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

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.

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.'

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.

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

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