News & Interviews for Elite: Season 1
It's twisty and sexy, teeming with clandestine crimes and clandestine rendezvous, but the show is also genuinely interested in the psyche of the ambitious teen-ager.
Elite is not pushing new boundaries in television... In spite of that - or more likely because of it! - its commitment to breakneck melodrama is undeniably enjoyable.
"Élite"is deliciously trashy and gloriously glossy. The show straddles the line between being an all-out soap opera about unruly sexual desires and a socially conscious, nail-biting thriller about wealth inequality.
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.
This tantalizing and whipsmart entry to the teen show pantheon proves itself worthy of the spotlight.
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.
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]
Audience Reviews for Elite: Season 1
Feb 27, 2021Es una serie que aparte de no innovar en historia, tiene personajes clichés y que funcionan por el morbo, aparte de que la conclusión es bastante mala y esperable
Jan 14, 2021Es una espiral de entretenimiento total con una historia intrigante y personajes divertidos.
Jan 09, 2021Great show for easy and entertaining viewing complimented by strong performances and a fast moving plot.
Jan 07, 2021(Español / English) La serie Elite (T1) no deja de ser una telenovela coral de ambiente sofisticado, con personajes muy marcados y algo esquemáticos y un guión en general previsible y algo básico en el planteo y resolución de sus conflictos (problema de la mayoría de las ficciones españolas actuales) y que incurre en repeticiones, con personajes que se distancian y se reacercan cíclicamente. Sus tramas secundarias son más interesantes que la principal y el elemento policial se desdibuja permanentemente. La adolescencia es un periodo de personas incompletas y aún limitadas, en permente transformación. Y pareciera que esa limitación de los personajes impregnara a la serie como realización. _______ The Elite series (S1) is still a choral soap opera with a sophisticated atmosphere, with very marked and somewhat schematic characters and a generally predictable script and something basic in the approach and resolution of its conflicts (a problem in most Spanish fictions current) and that incurs in repetitions, with characters who distance themselves and reacquaint themselves cyclically. Its subplots and secondary characters are more interesting than the main one and the police element is permanently blurred. Adolescence is a period of incomplete and still limited people, in permanent transformation. And it seems that this limitation of the characters permeated the series as a realization. ______________ La llegada de tres becarios a un muy caro colegio privado español altera el statu quo e inicialmente genera resistencias entre su alumnado. La serie es un largo flash back a partir de un asesinato. Tenemos conflicto de clases, personajes gays, personajes musulmanes de origen inmigrante, chicas malvadas, chicas rebeldes, chicos pesados, corrupción, mucho desnudo masculino al comienzo para fijar audiencia, bastante sexo, adultos casi ausentes en la trama y de vez en cuando algún buen diálogo o frase bien ubicados. La serie Elite no deja de ser una telenovela coral de ambiente sofisticado, con personajes muy marcados y algo esquemáticos y un guión en general previsible y algo básico en el planteo y resolución de sus conflictos (problema de la mayoría de las ficciones españolas actuales) y que incurre en repeticiones, con personajes que se distancian y se reacercan cíclicamente. Si bien se sigue con interés (y por momentos con cierta involuntaria diversión) además de los apuntados la serie presenta dos problemas: el elemento policial se olvidaría constantemente si no fuera por las recurrentes escenas de los interrogatorios policiales (muy parecidas entre sí) y las tramas secundarias son más interesantes que la principal, acaso por ser más creíbles y frescas y por estar mejor actuadas. De este modo la serie se encamina a una conclusión que sí resulta coherente y, si se quiere, realista. La adolescencia es un periodo de personas incompletas y aún limitadas, en permanente transformación. Y pareciera que esa limitación de los personajes impregnara a la serie como realización en lugar de potenciarla. ________________ The arrival of three scholarship holders to a very expensive Spanish private school alters the status quo and initially generates resistance among its students. The series is a long flash back from a murder. We have class conflict, gay characters, Muslim characters of immigrant origin, evil girls, rebellious girls, heavy boys, corruption, a lot of male nudity at the beginning to set the audience, a lot of sex, adults almost absent in the plot and from time to time some good well placed dialogue or phrase. The Elite series continues to be a choral soap opera with a sophisticated atmosphere, with very marked and somewhat schematic characters and a generally predictable script and something basic in the approach and resolution of its conflicts (a problem in most current Spanish fictions) and that incurs in repetitions, with characters distancing and reacquainting themselves cyclically. Although it is followed with interest (and at times with some involuntary amusement) in addition to those mentioned, the series presents two problems: the police element would be constantly forgotten if it were not for the recurring scenes of police interrogations (very similar to each other) and the Subplots are more interesting than the main one, perhaps because they are more credible and fresh and because they are better acted. In this way, the series leads to a conclusion that is coherent and, if you like, realistic. Adolescence is a period of incomplete and still limited people, in permanent transformation. And it seems that this limitation of the characters permeated the series as a realization instead of enhancing it.
Jan 04, 2021PURE GARBAGE. UNORIGINAL. OVERSEXED. I looked up the rating for this show and it says "14." I would never let my 14 year old watch this sex fest. The actors are not teenagers (though that's typical in these kinds of shows/films) but they are so oversexualized. It's too much for young viewers and gives both young men and women the wrong introduction to sex. I'm all for being a sexual being, but at the appropriate age. This show should be set in the mid-20s to low-30s. The fact that it's set in "high school" is trite and really shows the writers have a lack of imagination. The mystery portion of the show seems to be secondary to the sex, drugs, and alcohol. I had to look up the legal drinking age in Spain and it's 18. This show has been on for 3 years and they're always ordering drinks like they've been doing it for years (very specific orders like Negronis which, are by most standards, old fashioned). Even the "conservative" uniforms the female students wear include skirts that barely cover their crotches. I thought I would like this show because I'm a huge fan of Money Heist and several of the actors in that show are in this one (Rio, Denver, and Marina) all of whom are young in Money Heist, but not *that* young, with possible exception to Marina. Honestly, I'm disappointed with Netflix. I don't know how trash like this gets a green light while other much more well-written and unique shows (this one is formulaic) get the axe after 2 seasons because the algorithm is programmed only to do shows that bring in new subscribers (rather than keeping the current base satisfied with a service that continues to increase their price — soon, to be the most expensive of all the streaming platforms). This appears to be a gasp for young viewers and it's completely in appropriate. It should be rated MA. Shame on you Netflix, this is basically soft porn set in a high school environment. Barf!
Nov 20, 2020Very very good is awwesome!

Aug 16, 2020Excellent show mainly due its perfect/classy cast, interesting genre - teen drama and murder mystery and its Ending! It perfectly throws light on how wealth inequality exists and the people at bottom of the wealth pyramid always suffer. Perfect amalgamation of suspense, sex, and sentiments. Highly recommended show!!
