Money Heist(La Casa de Papel) is a Spanish series revolves around a group of thieves with a life full of twists and turns is known for its gripping story and dark nature. The series is for no question quite able to hook anyone into binging it until the end if you watch an episode or even the trailer. And season 3 which had been premiered on NetFlix on July 19th was not bad at all. As of now, there is no official word from any reliable sources of the return of this wonderful series. With that said, there is no question in its renewal for a 4th season as it was the Most Popular Foreign Language TV series, by Forbes. For the painful wait, here is a list to dive in with striking similarities packed with a lot of surprises.
#1 El Señor de Los Cielos
“The Lord of the Skies” which is the name it is known as in English is a series talking about the life of Amado Carrillo Fuentes, who is the former leader of Juarez Cartel in Mexico. As it is a television soap opera it is a bit more dramatic than the Money Heist. This doesn’t compromise the action scenes in the series which is it mainly praised for.
This is a Political thriller drama series starring the famous Game of Thrones star Richard Mardsen. It is about a bodyguard (quite obviously) named David Budd, who is burdened with the task of protecting British home secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes). The beginning of the series may look like a light-hearted tale revolving around Budd and Montague. But that assumption will be proven wrong when the story progresses to a far more complex theme of terrorism and corruption prevailing in between the secret service and police.
This binge-worthy NetFlix original series is based on a true story of world-renowned notorious criminal Pablo Escobar. The Columbian Drug lord whose rise to power until his demise is carefully pictured in this 3 season series. The third season although proceeds to talk about: The Cali Cartel the power behind the mask. As this is a dual-language series, using subtitles are advised(unless you are a bi-lingual genius).
#4 Prison Break
There is a very striking relationship between Money Heist and Prison Break. In Money Heist, the cat and mouse game present between The Professor and Inspector Raquel Murillo is quite glaring and becomes very personal. TIn Prison Break, the same is the case between Inspector Mahone (William Fichtner) and Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller). An innocent man named Lincoln “Linc” Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is sent to prison with a death sentence. His brother, who is played by Miller tries to rescue him with an ingenious plan which includes putting himself in the prison. This is the gist of the series.
#5 Breaking Bad
This series is added at the end of the list for a reason. Anyone who is accustomed to TV series should have heard about this IMDB’s Best ranking series. This proves that this list is not in order from best to worst. Cause this is one of the best. Walter White, the Chemistry teacher cum Meth cook keeps his identity hidden same as The Professor from Money Heist.
