TV series about a high school philosophy teacher, Merlí, who teaches in an original way, and about the students of his class, including his own son, and the relationship, friendship, love, and problems among the students of the class.
Dicte is a dedicated reporter and refuses to give up before she has her story. Her stubbornes gives her problems immediately with the policeman John Wagner, and they often get into clashes with each other.
Finding out that their husbands are not just work partners, but have also been romantically involved for the last twenty years, two women with an already strained relationship try to cope with the circumstances together.
I fell head over heels for this show. I watch and read a lot of UK and Scandinavian stuff and usually find it more interesting than US TV. I found "Rita" by accident and liked it immediately..possibly because I taught school for awhile and know what a hard job it is. I found the school issues totally plausible and loved Rita's determination to help her students, even to her own detriment. I binged watched this show to the point of dreaming about the characters. The lead actress is really good....I loved just watching her but liked the writing too. Seeing "gay" being handled as no big deal was very refreshing. I just finished season 3 today and am already in withdrawal. More! I need more! I am a 70 year old grandmother who likes good solid stories. I hope they add more seasons of this show.
