LOL

The Trail, Trailer (video, left), Netflix

CS Commentary: Here’s an Italian series that we didn’t know what to make of at first. Are all of the characters unlikeable and morally compromised – or does it just take more time for the plot to fully develop? It turns out it’s the later. Who you like at the end may be much different than who you like in the beginning…and there are some good twists and turns getting there. You have to compensate for some of the cheesy translations in the overdubs – which we never like, btw, but these overdubs are better than most – and apparently the Italian legal system is much different from America’s otherwise the ending doesn’t really makes sense. But ultimately this series is entertaining and satisfying, another interesting layer of Roman society and culture. We weren’t sure whether to give it an A or a B so…CS Grade: A-
