The Barrier Review

Updated: May 24

The Barrier Review: The Netflix TV-Series "The Barrier" is very interesting because it has an original plot and is quite popular at the moment due Covid-19.It is a Spanish drama that gives you the feeling that we may experience similar situations in the future with the pandemic of Covid-19. The plot of TV-Series "The Barrier" has to do with a pandemic that has broken out around the world and is called Nora-virus what a coincidence don't you think? , this virus is deadly and the government is trying in every way to find a cure having limited the whole world as if it were a dictatorship.In the government's efforts to find a cure, they use young children as experiments hidden from the world.When the people find out, then a battle begins over what should be done in such a situation, what is right and what is wrong, and who is the one who will win this battle.We are experiencing a similar situation in our lives at this time as tomorrow is unknown. It is a very powerful TV-Series and a very clever idea of ​​the creator Daniel Ecija,I suggest you watch it because it is worth its time and it's a series that you can not easily predict what will happen.

What are the pros and cons of the series:

Let's start with the positives that are more, first what to say about the actress Angela Molina who was fantastic in her role despite her age, a big thumbs up. The plot of the series is original and very interesting today due Covid-19.

Is anxious in whatever episodes you watch and the action scenes are logical without exaggerating.The whole acting was mediocre to good with Angela Molina standing out once again.

The downside is that it has an original plot but it is a cheap production series and that seems enough, if they invested something more I think it would be on the Netflix charts for a long time because of the pandemic today.The other negative that really interested me is that you become in a state of pandemic and restriction that no one wears a mask; I understand that they want all the actors to appear in public but at least outdoors the creator could combine it better and thus it would seem an even more realistic series.Also the name Nora-Virus was commented a lot by the public and really when I first heard it I laughed a lot,the creator could think of something better and this shows that he was clearly affected by the current situation we live.

My Rating:

I could rate it with a 7 no more and no less because I think it is a fair rating for what it offers us so far.


In 2045, Spain like the rest of the western world has been driven into a dictatorial regime by the lack of natural resources. Life in the countryside is impossible, and in the city a fence divides peoples into the powerful, and the rest.
