So, starting Trinkets was primarily down to good timing if we’re being honest. I loaded up Netflix with the intention of finding something quick to watch and this show was on the homepage and a trailer for it began to play almost instantly. Now, the trailer alone was enough to get me interested but I also vaguely remembered people talking about it online and the best part was that it’s only 30 minutes (or less) per episode and there’s only 10 of them in total. So not only did it look like it would be a lot of fun but it was also the ‘something quick to watch’ that I had been looking for and I’m so glad I decided to give it a shot.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Trinkets follows three teenagers Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand), Moe (Kiana Madeira), and Tabitha (Quintessa Swindell) who are thrust into each others lives after meeting at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting and quickly become friends. This first season explores that friendship but also follows the girls through their individual lives and personal struggles that involve everything from family to other relationships to school life.

Another season of Good Girls is officially over and now starts the long wait for season 3. Thank goodness we do have another season though because while ‘King’ was definitely an interesting watch, it would have been a pretty painful end for the show. Not everything that we’ve seen so far was concluded and it certainly opened the doors for even more possibilities moving forward.

There was some pretty strong focus on Mary Pat this week and we finally back track to episode 3 of this season where Boomer supposedly “died.” Something always felt off to me about that episode. While I was excited, like most people, that Boomer finally got what was coming to him, it did feel really sudden and never quite sat right. Well, now we know that it’s because Boomer was never really dead and has in fact been hiding out this entire time.

Another season of Riverdale comes to an end and I have to say, it was surprisingly good. I’ve said it before but the pacing and structure this season wasn’t very good. It was incredibly messy and just felt like things were being dragged out. Although, at least we got some kind of conclusion to the G&G content and the Farm content while also finally putting an end to the Black Hood.

This episode was really about the girls trying to sort out some messes and it ended up being one the most hilarious and entertaining episodes of the season as well as continuing to push the narrative forward towards the finale.
Over time, Beth is being sent body parts from Rio that they assume are Boomer’s but she simply ignores them. That whole montage of her putting the parts down the sink was one the most hilarious things I’ve ever seen. I love that it got increasingly worse for her to the point that she stormed right up to him in the park to demand what he wants which really opens the episode up to the messes that the trio are going to have to figure out.

While there is one more episode after this one, this really was the finale to the show we’ve been watching these past few years. It closed up everything we’ve been experiencing while episode 12 is more of a flash forward to show us what life is like in Gotham 10 years into the future.
I actually put off watching these final 2 episodes because I couldn’t bring myself around to do it, however, now that I’ve seen them I have to say that episode 11 was a really simple but great way to finish up the story of Gotham. There wasn’t too much going on and the episode didn’t feel like it jumped around as much as they usually do. It meant that none of it felt particularly rushed or overdone.
