During the event strategy of Greyhounds can have been talked about Succession as many occasions as within the articles that discuss this new Movistar+ sequence. Here, for instance. And nothing occurs. May certainly one of your fashions be One of the very best sequence in historical past It's not one thing to be ashamed of. Nothing to cover. Television fiction is a market of traits, of leaders and followers. During the following seasons we’ll see extra followers of Succession. And nothing occurs.

Greyhounds adjustments the Roys' multinational leisure firm for the Somarribas' meals firm. They are the house owners and administrators of Galgo. They make cookies, breakfast cereals and buns. Like any household enterprise, Galgo is a peculiar firm. Quoting freely from Thick, household companies are every sad in their very own manner. Otherwise they are usually, a minimum of on tv, fairly related: wealthy, in depth, with comedian satellites and a bit hypocritical. Breeding floor for extremely entertaining and glamorous sequence.

Greyhounds It is each issues. Written by Francisco Kosterlitz, Clara Roquet, Luca Carballal and Pablo Remn and with a really colourful forged, this drama delivers precisely what it guarantees. Its originality lies in not desperately making an attempt to be unique. Ah Galgos is, in his personal manner, humble: he is aware of what sequence it’s and he cares about being good at it. But being humble just isn’t being poor.

The Somarriba are neither of these two issues. Because even the obvious decency with which Carmina (Adriana Ozores), the matriarch, conducts herself, she is cracked. We know extra concerning the duplicity of her husband Gonzalo (scar Martínez) and her daughter Blanca (Patricia López Arnaiz). And greater than we’ll know, nicely Greyhounds It takes benefit of the episodic construction very nicely. And the weekly broadcast. As Successionit is a sequence that asks to be seen week by weeka fiction that provides the viewer the masochistic pleasure of being left wanting extra on the finish of every chapter.

In Greyhounds There are household events the place little issues occur (as in Succession), non-public jets (as in Succession), a barely silly son (Jorge Usn, magnfico) and really good garments. There are additionally very Spanish references and localization and creative path work that anchors it to the financial and aesthetic actuality of our nation. I imagine in few households from Spanish sequence greater than the Somarriba household, though it’s made up of faces with loads of their very own id. oh Succession began with a bonus: its actors weren’t practically as well-known on the earth as Adriana Ozores, Luis Bermejo or Patricia López Arniz are in Spain. As the very vindictive Privacy (the place López Arniz was additionally, by the way in which), Greyhounds es aspirational and recognizable. Addictive just like the a lot maligned sugar present in Galgo merchandise and worthy as solely the highly effective mom of a lifelong household is aware of methods to be. Greyhounds It is a lifelong sequence. And that, typically, is precisely what we wish to see. That's already Adriana Ozores in cost, in fact.
