Genre: TV series. Thriller. Drama
The series created by Alex Pina has achieved worldwide success, becoming the most famous robbery of fiction in recent years. After the premiere of the last season, Alex Pina returns to the platform with a new series: White lines.
As expected, the expectations of both the public and the critics were quite high. It all starts with the discovery of a mummified corpse in the Almería desert. Everything indicates that it is Axel Collins (Tom Rhys Harries), a DJ who left Manchester with some friends to succeed in Ibiza. Her sister Zoe (Laura Haddock), who believed that her brother had abandoned her 20 years ago, travels to Ibiza in search of answers.
Who killed Axel Collins? That is the question that underpins the entire series.
The story is told through two timelines, using flashbacks to build Axel’s glorious and tragic past. In this way, we discovered with Zoe what happened 20 years ago. We also knew how the protagonist was involved in an atmosphere of parties, sex, drugs, alcohol, violence, and lies.
The main plot is interesting because it follows the whodunit structure. Already in the first chapter, all the characters and secondary plots are presented: that of the youth in the 90s, drug trafficking, the rivalry between the two most powerful families on the island, a police investigation, the Calafat family drama, the life of each of the friends who accompanied Axel to Ibiza, etc.
There are so many secondary plots – some less relevant than others that there comes a point where you forget the important thing is to discover the murderer.
On the other hand, Zoe does not shine as much as she should, because she is not as charismatic and, at certain times, can even be annoying. The rest of the characters are well built, some better than others, loaded with many nuances.
However, White Lines has become one of the best series in several countries, but the director is expecting more success in the future.
