Spoiler-Free Review of “Lies and Deceit” on Netflix: Engrossing and Intense

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“I’m not imagining it…”

Lies and Deceit (Mentiras) released on Netflix on March 4th 2022 with all six episodes available to stream now. The Spanish drama-thriller series stars Ángela Cremonte, Javier Rey, Itziar Atienza and Manuela Velasco. Each episode runs for approximately 48-50 minutes.

A teacher accuses a surgeon of date rape while he denies the allegations, causing both of their lives to spiral out of control.

Lies and Deceit will remind you very much of Netflix’s Unbelievable. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

A gripping story…

I was pulled in right away on this one. The story was emotional and powerful. The series also did a good job of keeping the audience guessing. It was hard to know who to believe at first and as the story continued, I was completely captivated by what I was watching.

A satisfying ending.

I thought that this series really built up to some extremely intense moments. At one point I was yelling at my screen because I was so involved. Series like these often have trouble with the ending and I was left completely satisfied with this one. I think it wrapped everything up and it answered the questions I had.

The Cons:

Heavy and slow at times…

Much like Unbelievable, this series centers around sensitive content. At times, it was emotionally draining and I needed to be in the right state of mind while watching this. I also thought the side plot was not really necessary. It took away from the main one and it also made the episodes last longer than they needed to. I think that the series built enough momentum to keep me invested until the end and I had to see what happened, but it needed a few minor pacing tweaks.

So am I in or out?

Lies and Deceit told an important and gripping story. It kept me glued to the screen the entire time, leading up to a satisfying conclusion.

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
