If you were to ask me to describe NBC’s newest show Good Girls, I’d say it’s Bad Moms but for television. A delectable mix of Breaking Bad and Thelma and Louise. 

Much like the big-screen film, the new comedy-drama focuses on three friends who are pretty fed up with the state of their lives and more importantly, all the money problems. (Aren’t we all?!)

Annie Marks is the single and young mom who got pregnant at 17. She works at a grocery store making minimum wage and getting hit on by her Harvey Weinstein of a boss, Boomer.

Early on, she finds out that her ex Greg is suing her for custody with his new desperate housewife.

It’s unclear how Greg was able to pull his life together while Annie is still trying to make ends meet and support their daughter, Sadie, who is “finding herself” and constantly being bullied at school.

Also, what kind of computer can she buy Sadie with a single bill that Greg half-heartedly threw at her like she was some kind of peasant? One bill obviously couldn’t be more than $100 so I want to know where he’s shopping for laptops!

Next, we have Beth Boland, Annie’s older sister, who leads the perfect life. Or so it seems.

We meet her in quite an intimate setting as she’s literally getting her lady parts waxed for her husband Dean.

However, at that same time, Dean’s face is literally in Amber’s, his airheaded, blonde co-worker’s, crotch. Yep, he’s cheating and seeing Beth go through the all that grooming pain just to know he could care less cause is enough to make your blood boil.

Pair that with her credit card being declined mid-wax because Dean was “too busy” to pay the bill and he’s literally a low-life loser that we’d rather see gone. And we barely even know the guy!

It doesn’t take long for Beth to put the pieces together and conclude that Dean is cheating on her. All those lingerie charges on the declined credit card means he’s been either buying her a sweet present or his side-piece one.

Almost immediately, we catch onto the fact that Beth is one hell of a liar, which is definitely a good thing considering what this show’s about.

Her sob story at the local Lover’s Lane was next level and proved her suspicion to be true — that ITTY BITTY THONG was definitely not for her.

After Beth trashes his room, she gets housewife wasted and waits for him to get home in the dark, like any sane woman would do.

Dean crumbles under the pressure, but even more worrying than his affair is the fact that he’s gotten them in some deep financial burden. I’m talking ZERO money. That’s not news a woman who blindly trusted her man with the family’s finances ever wants to hear.

Ladies, let this be a lesson to you, don’t even rely so much on a man that you end up having no idea what he’s doing with your money and your future.

Before I go on, we have to intro mommy number three. Ruby is a happily married woman who works at a diner and thus, cannot afford treatments for her cancer-stricken daughter Sara.

Ruby is such well-rounded character; she’s a no-nonsense woman but has to stand by helplessly while her daughter is dying. She can’t even find her voice to speak up and ask her doctor about clinical trials because in this world if you don’t have the money, they don’t have the time to listen to you.

The one underlying theme here is that these are three strong, brave, independent women who will do anything to save their children.

Thus, the bank robbery plot is born.

Annie convinces them into thinking robbing her grocery store will be super easy and that there’s about 30 thousand, give or take, in the vault located in the back.

Desperate, they all agree and before you know it, they’re donning black ski masks and pointing sharpie-filled-in toy guns at innocent shoppers.

I can’t say it’s going well, but it’s not terrible until Annie gets frustrated with Boomer and leans over to shove more cash into the bags, revealing her tramp stamp, which Boomer DEFINITELY recognizes.

Look, I don’t know what’s worse: getting caught by the cops or having a creepy boss know about that crime you committed and holding it against you. Because obviously, Boomer is going to use this to his advantage.

The cops might not be too keen on finding 30K like Annie said, but they’ll definitely care about the half million that these ladies just brought back home with them.

The agreement is to sit on the money before they can come up with some logical solution. In theory, that sounds great. In reality, these are three broke women with needs and desires not only for themselves but for their families.

Annie spends her sum on a brand new car, a fancier version of Nancy’s, which impresses Sadie.

Despite not having the means, Annie and Sadie definitely have a thriving mother and daughter bond. Sometimes, I’m not sure who is taking care of who.

Ruby uses her money to get Sara into a better doctor and into one of the promising clinical trials.

They say money doesn’t buy you happiness but it definitely cleans up messes.

Seeing the difference between a low-income doctor and a doctor who actually takes the time to treat her patients and even offers cucumber water is striking. This is our reality people.

Beth heads over to the dealership and gives Amber some “go away” money. At first, I assumed she was doing it to save her marriage, but after Amber opened her mouth, she realized her husband made a grave mistake because homegirl was dumb with a capital D.

In a twisted way, she knew they were both better off without the cheating scum, plus she wanted him to suffer without his precious side-piece She’ll probably become a porn star in Hollywood or something and make lots of money.

But just when you think things may be shaping up for them, aside from the whole “we stole half a million” dilemma, things take a turn for the worse.

Money doesn’t buy you happiness, it creates more problems!

Boomer comes knocking on Annie’s door and threatens to go to the police if she doesn’t sleep with him.

Sex in exchange for silence? Nothing new but still just as disgusting.

It’s nerve-wracking seeing Annie realize that they’d been made out by probably the worst human being ever.

As for the money, they didn’t steal it from a grocery store. Why would a local chain hang onto that much money? Nope. The money in the vault belonged to a local gang led by Rio, who demands all the cash back with interest.

Dang, we’re in deep and this is the first episode!

The three leading ladies are so contrasting; you can relate to each one of them or all three at different times, for different reasons.

They are warriors and in a time of crisis and will do whatever it takes to protect their own. They learn fairly quickly that breaking the law comes with grave consequences but as they try to dig themselves out of this, they develop into their own.

They are anti-heroines in the “taketh no bullshit” sense, which definitely speaks to women in our society who need real role models, edgy women who won’t be silenced.

There is no better time than now for women to fight back; for our television to have such versatile leading women who are no longer going to stand idly and be hopeless, but who will take the narrative back. It starts with women feeling like they’re at the bottom, and let’s be honest, what woman doesn’t feel that way.

The series acknowledges that.

We’re always competing against our male counterparts, juggling multiple jobs, balancing the household and half the time, we still can’t afford to live.

And I love that a series is basically telling us, “don’t rely on the men!” Because as great as having a husband that provides for you is, you always have to be ready for the worst.

 

Beth’s transformation is one I’m looking forward to the most. Out of the three, she’s the one who seems the most conservative and has the most room to grow. She’s newly single, a woman scorned and out for blood, but what happens when she gets a taste of the “good life.” It has the potential to be dangerous.

Thoughts on the first episode of Good Girls? Was it everything you imagined it would be?

Good Girls Series Finale Review – I’m the Boss (4×15 and 4×16)

Published

on

Good Girls Series Finale Review Nevada Season 4 Episode 16

Beth finally did it. She finally became the boss. 

But it cost her a whole lot. 

On Good Girls Season 4 Episode 15 and 16, (which sadly served as the series finale after NBC canceled the show) Beth ran for City Council and won. She also did her best to bring down Nick before realizing that it was one of the goals she and Rio had in common. 

I’m not going to lie — that final moment of Rio and Beth sitting on a bench together was a pretty perfect ending. Beth finally realized what was pretty obvious all along: she was never going to enjoy Nevada. Her dream of Nevada proved that they could never outrun their problems because they weren’t external, they were internal issues.

Rio pushed the hair out of her face and acknowledged that she finally leveled up the way he always wanted and expected her to. By doing so, he also admitted that he had real feelings for her. I’m not okay. 

If the series continued on, it would have been great to see what they would accomplish next as equals… well, technically, she was his boss now. We would have seen #Brio happen. I’m so mad that the show wasn’t renewed, but I’m also somehow content at least knowing that the two of them will continue ruling the world together. 

Good Girls Series Finale Review Nevada Season 4 Episode 16

Beth always needed to stop fighting who she was in order to step into her glory.

However, as I said before, becoming who she really was cost her, including her husband Dean. (Okay, let’s be honest, she wasn’t even that distraught by any of it because she got the job, the boss life, and Rio!) 

After Beth was shot and refused to tell the police who did it, Dean realized that he couldn’t do this anymore and left her. 

The dream of utopia — Nevada — died for Annie also when she was arrested. 

I’m kind of unclear about what happened here, so maybe someone can explain it to me. 

Mick shot Beth to teach her that there are consequences for her actions. It was clearly a call made by Nick, which is odd since Mick is Rio’s boy. But I guess since they were all on Nick’s payroll, it made sense?

Anyway, once Beth brought it up, Annie realized she was in some trouble and forfeited her dream of leaving for Nevada with Kevin and Ben. What did she have to do with the gun that I’m assuming was the same one that was linked to Lucy’s death and thus, had Beth’s and only Beth’s prints on it. 

How was it pinned on Annie?

And wouldn’t Beth be able to get her out with the new powers her gig gave her? That is unless Nick was able to get Annie’s prints off of the keycard she stole from his assistant and framed her that way. 

If someone has an explanation here, I’m all ears! 

https://twitter.com/notebrookepaper/status/1418406464507498499?s=20

If Annie was framed as payback, it would explain why he said that he “hit her where it hurts.” But how would Annie know she was being framed?!

In the end, the siblings were the ones to take the fall while Beth and Rio came out on top. 

And Ruby was forced to choose between being loyal to Beth and Annie or to her family. 

She hesitantly chose her family, and honestly, it’s probably for the best. 

Beth has chosen Rio and a life of crime, but Ruby doesn’t need to be dragged down any further. She was loyal this whole time, but she can move on.

My hope for Ruby is that she successfully gets out of town and opens up her own Hill’s Nails with Stan! 

It’s possible that the storyline with Vance would have continued on into Season 4, but nothing was actually resolved with him in this episode. It’s unfortunate as the series spent so much time investing in his character. 

I would’ve loved to see Dean and Stan take him down for manipulating them. He deserved it. 

Dean has never been my favorite character, but he was exceptionally dense this season. I know Beth’s lifestyle can be a handful, but she’s always been in Dean’s corner. She may be the reason he got arrested, but she was also trying to remedy that situation. Somewhere along the lines, his house arrest stopped being a thing, so I’m guessing that she took care of it by partnering up with the FBI again on the low? Point is, Beth had his back, while he didn’t have hers. 

Dean wanted so badly to trust someone that he ended up being made a fool of by Vance, who was using him this whole time. 

No wonder Dean has such trust issues. 

Admittedly, the fact that Vance wanted to blackmail Beth into plugging his face cream was a bit of a letdown, but it would be something so trivial that got Dean all caught up. 

And that’s yet another reason why I’m so glad Beth ended up with Rio by her side. He always believed in her, and while his methods of pushing her were questionable, he never left or turned his back on her.

If there’s any truth to the rumors that NBC canceled Good Girls because Manny Montana wouldn’t take a pay cut are true, it makes sense. How could the show continue on without him when he’s now closer to Beth than ever before? They are the A-team, so there’s no show without him.

The FBI storyline also felt watered down. It’s unclear how they were able to take down Nick since they were never there on official business, but I like that the storyline revealed that all the money laundering accounts were in grandma’s name. 

Rio knew that Nick would never let granny go down for it. 

Beth and Rio made it very clear to Nick that he couldn’t get away with playing them. Nick tried to use Beth as a scapegoat, but Rio didn’t allow it because that’s his girl. No one messes with her.

But I don’t think for a second that Nick would’ve stayed in prison for long. My guess is if that the show continued, it would have been Beth and Rio versus Nick. 

Overall, I like where the storyline ended up, but the final few episodes felt so choppy that I kept wondering if I missed something.

The road was also frustrating. 

Season 1 was a massive success because the show was so thrilling and revolutionary, however, everything that came after was a bit “meh” because Beth and the ladies constantly got caught up in the same problems over and over. They kept making the same mistakes and never seemed to learn their lesson.

But now, Beth finally reached her full potential. It would’ve been interesting to see it manifest on screen, and it’s a shame we never will. 

What did you think of the Good Girls two-hour series finale?

Good Girls Review – Thank You For Your Support (4×14)

Published

Good Girls Review Thank You For Your Support Season 4 Episode 14

On Good Girls Season 4 Episode 14, the race for the City Council seat was on. Beth Boland squared off against Denise Carpenter, who put up a good fight.

Unfortunately, despite her nifty little commercial to make the neighborhood a better place, she didn’t stand a chance against Beth when she decided to play dirty. 

How ironic is it that Beth’s platform for City Council is “give crime a time out,” yet she’s not only using her life of crime to secure herself the spot, but she’s also responsible for half the crime in town? 

Though I’m not going to lie, I did enjoy seeing Mick rough Denise up a little bit. 

When it comes to crime in the Detroit area, Beth is one of the biggest contributors, but she’s also a person who is seriously trying to make it a better place for her kids. She knows firsthand just how dangerous the gangs are, and she understands just how much power that those elected to serve the community posesses.

She’s a criminal by night, hero by day.

There’s no better person to bring about change, but, of course, there are some obstacles to get through.

For starters, she had to actually win her spot on City Council without anyone’s help. 

Beth is resourceful, so Nick pushed her to do things her way, which included using the strip club to entice donors.

And let’s just say, they were generous. 

However, all the money that she collected at the club was taken by Rio, who suggested that Beth figure out a different way to raise funds. 

Both Nick and Rio could’ve easily handled things for Beth and secured her the “W.” Why didn’t they? Did they just want to see her take this on alone?

Beth decided to get some advice from Phoebe, who surprisingly encouraged her to use her criminal background to get what she needs hence the ambush on Denise. 

Good Girls Review Thank You For Your Support Season 4 Episode 14

She didn’t have much of a choice as Denise threatened to expose Dean’s arrest, and Beth had no time to waste if she wanted any shot at taking down Nick and Rio. 

Phoebe and Dave are helping, but since they’re in Detroit unofficially, means they don’t have the backing or resources provided by the FBI. They need Beth to go rogue in order to succeed in their mission, which is also very backward. 

Fight crime with crime, I guess. 

On one hand, you could say they’re really dedicated to taking down Rio and the gang, but on the other hand, their involvement is kind of pointless if they can’t really help the ladies in any real way. 

I’m not sure why they’re still around, but I’m also not completely opposed to Beth and Phoebe’s strange friendship. 

It works, somehow. And they have an unspoken appreciation for each other that’s nice to see. 

Rio eventually gave Beth all the money back, along with her furniture, proving that he always believed in her abilities to get the job done. 

It’s not a secret that Beth’s resourceful — it’s one of the main reasons why Rio has kept her around for so long.

Rio directly sabotaged Nick’s plans with Beth, which indicates that they don’t see eye-to-eye, yet they work together. 

To be quite frank, the whole situation between them is really confusing. 

I thought he was supporting Nick’s plans to get Beth involved because it would benefit them, but Rio seems irritated and annoyed that his brother/cousin is moving in on his woman. He’s also struggling to hide his jealously. 

At this point, I don’t know what their game plan is since it’s never as straightforward as one might think. Why does Nick want Beth involved so badly? Is it so that she’ll help him pass ideas and motions or does he want to pin something on her eventually?

Dave explained that Nick is getting shell contracts and kickbacks, which he needs help getting across the finish line, but I feel like there has to be more to it.

Since this is serving as the penultimate episode before the unintended series finale, I’m afraid we might never figure out what the bigger picture is. 

Dean is the most frustrating character this season as is his quest to regain his freedom by turning on his wife. 

When he confronted Vance about stalling with the DA, Vance informed him to check in with Stan. While Stan wanted to bring down Beth, it was never going to be possible without also incriminating Ruby. I don’t know why either of them thought it was.

These girls are ride or die, even if they do get frustrated with Beth calling the shots from time to time.

Beth may be the leader of the pack, but they’ve only gotten as far as they have because they work together.

But just because Dean and Stan may want to pull back and forget any of this ever happened, will Vance let it go? He now has something against them, which means he could easily manipulate them. 

And you know how these cult-like people are. 

He also saw Rio leaving Beth’s place, so he definitely has enough to bring Beth down.

I also wish Dean would put aside his own wants and needs to consider why Vance is so determined to help him bring down Beth.

Is he just a loyal friend, or is there more to it?

Vance clearly enjoys the power he has at the brotherhood because he’s lacking it at home. 

After seeing him with his wife, it’s clear that he’s channeling his rage at her against Beth. He hates his wife and the way she treats him, but since he can’t do anything about it, he wants to help Dean nail Beth instead. 

It also explains why he’s so anti-women; when he found out about Beth’s City Council run, he made a sexist comment about “another woman” coming out on top.

Angry, much?

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Nancy, but being poor does not look good on her. 

After losing all of her money and her entire purpose in life, Nancy became depressed. 

Her relationship with Annie has improved greatly over the years, and it’s nice to see Annie go out of her way to make Nancy feel better. 

Bringing up that she slept with her husband multiple times probably wasn’t the best reminder that she can overcome anything, but Annie tried her best. It’s the thought that counts. 

Nancy has always been pretentious and allowed money to dictate her behavior, but now that she’s on the other side, she’s seeing how snobbish that was. 

She’s become more human in her understanding that you can’t just throw money at you’re problems, nor does having less money make you a bad person. 

She even acknowledges that she misjudged Kevin simply because of his homelessness.

Once she gave him a chance, she saw the greatness that Annie always did.

I don’t want to admit it but he is growing on me. Kevin seems to be good at everything — his whole life is a hack — and he has some serious survival skills.

It’s impressive that his lifestyle has always been a conscious choice.

Most importantly, he treats Annie right, which is more than we can say for some of the other guys she’s fallen for in the past. 

Hopefully, Annie won’t ruin this relationship before it even has a chance to take off. 

Though I enjoyed the moments with Nancy, I wish the series focused more on wrapping up the storylines. 

I know it’s an unrealistic expectation considering they didn’t anticipate the cancellation, but I’m fearful that we’re all going to be left without any type of closure. 

We’ll never know what Rio’s end goal was, what Nick was up to, how the girls found their way out of things, or what happens to the brotherhood. 

With so many shows getting canceled left and right, I just want to know how a series ends. Is that too much to ask for, NBC?

Let us know what you thought about the episode in the comments below!

Good Girls Review – Maybe She’s Just Not That Into You (4×13)

Published

Good Girls Review You Season 4 Episode 13

It’s about time that Good Girls looped it back to the FBI agents and Luke the cop that Mick killed after he got too close to the truth. 

Being a councilman comes with a handful of privileges, but if you don’t clean up your messes properly, they could really take on a life of their own. 

Luke was “slaughtered” after he made the connection between Rio and Nick, but not before asking another cop to pull the evidence.

While cleaning up his things, the cop sent that hot goss to Phoebe — who was suspended after Beth stole the fake money — giving her the ammo she needed to revisit the case. 

They were always close, they just never had enough to connect the dots… until now.

Even without the FBI’s backing, Phoebe wanted to dig further into the case, so she sought out help from Dave. He was initially hesitant, but when he realized he could be doing literally anything else than planting a garden, he told his wife the truth about his sexuality and joined Phoebe in Detroit.

But since they are pursuing this off the record, does it mean that none of it will stick and justice won’t get served?

They wasted no time seeking Beth out and giving her the ammo to take on Rio and Nick. 

Much like the FBI, Beth is always missing a piece of the puzzle to free herself from their grasp.

I don’t know how groundbreaking their intel actually is. Yes, the ticket stub that gave Rio an alibi the night of  Lucy’s murder links him to Nick, but Beth already knew that they were connected. He knows all of Rio’s business, so why wouldn’t she consider that he’s helping his brother/cousin (but definitely brother) get out of certain situations?

How else would Rio evade the FBI?

Did she truly just believe that Nick’s hands were clean? I think subconsciously she always knew he was involved but didn’t want to believe it.

Beth clearly has plans for her position on City Council. 

She was hesitant about running for City Council only because Ruby and Annie scoffed at the idea, but we all know that she loves a position of power; she was practically foaming at the mouth for the opportunity.

However, once she realized that Nick and Rio were in cahoots, she went full steam ahead. It’s unclear how she plans on taking them down, but Beth walked out of his office after giving him a bottle of the “good stuff” looking more confident than ever. 

At this point, no one is revealing their cards fully. 

Nick has no idea she’s playing him and likely thinks that he has the upper hand on her. Rio always knew when Beth was up to something, but I don’t think Nick knows her well enough to get a good read on her.

He thinks he won using his romancing tactics, which is why he sent Rio the bottle of whiskey with the note, “for pulling her hair,” which clearly upset Rio. He seems to have given Nick the greenlight to go after Beth, but under that tough exterior is a man that can’t help but care about her. 

Beth thinks she’s untouchable right now, and in a way, she is. She’s opening up the strip club, which would be a legal means of income if she were to get rid of Rio, and she’s hopping on City Council, which will allow her to make some real change in the community, again, once she gets rid of Rio.

And she seemingly has a way to get rid of Rio by teaming up with the FBI on the down-low.

Things might just be looking up for her!

Her biggest problem now isn’t even Rio, it’s Dean. Dean and Stan are going full-speed ahead with their plan to take down Beth. 

Dean hesitated for a bit, but Stan persuaded him that he was doing the right thing.

I always loved Stan, but this is making me rethink my choices. It’s so easy to try to run Beth over with the bus, but the moment he found out that Ruby was involved, he hit the brakes really quickly. 

It’s funny how he’s so blinded to reality. Beth may be loud and in charge, but Ruby is there of her own free will. In fact, the whole back in the strip club biz was because of Ruby and Annie. And while I’m glad they are finding their voices, speaking up for themselves, and negotiating their terms, it’s also unfair to pin this all on Beth in that case. They are all just as involved! 

Good Girls Review You Season 4 Episode 13

GOOD GIRLS — “You” Episode 413 — Pictured: Manny Montana as Rio — (Photo by: Jordin Althaus/NBC)

Stan doesn’t want to acknowledge that Ruby could’ve gotten herself into this mess, but it’s not doing them any favors to singlehandedly blame Beth for everything. Even the handbag deal wasn’t Beth’s fault as Ruby was the one who said it was a fake, but yet Stan continues to blame Beth for destroying their side hustle.

So now, poor Stan has to walk it all back to protect his woman by joining the MLM group. If only he just stuck his nose in his own business to begin with. I’ll be the first to say he kind of deserves whatever is coming his way.

The whole MLM group rubs me the wrong way. The brotherhood aspect is concerning, sure, but mostly, I can’t figure out why they’re so determined to help Dean pin this on Beth. 

How do they benefit? No one is ever that selfless. 

Vance agreed to stall on getting the evidence over to the DA if Stan joined the brotherhood, but how far is Stan willing to go? And would the case fall apart considering Beth is working with the FBI to flip on Rio? 

I could see Dean’s intel being thrown out and Beth walking free with her dream of Nevada, but only if the FBI operation is on the books.

There’s also a chance that Beth will find out about Dean’s betrayal and be pushed into going further in her business with Rio and Nick.

Nevada is the safe choice considering the series has been canceled. It’s nice to think the girls will get out of this whole mess and get a chance to start over, but I don’t think that would make Beth very happy. She’s denying a huge part of herself in order to be with Dean, but when he reveals what he did, I could see Beth allowing herself to do what she’s always wanted.

The show’s biggest downfall has been the lack of character development for Beth while working for Rio. He saw the potential in her and wanted to make her the “boss,” but she never elevated and instead remained his little lackey. 

Several seasons in and the ladies still don’t have any more money than they did when they began all of this. I would’ve loved to see Beth as a crime lord by now. 

Sadly, I’m not holding my breath for any type of closure since all of this was filmed prior to a cancelation.

I can’t figure out exactly what Rio and Nick are up to. They seem to be in cahoots about the end goal, but there’s so much hostility to navigate there. 

What do they need her in the City Council position for? Do they need a body to help them pass decisions? If they always have someone on their side, they can easily sway the vote in their favor. 

Or do they want to pin something on her? And if so, what?

I’m kind of digging the strip club storyline. A car dealership and jacuzzi shop just didn’t have the “oomph.”

It’s really eye-opening to see just how much having women strip club owners makes a difference. 

They’ve elevated the place with simple decisions that benefit the working woman like healthcare and childcare. 

And the series is doing a great job at showcasing the profession in a positive light. Not only are they an asset to the community as they directly impact other businesses, but dancers are just women and moms who are making a living and providing for their families. They’re caring, intelligent, fearless, and have everyday jobs and hobbies.

It shows club dancers as human!

I loved Ruby’s pitch that “instead of dancing on the table, you’ll finally have a seat at it.”

Isn’t that what every woman in every field wants? That’s definitely what Beth wanted at some point!

Annie was understandably concerned to sleep alone in her home as she didn’t want to be kidnapped and stuffed in a freezer again. I hate that she’s begging for a man to stay with her. I know she found something special with Kevin, but I wish they would remain friends.

It doesn’t have to turn romantic again!

What did you think of the episode? Will Stan be able to help Ruby? Will Dean go down for Beth’s crimes? Will she finally take down Rio and Nick?
