Miguel Ángel Muñoz,
"Cuenta atrás" is a really good TV series. The direction has his own style, a really dynamic style. The cinematography is quite good (not the typical cinematography of a TV series). The music intensifies the scenes, filling them of action. The scripts aren't the typical police stories. The stories are full of plot turns. You can't imagine what will be the end of the chapter. It's a hard TV series too, full of drama. The cast is quite good, emphasizing the actresses Teresa Hurtado de Ory and Bárbara Lennie (specially the first one).
To sum up, "Cuenta atrás" is a great TV series. Hard, brutal, unpredictable, visceral. You can't miss it.
