Excellent show - shame on Amazon for canceling it (still worth watching season 1 though!)
3 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is an exceptional show, period. Despite the name of the show and the "cutsie" feel that is conveyed with the photos and trailers, it is actually a very serious drama about women's rights in the late 60's into the early 70's. And even better, the root of the story is true (yes, different characters, names, and fictional subplots, but the key elements are exactly what happened at Newsweek). Some might dismiss this as a cheap Mad-Men clone. Others might knock it as a silly comedy. But anyone stating those opinions has clearly not watched the show, as it is an outstanding original drama that stands tall among the best shows out there.

And just a quick rant - Amazon decided to not renew this show for a 2nd season. The first season is a nicely wrapped story-arc and stands alone just fine, but there are so many other stories that could be told with this series. While drug use is depicted in the show, I think the decision makers at Amazon must also be partaking with the same recreational activities that were so popular during that era. Amazon - shame on you for such poor judgment in not renewing the show; it could have been a shining star in your portfolio ("Transparent" is an amazing show, but it isn't 2015 or 2016 any more; "Good Girls Revolt" could have been your next mega hit if promoted and supported properly).
