Excuse me, why is nobody talking about The Good Fight?

It literally just got renewed for a fourth season (!!!) and you probably didn't even know it was on. The fact that the stars of this killer show are not absolutely drowning in EMMY and BAFTA awards is, quite frankly, a travesty. It is one of the most underrated shows on our small screens - and it's just the hit of feminist bravado you need in your life right now.

Trust me, you just found your next binge-watch. It's technically a spin-off from hit show The Good Wife, but it completely stands on its own. It follows the lives and careers of stratospherically iconic lawyers Diane Lockhart (played by Mamma Mia's Christine Baranski) and Maia Rindell (Game of ThronesRose Leslie, AKA Mrs Kit Harrington).

Basically, Maia's father is at the centre of a hectic financial scam that brings Diane out of retirement. Together, along with several other incorrigible, smart women, they take on everything from fake news to the #MeToo movement. They fight for what's right, in offensively good outfits. They exchange stupidly great banter, in terrific shoes. They are brave, brash, funny and unforgettable. They are fully formed, complicated, dynamic female characters - which, let's face it, is still something of a novelty.
