The Good Wife: New Poster

Tantalizing... confusing.

So, the new poster for The Good Wife came out a few weeks ago, and it simultaneously invites new viewers and completely turns away old viewers. Sure, a sexy, airbrushed Julianna Margulies sounds like a good idea, but it kind of takes away from what Alicia Florrick (Margulies) stands for. All in all, I'm flummoxed.  On one hand, good for her. On the other hand, it seems like a confusing message. Maybe it's post-feminist. Maybe I'm backward-thinking for not recognizing a woman's right to be sexy and powerful. Why is a poster of a scantily clad lady making me think this much. Agh, brain freeze!

What do you think?!
