I’m not gonna talk about the ending, but oh my goodness the ending is up Netflix fans. Part one of season five of money heist is now on Netflix we’re gonna talk about it in this spoiler-free review. At the beginning of season 5 the Professor faces off with Sierra as the stakes of the negotiations are raised when the army gets called in and then in the past berlin meets with a family member. So one thing I love about this show is as often as we go back and explore the past even of characters that aren’t with us anymore. The development and the arcs are so good they’re so well written that we still care. I don’t mind going away from the action now and then but that’s not necessarily the case. In the first two episodes. I mean we get those flashbacks but the action is so heavy so prevalent within the first two episodes of season five.
It is non-stop whether it be the pacing of what happens to certain characters the way episode one ends up the way episode two ends up the Professor is being tormented. I mean he is just in the worst situation as Sierra has him at gunpoint making fun of him throughout the episode telling this absolute genius that he’s living like a rat.
As the professor is trying every way in the world to get himself out of this very intense situation she’s trying to get him convicted for terrorism so his situation is dire the position he is in almost feels impossible to get out of. The show does such a great job at continuing to elevate and amplify those stakes throughout those first two episodes now eventually we get some slower-paced episodes in three and four a rousing finale in episode five episode one treats us to those flashbacks that I just mentioned we get to see berlin and of course the police wanting the army to get involved just like the Professor says but even within all of this madness.
We still get those quieter moments as Tokyo is talking about the fact that she will never find love like what she had again. These are the moments that are so impactful in the midst of all of this chaos pure unadulterated chaos. This is the result or series of results the fallout of everything that we’ve seen so far the one-on-one action scenes. The battles that we get to see the infiltration of certain places.
What is happening with Professor what happens with other characters and as you know with this series no one is safe well they’re safe while the plot needs them to be safe. There’s always something about a season of money heist that is so unexpected and there are a few moments here the end of episode one the end of episode two a moment in episode four and then the finale again trying to tiptoe around spoilers what leads us inevitably into part two which will be the finale of everything and looking into what happened is one of the absolute best parts and moments of what this season is giving us so far leaving us off wanting more that’s exactly what part one does.
I see exactly why Netflix or the creators, in general, decided to release it and do it in the way that they did because it’s just the ultimate cliffhanger the heartbreak the emotions that come from those characters and those scenes it’s all constructed so well and money heist has always been a show that brings us a well-rounded cast but moments between characters and there’s one moment in particular that really hit me it’s a phone call kind of against the Professor’s will but a phone call where he gets to tell each one of them individually something and that hit me so hard because they’re both groups if you will were in these dire situations at the time and it was great but on top of all of that some of the best action we’ve seen from any season of money heist so far. I would say my biggest criticisms are those episodes that really start to slow down in the middle of the half of the season trying to be specific here they pick back up eventually but I was really on board with the fast-paced nature of the first two episodes.
So once we hit that lull if you will you know I’m like okay can we pick things back up but it absolutely does and the first part of season five so far is so good guys and you know what happened right I can’t wait to see part two before I give you guys my loose score for part one again things will change when we get part two.
Let me know down below did you enjoy the five episodes that we got today of money heist and if you like these Netflix reviews you want more money heist coverage drops your thumbs up that tells me you’d like to see it but at the end of the day the intensity continues to pick up as we approach the finale of this series and season five keeps that momentum going so far I’m going in 80 with my score but again check back with me when we get the final few episodes of this season cannot wait I don’t know what exactly we’re going to get them but hopefully sooner rather than later because again the cliffhanger. I can’t wait to see the finale of this series.
