Loved it to the core.
31 October 2018 | by sam-49779See all my reviews

I have never watched Spanish language dramas ever before. I am die hard reality TV fan. While browsing Netflix and running out of options this show popped up as recommendation. I just clicked on it out of boredom with no intention of watching even 10 mins of show as. I hate to read subtitles and this was long series and I was sure I was not going through. I watched 5 mins of the show and was glued, I am. Intrigued. I enjoyed this series thoroughly. It has element of all human emotions and relation. Love, friendships, betrayal, death, drugs, bisexuality. I wont lie but I cried through the series more than few times. I loved the relationships Theresa held with her Russian friend, with patty, with colejo (hope that's her name), with pote.i finished this series in 3 days. I was binge watching like there wont be tomorrow. I didn't cook on Sunday and ordered pizza as I was hooked to the screen. You won't regret watching it, give it a shot!!
