Good Trouble 2019, 2021, 2022, 2023 / A progressive comfort melodrama that draws from various styles and genres of TV


Unabashedly embracing the ridiculous twists, rotating romantic pairings, and other tropes common to young-adult comedy-dramas, Good Trouble offers a massive number of storylines that are always delivered with an easygoing charm and real filmmaking flair. Set in a communal living space in Los Angeles, each character’s personal drama often intersects with everyone else’s—allowing the show to look at every issue through a wide range of perspectives, and letting the authentic mess of human emotion and miscommunication drive the stories forward. It’s undeniably cheesy most of the time, but the energy in the show’s filmmaking and the fun chemistry among its actors helps dignify even the smallest everyday occurrence as something meaningful.
