Good Girls

Seasons: 4

Created By: Jenna Bans

Starring: Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Isaiah Stannard, Matthew Lillard

When you get into a great new show but feel like no one else is watching, it’s the worst feeling. You’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop, and by the other shoe, we mean the dreaded drop of the cancellation axe. Luckily, NBC’s crime comedy-drama Good Girls has found success in streaming, thanks to new fans flocking to the funny, twisty good time on Netflix.

In the world of Good Girls, the solution to being in a tough financial spot is robbing a local grocery store. At least, that was the plan for Beth (Christina Hendricks), Ruby (Retta) and Annie (Mae Whitman), before their plan spiraled wildly beyond control. Before long, they’re in the clutches of a local drug ring, laundering money and running an endless sprint away from the law.

Good Girls has been an underdog since its debut on Netflix in February 2018, but streaming on Netflix has been its saving grace. The critical darling has become one of the top shows on streaming as well as a small-screen draw. Sometimes you should proceed with caution when a show gains popularity, but you should run rather than walk to the high-stakes humor of Good Girls.
