Is It Any Good?
This entertaining series is the second spin-off inspired by the neo-noir 2017 movie adaptation of the novel Suburra, and features all the family drama, corruption, and violence the franchise is known for. The character-driven plotlines intertwine in ways that highlight the complicated and unforgiving crime world in which they have operated in throughout their whole lives. It also brings back specific characters and leans into past stories, making it potentially difficult for those unfamiliar with this universe to completely follow what's happening at the beginning. But once settled into the storyworld, Suburraeterna easily becomes an compelling viewing experience, so much so that it might inspire folks to watch the original film so that they can fully understand how it all began. If you're looking for a well-produced crime thriller, you'll find one here.
