Good Girls 

Review of "Good Girls" 2/27/18 by Eva Diaz
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."
The cast includes Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men," "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.

"Good Girls" is produced by Universal Television.
