Critic Reviews for Good Girls Revolt Season 1

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (24)

Everyone deserves what they're worth. And Good Girls Revolt reminds us that sometimes, sometimes you have to demand it.

May 9, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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.

Oct 28, 2016 | Full Review…

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.

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

Good Girls gets the journalism part almost laughably wrong, but as an ensemble drama with a good cast, high production values, and much else, even a crusty editor might observe that, 'This story has legs.'

Top Critic

Good Girls Revolt, in encouraging audiences to reconsider their own lives in the context of women who lived five decades ago, often seems to be counseling the same thing.

Oct 31, 2016 | Full Review…

The pilot does a good job of using big cultural events as a lens through which to view impending cultural changes.

Top Critic

Inspiring in its historical victory, Good Girls Revolt feels especially timely as we brace ourselves for modern battles against gender inequality.

Aug 8, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Good Girls Revolt picks up right where Don Draper left off, providing plenty of nostalgia for viewers addicted to period dramas.

May 9, 2019 | Full Review…

[Good Girls Revolt] is at its best when it lets its talented actors dig into their characters' frustrations, hopes, dreams, and all the other emotions that come with being a tenacious reporter on the edge of breaking a story.

May 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Good Girls Revolt shows that the recognition and voicing of shared oppression is a difficult but liberating process.

If you want to see more hard-nosed reporters at work but found Spotlight to be too bleak, start streaming.

Though the dialogue can result in a few eye rolls, you'll learn something.

    Really good to watch wish it had lasted more than one season.

    It is clever and gives an idea of America at the end of the sixties that is not polarized in only one way.
