Elite guarantees an interesting story. [Full review in Spanish]

Elite, full of nuance in its discussions about class, privilege, and sexuality, doesn't have to be relegated to yet another guilty pleasure. Just, please: Watch it with subtitles.

Unlike most high school dramas, the series tempers its over-the-top plot twists with real human emotion by focusing on the kids and how growing up too fast can have devastating consequences. Elite may be the best high school drama on TV.

Sex, drugs, and murder in racy, compelling Spanish import.

Oct 17, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This tantalizing and whipsmart entry to the teen show pantheon proves itself worthy of the spotlight.

If the British version of Skins left a gaping hole in your life, or if you've ever wondered what Mean Girls would be like if someone had actually killed Regina George, look no further: Elite is the hedonistic, bloody romp you've been waiting for.

With Euro-cool style and compelling characters, Elite is trashy, diverting fun.

This new Spanish series is excessive, yes, but it is well directed and has such a great technical approach as well as being very, very entertaining. [Full Review in Spanish]

Elite is deliciously trashy fare in a slick package. And there's more than enough there to hold your interest for a full season.

Oct 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Elite is no masterpiece but is one of those oddly satisfying, binge-worthy curiosities.

    Mostly, the cliché outweighs the intrigue, but the scale shifts enough to make it an entertaining teenage story.

    Bad acting, very bad camerawork and a mediocre story

    Everything I want in a show, and more. Netflix’s new show Elite, is in my opinion, one of their best yet. I definitely recommend it to everyone, there are so many elements of the show, that there’s something for everyone.
