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

Good Girls is fun.

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

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

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.

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

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

"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.

Audience Reviews for Good Girls: Season 1

    This is absolutely one of the BEST shows on regular TV! The cast is PERFECT! I live for Sunday nights...SOOOO happy it's renewed!!

    It's not The Handmaids tale level of quality but its hilarious. The contrivances are what are most annoying, that, and a bit too much reliance on male stereotypes, as well as a bad habit of resolving absolute massive plot turns with really simple and unrealistic solutions. Also, I find the idea that the single mother character is scape goated as the problem child - rather stereotypical.

    it is a very good show. It is very interesting but Why the Hell did they kill RIO. I am still mad about that.......

    I don't get it. Ruby is a suspect, her husband Stan is a cop and nobody suspects foul play? Annie works at the grocery store that gets robbed and the trail goes cold despite the cops seeing Rio around Beth's place a little into the show? I've never seen cops portrayed this dumb in the history of watching crime-related American TV shows! :-\

    Fun! And a great way to escape the day, into the drama of these three women who represent many women in society today!

    Christina Hendricks performance makes it rather magnetic

    Good Girls is my favorite new comedy of 2018, my 2nd favorite new tv show of 2018, and one of my favorite tv shows of all time. Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman, and Retta give seriously stupendous and hilarious performances and have great chemistry together. Manny Montana, Reno Wilson, Matthew Lillard, Zach Gilford, and Allison Tolman give great supporting performances and June Squibb gives a great guest performance. The writing and screenplay are terrific and hilarious. The story and plot are fantastic and very unique. An A+ show and one of my top 5 favorite comedy shows of all time

    Stumbled upon the first season on Netflix and quickly caught up. Like many shows, it has a slow start to find it's footing, but once it does I loved every episode more and more. The characters are flawed, but not to the point of unlikable (save for a few slime balls). The storyline, while not perfect, is fictional while remaining believable. Christina Hendrick's leads the ensemble with a steel demeanor, supported by comedically gifted Retta and Mae Whitman. Manny Montana, the oddly charming Rio, brings some mystery to the cast, and as said, charm too. While it's only just begun, hopefully the show continues to keep the characters likably flawed and the storyline fresh, without completely exiting the realm of reality. Loving the second season so far!

    Dynamite show, addictive, terrific acting. I don't normally care for "chick" shows but this show is SOOOO entertaining and relatable.
