The six policemen believe that they are innocent and that their bosses will support them, but on the other side of the city, an Internal Affairs team begins an investigation.

[Movistar +] A dynamic, emphatic, forceful series about the police and the ins and outs of corruption. It is a production made with talent, sequence shots that take your breath away. Sorogoyen is a master at managing the internal tension of a scene, at portraying the emotional turmoil of the characters. Sustained in a script that is armed with a very solid structure, it is five hours of pure cinema.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
