    The masterful director behind classics like The Body (2012) and TheInvisibile Guest (2017, remade as Evaru in Telugu and Badla in Hindi), Oriol Paulo makes his first foray into a thriller series with The Innocent. And he makes the best possible use of the wider canvas available to him, building a breathtaking, nail-biting storyline that has so many layers and twists that it will make your head reel. The Innocent builds up like a layered cake, with additional levels of complexity and intrigue added in each episode as we move at a breakneck speed to a widely unexpected conclusion by episode 8. Mario Casas is expectedly a class act as the main protagonist, Mateo Vidal, a man convicted for involuntary manslaughter after accidentally killing a youngster in a bar brawl. How unexpected complications arise in his life as he tries to rebuild it post his release from jail from the rest of this suspenseful, edge-of-the-seat series. Alexandra Jimenez is terrific as the plucky detective set out against all odds to capture the wrongdoers while Aura Garrido plays all the shades of her multi-faceted character with aplomb. A terrific thriller series to binge on over a weekend. Oriol Paulo continues to thrill and dazzle. Recommended.

    Twisting, convoluted at times, but always watchable especially for Mario Casas who should be cast in every Netflix series moving forward.

    Original, sluggish and certainly not spectacular. A guy regains his freedom following an accidental killing on a night out. Then assumes his wife is cheating and gets himself wound up drawing others into it to help him. Now anyone would know when a guy after so many years is released, they don't instantly have a big house a car etc. Only in America. I just got so bored. There's eerie music, which adds to the hype, just nothing from this upcoming directors series that really amazes.
