One of the best Medical Dramas ever made
14 September 2014 | by moacirneto1See all my reviews

One could say it's an irony when I call this a "medical" drama, given the technical mistakes (and, as a medical student, I can assure you, there are a LOT of them in the show). Despite of that, I give "Polseres Vermellas" a 9 out of 10, because it's the only show that has ever made me feel like I'm really inside the hospital (way different than "House" or "Grey's Anatomy"). The sad scenes bring up some memories and emotions I'll never forget. The friendship between the characters flows so naturally as if it had happened in real life. The soundtrack, wow, it's simply incredible. Yes, it has some clichés and some holes in the script, but that comes to a second plan when you have such a good idea developed by such great actors (by the way, Igor Szpakowski (Jordi) and Mikel Iglesias (Ignasio) deserve more notoriety, they're awesome!). Overall, it's not a top quality TV series, but it proves how an innocent production can deeply touch our hearts. Oh, and if you want the best out of it, go for this original version. I've got a bad feeling about the American one. Based on the trailer, it's nothing compared to the Spanish one.
