Storyline

1977. Torremolinos, Málaga (Andalusia, south to Spain). In a country that it's opening its doors to the world with The Spanish Transition after General Franco's death in 1975, four police detectives meet in the Costa del Sol to fight the new and recently installed drug trafficking that it's operating in the zone. They are Bruno, a veteran cop recent father of his first child with his wife Charo, brother of the 10 years younger Vicky, a fragile and free-spirited teen who despises him and their mother Alicia, and a hero fallen on disgrace by his unorthodox methods after an incident with his former boss Inspector Cifuentes; Leo, a high-class gentleman son of a retired general of dictatorship's days who tries to find his own way outside the family legacy; Terrón, a young man from a low-class family and streetwise agent wanting to clean the streets where he grew up; and Martín, a strategist and thoughtful detective more interested to dismantle the origin of the big drug traffickers instead...

"Costa Del Sol" - Worthy of your time.
9 January 2021 | by jaybizmanSee all my reviews

Imagine a TV Series, filmed in 2019, that depicts a handful of Spanish Police officers tracking drug traffickers in southern Spain, circa 1975... Torremolinos, to be precise. One series, 13 one-hour episodes. It must have taken a massive effort to get all the (even) smallest details correct.

The disco dancers were in outfits from back then, the mens clothing had the big ol' wide collars and the cars... were accurate, even down to their 'MA' (Malaga) license plates.

Standout (to me) was the gorgeous 'Sara Salamo' (La Buhita - The Owl), who has to be one of the most beautiful Women in Spain - and she can act too.

Of course there is much mayhem, dealers in "hashish" and a lot of fights, shootings and smoking. The ending is sufficiently on tenterhooks to imagine a Series Two - let's see.

The event has been dubbed in English, so no need for subs, and I rate it 9/10.
