'The Good Wife' recap: "Good, She Banged a Nice Bin Laden"
What it spins, though: In order to negotiate the "thicket" of our gross relationship with China and their even grosser relationship with Taiwan -- and thus protect their gross client -- Diane gets Eli to call his ex-wife Vanessa (Parker Posey), who works for the State department. In return, she asks Eli to vet her for a state senatorship. Kalinda does her Kalinda stuff for him, and uncovers the fact that -- during their marriage, of course -- Parker slept with a lesser Bin Laden. So yeah, her run is out. Mostly it's about how fun you find it to watch Alan Cumming and Parker Posey act at each other -- depending entirely on if you like them and/or it is still the mid-'90s, which I do, and I guess it still is -- so it worked. I may hate Generation X but I reserve the right to absolutely love those two ladies, and I do.
(Although bonus awfulness points for absolutely the creepiest image of Alan Cumming's leprechaun semen and a Bin Laden cousin's regular semen mixing together in the psychodrama bain-marie of Parker Posey's very talented carnival vagina, which: Deal with that for one second. Somebody wrote that down on a piece of paper and then Alan Cumming said it and then Parker Posey on camera tried to explain to him -- to Alan Cumming, okay, who is like the Ron Jeremy of the enchanted sex forest, Alan Cumming who can't even introduce a PBS Mystery! without making you feel like you're being willingly prostituted to twinkling gnomes, that merry wanderer of the night Alan Cumming -- how semen works and how, like, vaginas work. And we watched this happen on TV.)
