According to Thebird (4/5):

I just finished this mini series and I have to say I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is really gloomy and heavy. The girl who plays is very surprising, as is her brother. You can’t sympathize with the characters. Admittedly, the pace is very slow, but as long as we are engrossed in the story and want to know the outcome, it is tolerable.

According to Hesley (3.5/5):

Worth watching if you like psychological thrillers. The atmosphere is really heavy and heavy. But I find it an uneven series. While I loved the beginning, which instantly draws the viewer in, I found the middle of the series to be somewhat sluggish. I am quite disappointed with the simple and expected ending when I was hoping for a story.”

According to Yoann M (1/5):

I don’t understand how a good idea can be so poorly executed. So many inconsistencies in character behavior and ridiculous situations that are inevitable.”

The most read and sold manga in the world, it currently has over 100 volumes that have been adapted into an anime that has exceeded 1,000 episodes. When Netflix won back the rights to a live-action One Piece series, the bet was bold…

The platform managed to produce a series faithful to Eiichiro Oda’s manga and find young actors who all agreed. Add to that a good dose of adventure, friendship and a little sense of humor.

An excellent erotic detective thriller, rich in suspense and twists. Constant tension and rhythmic performance. The whole thing is a joy to follow and the sublime Ursula CORBERO (La Casa de Papel) is very believable. A well done and very entertaining Spanish mini-series.

A good Spanish series that could have ended in 4 episodes. The plot is good, but there is a lot of length. Ursula Corbero is as evil as she is beautiful.

A story of love, sex, deception against the backdrop of a police thriller. Flawless photography, good actors, good production, but in the end it remains another Télé Nova, very good quality for fans of the genre.
