Critic Reviews for Good Trouble Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (3)

Good Trouble is a strong renovation, at least so far. It feels built to disarm skeptics.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

The women's shabby-chic art deco home setting, the Coterie, is where this show really thrives... It's a lot more fun to sit through than a schmaltzy, half-baked legal plotline.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

But it's not just the characters who have grown up: The format of the show seems to have gone through a maturing of sorts, too.

Jan 9, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

By reflecting the world we live in, Good Trouble has proven to be exactly the type of show we need right now.

Jul 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Good Trouble's filmography and writing are an absolute joy to watch and have truly encompassed everything this generation latches onto

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Good Trouble is sexy where The Fosters was earnest; messy where its predecessor was moral. It's a blast for it.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The series deftly captures what it's like when you're in your early 20s and just starting out, navigating a new career, new living situation, and new relationships. Good Trouble is well worth your trouble.

Jan 16, 2019 | Rating: 8.9/10 | Full Review…

Good Trouble avoids that trap, keeping the show's narrative focused and balanced, even while introducing all these new characters...

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Fosters spinoff is a little racier but sweet and lovable.

Jan 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A well-written, smart, impressive pilot that reeled me in and may (and should) be one of the biggest hits of the winter. I'm sorry for ever having doubted the great minds behind The Fosters.

Jan 9, 2019 | Rating: 4.85/5 | Full Review…

STREAM IT. It's a more marginal recommendation if you're not a fan of The Fosters, but Mitchell and Ramirez have the ability to carry this show on their own, so at some point it may separate itself from its parent program.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Good Trouble deftly moves beyond the mold from which it was created in order to emerge as something new, exciting, and capable of standing on its own.

Audience Reviews for Good Trouble: Season 1

  • Jul 23, 2020
    It's a fun portrayal of millennial/Gen-Z big-city life, but a lack of likable characters and a heavy-handed focus on Maia Mitchell's character over her costar's leaves Good Trouble short of what it aspires.
  • Apr 22, 2020
    This show is absolute garbage.
  • Mar 07, 2020
    Not about making a great entertaining show. It's about pushing progressive drivel. My wife watches so that's the only reason I know about it.
  • Feb 15, 2020
    I am in love, there are some issues that are like ok, overall I highly recommend it if you have seen the fosters which I loved as well, I binged watched it like 8 times, you never know what's going to happen and it keeps me on my toes
  • Aug 28, 2019
    I like the characters and the sets look great. But it's kind of weird that ABC/Disney, one of the biggest corporations in the US, is pushing this man-hating, racially divisive agenda onto young people like its something they should aspire to. Do they really want "social justice" , or do they just want to divide and conquer like corporations have always done? Also the ep where the white guy spits on the black democrat mom is quite a bit of projection. I'm from one of the bluest cities in america, and here the only people who go around spitting on, beating up, and throwing piss on people are antifa liberals.
  • Aug 13, 2019
    Just incredibly disappointed to see another TV show not about good TV but about pushing a political agenda onto the viewers. As well as insinuating everyone who isn't a liberal is a "bigot" (a word often used in the show)
  • Aug 09, 2019
    Good trouble really needs to revolve more around Callie and Mariana. Show is about way toooooo many people, everyone gets about 5 minutes per episode, Show is more like a daytime soap then a night time drama.
  • May 16, 2019
    Good Trouble is a spin off of Freeform's successful show, The Fosters, which follows the lives of Lena and Stef, a lesbian couple, and their children (a few of which are adopted). Good Trouble follows Callie and Mariana Foster (the two girls of the family's children) as they embark as new adults in present day Los Angeles. The series offers a diverse cast and tackles many serious issues that are taking place today. The show's perspective is mainly modern and politically sways mostly to the left. It is fair and graceful in it's presentation and offers plenty of comedic relief while dealing with serious topics. Overall, the show is well done, intriguing and will likely leave it's target audience feeling inspired.

    This show kept me on my toes. I couldnâ??t wait for a new episode every week. It talks about so many important issues that people face in society and it helps shed some light on them. It is sexy and serious but it can also be a good laugh. I would 10/10 recommend for someone who is wondering if they should watch it.
  • Apr 01, 2019
    I started watching this show before the Fosters and it was so good I went and watched the whole 5 seasons of The Fosters. Loved it! so now starting over on watching Good Trouble. Hope they have many seasons of this show!
