I’m really not a fan of Netflix splitting up k-drama seasons like this. I wish we would have gotten the episodes the same way that we get the other k-drama episodes, 2 episodes a week because this 6 episode split is annoying as shit.

I will say that because of the split in seasons, by the time this one aired, I wasn’t in a rush to watch it. I forgot about it, I forgot most of what happened in the first season and didn’t take the time to do a re-watch before jumping into this one but even with all of that, I still enjoyed the second season a lot more than I was anticipating to.

The Story

I didn’t watch the original Money Heist so I don’t know how different this version was but overall, I thought this story was solid. From the reasons for the Money Heist team plan, to the carry out, each different cast member, and everything overall I thought was done well. It didn’t take me long at all to finish out the series and once I jumped into part 2, I was right back in. Everything that I forgot, came back pretty quickly and things have progressed in the Mint so they’re gearing up for their final move. Seeing the push and pull between the Professor and Woo Jin was crazy but it only added to the excitement of the story being told.

The Cast

The cast once again made me happy, made me sad, made me cry, and just every little thing under the sun. Each cast member, no matter what side they were on, played their parts well and even the characters that I didn’t like, I liked what they brought to the series so alls well that ends well. I thought that it would be hard to remember who was who, outside of everyone on the team, but it was pretty easy to keep everyone straight from the heist team, the bank people, the cops, the government folks, everyone was easy to recognize and remember. Lots of three dimensional characters and I liked them.

Final Thoughts

I thought this show was pretty good from beginning to end. The lead up to the end kept me invested and I thought that this was such an easy watch that I wondered why it took me so long to finally jump into it. There’s lots of action, lots of twists and turns and just a solid ass show that will entertain the socks off of you so if you’re in the mood for a suspenseful thriller, this one is definitely for you. There’s lots of things to recommend this show. My favorite is this…

So yeah, 4 out of 5, would definitely recommend.

Final Rating

4 out of 5
