Critic Reviews for Good Girls Revolt: Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (19)

Good Girls Revolt telegraphs its big points too loudly - conversations always come to a political, cultural, or social head - but it nonetheless offers low-key, idea-driven entertainment.

Good Girls Revolt is lively fun, telling an important story via young women who could be characters in a Sex and the City-ish dramedy.

October 27, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Top Critic
