A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Criminals aren't always clear-cut villains, and difference between bad and good is sometimes muddled.
Positive Role Models
These thieves have nothing to lose, but they are complicated beings. Tokio is a strong woman with deep emotions.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of guns and automatic weapons. Shootings happen; sometimes blood is visible. Hostages are taken, and sometimes psychologically tortured.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Money Heist (Spanish title: La Casa de Papel) is a Spanish crime drama about a group of misfit thieves attempting to rob the Royal Mint of Spain. This dramatic story offers a thoughtful, sophisticated story, but does feature lots of gun violence, some blood, strong sexual content (including nudity and partially undressed teens), cigarette smoking, and references to illegal drug use.
Is It Any Good?
This crime drama offers a complex story world that combines components of the traditional bank heist plot line with action sequences and elements of the surreal. Because the series was originally produced as a two-part limited series, the main cast is given the time to evolve into multidimensional characters, which makes them worth investing in. Furthermore, despite the fact that key events are often narrated by Tokio, a range of individual stories are woven together in unexpected ways, broadening the point of view. But despite streaming in shorter installments (and the reliance on subtitles for non-Spanish speaking viewers),Money Heist remains a skillfully crafted, engaging adult-oriented tale that is worth the watch.
