The Neighbor is a Spanish-language series from Netflix that follows the story of a man named Javier (played by Quim Gutiérrez), a slacker who has no real ambitions in life. However, his life takes an unexpected turn when he discovers that his elderly neighbor, who he has been stealing electricity from, has left him a suit that gives him superpowers. As he tries to navigate his new powers and figure out how to use them, he also has to contend with the fact that his longtime crush, Lola (played by Clara Lago), is now dating his best friend.

One of the great things about The Neighbor is the way it balances comedy and drama. The show is genuinely funny, with plenty of laughs to be had as Javier struggles to control his powers and keep his secret identity hidden from Lola and his other friends. But at the same time, the show also has a lot of heart. Javier is a lovable slacker who you can't help but root for, and his relationships with Lola and his best friend are both complex and compelling.

Along with Javier, the other characters in the show are all well-drawn and interesting. Lola is a strong, independent woman who has her own ambitions and goals, and the show does a great job of exploring both her relationship with Javier and her own character arc. Javier's best friend, Tomás (played by Adrián Pino), is also a well-realized character, and the show does an excellent job of exploring the dynamics between the three of them.

Of course, the show wouldn't be what it is without its superhero element, and The Neighbor manages to pull this off in a really unique way. Rather than being a straight-up superhero show, the powers that Javier has are more low-key and understated, which makes for some really interesting storytelling opportunities. For example, Javier's powers include the ability to fly, but only for a few seconds at a time, which leads to some genuinely hilarious moments as he tries to figure out how to control his flight.

The show also does a great job of exploring the moral implications of having superpowers. Javier is initially excited about what he can do, but quickly realizes that with great power comes great responsibility. He has to decide whether he wants to use his powers for personal gain or for the greater good, and the show does an excellent job of exploring this conflict.

Overall, The Neighbor is a fun and engaging show that is well worth watching. It has a great cast of characters, some genuinely funny moments, and a unique take on the superhero genre that sets it apart from other shows in the same vein. If you're looking for something that combines humor and heart with a dash of superhero action, then The Neighbor is definitely worth checking out.

The Neighbor is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (18 episodes). The series first aired on January 1, 1950.
