What I’m Watching: Good Girls

Good Girls: Season 3, Episode 7 “Vegas, Baby” (C-)

Okay, now things have gone too far, and I’m giving this show one more episode before I just give up. The botched robbery was the first sign of how these three women, for how clever they are to be able to stay alive so long, continue to make absolutely poor decisions that lead to very expected and poor consequences for them and those around them. Annie is clearly the least responsible of the three, and technically this wasn’t her fault, but she would probably have been a better fit to have created a diversion outside than to be in charge of defusing a situation where someone ended up getting shot. Stan getting into illicit business because he decided he wasn’t righteous enough to become a cop again hardly seems like the most logical option, and he’s definitely going to get into trouble as he sees the potential for financial gain. I don’t even want to touch on Dean making a power play when Gayle tried to fire him since it’s both stupid and uninteresting. Beth introducing Max to Rio was in no way a good or plausible idea, mainly because there’s no reason that Rio wouldn’t have done some research and known what the problematic boyfriend he wanted to kill looked like. Most absurdly, Rio spent an extraordinary amount of effort to neatly move every single thing in Beth’s home, a symbolic message that will have Beth’s children making too much noise and will accomplish so little. It’s just too unbelievable, and I can’t imagine this show will go somewhere positive after that.
