“The Good Wife” touches on Mohammed topic

Last Tuesday’s “The Good Wife” plot revolved around a lawsuit filed by the wife of a newspaper publisher who was killed after running a cartoon depicting the Prophet Mohammed. The cartoon was never fully shown – only sections of the cartoon.

In a plot line on Tuesday’s episode of “The Good Wife,” the show’s law firm deals with a suit brought by the widow of a newspaper editor who was killed by a bomb after he published an editorial cartoon showing the Prophet Muhammad being searched by airport security officers. In scenes like the one above, the editorial cartoon is depicted only in small portions, obscured by shadows or pieces of paper, and never revealed in its entirety.

Given the production schedules of filmed series like “The Good Wife,” it is unlikely that “Boom” could have been produced in response to the “South Park” stir. CBS declined to comment.

You can watch the entire episode online.
