Spanish soap set in late-1920s Madrid is worth a binge.

Sometimes you just want to zone out and watch something that's soapy, a little ridiculous, and a lot of fun. If that's what you're in the mood for, Netflix's latest international original needs to be your next binge.

In the end, what Netflix gives us is a telenovela to enjoy... as opposed to the type of content we have become accustomed to that keeps us up all night. [Full review in Spanish]

    Terrible show, worst movie music ever, ridiculous situations, pathetic drama

    Wrapping up Season 1. Easy viewing. A little soap opera-ish. Still worth viewing. The modern day background music can be distracting. I wonder if it was dubbed in for the American audience since it is subtitled in english.

    I am really enjoying this series so far. The main actresses are great, as is the the story line and plots. The music is a bit off putting but I can live with it as far as the series is as good as it is.

    Very good, quality production, entertaining telenovela story line. Minus ones star for the music. Why not period appropriate music? What they chose is distracting and unenjoyable. It's the playlist from a teenager's clothing store at the mall. Pretty sure 14 year olds are not watching this show so it was a bizarre choice.

    I really love this show. The plot lines, the costumes, and the acting all stand out as exceptional. It loses a star with me, however, because of the worst soundtrack I’ve ever heard on any show or movie. It’s not that it is a modern soundtrack with a period show. The problem is that the music is cheesy, tacky, and does not match the scenes in most places. For example, there are scenes at a club, where performers dance on stage. The beat of the music does not even align with the dance beats. Modern alt sappy crooning is played over the actors’ dialogue. It’s distracting and jarring, and belong in a cheesy soap or rom-com— not a serious period-piece drama. I am instantly pulled out and distracted from the scenes where this occurs. I have never in my life seen such horrific soundtrack selections. The producers should seriously consider canning whoever is responsible.

    I love this show! It's sexy, smart, dramatic and fun! Loved the last season. Kinda sad that one of my favorite characters might be gone but I will have to see.
