Good Girls (2018– )
User ReviewsReview this title
This show has it all, told in an an exciting way that keeps you hooked while you laugh and cry.
Hint: I was so caught up in the drama I binged this series in a day, the show should be leisurely enjoyed, a couple of episodes at time, with a good whiskey or bottle of red and some popcorn; Treat yo' self.
The characters in the show are highly likable. They got different personalities so there is something for everyone and it also adds to the comedy. Seeing three vastly different people trying to accomplish a common goal (to get out of debt) is surprisingly hilarious.
I was worried that the plot was going to stick to them having to owe the gang throughout the entire season but it ditches that before your even a quarter way through the season and instead does a multitude of funny adventures to keep you entertained.
The writing is spot on. Good dialogue, nothing seems forced, it is natural.
Overall, this is a very good show.
It is as if some writes or producers make a character unpalatable or just hard to tolerate overtime. Mostly this is a character that does the dumbest things repeatedly and makes the audience smack their forehead. Depending on how into a show you are you could just pause and digest the situation then resume. Some scenes really make you think or question, while others you might relate to. But the decisions that are made make your eye brow really touch your hair line.
I am giving the show a 6 because it was not a bad show all in all but, some scenes and episodes are just mind boggling
This show has both its greatest strength and its greatest weakness in its main characters. Early on, it seems like a worthwhile endevaour to follow the misadventures of these characters, to see what sort of crazy hijinks they get up to, but what plagues them by the of season 2 is the same feeling of staleness that most shows like these struggle with. If characters always get into trouble, then it's neither shocking nor interesting to see how they get out of it, cause you know from the start that they will and that they will inevitably get into more trouble later on.
So this is what I mean by the earlier sentiment. The characters start to feel like paper-cut outs of their earlier selves, where they are put into situations as opposed to naturally growing with the show. Add to this, a frustrating amount of storylines that disappear into nothingness, and you have a show that, while great at times, fails to really deliver on its promise.
