I am hooked on the Closer, Harry's Law, the Good Wife, Body of Proof and Silent Witness.

All have strong female characters who are intelligent, mostly beautiful and at the top of their game workwise but struggle to keep it balanced with their personal lives.

I think I love these shows for the who-dunnit angle. but I also relate to them and I am proud that there are these role models on our prime-time TV shows.
