|Merlí and his students.|
The storyline is from Spanish series Merlí about at philosophy teacher who is also Bruno's father. The series seems really good, actually. There are interesting chracters and it's very well made. So far everything good. But I wonder, are there really any Bruno & Pol lovestory? After watching the first season I'm not sure.
|Carlos Cuevas as Pol Rubio & David Solans as Bruno Bergeron.|
Bruno Bergeron (David Solans) and Pol Rubio (Carlos Cuevas) is in the same class and has been friends for a long time. Bruno is a closeted gay and ballet dancer (yes, nobody knows that he's dancing) who has been in love with his friend Pol forever so it seems. They have a sweet friendship and an interesting relationship, but I don't know if this really is a love story. O, they had sex once but Pol states that he just wanted to try it. And I think it might be so. He usually sleeps with girls and he might be bisexual but I really don't think he is in love with Bruno. So we got a quite steamy sex scene but I don't really know what all the fuzz is about. And also, Bruno is really an asshole! He is a quite good friend and he has good sides but how he treats his teacher, there's just no excuses! I might be extra sensible about that because I'm a teacher, but... no! I just can't stand it! Bruno is supposed to be the main character of the students I guess, but I don't really like him. Pol is much more likeable. So no, this was not as good as I hoped for.
|Iñaki Mur as Oliver Grau.|
But there will be a second season so it might develop to something else. Maybe there will be a lovestory anyway. And there's also another gay character, Oliver Grau (Iñaki Mur), who arrives to the class quite late in the series, and he is openly gay. And seems really nice. So there might be something between him and Bruno? But I would actually like him with Pol more. But I'm not sure about him... Well, let's see what happens in the second season. I might be surprised!
