The series is set to begin in Madrid during 1928. The national telephone company opens its headquarters in the city centre and hundreds of girls queue up to get a job as a “cable girl” in the only place that represents progress and modernity for women at the time. Four girls, coming from very different backgrounds, will start work as operators. From that day on, jealousy, envy and betrayal will get mixed up with the hunger for success, friendship and love.
i started watching the first few episode only semi watching then realized it was English dubbed it didn't like it as much found it a bit harder to watch it is a good show you just have to actually pay attention to it i found
The show itself is quite enjoyable - both visually and plot-wise - once you get past the fact it is led by the least captivating and the most emotionally constipated protagonist of all times. All side characters have something interesting to offer - they're not calques of one another and they all have their own secrets and conflicts, the costumes are gorgeous, and I know that the choice to use modern music in a period drama may seem controversial but it worked for Peaky Blinders and I'll defend it till my dying day.
I couldn't make it through 5 minutes... its a spanish novella, melodramatic for no apparant reason. The costumes were nice though. Highly anti-misogynistic, which is interesting, but again overly dramatic for no reason.
I love the chemistry between main characters and I am beyond glad that it is in Spanish. However, Alba as a character is driving me crazy and I dislike that type of female characters. Good acting from the rest of the crew makes it easier to survive such an annoying female lead :D Still, really good, easy to watch show.
