I believe when it comes to any dramas, I have a great eye for the good series to the incredible dramas.
I am STUNNED by the negative reviews pertaining to season two. While I REALLY feel this series deserves a 9, I cant get past or forgive the writers for being overzealous not substituting the Russians. Yeah sure, some scenes spoken in Russian you can get a feel for with the context surrounding the scene, but with most, you are just watching Telemundo.
However, the reason s1 is a solid 10 is because these same writers, that have wrote respectful series before, wrote the hell out of it resulting in EVERY episode captivating.
It felt so fresh. A new breathe with what we've become accustomed to watching. The characters are written beautifully in this series but the BEST attribute to this shows depth is it's all out for EVERY character being killed etc.
Not many showrunners have the guts that this series does having NO PROBLEM killing off important people that you will care about. All shows that consist of this kind of fearless writing are most likely excellent shows.
The twists and turns, of course but again, a fresh breathe at how they capture and execute everything so flawlessly, more so s1.
S1 is a 10. S2 in all honesty is no where near as bad as people are saying. Sure, everything is subjective but please listen to me and watch this series because you will be lost for three days in a binge attack.
Only problem is unfortunately not a good platform picked this up, despite its wonderful production, audience network sucks ass bc many people, most, do not have access to it bc why would you. Their best series are Kingdom, one of my personal fav series, and Condor.
William Hurt was brilliant as always and Max Irons is a savage and the new modern day Ryan Phillippe. Incredible acting across the board.
This series is amazing please dont miss out!
