  • Élite [Netflix]

    Netflix told me this was 99% aligned with my taste, so I took their word, binge-watched, and had a thoroughly delightful last 24 hours thanks to that decision.

    Has anyone else seen this?

          I wonder how Guzman's family paid for their tuitions if their accounts were empty.

                  Yes, with a few lines in English as it's supposed to be a bilingual school. There's English subtitles, though.

                            I'm on episode 4 so far, show isbreally grower. I hated Huzman in first episode, and I love how they are redeeming him with Nadia.

                            My fave character is probably Clara, just watched that scene where she ran away from her mother's party with her 2 boyfriends to have threesome, kissed them both in front of her, then those two kissed and she flipped middle finger to her mother. EPIC

                              My favorite characters were Guzmán, Nadia, Nano and Marina (even though most people who watched the show HATED her tremendously).

                              Clara was cool too.

                                Well, the only reason to hate Marina is because she slept with both brothers. Just finished episode 5, poor Samuel Marina had to sleep with his brother to recover from that. I don't like Nano tho,

                                So far, Samuel might be the weakest characther for me, he is always so moody and bland, I hope they change him up a bit in S2, he is kinda underused/undeveloped.

                                    Just fi ished 1x06

                                    Episodes are really getting better and better, damn those spanish tv shows, they can really hook you on.

                                    I usually don't care for gay couples in shows but I was rooting for Polo, i found it interesting how he started having crush on Cristiano, and he was so confused, I wish they explored that more.

                                      I already watched the first 2 episodes from Season 2 and it's going great so far.

                                        I finished S1 last night, I really enjoyed this show. After first episode I thought it was okay, but nothing more than that, and with each episode show kept growing on me, just like its characters. I love how the show started with Marian being pure and innocent and Guzman being douche-bag, and it ended with exact opposite, Guzman becoming better and better while Mariana becoming enemy of everyone. I felt bad for Nano, who I disliked first few episodes, but even he grew on me.

                                        I love how stone cold Carla was, I did not expect Polo to be the one doing it, poor guy, I wonder how will everything turn out, they will have to clear Nano ofc, but I don't see Polo going in prison.

                                        I liked the fact that they finally showed Lu's human side, I expect more from her in S2.

                                        I liked Nadia's story too and her standing up to her father.

                                        Since every sentenced started with I, I'm gonna finish it the same, I expect a lot from S2, I hope they use Lu and Samuel more, I hope new characters will be exciting.

                                        I'll wait few weeks for S2, until Serbian subtitles appear online to be honest, not that I need it since I understand Spanish after watching million Spanish speaking shows, but still

                                          I liked both Marina and Guzmán on Season 1.

                                          I already saw 2 episodes from season 2 and I think I liked Guzmán from Season 1 a bit more but I can understand why they made him this way for this season.

                                          For Season 2 I'd say it's interesting, Carla is without a doubt a sociopath (and she's doing great so far in Season 2) but I think Polo might be even more stone cold than she is, I won't spoil you that much but while it seemed like the whole thing took a big toll on Polo (he seemed very weak, broken and a mess) during season 1, I would say now he's actually dealing with "the past" WAY better than Carla is doing during season 2 (so far), which makes him a much bigger sociopath into my eyes.

                                          Just two episodes in and SO FAR she's just the same, nothing has changed that much with her (so far).

                                          Nadia is doing great so far in Season 2.

                                          Just like Lu, Samuel is the same so far, I think he was meant to play the "good boy" (I guess someone had to be the only normal person in that school LOL) but as already revealed in episode 2 there will be a major plot happening with him.

                                          As for new characters, 3 new ones have been introduced so far. I'm not sure if they're going to be as interesting as the ones from the previous season since obviously they're still in early character development but I'm expecting them to grow during further episodes. They're cool so far though.

                                            Oh S2 is out? Let me give it some lil quick strihms.

                                            Hopefully it's just as camp & gay as S1.

                                              Yeah I still liked Marina until the end, despite her questionable decisions. She's gonna be missed in S2. I expected something like that in Guzman's story, after all, death of his sister would've changed him anyway.

                                              Can't wait for this I loved how stone cold she was when she handled watch to her father and he kinda knew that she did something in order to bring it back. I'm excited in Polo's storyline too, I love how Polo and Carla were hardly noticeable in first few episodes, but it turns out whole storyline was actually based on their actions if you think about it.

                                              Nadia is doing great so far in Season 2.

                                              I accidentally read two spoilers, and one is about Samuel's storyline

                                              I hope those new characters actually have a point being there, I hate it when new characters are introduced for nothing, just for being there (like Vanessa Williams in Desperate Housewives).

                                              I never watch anything with English subtitle, we have few websites here where people are volcunrty doing subtitles in Serbian so I always wait

                                              But I don't need it,after watching +10 telenovelas when I was kid and plenty of Spanish series (Un Paso Adelabnte, El Internado, Los Serranos, S.M.S. etc.) I really don't need subtitles, but I'm not gonna rush with S2 because S3 is 12 months away

                                                Well yeah, however I've just read a minor spoiler that kinda explained why Polo was "dealing" with everything better than Carla in this season's first episodes, so things might change later. As I told I've only seen two episodes and it's obviously not accurate to jump on conclusions this early.

                                                One thing I'll say. You wanted Polo to explore more with his sexuality right?, well you'll be happy with that. Barely 2 episodes and he already "explored" more than he did during the entire previous season LOL.

                                                I think we'll see a different side of her because one of the new characters is related to her so it could develope into more unseen background for her character. But SO FAR it hasn't happened, she's the same. I guess it'll happen in the next episodes.

                                                So far they haven't added anything to the table but it's understandable considering I've only seen a couple episodes, I guess they'll grow over the next episodes.

                                                I don't know how the new characters will end up merging into this but I saw (from those who already watched the full season) one of the 3 new characters receiving particular praise.

                                                  Wow, what a terrific season! I liked S1, but I think the show certainly took a few big steps forward for S2!

                                                        Whilst S2 is not as sexy (also we barely saw anything from Christian), possibly because Samuel is just too boyish for me to be interested in his sex scenes, I like how the plot turned out.

                                                        I have no problem with Polo not going to prison, but I do hope Nano doesn't go back either. it's a possibility, as the prosecutors could potentially just drop the case,whether they get to charge anyone or not, especially if Guzman's family believes Polo to be the killer. I think the father is currently the only hold-out right now.

                                                        They arrested Nano based on very filmsy evidence anyway, and they could very well get a testamony from Andes.

                                                        This series is more focused on Nadia's and Omar's transformations, Guzman is practically sidelined, and his ex is really just to push the plot point forward. I don't feel anything about their incest at all, since there's no build up for that half-brother. He just suddenly popped up.

                                                        The story about that poor girl was so unrealistic. I don't see how she could've pretended to be of high society. Not only would they have all known each other's families, she also couldn't have hidden the district she lived in. In the real world, there's also no way the people scammed wouldn't have made a bigger deal out of it, especially when she's allowed to go back to the school.

                                                          The only way I could enojy him is on a stake. Also him landing Carla has to be the most unrealistic thing ever.

                                                          Omar having his GGGB moment and cutting ties with that trash of a father was such a slay.

                                                            I finished episode 6 now.

                                                            LOL things changed so quckly since the first two episodes from the season. Samuel continues being the "good-naive" boy, I get why so many people dislike him, he's just boring, but I'll have to say I quite liked him more in this seasom than the last one.

                                                            Polo is a nerve-recking mess, he isn't dealing with the murder as gracefully as he was doing during the first two episodes anymore but it is explained why. I think his character grew tremendously from the last season, while he was quite bland on the previous one, he is one of the most interesting ones here.

                                                            6 episodes and Lu remains the same, her character hasn't really changed and she seems to be the same bitch she was on the previous season, let's see if things change on the last 2 episodes for her.

                                                            The 3 new characters are not really central to the main plot and I feel like the story could be told without them, but I still liked them, they are nice.

                                                            So far, Season 2 has been really good. Following the first season was hard and they succeeded, It's matched the expectations big time.
