Good Girls 2018 TV Show NBC Series Trailer Reviews Impelreport. There are reasons, which quickly become apparent, that “Good Girls” is not called “Breaking Bad Girls.” But the surface parallels to “Breaking Bad,” the teacher-turned-drug-dealer drama, are tough to miss. The story starts with money trouble that can’t be solved within the bounds of lawful behavior. Beth (Christina Hendricks) wants to shed a philandering husband (Matthew Lillard) without losing her house. Her sister, Annie (Mae Whitman), is in a custody battle with her more-affluent ex (Zach Gilford). Ruby (Retta) has a daughter in need of an expensive medical treatment that must be paid for out of pocket.
Within a couple of commercial breaks, the three are in and out and counting their take. But the plan has worked too well. Instead of the $30,000 they were expecting, the store vault has half a million bucks. Annie’s sleazeball boss has been laundering money for a gang, leaving the trio to hide a fortune and get a quick education in organized crime.
The resulting frying-pan-and-fire story line forces the three leads to confront how serious they are about being criminals. The problem, as enjoyable as “Good Girls” often is, is that it seems unsure how serious it is about being a crime story.
