Good Girls Revolt

Image result for good girls revolt

This week, I watched the show Good Girls Revolt on Amazon.  In 1969, while a cultural revolution swept through the free world, there was still one place that refused to change with the times: newsrooms. Good Girls Revolt follows a group of young female researchers at “News of the Week,” who ask to be treated fairly. Their revolutionary request sparks convulsive changes and upends marriages, careers, sex lives, love lives, and friendships.

I absolutely loved it.  Now, it can be a like soap opera-esque, but I really enjoyed it.  The characters are interesting.  I liked that they represented different types of women in the 1960’s- the hippy, the career girl, the housewife, etc.

All of these women work for a magazine as researchers.  Some of them would like to become reporters, but the company will not allow them to.  The women band together to revolt.

The show sucked me in and made me want to fight with them.

Unfortunately,  Amazon cancelled the show.  Now, I don’t want to give away the ending of the series, but it felt really unfinished.  The entire season builds to a moment, and that moment happens in the last few minutes of the final episode.  We will never get to see the aftermath, and that is very disappointing to me.

It was such a good show and deserved a second season.  There is so much more story to tell.

Mr. Robot

I have to write about a show that I am absolutely obsessed with-Mr. Robot. I started watching it Sunday night and as of right now, Tuesday afternoon, I have finished the first two seasons. Now, I have to wait for the third one. I’m a fan of binge watching TV shows, but I don’t think I’ve ever been so enthralled in a show before. I highly recommend it. 
 
Mr. Robot is about Elliot, a cyber-security worker by day and a hacker by night. He is recruited by Mr. Robot, played by Christian Slater, to join fsociety, a hacker group like anonymous. Fsociety is targeting E corp, or evil corp, as Elliot calls it. E corp is a large client of the company Elliot works for, Allsafe.  
 
You don’t have to good with computers to be sucked into this thriller. Seriously, my mom who can barely operate her cell phone told me to watch me robot. It’s such a good thriller. The summary doesn’t do the show justice because it’s hard to explain the show without giving away the plot. There are so many plot twists. Usually I can spot a plot twist before it happens, but Mr. Robot still managed to surprise me.
 
I don’t want to give too much away but I loved it. I watched all 22 episodes in 2 days. The first two season are available on Amazon prime. Seriously, watch it before the third season comes out in October.
