Critic Reviews for Good Girls Season 1

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (28)

... the series wobbles from broad comedy to chilling violence to sentimental speeches.

Feb 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Good Girls is fun.

Feb 28, 2018 | Full Review…

For now, the three lead performances are uniformly winning while the pacing is bracingly brisk.

Feb 27, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Strong on homage, weak on originality -- or logic.

Feb 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Good Girls could develop into the show its premise and cast deserve, but it needs to pick a lane and come to terms with its title.

Feb 26, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Regrettably, the show can't live up to what the cast promises.

Feb 26, 2018 | Full Review…

It's such a reliable and adaptable chassis to hang a show on, it's not really any surprise that the makers of Good Girls manage to inject some truly funny material and situations into every episode.

Mar 9, 2020 | Full Review…

There is good chemistry between [the protagonists] and the minutes flow quickly. [Full review in Spanish]

Jun 5, 2019 | Full Review…

"Good Girls" is a serious show about three women on the verge of suffering from a nervous breakdown, and as someone watching at home -- you feel for them, easily. But even with such a serious tone, the show still manages to be laugh-out-loud funny.

Mar 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Regardless of its flaws, Good Girls provides entertaining and complex female protagonists who are neither good nor bad. They are perfectly human.

Mar 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Rather than revel in female Robin Hood types, we get a more rote tale of women from different privileged backgrounds dealing with a life of crime.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Good Girls is not good.

Audience Reviews for Good Girls: Season 1

  • Jun 15, 2021
    Bravo! This show is awesome! It's like a crime show and a hilarious mom show put together. At first I wasn't sure if I'd like it and within the first few episodes I was hooked! It's definitely a must see!

    her hair is dry (main character) the unfunny one. the mom mom. i recommend deep conditioning
  • May 10, 2021
    I love this show but it's so confusing if you miss an episode plus it's impossible to hear what they're saying while music is playing. I'm lost on this episode where the guy is arrested and was let go.
  • Apr 12, 2021
    Loved the entirety of this show.
  • Apr 03, 2021
    Really bad like so terrible
  • Apr 02, 2021
    This was so disappointing
  • Mar 30, 2021
    This is an awesome show; I've been hooked since the first episode. The storyline is smart, dangerous, and fun and the cast is amazing!! I'm not sure why rottentomatoes gave it such low marks, perhaps the critics are made up primarily of men who don't appreciate strong female characters.

    Rating: 8/10. 88/100
  • Mar 12, 2021
    It is a series that catches you from the beginning, it goes straight to the point from the first episode without showing you so many unnecessary plots.
  • Mar 02, 2021
    Breaking bad, but for girls.
