This Amazon series stands firmly on its own, compensating for somewhat underdeveloped characters with fascinating takes on journalism and feminism during those years.

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

It's not that Good Girls Revolt gets too strident, but it ends up having no stakes and almost no drama because it's easy to hate the men who were idiots either in the workplace or in the home.

I wanted to love this show. But it's so on the nose that watching it practically gives you a bloody nose from being repeatedly punched on the nose. Every scene is the same: the women do bold things, the men squash them... These good girls deserve better.

Even with the questionable choices, this well-intentioned and female-positive (women directed six of the 10 episodes) series is thoughtful entertainment.

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.

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

[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.

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.

Good Girls Revolt doesn't bother or care to note that things were never actually this easy. But it's happy to ask us to reminisce alongside it just the same.

Give GGR some time. You might wrinkle your nose at first. But if you stick with the show, it'll grow on you.

Amazon's new show has some room for improvement, especially with regard to race and inclusivity, but it has a lot of potential and it's plenty enjoyable, especially in this dismal political climate.

Good Girls Revolt is a textbook example of how not to adapt an excellent book for television.
October 28, 2016
You'll sink your teeth into this show for the sounds of typewriters and news moving over the wires as well as the fashion and loveable characters established through group dynamics and individual focus.
October 28, 2016
An empowering, optimistic show that's worth a watch but isn't doing anything marvelous.

If Mad Men were a band, Good Girls Revolt would be the tribute act.
October 28, 2016
Though admirable in intention, it lacks subtlety and is predictable in almost every way.

October 28, 2016
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.
October 27, 2016
Perhaps the biggest issues with Good Girls Revolt are its tentativeness and slow pacing, both of which prevent it from being a truly exciting viewing experience.
October 27, 2016
It creates a sense of place, where the clothes and rooms feel lived in and the problems feel real, rather than just heightened examples of the decade's issues.
