This irreverent pulp fiction series, which is in Spanish with English subtitles, mixes action with dark comedy to create an entertaining, over-the-top story. With the help of first-person flashbacks, viewers learn some characters' backstories, including how they ended up at the brothel, and how being there has changed the way they see themselves in the world. But these personal narratives are folded into the women's frenzied attempts to safely escape their pimp, while facing whatever personal demons they've been avoiding.

Sky Rojo also spotlights some of the realities of sex work in Spain, where it often goes unregulated, and where pimping and sex trafficking, while illegal, is still possible due to loopholes in the system. But thanks to good writing, the three women are presented as strong, three-dimensional protagonists who are each empowered in their own way. Meanwhile, each episode introduces a new (and sometimes weird) twist that keeps it interesting, along with some dry humor. If you're old enough to handle it, this is one series that is worth binge-watching until the end.
