Don't get me wrong, I quite like Spanish police series, on the whole. It's something that Spanish TV can do in a manner that passes for entertainment. Some of them are even pretty damn reasonable. However, they always have something that messes the whole thing up. At the moment I am two episodes in with this, so perhaps I am jumping the gun here. And, yes! A couple of things I could see coming from miles away. But, and it's a very important "but," this little series could wipe the floor with most Yank cop shows and even a couple of British ones. It seems slighlty reminiscent of Line of Duty but, so far, not as so completely unbelievable. I mean, given Spanish TV's record for gritty realism, this is quite an achievment. For exmaple, La Casa de Papel, as entertaining as it is, is complete and utter toss! Line of duty is pretty daft but it doesn't go in for the comedic antics of that show that wear thin after the first few episodes. I am really surprised that companies like Netflix, the BBC, HBO or even Amazon are not all over this. Truly brilliant! Hats off to everybody involved in this. To the makers of this show, by the way, do yoursleves a favour, sell this thing to some big expensive TV network. This should be much bigger than La Casa de Papel.
