La Casa de Papel AKA Money Heist - Review

Ohh…where do I start?

No words can introduce the genius mastery of La casa de Papel or if you don’t understand Spanish, Money Heist.
Picture this.

A brilliant Professor (ALVARO MORTE) comes up with a grand master plan to execute the greatest money heist in history.

He picks 8 specialist criminals who don’t have much to lose and whose skills will come handy in pulling off the heist.  But, this is no ordinary heist.  Their purpose is to enter the Royal Mint of Spain (not to steal what’s there), but print their own untraceable money (2.4 Euros in total) over a couple of days, with the help of their hostages.
The Professor takes them through a 5 month intensive training, ensuring that there’ll be no loose ends, and in case of any, it’ll be handled.  He’s the guy who has a back-up plan to the back-up plan.

Also, the eight have to adhere to strict rules.  Like not asking personal questions or  having  relations with each other, including knowing each other’s real names.  And so, each has to take a city name:

They are:

 MOSCOW - Paco Tous
DENVER - Jaime Lorente
OSLO - Roberto Garcia Ruiz
HELSINKI - Darko Peric
TOKYO - Ursula Corbero
BERLIN - Pedro Alonso
RIO - Miguel Herran
NAIROBI - Alba Flores

Yes, you read that right.  Nairobi.  And did I say that she is my favourite?  Though I LOVE Denver’s laugh more!
According to Netflix, La casa de Papel is the most watched non-English language series ever.

In case you don’t understand Spanish and don’t want to miss the action while reading the subtitles, you can easily activate the English Audio and enjoy.

What do you think will happen in Season 3, and who's your favourite actor?
