Latin America's Dexter other comparatives X-Files, Fringe --Maya Ent

Product Description

Now the end has two faces. Renzo Marquez (Julio Chavez) and Marina Segal (Cecilia Roth) join forces again to solve yet another logic-defying homicide case. With the help of XL (Alejandro Awada), a psychiatric patient suffering from low brain activity, they manage to anticipate a serial killer's next move. This time, the murderer is a tormented man who views killing as an art form and, as such, thinks each homicide deserves to be immortalized in a series of photographs. Homicide detectives embark on a race against time to catch him, even as Renzo and Marina are burdened by the ghosts of their own pasts.

"Epitafios" is one of the brightest, most disturbing, most gruesome, and most unconventional television series that you're likely to encounter. This Argentinean drama was commissioned by the HBO Latin division and due to the success of its original broadcast--both seasons have aired stateside on the Latin as well as the Signature channels, but never on traditional HBO. I purchased the DVD set of Season One sight unseen--on buzz alone. And I couldn't have been more pleased. Yes, it boasted one of the most ridiculously over-plotted serial killing sprees that you're likely to encounter. But isn't that par for the course? The entertainment industry has cast all ritual murderers as evil masterminds, maniacal geniuses. If there were even a fraction of the number of serial killers at work as appear in popular fiction--we'd all have been brutally dismembered by now! But despite its implausibility--the show boasts terrific lead performances and works as a high octane thriller. In short, get Season One if you don't already have it!

In truth, I was a bit concerned returning to the scene of the crime. I was afraid the show couldn't re-ignite the magic and mayhem of those first thirteen episodes, but surprisingly--I felt even more tapped into the second series. Again, the show is structured around a relentless killer. The cops are clued into the atrocities when they start receiving anonymous photos. Of course, the murders are once again elaborately staged for maximum impact and the trail of bodies seems to be leading to a big revelation. Thankfully, our lead detectives (Julio Chavez and Cecilia Roth) have been around the block once before. Chavez is still reeling from the devastating conclusion of Series One and it seems unclear whether he can recover an emotional stability.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but Beware The Packaging! July 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic series and I'm glad that the second season is finally available! But there was a very strange situation with my copy - the outer packaging is all for season 2, but the inner packaging - including the labels on the discs themselves - are all for season 1. If you get a copy like this, check out the discs before you freak out - they were the correct ones, just mislabeled!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite a Stretch August 30, 2011
Although this story was more detailed than the first season's, it was not nearly as tight and the ending was contrived to match the beginning moments. This same thing was done in season 1 but with perfection; here it was forced and obviously just a gimmick. The story took tangents which did all eventually come together BASICALLY but nothing astounding. It lacked the punch of the first season and this was sad becasuse season 1 was so brilliant.
