Great execution for a "The Fosters" spin-off
After the successful TV show "The Fosters" came to an end, this new show brings Callie and Mariana to Los Angeles. As you may know, the finale of "The Fosters" already jumped a few years forward and introduced Callie and Mariana as recent graduates who were planning on starting their careers in L.A. .
While this new show might try to present the lead characters in a more mature light, the initial steps of both Callie and Mariana in their new professional setting are still cluttered with some of their old habits. After their degrees and life-forming years at university, you can't really estimate how advanced Callie and Mariana could behave because many of their previous remnants from "The Fosters" show are still in their daily lives - like dating/boys or their lively dynamic with their mothers.
One aspect, their unbound sisterly love and support for each other, is still as strong as before and carries over their belief that family always comes first.
Whether "Good Trouble" will be able to allow Callie and Mariana to mature beyond their foster years remains to be seen. The production quality, the new setting and promising story line are certainly a great start.
