Critic Reviews for Good Behavior Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15)

The twisty plot has echoes of 24 and Homeland. Sure, it grows increasingly preposterous, but if you like Swagger, you'll want to go along for the ride.

Good Behavior... has plenty of potential, most of all thanks to Dockery.

The setup is bleak, but the show is not. Yes, it involves drugs, murder, and intense emotional pain, but there's something almost screwball about it: Letty and Javier are just two crazy kids who are weirdly perfect for each other.

Held up by a problematic central relationship, Good Behavior provides Michelle Dockery ample opportunity to break free from Downton Abbey, but little else.

Dockery's rather amazing transformation is the principal selling point -- for now.

There is no denying there is good chemistry between the two central characters...

Darlings, this one's simply not getting enough attention, as far as we're concerned.

A woman is drawn to dark choices in quality crime drama.

Nov 15, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Well-made and with an intriguing premise, Good Behavior might either develop into something worth following, or settle into a basic-cable-drama groove that's just decent enough to keep people tuning in.

Nov 14, 2016 | Full Review…

Good Behavior is a dark, turbulent story and fits in with TNT's new scripted direction as ably as it finds success in busting Dockery out of her Victorian drag.

Audience Reviews for Good Behavior: Season 1

Michelle Dockery stars in the TNT gritty crime drama Good Behavior. Based on a book series, Season 1 follows professional con artist and drug addict Letty Raines as she gets involved with a contract killer while also working to get back custody of her son. Dockery does an amazing job as Letty, making her an incredibly interesting and compelling character. Yet, her disregard for the consequences of her thievery and the people she hurts with her cons makes it hard to root for her. Also, the show is very sexually explicit and uses coarse language (so much so that TNT airs censored cuts). Still, it's willingness to explore damaged characters and the morally grey is what makes Season 1 of Good Behavior so enticing.
