TV series about a high school philosophy teacher, Merlí, who teaches in an original way, and about the students of his class, including his own son, and the relationship, friendship, love, and problems among the students of the class.
The vibrantly art-directed scenes, spicy plot lines, catchy tunes and deliciously colorful characters make this show a feast for the senses. Manolo Caro IS the Mexican Almodovar- irreverent and campy, his stories are graced with juicy, flawed, strong-willed women. Veronica Castro as the matriarch is at once perfectly put together and a perfect mess. You are rooting for her from the moment you meet her. But Cecilia Suarez as the quirky Paulina de la Mora steals the show hands down. She's the glue that keeps the family together, and she does so with elegance, humor, compassion and a whole lotta mischief. Her iconic drawl is both endearing and addictive- watch it in Spanish if you can! I haven't felt this excited about a character since Mary Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin on Weeds.
THANK YOU NETFLIX! Please bring us season 2!
