Things I didn’t like:

  • They jumped around from scene-to-scene a little too much
  • Why can’t shows stop using a love triangle as a plot-line; it’s so boring
  • There were too many flashbacks to the night before

Overall, Good Trouble is an amazing show that talks about serious issues in a fun and creative way. This show is a good fit for anyone who wants to watch something that makes them feel as if their personal concerns are being heard. While there are some technical issues among the construction, like cutting from one scene to a different scene too much, in the end, it has a lot to offer for anyone who’s willing to watch it.
