Oh my... It was good!
I had doubts at the beginning because Italian fiction is usually bad. But L'alligatore has solid pillars to substain it: it's taken from the book series by Massimo Carlotto with the same name, it's shooted in the beautiful Padova especially in the splendid and peculiar countryside, the cast is pretty good especially Thomas Trabacchi that plays a trigger-happy smuggler with a heart of gold and music perfectly feets the mood of the main character and the evolving of story. First episode seems a bit 'light' but it's just the beginning of everything and by the third episode I realized how moving and immersive was the story. There is a main background plot that goes behind the entire series and 4 'chapters' divided in two episodes each. In conclusion: if you like solid storytelling, good music, passion, entanglements, love, borderline detectives and redemption you should definitely give it a try.
