Review of "Good
Girls" 2/27/18 by
airs Mondays 10/9c on NBC.
This show is very different than any others I've seen.
Three suburban moms, who all need money for various reasons,
decide that the only way they can get the thirty thousand
dollars they need is to rob a grocery store. Since none of
the ladies have ever robbed a grocery store before, they are
shocked when their plan works, and they get half a millon
dollars instead. They spit the money and decide not to do
anything until things cool down, but the store owner finds
out they robbed the store. Since he is a gang leader,
they must find a way to pay hin back the money. In the
meantime, the ladies spent a little of the money to make
their lives better, and they struggle to figure out how to
pay back the gang leader. I think that the premise of this
show is rather limited because how many episodes can you
watch these ladies rob people to make up for the money they
took from the grocery store? Maybe there will be more twists
and turns that I can't predict, to keep it interesting.
The show also tends to drag on a bit. I think it would
have been better as a half hour show, instead of an hour. I
give this show 3 out of 5 stars because I would watch it if
I didn't have any new epiosodes of my favorite shows to
watch. It does have a strong lead in from "The Voice," so
people might watch for a few weeks, but then they might stop
watching if they get bored.
When three suburban moms get tired of trying to make
ends meet, they decide it's time to stick up for
themselves by robbing the local grocery store. But when
the manager catches a glimpse of one of them and the
loot is far more than they expected, it doesn't take
long for the three best friends to realize the perfect
getaway will be harder than they think. From Executive
Producer Jenna Bans ("Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal," "The
Family") comes this comedy-infused drama that mixes a
little "Thelma & Louise" with a bit of "Breaking Bad."

"Another Period"), Retta ("Parks and Recreation,"
"Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce"), Mae Whitman
("Parenthood," "Arrested Development"), Reno Wilson
("Mike & Molly"), Manny Montana ("Graceland"), Lidya
Jewett ("Hidden Figures"), Izzy Stannard ("Brad's
Status") and Matthew Lillard ("Twin Peaks," "Bosch").
Jenna Bans will write and executive produce. Dean
Parisot ("Galaxy Quest," "Masters of Sex," "Justified,"
"Curb Your Enthusiasm") directs and executive produces.
Jeannine Renshaw ("Grey's Anatomy," "Ghost Whisperer,"
"The Family") also executive produces.
