Juan José Ballesta,
Something evil is happening in the hidden passageways under the remote, exclusive Black Lagoon Boarding School. (You'd think the name would tip people off, wouldn't you?) A group of intrepid Spanish high schoolers risk their lives to investigate three decades' worth of mayhem.
The tone veers from suspense to sentimentality, from dramedy to melodrama. The plot twists are certainly complicated, to the point where they're a bit much after a while -- how much evildoing can possibly go on in one school? But as teen adventure serials go, it's pretty addictive.
A friend from Spain showed me a few episodes because he knows I like some of the actors in the cast: the wonderful Amparo Baró, formerly of "Siete vidas"; the versatile Luis Merlo, formerly of "Aquí no hay quien viva"; and singer/dancer/actress Natalia Millán, formerly of "Un paso adelante," who also starred on stage in the 2005-2006 Spanish revival of "Cabaret." The actors who play the kids, none of whom I'd heard of before, are also fantastic.
