Three best friends band together to stop playing by the rules and take control of their lives. They hold up a grocery store to save their struggling families -- but since they're new to this game, getting away with it may not be so easy.
"Good Girls" is just a meh time. It's a wan attempt to make points - good points - about sexism, inequality, patriarchy, and health care, stitched together with a story line that is seriously underdeveloped.
As a network show, it can't go far enough, deep enough, into these women's lives to make us root for them with anything like intensity. Good Girls needs to break bad much more badly than it's allowed to as part of NBC's lineup.
