Could have been interesting...
Alithinoi Erotes was an attempt to make a sexy series with plenty of eroticism. Each episode stands on its own with a unique story its time, a couple of sex scenes, a mostly dramatic plot (there were some comedic ones too) and that's it.
That's it... so I ask you, the potential viewer, how long do you think it would take you to get bored of this repetitive structure? It is 40+ plus episodes of the same thing! Introduction to cahrecters - first sex scenes - happy together - sex scene - dramatic development - sex scene - and a blunt finish.
But the most important question is: are these episodes any good? The plots are cliche and overplayed. They lack real drama or sympathy for the character (or when they do, it's kills off the erotic vibe). Personally, I believe they shouldn't have tried so much. Just focus on the sexy scenes and make them work, make them slower, larger.
The sex scenes which are supposed to be the highlight of each episodes are dark for some reason (and by dark, I mean there is literally no light in the room, you can barely see anything), too basic, lack passion or some necessary kinkiness. Average and only served as a 'shock' to more conservative Greek viewers who aren't used to see Greek celebrities going at it naked.
Not sexy at all...
