Review Of The Show
The show started with an overhead shot where Simon Marroquin, a character of the show, lay on the red couch with a voiceover talking about dark secrets. The overhead shot became an intercut with glimpses of stylized sex scenes covered in blue light. The scene then cuts to Cancun, where the audience is introduced to the Juanas.
While watching the episodes of the Five Juanas, I noticed that the writer had given fate a very significant role here because the writer of the show made sure several things would happen, and none of them would go unnoticed, such as the introductory scene deliberately showed each Juana’s bare ass in close-up so that the audience would get a good look at the birthmark.
All the five Juanas end up under one hotel at the same time, and during an earthquake that follows the evacuation of the complete building, puts all the Juanas out on the part patio. In another scene, the audience saw the buttcheeks in close-up so the Juanas could realize something strange is going on with their lives and not just because they all have a birthmark shaped like a fish.
The plot of the series was a perfect pace, and the acting of the skills was amazing as well. After watching the first episode, it felt as if one would expect what could happen in the next episode, but it had plenty of twists to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The series had plenty of hazy flashbacks and several voiceovers where the audience could hear the innermost thoughts of the characters.
There were a lot of explicit scenes in the movie, which makes it unideal to watch with people, but it is good enough to binge-watch. Overall, the series is good enough worth your time, and one would not get bored watching the series.
