Storyline

Edu is a young man above all suspicion: handsome, smart, sensitive, and a dedicated boyfriend. However, his perfect man appearance is simply a mask that covers up his fearsome personality: a dangerous psychopath, behind a number of crimes that have caught the police's attention. A cold, conniving, and callous criminal; a serial killer who kills purely out of pleasure. In order to test investigators, Edu deliberately leaves clues, and thus devises an intense mind game, a psychological thriller. It becomes a question of honor for the police taskforce to uncover the true identity of a killer and the way he commits his crimes.

Great Series Falls Apart and Dies

This series was a real binge-watch edgy fast paced police/serial killer drama/thriller. Unfortunately, it seems to slam on the brakes at episode 10. Suddenly everything gets slowed down. Long shots, lingering pauses, unnecessary dialogue, new characters that don't add anything to the story.

Episode 11-13 (conclusion) are completely out of pace with the rest of the series. The show frantically runs around but doesn't really do much. Now you're beginning to suspect that they're just filling time. By the 12th & 13th episodes you're yelling at your TV because it becomes stupid and impossible to buy into any more. They rely on flashbacks to fill time. Long scenes of dialogue that don't add anything to the story.

Then it sort of tuns into a soap opera. (WTF?)

It genuinely appears as though the writers just could not figure out how to end the show, so we get THREE ambiguous endings.

There's an extended scene that looks like a bad rock video from 1980's MTV. Finally the thing ends, and you sit there and say REALLY? Is that REALLY how they're going to 'end' the show?

There were quite a few characters in the story who contributed absolutely nothing to the story. Some of them had no acting skills at all.

Technical problems: It's very obvious that this show had very little budget to work with. The mic placements were bad, the sound effects were actually comical at times because they didn't match the scene. For example, in one scene they send a drone to search for someone lost in the woods. The sound they used for the drone engine was a WWII B52 bomber. In another scene, a young girl drives her car onto a curb going about 10mph. The sound effect was of a major car accident with screeching tires and smashing glass.

Camera crew equipment was visible in a few scenes, some of the sets looked like the paint was still wet, other sites looked like high school drama class. One of the exterior scenes that was supposed to be a huge mansion was obviously an office building shot from the rear.

Finally, the music score was scream-o death metal, which did not fit at all with the show in any way. And they only had about 5 short loops to work with, so it sounded like a skipping record sometimes.

Sorry, I really loved the first 9 episodes. They could have easily wrapped it up at ten episodes. They could chop 11-13 and it would have been the same show, but tighter.

I can honestly say I've never watched a TV series completely fall apart like this before. It was embarrassing, and I can't imagine the actors were pleased with the 'ending(s)'.
