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.

Its a good idea presented in a basic bitch kind of way... predictable and corny, it is an enjoyable show but not a really goood one! it's about women drama and revolution in a man ego driven world

A period series from Spain, about female telephone operators and their personal lives. If you can get past the voice dubbing and the soap opera-like storyline, it’s kind of entertaining.

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.

It's a fun story, and I just LOOOOOVE the outfits and the 20's-30's era, but the soundtrack couldn't be further from accurate... I wish they would have payed attention to that HUGE detail

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.
