HBO is one of the platforms for watching series and movies streaming that has given us some of the best series of all time: Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, Euphoria …
For this reason, it’s no wonder that every time a new series comes out on the platform, our expectations rise to the clouds. So far, HBO has been a hallmark of quality.
In this case, we also take a look at the first Spanish series produced by HBO Europe, i.e. Country. And the truth is, we are dying of desire.
We die for many reasons: for its incredible cast of actors and actresses, for being based on a novel that became a national phenomenon in no time, for the quality of the few images we got to see of the series, but especially for dealing with an issue that continues to be as controversial as it is painful: the story of the terrorist group ETA.
When and where can you see Patria?
As we explained above, Patria is an HBO production. Therefore, obviously, the series can be seen in the HBO platform. Unlike other series, all the episodes will not be released at the same time, if we do not have to wait to see the series little by little.
The series was slated to launch last March, however, due to the pandemic its premiere had to be postponed until September 27, 2020.
The series is available in all territories: HBO Europe, HBO Latin America, and HBO USA. But beware, because the first episode of Patria can be seen free on Telecinco. You heard right!
With this movement we understand that HBO wants to consolidate itself as a benchmark platform in Europe, the possibility of “giving” a free episode of Patria, aims to make the public addicted and must resort to the HBO platform to finish watching the series.
Initially the first two chapters will be published on HBO, for the other six episodes (the season will have 8 episodes in total), we will have to wait to see a new episode each week.
If you don’t have an HBO subscription yet, we recommend that you consider it, especially if you like series. HBO has an extensive catalog of very good quality series.
You can try HBO for free to see if you really think you can enjoy the platform. It will cost you $ 8.99 per month.
We also recommend that you always use a VPN when browsing the internet as it offers greater security. If you don’t have a VPN yet, take a look at our pick of the best VPNs this year.
Patria’s official synopsis
An official synopsis for the series has been released which perfectly describes what we can expect from it:
“On the day ETA announces the abandonment of arms, Bittori goes to the cemetery to tell the grave of her husband, Txato, murdered by the terrorists, that she has decided to return to the town where they lived for the whole time. her life. Will she be able to live together? with those who harassed her before and after the attack which changed her life and that of her family? Will she be able to know who the man was? hooded who killed her husband on a rainy day on his way to his transport company?
As devious as it is, Bittori’s presence alters the city’s false tranquility, especially that of her neighbor Miren, once a close friend and mother of Joxe Mari, an imprisoned terrorist suspected of Bittori’s worst fears. What happened between these two women? What has poisoned the lives of your children and their close-knit husbands in the past? With their hidden tears and unwavering convictions, with their wounds and bravery, the incandescent story of their lives before and after the crater of murder. “
