3.5 *Worth watching, but some behavior defies logic
This is a story about a cop who goes to jail for killing a boy while under the influence of drugs. Everyone believes he did it, but he maintains his innocence. Behind bars he studies law, and becomes an attorney when he gets out. He begins to take on cases involving people he knows, to fight injustice. Meanwhile, he tries to put his family life back together and find a way to put his crooked former boss behind bars. Roberto Alamo plays a hardened but sensitive tough guy, the perfect politically correct man. But as Caronte pursues his former boss, the series gets more and more melodramatic. He does things that defy logic like *spoiler alert* hiding large sums of cash in his apartment and keeping a weapon he stole from the Comisario's desk in his car's glove box. What could possibly go wrong? You'd think he'd treat the evidence that could finally put his nemesis behind bars with more care. The early episodes are best, and pretty solid entertainment. I like the entire supporting cast, although Carlos Hipolito is more of a toady as Comisario than menacing nemesis. The characters are interesting and you become vested in their welfare. Miriam Giovanelli is wonderful as the novice lawyer seeking to parner with Caronte. Her character has drive, independence and the confidence of youth. But she became pregnant in real life during the filming of season 1 ( though her character didn't) and it shows. In some later season 1 scenes her face is ghostly pale. Both her body and her personality changed, and she lost some of her charm and appeal. Still, the show is a solid 3.5 stars, better than so much that's on TV nowadays. If you don't examine the plot lines too closely, you'll enjoy it more.

Really good!
I've been hooked on this series from the first episode, the plot of this series is excellent and is consistently maintained throughout the 13 episodes, the actors are phenomenal, I can't wait for them to release the second season.

Intriguing at first, exhausting as it goes on
The premise and characters were interesting at first. But how many emotionally unstable outburst prone cop shows do we need? Caronte repeatedly has outbursts, which are cliche but I guess somewhat understandable. Me as a viewer know that they are coming from a mile away and the results are also very predictable. How many normal people have that little foresight and strategy when they are trying to take down someone big? By the latter parts of the season, I was hoping it to end quickly so I can just move on. Wish we had actually smarter cop characters in TV once in a while (not ones that are supposedly smart and act stupid for plot).

Sehr Gut!
This was awesome. I hope they have a 2nd season. The characters are good and the actors are great. Of course, Miriam Giovanelli is guapa but there is a lot more to the show. I highly recommend this. Kudos to Verónica Fernández for creating this.

Amazing
So many great actors but my favorite was the gay cop who gave everyone every reason to respect, admire and love him and not one reason to hate. Exhausted by all the social justice warrior series with an agenda, then you will be delighted by Caronte. There are strong men, weak men, strong women, weak women not just strong women and men who are idiots. Lots of interesting issues and a judge who gives one hope.

Has real potential, but the subtitles need improvement
Sometimes it's just too much work to put up with subtitles, and this is one of those. The main problem is they are rapid fire; difficult to read before they move on to the next. A high quality dub into English is too much to ask, I suppose. Typical Prime video. Show has real potential outside of that issue.

One of the best crime dramas you'll see in a while
The storyline was great, the acting was superb, the casting worked well--everyone was very believable. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because when Caronte cries sometimes I didn't believe him. Poor guy has to really work to cry, like most guys lol. Other than that I enjoyed every minute, and hate that I have to wait a year for next season!
