My Opinion On Freeform's 'Good Trouble'

My Opinion On Freeform's 'Good Trouble'

A brief summary of the first episode and my thoughts on the show. Spoilers ahead.


My favorite show, since the summer before my senior year of high school, was "The Fosters", and when Freeform announced that the show was coming to an end, it felt like my world ended. Well, that's kind of dramatic, but after five years of watching the show, I became attached to these characters, so to hear the show was ending... it was very upsetting.

But, thankfully, Freeform did not just let the Adams-Foster Family end in June 2018. The spinoff series, "Good Trouble", premiered January 8, 2019, and WOW, it was amazing!

"Good Trouble" follows Callie and Mariana Adams-Foster who are fresh out of college. With their new jobs, being new to Los Angeles, and new to the world of adulting, the two girls are bound to some slip-ups and a whole lot of drama! The first episode did not disappoint.

In the first episode, Callie and Mariana find out that their U-haul truck has been towed and everything inside has been stolen. Callie is not impressed with their new communal living situation and learns that Mariana chose to live there mainly because a guy she has a crush on also lives there, whom Callie does not know and got pretty intimate with this guy.

Both girls have a hard time adapting to their jobs and are humiliated by their boss and HR. But in true Freeform fashion, there are moments of love and laughter for Callie and Mariana as their new lives begin to take shape.

I was very pleased with the first episode of "Good Trouble", and I have high hopes for the show. Such as "The Fosters", this show will allow for conversation and connecting people of all backgrounds. I believe "Good Trouble" will show the ups and the downs of those who are just entering the adult world in an appropriate manner and not a belittling way, like how some shows joke of the millennial lifestyle.

With the moms no longer around all the time, I see a whole lot of trouble headed in the girls' direction. But no worries, Callie and Mariana will always have each others' backs.

I give "Good Trouble" five stars! I cannot wait to see what they have in store for this season and hopefully many more seasons to come!

5 Things To Do While Watching A Korean Drama

A guide on what to have and do when watching a K-Drama.


I should warn that although it is fun to binge watch a drama, it is not healthy if you're going to be sitting down the entire time. Don't worry, I have you covered for binge-watching and non-binge-watching. Korean Dramas are definitely very time-consuming and need the utmost attention, as you'll usually have to sit there and read the subtitles.

1. Snacks.

Do not underestimate the length of an episode of a Korean Drama because you will be demanding some snacks halfway through the episode. When I first started, I watched three episodes of "Flowers Over Boys" and I was starving! Funny enough, I had lunch before I started the drama, although, how can you not get hungry after watching over 30 minutes of delicious food! I do recommend healthy snacks if you are concerned with your weight. You can also have a meal while watching a Korean Drama since it will fill you up for the long run than a snack would.

2. Pillows and blankets.

You're going to be sitting down for a long time, so instead of sitting at a coffee table move to the sofa (unless the coffee table chair is comfortable). I used to sit at my family dining table and regret it whenever I stood up. Bring pillows and blankets for extreme comfort. Blankets can keep you warm in case the temperature of the room drops for no season. Also, pillows make it easier to take your frustrations on or hug when it gets too sad.

3. Stretch!

It is not good to be sitting down for long period of times, so whenever you get the chance to stretch those muscles out. It could be between episodes or whenever an adds pops up. If you're watching the Korean Drama on Viki adds will pop up! You can also take this time for bathroom breaks and refill up on drinks and snacks.

4. Box of tissues.

A single episode of a Korean drama is an emotional rollercoaster. You laugh, cry, scream, hope all in 15 imagine an hour of that! I then first started, I would have to pause the video to look for tissues because I could not hold back the tears. I got weird looks from my parents that day. If you know it's going to be a really sad episode, get ice cream!

5. Get another person!

Lately, I have learned how amazing it is to watch a Korean Drama with somebody else, whether a friend that is passionate about Korean dramas as well or your partner if they enjoy or wouldn't mind watching an episode with you. I just finished watching "Descendants of the Sun", and I had to call my partner because it was too sad and hugging my plush wasn't enough. So drag your friends to watch an episode or make it a sleepover to watch the whole show!
