Enjoyable light TV
10 October 2006 | by tonupthomas-1See all my reviews

Whilst it is simplistic, it is refreshingly so. The teenagers problems and peccadilloes are not the only focus, the staff share the limelight, and their lives are no less trouble free. The setting, a school of performing arts in Madrid, is ideal as each episode has several energetic dance routines. And the Madrid locations shots look great - the routine inside the Reina Sofia was an awesome idea, and was breathtaking. Also occasionally shown is the other side of Madrid, such as Pedro's mad dash across the city in the 1st episode, after sleeping rough. It's a beautiful city, but it can be a tough one too.

So, switch the old brain off for a while, drop the critical faculties, and enjoy this unusual television series:- the addition of beautiful actresses such as Natalia Millan, Toni Acosta and the awe-inspiring Monica Cruz guarantees a feast for the eyes, and the wild and fast moving plot lines always leave you desperate for more.

I actually learned a lot of my Spanish for this show... joder, coño......
