Just catching up with this show and working my way across Spanish,
still loving every second.
After Gonzalos' wife is killed he becomes a hero for his people. interesting, full of action and a good view of the amazing "Siglo De Oro" of Spain. there are few things that might now be accurate, still some of them will bother you while most of them you pay no attention to, there's something for everyone intrigue, deceit, great action scenes and a great story.
for many is going to be a new El Zorro but its so much better, i've seen kids excited about this show that can't speak five words in Spanish. you have to watch it to enjoy it, you have to enjoy it to understand it, you have to understand it to love it.
and I love it already
I recognise the effort of putting all of this together in a country
like Spain, where budgets are far more limited than in the US or UK,
for example. This said, there's little more that would attract me to
spend time in front of my tely. Dialogs, attitudes (male & female, but
specially this last one), and of course details in weaponry, costumes
and set in general, are in a clashing anachronism with what they intend
to represent. The Spanish language used here corresponds more with 21st
century urban slang than something remotely close to the wonderfully
rich "Siglo de Oro"-Golden century-; same things could be said to the
characters, where, except for their garments, one can find dynamic 2010
women, and very open-minded 16th Century Spanish men.
Unfortunately, Hispania - A brand new historic series, taking place at the time of the Roman Empire-, follows the same trail.
