Finally a Spanish TV comedy with subtle sarcasm and an understanding of dramatic irony
The premise follows the example given by "Trinny & Susannah: Boom to Bust"; with Jorge playing himself in scenes from his woeful day to day. He's got economic problems and a tough time getting decent work, but he really ought to be depressed given he is the object of a nonstop stream of thinly veiled as well as direct and open insults.
I doubled over each time a writer or journalist talked too Jorge about his failed career. The repeating references to his lack of culture or any sort of commitment are fantastic.
Most of the dialogues revolve around the expectations and obsessions both public and his family have. Each new encounter, misunderstanding and error in judgment is hysterical.
The dramatic irony that his assistant /agent produces with each breath could have been Gervais' inspiration for the parallel character in "Life's Too Short"; although Jorge's dead weight is credible making it all the funnier. Please make a second series ...
