When Serious Tones Meet Comedic Wit in ‘Good Girls’

Looking for a thrilling, but hilarious show that will keep you on your toes and at the edge of your seat? Good Girls is the best bet for you. Filled with witty comedy and a good number of action-packed scenes, Good Girls is about three very different women all trying to make ends meet for their families.

This is tested by what the three women are willing to do in order to get the money that they need. Unknown to them, the deeper they get sucked into the grand scheme of things by their decisions, the harder it is to live the innocent lives that they once had lived.

The show follows Beth, the perfect homemaker and mother, who is married to a cheating car salesman that spent all of their money on his mistress. It also follows Beth’s younger sister Annie, who is a single mother and is dealing with a difficult custody battle with her ex and has one child that is in search of finding her gender identity. Lastly, it follows their best friend Ruby, who is married to a police officer but is struggling due to their daughter’s medical issues.

The show follows how these women make the decision to rob their local grocery store to make ends meet for themselves. Later, these women find out that the grocery store was just a business ploy used by a secret corporation and its owner, Rio, to cover up a bigger, more illegal operation. They then find themselves in great trouble with not only their own financial burdens, but with Rio’s as well.

Good Girls has a tendency to have a serious tone, but a comedic flow. These three characters flow so well with each other and all three bring something different to the table. Beth serves more as a leader when negotiating with Rio and planning. Annie is more like the inside man that is good with logistics and making the plan come alive. Ruby serves more as moral ethics and is a great person when backup is necessary, but of course, how moral could they all be if they planned to rob a grocery store to solve their financial problems?

Overall, the show is fantastically put together and will have you at the end of your seat the entire time wondering what will happen next. The irony of the title Good Girls brings such a great mix with these good women actually just living day by day when their lives change because of a decision that they made to support themselves.

So what? The decision was bad… but in the end, I believe it provokes the question of if you believe that you were a highly moral person suffering with unbearable financial burdens, what would you do in order to solve the problem? With that being said, if you are looking for a show that will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you shout, then Good Girls is it.
