more than a series
27 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

or, more exactly, a special one. for the wise manner to present cases and dramas and radio station life. for the science to define an entire state of duty, passion and contact with near reality in the most precise, convincing way. the music, the acting, the story, the stories, all are great for the courage and science to give the right show about vulnerabilities, devotion, doubts and the importance of the life near you. and , in fact, this is the detail who transforms "Midnight Caller" in more than a real good series.
