Review: Solidly entertaining for what it is. Think every tenn show you’ve ever seen and add a dash of the Affair or How To Get Away With Murder. It’s melodrama through and through. Pretty teens. Uncaring families. Poor little rich girls and boys. Even poorer poor kids. Nobody is happy in this world. Somebody winds up dead. Somebody’s going to jail. You find somebody to love you’d better hang on tooth and nail. The wolf is always at the door.
It deals with some real issues: notably Islamaphobia and the repressive nature of fundamentalism, coming out of the closet, open relationships and threesomes, HIV and the seeming impossibility of reinventing yourself in highschool. All hormones, no autonomy. Such is life.
Well worth a binge watch if you’re stuck inside on a rainy day. You won’t find yourself transfixed but you will want to know what happens next. The writing felt a little stale but of course translations and voiceovers don’t always capture the rhythm of the original dialogue. Still something tells me the writer isn’t Spain’s answer to Shondre Rhimes or Aaron Sorkin
