Storyline

Mayte Soldevilla (Toni Acosta) is a mother who is currently selling copies of the TurboThunder 3000, a last-gen kitchen robot, but is struggling to sell enough copies. During an AMPA reunion, she offers all of the parents in it the idea of coming over to her house to give a demonstration of the machine out of desperation, but only her three friends - Lourdes Sanguino (Malena Alterio), Virginia Torres (Nuria Herrero) and Amparo Pérez (Mamen García) - accept. They are also joined last-minute by a fifth guest, Elvira (Marta Belenguer). Things go south when the machine malfunctions and somehow causes Elvira's death. Since Elvira constantly made the other four women's lives impossible and all of them had motivations to kill her, Mayte, Lourdes, Virginia and Amparo are fearful that people (specially their loved ones) will think they killed her on purpose and, because of this, they try to hide the tragic outcome of the demonstration - which will be easier said that done and will put the four...

Deserves to be seen outside Spain
15 August 2019 | by caroline69-1See all my reviews

This series is part of a Spanish film and TV genre that that I am a sucker for: people of modest means doing ordinary things; ordering their kids around, losing their jobs, talking outside the school gates while they wait for their badly-behaved kids. There are lots of Spanish clichés that I love: people getting stressed and sweaty in small, dimly lit flats/apartments with 1970s kitchens in antique buildings; narrow streets, and even some dusty Castillian plains with rustic whitewashed buildings and green-painted doors.

When Pedro Almodovar does it it tends to involve very glamorous women protagonists, but part of the charm of Spanish TV is that it often uses ordinary-looking or funny looking people. Older women are much more visible than they are on a lot of English-language TV. This series has that. There are also at least three characters with disabilities, all of them complex characters and one of them awfully close to being a villain. Oh, and the five main characters are all women. However, it almost never seems earnest or PC.

The series gets dramatic to the point of farce and can be very amusing while doing it, but it is about people dealing with the psychological stress of ordinary life. It gets a bit gory and violent at times, and a bit sentimental in the multi-level-marketing sales conference episode, even as the episode sends up the rah-rah-rah ambience of the pyramid sales world.

But I thoroughly recommend it and I hope it gets seen outside Spain. PS: for anyone confused by some of the Spanglish in the synopsis, a "kitchen robot" is a food processor, and the Turbo Thunder is a fictionalised Thermomix
