couldn’t help but feel I had seen this Napoleon Solo before….

WAIT I HAVE!!!!

In the form none other than animated series ARCHER!
Sterling Malory Archer, better known simply as Archer, is the world’s deadliest spy and the main protagonist of the series, summed up by one of his famous quotes…

Other: “you’re wearing silk socks?!”

Archer: “you’re not?!!!!” 😵

So let’s look at the similarities, both characters have the same persona: suave, stylish and serial womanisers, but not only that, they have nearly exactly the same physical appearance.

Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill): 6″1, blue eyes, black hair.

Sterling Archer: 6″2, blue eyes, black hair.

SAME HAIRLINE AND PARTING

SAME JAWLINE, CHEEKBONES AND BUM CHIN

SAME RIDGE IN THE NOSE

SAME MOUTH AND NOSE SHAPE

SAME OUTFITS!!!!!!

You get the idea, it’s official, Napoleon Solo in the real life embodiment of Sterling ArcherArcher:Solo image image
