Deals with many difficult topics well, doesn't address age gaps appropriately

This show does a great job of addressing several difficult topics in a frank and realistic manner. From an abusive relationship, to a traumatic death, to an absent father, Trinkets shows a group of girls banding together and getting through teenage life. A great bonus is that the main character, Elodie, is queer, and we actually get to see her in a relationship without encountering homophobia. My main complaint is that two of the teenage characters are in relationships with adults, and this isn't really discussed. The relationships seem to be healthy and respectful, but it would still be beneficial to see the characters have a conversation about it. Overall, this is an interesting show with good representation.
