Quite a Long and Winding Road
17 January 2017 | by sunnymusicSee all my reviews

Since I'm citing a Beatles song in the heading of this review I figured I might as well use a movie title, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" to help frame it. As to what is good, there are definitely some exciting scenes to help get you through a series in which there is a lot of rough sledding. I hope you don't mind the sight of blood, however, as the episodes are fairly drenched in it and it figures as an important element in general. Some of the acting is excellent, but some is unbearable, which we'll get to in the "bad" section. The cinematography is also admirable and may make you eager to visit southern Spain, the beautiful spot where all the nasty events of the series take place. And speaking of Spain, the show is an excellent way to practice the language of that beautiful country, although the rapidity with which some characters speak may make you question whether those Spanish classes you took did any good at all. The plot twists are also a plus. Personally, I have trouble following Perry Mason but even the most astute of viewers will probably be surprised how the story develops. Now perhaps I really shouldn't say there is any bad acting as all the actors are skilled and put their hearts into their characters. But what some viewers may find annoying, as I did, is the over the top melodrama, which not only detracts from the story but becomes repetitive, boring and depressing. The length of the first season could be cut by a good couple of hours with some further editing, especially of the histrionics. Also in the bad category are some aspects of the plot. But you said the plot was good, you may justifiably complain. Yes, I did. It is one of the highlights of the series; it holds our attention as we go from point A to Point B and finally come in for a landing at Z. The problem is that there are so many absurdities, coincidences and just plain ridiculous incidents that challenge our belief on the journey. I wrote down a nice list of them but in order not to tax your patience will mention just a couple, leaving out the characters' names so as not to risk spoiling anything: a man crosses the street with the intent to kill, carrying a gun in his hand the whole time, resulting in his being stopped. Couldn't he have put it in his pocket until he reached his potential victim? People search for a body with no clue as to where to start digging until a stray dog happens to pass by and start sniffing around. A daughter tells her mother her birthday is coming up and the mother expresses surprise. OK, that's enough. They don't make much sense out of context, anyway. You really have to be there. Finally, the ugly. There are many beastly people and by the end of the season you may be eager not to see their mugs anymore. I certainly felt that way and couldn't wait for the season to finish but found myself unable to quit because I just had to find out how it all ends. Which it finally did, and, dear viewer, I don't think you're going to like how it does.
