User Reviews

 
The quality of Latin American tv shows is improving. Finally, a Latin American product that its main plot is not about drug traffickers.

Very good series. Fast, precise, efficient. Parra in the character of "Chayo" and Tappan in the character of "El Abogado" demonstrate once again why they are two of the most outstanding Latin American actors. Similarly, it is worth highlighting Juan Sebastián Calero as "Sarandino", who is always a good supporting actor who reinforces the plot in the series. The series its stylish and manages to get away from the melodrama and soap opera cliché that characterizes Latin American series. The soundtrack was very well chosen, accompanied by mythical Latin American songs, especially those vallenatos that give more coherence and rhythm to the story, as it accompanies the Valledupar stage. In the same way, it is a pleasure to hear an accent different from that of Medellín or Bogotá on television. I am Puerto Rican and visit Medellin in many occasions and people say to me that the costeño accent is a bit like ours, but I have to say no. However, it was a pleasure to see that they transferred that "conflict" between the "cachacos" and the "costeños" in a peculiar way and, even, in a humorous way. Anyway, good series, which reflects another Latin American story that moves away from the typical "narco". Well played by Netflix.
