The summer of ‘19 came with a lot of good movies and series to watch, and we can’t complain. But we all know binge watching one thing and really admiring it are absolutely two different feelings in today’s world. Elodie, a teenager who has apparently experienced the real harshness in life after she lost her mother is a real shoplifter out of self-pity. With absolutely no friends in the new school and city, she happens to meet familiar faces in a shoplifters anonymous group.
Moe, Tabitha, and Elodie are three musketeers in action who come from different backgrounds, have different struggles yet manage to strike a chord together. But if you really look at it, the only real connection between them is the common desire to shoplift. No one has an admiration (yet since I have only watched a few episodes and it could too soon to judge) for anyone in the group and are actually go-to people only in times when all the other personal commitments fail. With a show like this that makes me ponder about the hectic lives these days and the struggle to keep up with friends for social status, it is hard to not think of it as a 21st century show of Friends. But on the contrary, it may not be.
As far as the storyline is concerned, it is quite basic, nothing refreshing. And the acting? I am no casting director but as a viewer, the show has failed to keep me hooked on to it like a religious follower.
What about you? Have you watched Trinkets yet? Please do let me know in the comments below so that we can come to a conclusion about the real deal of the show and how far or close is it from the other friendship-loving series.
