It’s been several hours, I’ve even slept in that time, and I’m still not over how good this episode was. It was by far one of the best of Good Girls to date. Looking back over the episode to write this review, I genuinely can’t pick a favourite moment because it was all equally compelling. Even with Dean being annoying or Turner continuing to be frustrating, everything about this episode drew you in and overall there was this perfect balance between the comedy and the more dramatic side of the show.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 18: ‘Jawbreaker’ Review

After a brief hiatus, Riverdale is back with more episodes for season three. This week there are three main things going on: Betty investigating the Farm, Jughead and FP investigating the death of Baby Teeth, and Archie fighting in an upcoming match against one of Elio’s fighters. This episode was actually really well laid out and it felt like we spent a good amount of time with each storyline. Considering the overall structure of the season has felt a little bit all over the place, it was nice that we got some structure during this episode.

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 7: ‘The Dubby’ Review

Firstly, let’s take a moment to appreciate (and scream about) the fact that Good Girls has already been renewed for season 3. While I’m not too surprised that it got renewed, I am surprised that it happened now. I was really expecting to have to wait until the end of the season but we finally have this fantastic news which means we get to enjoy the rest of season 2 knowing full well that we get more!

Anyway, with that being said, this episode primarily saw Beth trying to balance her business life and her family life and it’s safe to say that it isn’t working out. Good Girls is amazing at a lot of things but it is particularly good at intriguing montages. This time around we see one of Beth’s average routine. She gets up ridiculously early, leaves cute little post-it notes for her children, and then goes off to deal with the day. When she leaves in the morning it’s dark and when she returns it’s to a quiet house, it’s dark once again. She does this day in and day out. It’s even gotten to the point where she has a planner for her “business” side of things.

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 6: ‘Take Off Your Pants’ Review

This episode shows yet another change in the dynamic between Beth and Rio. The former is adjusting to the changes in her life. It seems like she’s doing amazingly well at the dealership but Dean isn’t coping too well at home. She’s understandably angered by the fact that he can’t do what she’s been doing for the last decade or so. And that’s not the only thing going on. Once again Rio has delved into some new venture and while he wants to use Beth and the dealership, he doesn’t want to divulge any information. It makes sense from a business stand point but Beth isn’t having any of it.

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 5: ‘Everything Must Go’ Review

Another week, another episode of Good Girls for me to loose my mind over. This show is genuinely so good and it seems to get better with every week that passes. It’s always so well paced and beautifully structured to the point that waiting every week really is painful.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 17: ‘The Master’ Review

Finally we got to properly see Edgar Evernever. At the very end of last week’s episode we saw him stand up and clap the final performance of the musical along with various members of the Farm. This week, we get a little more. With the Farm having an open house, people are welcome to visit to find out more and even take little interviews with existing members to find out how to join up.

Betty goes to the open house with Veronica but doesn’t really find out much at all, however, she is able to convince Cheryl to go in wearing a wire. It’s during her two visits that we really see Edgar. He’s definitely as charismatic as I thought he would be but it’s also crystal clear that he can’t be trusted. When Betty snoops around, taking the confession tapes of Alice and Polly, and finds out one of the Farms biggest pulls, Edgar agrees to sit down with her.
