Money Heist Is One Of Netflix's Most Watched Series In Its First Week
This weekend, when you're doing the classic trawl through Netflix, you might want to give Spanish language hit Money Heist a whirl.
Having recently released the third series on its streaming service, Netflix revealed that the show had an unreal 34 million viewers in its first week, making it the most watched non-English language series in its first week on the platform.
Although people (mainly lazy, uncultured ones, unlike me and you), are sometimes put off by subtitled shows, you can watch with subtitles, an English dub or both, depending on preference.
The show's had loads of hype so far, with people seeming to love it. Named Le Casa de Papel in its native Spanish, the show has racked up an impressive 8.6 out of 10 on IMDB and 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Well worth a punt.

The Spanish, TV show, created by Álex Pina also won Best Drama at the International Emmy Awards and the Premios Fénix.
Although it's not been officially announced, Pina has said that series three is not the end of the heist. Confirming that La Casa de Papel will be back for part four, Pina said at a press conference: "They're [the characters are] a group of people who still have a lot to say. It took us quite a long time to decide, we wanted to respect our work."
Netflix describe it as a 'riveting crime series', with the official synopsis reading: "Eight thieves take hostages and lock themselves in the Royal Mint of Spain as a criminal mastermind manipulates the police to carry out his plan."
So there you have it, looks like your weekend binge is well and truly sorted.
