Between Olympic coverage – checked out on Netflix

Morocco: Love in Times of War is a Spanish series just recently arrived on Netflix.  It’s about a group of Spanish nurses who arrive to nurse the soldiers and don’t have much of an idea of what it will really be like – reality versus their glorified imagination. They are in for a rude awakening as they battle the fear..pain..death and sheer suffering of war.

I am not familiar with any of the actors of course, but it seems like a quality production. I have seen the first episode and thought it was very well done. It was nice to follow a Spanish drama ears had missed it. There is one (minor?) character who is obviously Mexican. I was struggling a bit with the Spanish accent, but I suddenly realized that I could understand each and every word he said and that’s when I realized it. I so enjoy watching his tiny scenes because he’s got that beautiful deep voice.. much like our beloved Don Noel Mancera from CS.. I could swear it was him talking!

I have a deja vu feeling with this drama because it’s very similar (though so far not exactly) like an Australian miniseries that I watched called the Anzac Girls… Victorian nurses sent to help… I quite enjoyed that one too…
