Storyline

Javier is going through a bad patch: he can hardly make it to the end of the month, his business of T-shirts with de-motivational slogans is not quite getting the attention, and his relationship with Lola is shacking. The least thing he needed was for an alien to fall on him and transfer his powers to him before dying.

Surprisingly entertaining and fun
9 January 2020 | by ltnfernandesSee all my reviews

Saw the trailer and gave it a go, but was not expecting too much, because of the low budget production that becomes evident after seeing the trailer. It turns out that the show is very very good. I ended up watching the 5 first episodes in a row. The acting is very good (mainly from the main character), and the simplicity of the environment along with the writing is excellent. Very refreshing show within a story that is not new (a normal guy that ends up with powers), which makes even more relevant the great writing here. I genuinely laugh a lot, which is something very hard to find (at least for me) on most of the comedy shows from last years ( and some with high budgets).
