On January 15, TV show The Good Wife will feature an episode called "Bitcoin for dummies" TV.com has the plot blurb: Alicia defends a client charged with protecting the identity of the creator of an illegal currency.
The good news is that Bitcoin will be front and center on one of the most popular entertainment shows in the US. The plot does foreshadow the currency being illegal, which is a clever storytelling device but maybe a prescient one at that. In any event, all news is good news, and a prime time television show is really good news. An entire demographic will be introduced to the name and hopefully the concept of bitcoin in an informal but respected format. It's on CBS. Watch it.
