Keeping it short today, folks. I’ve actually managed to stay in my room, for forty-eight solid hours, without sleep (I’m exaggerating but you know what I mean) and binge watched on Good Girls. This is an NBC show that premiered last year and a friend recommended it to me, and boy, oh boy, is this show GOOD.
If you watch and love Dynasty, you’ll love this. Here’s five reasons why.
• BODY POSITIVITY.
The first thing I noticed was that none of the leading ladies looked anything like a Victoria’s Secret model. Say what?
The show centers around three suburban mommies – two sisters and their best friend – Beth, Annie and Ruby, and both Beth and Ruby are curvy and Annie isn’t six feet tall. They’re relatable as heck. I love this!
• Female friendship.
We’ve been led to believe that only dudes have each other’s backs. Uh uh. Watch the show, you’ll see what I mean.
• Kickass quotes.
Whoever writes the dialogue is a genius. There’s this line that Annie says to her ex, “You loved my eyebrows because your wife plucked hers to death,” and it had me in literal tears. There’s so much you can actually put on a tee shirt and be totally inspired.
• Amazing plot.
From being “boring and dumb” to being money launderers to drug dealers to car dealers and back and forth and back again – it’s fast paced and hella intense.
They cover everything. I love how the show has includes transgender kids, consent, real and raw human emotion, how far people will go for money and for their families.
I love how Rio is such eye candy with his mmhmm and his refusal to make the first move and let the lady come to him. And I love how, for a change, you fall in love and root for the bad guy.
I love the sexual tension between Beth and Rio – you’ll notice it right away. It’s almost palpable. And you can feel it. It’s that tangible. I mean, holy whoa.
Are you watching yet? Go. Go. GO.
