Los Farad 2023 / A handsome production with ultimately unconvincing drama connecting its crime elements


The idea of a fitness instructor suddenly discovering the thrill of selling military armaments is promising in its absurdity, so it’s unfortunate that Los Farad doesn’t maintain this offbeat sense of humor for too long. It moves relatively quickly into tense criminal activity, but the series isn’t able to really capture the magnetic pull that this world of luxury has on protagonist Oskar. Without enough table-setting, the crime family he finds himself becoming a part of can’t help but seem ordinary, and the last-minute solutions he finds weaken the urgency of the situations he’s in, as cinematic as they appear on screen.
