First a kiss via fever dream with Callie and now a friend date with Mariana? Alice Kwan is single-handedly queering the Adams Foster sisters.
Alice tries to play a player, and ends up getting played.
For a show that usually aims for gravitas, Good Trouble does humor exceptionally well.
In light of last week’s anti-Asian racist murders in Atlanta, this week’s episode — which features Alice continuing to battle against Asian stereotypes in her diversity comedy program — just hit different.
BOUNDARY SETTING IS ADORABLE, Y’ALL!
If you’ve been missing crying over The Fosters, good news — Stef and Lena are back to remind you it’s not where you come from; it’s where you belong.
Rhea Butcher is back in an episode that explores racism in comedy, as Alice attends the CBTV diversity workshop.
This week’s Good Trouble shines a worthwhile light on the problem with cash bail.
Good Trouble has never been a show about escapism, and its season three opener, set in a Covid-free world, feels like a missed opportunity.
I wish I had the words to fully explain the world that Good Trouble invites us into this week; I feel like nothing I say can fully do it justice. It is ethereal… a profound admission of black pain, an honest acknowledgement of the need for black healing and a wholehearted embrace of black joy.
Alice moves on from her heartbreak with a hook-up and some new stand-up material.
“Everybody wants to be an ally but not everyone wants to be an ally long enough to make themselves uncomfortable. Everybody wants to be an ally, but not everyone is willing to have their own standing threatened. People rationalize their action — or inaction, as it were — but what it fundamentally comes down to is everybody wants to be known as an ally but few people are will to invest their time, money and security in actually being an ally.”
Callie and Mariana Adams Foster have always been the heart of this show so it’s fitting that they’d be reunited for Valentine’s Day.
The secret of Alice’s kiss with Rhea Butcher finally finds daylight.
Alice levels up her lesbian drama and her boundaries!
Good Trouble continues its tradition of highlighting an increasing number of important issues that often go undiscussed, like opioid use among young people and education policy — but “Gumboat Becky” also shows a series that’s evolving and willing to address how it builds its own narrative.
Good Trouble is back with a visit from Judicorn, and Callie finally feels like Callie again!
While the return of Stef and Lena Adams Foster to our TV screens was always going to be a cause for celebration around here, their presence — and the presence of six (!!) other LGBT characters — on Good Trouble’s two hour holiday special seemed particularly poignant in the wake of Hallmark’s bigotry.
The mideason finale of Good Trouble showcases the hard, un-glamorous, often solitary work of becoming an adult — something it does better than most shows on television.
With the summer finale looming, everyone is forced to take a good long look at themselves and their relationships.
Focusing on the chosen family that’s been built at the Coterie allows the show to be serious, sincere, sexy and fun, all at once — and always results in some of Good Trouble’s best episodes.
