Gaitan and Ladron

Review of "Diablo Guardián" 6/14/18 by Suzanne
airs streaming now on Amazon

This is an interesting show about a young woman, Violetta (Paulina Gaitan), who tries to leave her town in Mexico to make it big in New York City. Instead, she runs out of money and falls into the hands of some bad people.

It's a bit of a farce...not quite a drama and not quite a comedy. Everything is exaggerated. I don't normally like farces, but this one is very well done. Another character is Pig (Adrian Ladron), who's trying to write a story about his grandmother. They seem to have two separate stories, but I assume that at some point, we will see them connect.

The best thing about this series is the way the characters are written. They are very interesting and many of them have unusual nicknames. Violetta is a very strong woman, although not really a good person. She's a product of her environment. Anyway, check it out because it's worth watching.


Based on Xavier Velasco's award-winning novel, Diablo Guardián tells the story of Violetta, a young woman who flees her native Mexico to start anew in New York City. But instead of living a dream, Violetta is awoken to a harsh reality when she runs out of money, sending her into the arms of the villainous Nefastófeles.
