Tv Season Info

The first season of "Good Behavior" introduces audiences to Letty Raines (Michelle Dockery), a druggie, thief and con artist who gets out of jail on good behavior. Letty resolves to turn her life around and be a good mother to her son Jacob (Nyles Julian Steele) upon getting out of prison. Despite her best intentions, she gets caught in the violent schemes of contract killer Javier Pereira (Juan Diego Botto). The deeper she gets involved with Javier, the harder it gets for Letty to walk the straight and narrow.

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.

    An absolutely stunning and original show. I can’t compliment Chad Hodge & his amazing team enough. Also, the acting in this is stellar. Michelle Dockery is magnificent and teamed with Juan Diego Botto, they are electric. So many pulse pounding mints and twists and turns. The dark, quiet moments are mesmerizing and the chemistry between these two is incredible.

    So far one of the best tv show I have seen. The story line and the acting was incredible. My friend actually asked me to watch it a year ago and I finally started it last week ( I’m already done). Really hope and wish for a season 3 to see that amazing chemistry between Juan Diego Botto and Michelle Dockery.

    Excellent, intriguing series. Who knew Lady Mary could become Lettie?? You know how well written and acted a series is when you end up rooting for the anti-heroes!

    Not sure how this show doesn't have a rating in the high 90s. The acting is superb and the writing is excellent. Every character is so complex and no one is all good or all bad, which is what makes this show amazing. This show is so good at making you feel for people and rooting for someone one minute and hating them the next. It's excellent at showing you why it's hard to hate someone when you know their story. Great with empathy, rich with story, beautiful cinematography, everything is just amazing. Highly underrated and I'm just shocked I don't hear more about this show.

    Michelle is on target with her beauty and tough life issues along side her sexy Argentinian accomplice.
  • Dec 23, 2017
    One of the best and most underrated tv shows ever. There’s action, drama, thriller/romance and so much humour in it. It has a both dark and light atmosphere in it. The whole premise of the show is both fun and sexy, every episode completely unpredictable.
