A coming-of-age story about four bright, street-savvy friends navigating their way through high school in the gritty inner city of South Central Los Angeles. Dealing with the danger of getting their friend out of a gang and friends turning into romance, danger is constant.
James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.
This is one of those shows that could have been more.
The premise of three young women united by their involvement in shoplifting was very good. The show revolves around the lives of these three characters, in a normal teen drama style exposition. The characters are likeable, and the performances were reasonable, but the story ebbs and flows in the personal relationships, without much strong plot points to make a real impact. Its watchable, but it could have been unique, focussing more on their criminal skills, and less on their personal dramas. Deserving of a second season, to see where it goes. But the second season will make or break this show.
