‘PhysicalI caught my eye from the first trailer that Apple released a few weeks ago. The series that tell how a person goes out of their comfort zone to dare new things are usually not mine, but the quality of the catalog and the atmosphere of the 80s encouraged me to see its first chapters.
In them, you think you are going to see a story of overcoming, a person who explodes his everyday bubble and breaks his own molds. But no you can’t be more wrong
If you’re expecting a positive personal development series, run away
You can start to perceive it in the warnings that appear at the beginning of certain chapters (in addition to the warning of being an adult series): eating disorders, sensitive images … in this series you see a person who has them. been a victim of the worst habits, losing the will to live and hating everything around him.
You hear the voiceover of the protagonist’s conscience almost anytime, continuously crashing and punishing himself. ‘Physique’ does not cut a hair
We are therefore faced with a series that is not suitable for delicate minds. Show the rawness of what can be real when your life and mind goes off the rails too much, in detail, in 4K and HDR. Rose Byrne fits the portrayal of such a prominent woman well, although the rest of the cast and plot is flatter. In fact I almost appreciate that the chapters are only half an hour long
I would recommend “Physical” to all those nostalgic for the music and atmosphere of the 80s, who have no problem seeing scenes that could hurt the sensitivity and who are prepared for camberros attitudes that are outside the box. This is not a series that will leave the catalog, but he has his way of being which will convince some. You can read the reviews that our colleagues from Espinof have made of it.
