Antonio Durán 'Morris'
Serviceable crime drama with emphasis on melodrama
Despite its many flaws, this is an enjoyable series. The fine acting of Jose Coronado and Pilar Castro keep things cooking with an underlying intensity that a lesser actor - say Àlex Monner with his hand-on-the-hip ridiculous portrayal of the gay son - could not pull off. The camera work and scenery are top notch, making Galicia the real star of the show. Sure, it all tends to get bogged down by over-seriousness and the soap opera tendencies frustrate, but all in all, an involving series that is perfect for binge watching - if you can last through the too-frequent hand wringing personal dramas that at times threaten to bring the whole thing down. (Docked two points for the last episode which resolves nothing but sets the stage for another season. You feel like you've been cheated; the show's makers should be ashamed.)
