Criticism of Vis a Vis: The Oasis, the expectant spin-off that does not measure up to its introductory series

Macarena and Zulema have been robbing jewelers, banks and casinos for years, but the time has come to separate. To do this, they decide to prepare a last robbery that will aim to steal a diamond tiara from the daughter of an important Mexican drug lord during their wedding. They will have the help of Goya, Mónica, Triana and «La Flaca» to carry out this work. Hours after the robbery, the team will meet at the Hotel Oasis to share the loot and finally separate. However, the plan is not as perfect as they had planned and the situation is complicated every moment.

The famous jail closed twice, first on Antena 3 and later on Fox Spain after an amazing season. If Vis a Vis has marked a before and after in Spanish fiction, it is thanks to Maca and Zulema, the main engine of this spin-off that has left us more disappointments than joys. The Oasis is marked by a radical change where it leaves behind everything that elevated the series to the highest, from the continuous twists of the script to the eccentricity of the characters. The first chapter already left us a bad taste in the mouth that they have not managed to recover in the next seven chapters.

All characters lose their essence.

Zulema's wonderful performance of Najwa Nimri leaves much to be desired; not for the actress but for the evolution they give to the character. Zulema stop being that cunning, frenetic, unpredictable character that we fell in love with so much to become an indifferent. Also Maggie Civantos e Itziar Castro they also lose the essence of their characters, rarely demonstrating the true surviving inmates inside. Of the new cast, little to add except for Sandoval's family, who despite his death at the end of the fourth season, his depraved level resurfaces this being one of the best ideas but with a null narrative evolution.

The script also falls apart in most respects with the inability to spin wefts. Many stories are introduced abruptly, being of little relevance in the story that, as if that were not enough, does not manage to link them to the main one. Most of these are not resolved or are done in a basic and quick way. The parallel mounting doesn't help either to understand it since there is too much disjointed information to carry out this audiovisual technique.

Most departments fail.

The sensation that El Oasis transmits is very far from the one that Maca and Zulema left when they passed through Cruz del Norte, being very high and difficult to overcome. They promised a fast-paced spin-off, and it ended up being a mistake that little justice does to the name of its original series. What seem like imperishable characters with inexhaustible stories, leaves us a rare sensation with this last wave of the yellow tide that, finally does not rise to the height of the insurmountable but bitter recluses.

What do you think? Do you also think the same? Tell me!!
