Greed, Intrigue, and Death, Basic ingredients for a sensational Miniseries
26 May 2004 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Black Octopus - El Pulpo Negro.

Mysterious murders afloat with a common the mark of the Black Octopus. What we know becomes what we don't, what we suspect, false.

Very well written miniseries, as seldom produced Thrillers for T.V.

With a great script, and very good actors that give the story all the energy and veracity needed, this program achieves an attraction too close to an addiction. No other miniseries had me glued to the T.V., not from Argentina nor anywhere else, like this one did.

A true diamond to admire.
