Don't waste your time.
29 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I agree with previous reviewers. Why set a series in Spain where no one speaks with a Spanish accent and the actors look as if they've been roped in from south of the Thames? Unsurprisingly, they all have English provincial accents, which would need subtitles to be understood, especially in America. This killed it for me. Also, Falcon, the so-called "brilliant detective", as he is billed in the promo, looks totally out of it most of the time, and bumbles from scene to scene, swilling some sort of suspicious liquid from a bottle. He has no street-smart skills, as one would expect from a seasoned detective, and gets clobbered by the "baddie" when he should have been paying attention. Basically he is an innocent at large. The first episode left the viewer hanging. The second, is little better. Some reviewers say each episode is 90 minutes, while the version I saw each was less than an hour. In an effort to be generous I ask the question: did a lot of it end up on the cutting room floor? In summary, the plot is convoluted and obscure, and frankly boring. Give it a miss.
