Nothing special

5/10
Author: newland80 from Vitoria, Spain
27 September 2004

"Los 80" was a highly anticipated series at the time of its initial release due to the strong publicity campaign that preceded it. On the other hand, great actors such as José Coronado and Aitana Sánchez Gijón were in it, so what could go wrong?

It's not that the series is bad, in fact it is nearly perfect technically, but it lacks the charm and charisma of other similar "nostalgic" series (American "Wonder years" or Spanish "Cuéntame" to name two clear examples). Neither Coronado and Sanchez Gijón nor Félix Gómez and Bea Segura work as screen couples, so the romantic subplots are somewhat affected and definitely unbelievable.

As usual with Spanish series, the supporting cast is a delight to watch. In this case it is specially remarkable, since most of them are relative unknowns (Marisol Membrillo, Lilian Caro, Antonio de la Torre).

It is a shame this series turned out to be such a disappointment, since I really wanted this to be good. Maybe it will get better with time, but they should really shift the focus from the uninteresting leading characters and boost the supporting ones.

Overall rating: 6/10
