  • Like most people, I genuinely enjoyed Netflix’s Money Heist so I got really excited when I saw the spin-off series called Berlin. If you watched Money Heist, you’ll know that Berlin was one of the most prominent characters in the series, and I personally loved him, too. Not all the time because I’ve had my fair share of annoyance with him, but his character concluded beautifully in the series. For this series, I wanted to share my thoughts regarding the entire story and if the hype is justified.

    One more thing – if you’re planning to watch this series, make sure you have a good internet connection, whether it’s fiber, cable, or satellite internet. This way, you don’t have to worry about lags or buffering while watching.

    Berlin Cast

    Let’s start off with the cast. Berlin’s cast was great. I think all of them suited and portrayed their characters well. But still, there are some improvements that can be made for specific characters. To give you a quick overview of their cast, let me share them to you.

    • Pedro Alonso as Berlin
    • Begoña Vargas as Cameron
    • Michelle Jenner as Keila
    • Julio Peña as Roi
    • Itziar Ituño as Raquel Murillo
    • Samantha Siqueiros as Camille
    • Najwa Nimri as Alicia Sierra
    • Tristán Ulloa as Damian

    As you’ll see, there are some familiar names from Money Heist. I mean, wouldn’t it be fun to see Alicia Sierra and Raquel Murillo lose their minds solving a case once again? Performance-wise, they all did an awesome performance. As much as I want to explain every cast’s performance, I will leave it up to you to judge. But take it from me, they did great.

    Also, just a quick note that you won’t be able to watch Berlin on other Spanish TV platforms because it’s a Netflix Original.

    Plot

    The series is about Berlin in his glory days, where he was still the leader of his own crew, performing high-risk high-reward heists in 34 different cities in Europe. Compared to Money Heist or La Casa De Papel, Berlin’s heists are far more risky and full of adrenaline. However, this TV series is not all about the plan, the twists, and the actual heist itself. It’s about the depth of Berlin’s character. The type of story that will allow you to love or hate Berlin even more.

    You will see Berlin or Andres romancing different women in his life, his family history, his inner demons, and his smarts as he executes some of the most dangerous yet most exciting heists in history. Personally, I think this series would be better if it was also available on other Spanish TV platforms like DISH Latino as it would make more noise for other potential viewers.

    So, Should You Watch Berlin or Skip It?

    If you loved Berlin’s character like I did and want to see more of him, then I definitely recommend you to watch this show. However, if you’re expecting that this would be like La Casa De Papel, then you might probably get disappointed. It doesn’t highlight the intricate heist planning and suspense of Money Heist, so if you want to enjoy this series, keep that expectation low. For me, Berlin is a great TV show that’s worth your time. It perfectly highlighted Berlin as a person and helped me understand his character in Money Heist.

    Conclusion

    Berlin is a big must-watch for me, but the decision is still yours. I just shared my few cents regarding the series and deemed it worthy of my time. I was really entertained by this show, and I want you to experience the same thing. But remember, this is just my opinion. There are a lot of reviews and ratings out there, so if you’re not yet sure, make sure to check other reviews to determine if Berlin is your cup of tea. Happy watching!
