Bottom Line: Shot in black and white and dripping style Girltrash is a worthy entrant into the action web series market even if it relies a little too heavily on recaps and flashbacks to fill up its rather short running time of under four minutes.
GIRLTRASH! is the story of three hapless chicks getting by any way they can. Tyler and Daisy are small-time criminals and best buds. Their friendship is put to the test when Tyler is seduced by the two-timing temptress, LouAnne. When LouAnne double-crosses Tyler and Daisy by stealing money from the local Kingpin, Tyler and Daisy are thrown into a world of shit. They need to find the money and LouAnne before they turn up dead… or worse.
Created by Angela Robinson (The L Word, Hung, D.E.B.S.), the 10 original webisodes premiered online weekly, to overwhelming success. It was recently announced that the Girltrash! saga would be making the leap from webisodes… to movie, with filming underway in December 2009.
With great visual style and dialogue that is snappy and silly without being grating, Girltrash sweats cool. (Style 4.5)
Despite some minor pacing issues, the story is solid and satisfying. (Storytelling 5)
When your run length is often less than 3 minutes, you really should not spend 20 seconds of your time doing recaps. What makes this even more frustrating is that by time you get to the meat of the show (which is really fun) they’re just about ready to roll ending credits. (Pacing 2.5)
This show feels a lot like Thelma and Louise with tighter jeans and spikier hair, which works really, really well it. If nothing else, I can tell you that you have never seen a web series quite like Girltrash. (Novelty 4)
