Money heist review season 1: Terrible name, brilliant show

We need to talk about Money Heist . The Spanish-language show on Netflix – known as La Casa de Papel (house of paper) in its native tongue – is one of the best shows on Netflix that too many people aren’t watching, despite being the streaming service’s most watched non-English language show. I mean, it’s called Money Heist, which is one of the least compelling English-language names; and it’s in Spanish, which means you either have to watch subtitles (the horror), or listen to an unconvincing American-English dub (even more horror), where everyone sounds a little bored and a lot like they’re reading from a translated script. There are so many barriers to entry here that I wouldn’t blame you for never taking that first step into the world of Money Heist. But, in an irony that wouldn’t be lost on the show’s characters, you’re robbing yourself of one of the richest shows of the past few years.
