The show’s first season circles the story of Alba (Blanca Suárez), a girl who’s dark past comes back to haunt her. Alba is caught in a criminal act and is bribed by a dirty cop to bring down the countries largest telephone company and steal a large sum of money, in return for her freedom and the malicious cop’s silence.

The shows is a sexy, passionate, fun thrill ride of events. I could not put my Apple TV control down. I guess you could say I binged the entire first season in a night, dreaming I would somehow teleport to the world of Cable Girls and kiss Yon Gonzales till I die from affixation! High on the drama like a really well done guilty pleasured telenovela, Cable Girls is a must see.
I mean it!! DROP what you’re doing, stop reading this and go on over to Netflix and pop out the popcorn, cause if you’re a sucker for quality troubled romance your gonna be at it for a few hours.
The Verdict: A perfect angry bird flirt, wink and kiss!!! Oh, WAIT….. sad face!
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
NOTE: The show is in Spanish. There are options for English dubbing or English subtitles. I recommend hearing Yon Gonzales sexy Spanish voice and read your heart away.
