My sister and I used to joke that streaming services will never get a dime from us. We are, after all, skilled in the art of searching and downloading torrents. I guess that proclamation was bound to backfire at some point. I caved in and signed up for a membership when Netflix added one of my favorite chick flicks to its catalog recently. I am now officially sucked into the Netflix black hole with no plans of ever coming out. I guess it’s time to invest on a SmartTV this year?😂
I wouldn’t mind watching Élite in full HD. This Spanish web series is a campy, addictive take on teen dramas with a dash of murder mystery on the sidelines. The first season was so good I finished all 8 episodes over a weekend. That’s a feat considering I’m not one who normally binge-watches.
It’s hard to pinpoint what kept me glued each episode. Was it the show’s gorgeous and racially diverse cast? Or was it their brave, jaw-dropping approach on sensitive issues (HIV, LGBT, drugs… among others) involving the youth these days? Either way, you know I have it bad for a series when I invest hours going through the cast’s social media accounts.
I’m very excited to see where the plot takes the remaining characters after the murder-mystery of Season 1. Élite, after all, is not for the faint of heart.
