Trivia

Season 2 was filmed in 2011, right after the end of season 1. Before broadcast, government in Spain changed to the right wing party Partido Popular, who took control of RTVE and among other things kept hijacked this season in the shelves under the excuse of "saving budget" (which was not an impediment to release in the meantime shows way more expensive than this one which was already completed). Only in November 2018, when the government changed again and PP lost control of RTVE, they finally started broadcasting the season, seven years after being filmed, when most of the actors had moved to another projects and some of them even had passed away years earlier.

A decent drama about the Spanish Civil War
20 May 2019 | by bosoxrudySee all my reviews

14 de abril, La República is a sequel to La señora, although you don't need to see the first series to understand the sequel. The setting is 1936 Madrid, in the weeks before the outbreak of the civil war. The conflict between the nationalists and the republicans is played out in the conflict between two families, the wealthy de la Torre and the humble Prado, related by blood and connected by some contested land.

The rumblings of war set families against families, friend against friend, and members of the same household against each other. As is so often the case, it's can be hard to tell which side some is on and who you can trust.

The series isn't great, but I thought it was worth watching. I liked the characters. While I didn't necessarily like every plot turn, overall the series captures quite well the difficulty of war, especially a civil war.

Final note, if you're not a native speaker of Spanish, the dialogue is pretty easy to understand. The Castilian is pretty standard without much slang. If you need a bit of help, Spanish subtitles are available.
