What I’m Watching: Good Girls

Good Girls: Season 2, Episode 3 “You Have Reached the Voicemail of Leslie Peterson” (B-)

I’m growing a bit tired of how this show is going about its storyline. Particularly when it comes to anything involving Leslie, it feels very unsophisticated. It’s hard to believe that it took him this long to die, and we didn’t even get to see it on screen, which, if this was another show, would have me doubting that he was indeed gone for good. Mary Pat being so willing to give up Leslie’s location to our three protagonists wasn’t ultimately so helpful when Leslie left his motel to come to the house, where she resumed being completely subservient and then nearly didn’t make a clean getaway before deciding in the heat of the moment to run him over. At least Annie was able to prevent Beth from killing an innocent person, and she might also be able to cover for Leslie’s disappearance with the one person who’s actually going to care that he’s no longer around: his grandmother. I do appreciate conversations like how much the motel costs that happen between the main characters, and that kind of content is what will keep me coming back rather than the current direction of the plot. I’m intrigued to see more of Rio’s attorney contact, played by Lauren Stamile, who I remember from her role on “Off Centre” years ago. Ruby is also doing a better job of working to motivate Stan to help her without exposing the continued misdeeds that she and her friends are perpetrating which would definitely infuriate him.
