With summer right around the corner, that means you’re going to have some extra time on your hands. Don’t know what to do? Well here’s an idea – catch up on these shows you’ve been missing out on! Trust me, you’ll be binging these none stop. As a millennial in this day and age, it’s hard to find shows that depict exact what busy life is like. We’ve got you covered, because if you’re not watching The Bold Type and Good Trouble, you’re missing out!
Good Trouble is a show I’m sure you’ve heard about but have avoided watching. How do I know this? Well, it’s a spin-off of The Fosters. Everyone loved The Fosters until it ended, right? Everyone also always avoids watching spin-offs. Trust me, I know because I am one of those people. They’re never as good as the original. But, bear with me on this one. Remember Mariana and Callie?
Well, your favorite dynamic duo is back. There’s even some cameos of the family! The best part? Good Trouble is just as good as The Fosters, if not better! While The Fosters focused on current issues, so does Good Trouble but is more relatable because Mariana and Callie are just like us. The show focuses on the favorite sisters post-college and starting their careers. It shows their struggles of moving across country and settling into adulthood, while also being slightly broke. If you think I’m trying to make them sound more relatable than they are, see below.
Callie and Mariana may hate their jobs, but they’re learning how to make it work and how to survive in this new phase of their lives. They’re learning what it’s like to live alone and giving you an insight into what life’s really like, instead of a fantasy bubble. They also still tackle important current issues and that’s why Good Trouble is one of my favorite shows to date. You can catch it on Freeform and Season 2 premieres Tuesday, June 18.
The Bold Type
The Bold Type has a lot in common with Frolic actually. It focuses on what it’s like to work at an all women’s magazine, and also focuses on current issues. I got into The Bold Type last year when I saw the ads everywhere. Remember this one?
Yup, that’s The Bold Type. It’s honestly such a powerful show and worth all the binging. Like Good Trouble, it focuses on Millennials making it work and living their dreams in the big apple. The show also focuses on a lot of current issues that are important and focuses a lot of women’s rights. Watching one episode of this show will make you feel like the most powerful woman ever. Like seriously. You’ll want to go out and kick ass and do something incredible. These three besties are such trendsetters in the most unbelievable way. It also shows the ups and downs of the millennial lifestyle and trying to make a name for yourself. Plus, it’s got a great cast and it’s got some sexy scenes. You can catch The Bold Type on Tuesdays on Freeform.
What do they have in common?
Both Good Trouble and The Bold Type focus on women in their 20’s starting their life, like any current millennial. As a current college student, I love to watch this show as it helps show the realities of my future in a few years when struggling out there to make it work. But most importantly? They focus on women making it big. Yes, that’s often seen on TV in today’s day and age, but it’s still a big deal. They both show the realities, such as hating your job or not everything always working out in your favor. They both focus on current issues, such as racism, women’s rights, and other issues. These shows are honestly like a guide to the millennial work life. We need shows like this in our lives and I’m so grateful they exist. They both are always raved about in the Twitter universe. Trust me when I say that you’ll fall in love with them.
