Ferry the Series is a Dutch-Belgian crime drama television series created by Nico Moolenaar and Bas Heijne. It is a prequel to the Netflix series Undercover and tells the story of Ferry Bouman's rise to power in the Brabant underworld. The series is set in the early 1980s and stars Frank Lammers, Elise Schaap, Huub Stapel, and Tom Waes.

Ferry the Series follows Ferry Bouman (Frank Lammers) as he starts out as a novice ecstasy producer and gradually works his way up the ranks of the Brabant underworld. Along the way, he has to deal with rival drug lords, corrupt police officers, and his own personal demons.

The series begins with Ferry returning to Brabant after a stint in prison. He is determined to make a name for himself in the drug world, but he quickly learns that it is not going to be easy. He has to deal with the established drug lords, who are not happy about his intrusion. He also has to contend with the corrupt police officers, who are on the payroll of the drug cartels.

Despite the challenges, Ferry is determined to succeed. He is ruthless and ambitious, and he is not afraid to use violence to get what he wants. He also has a knack for making deals, and he quickly builds a network of contacts in the drug world.

As Ferry rises to power, he also has to deal with his own personal demons. He is haunted by the death of his brother, and he is struggling to come to terms with his own sexuality. He also has a complicated relationship with Danielle (Elise Schaap), a woman he meets at a fairground.

Overall, I was very impressed with Ferry the Series. It is a well-written, well-acted, and visually stunning series that is sure to appeal to fans of crime dramas. The series also boasts a high production value, with a realistic and gritty depiction of the Brabant underworld. 

The series uses authentic locations, costumes, and music, to create a convincing and immersive atmosphere. The series also features some stunning cinematography, editing, and sound design, that enhance the tension and suspense of the story. The series also has some impressive action scenes, that showcase the skills and stunts of the actors and the crew.

One of the things that I liked most about the series is its complex characters. Ferry Bouman is a complex and fascinating protagonist. He is ruthless and ambitious, but he is also charismatic and vulnerable. The supporting characters are also well-developed, and they all have their own unique motivations and goals.

Another thing that I liked about the series is its realistic portrayal of the drug world. The series does not shy away from the violence and corruption that is endemic to the drug trade. It also shows the human cost of drug addiction.
However, there are a few things that I did not like about the series. One thing is that the pacing can be a bit slow at times. Another thing is that the series can be quite violent.

Ferry: The Series is a well-made and entertaining drama, that serves as a worthy prequel to Undercover. The series offers a fascinating and thrilling insight into the life and mind of Ferry Bouman, one of the most intriguing and complex characters in the Netflix catalog. The series also features a talented and charismatic cast, a compelling and suspenseful plot, and a rich and immersive atmosphere. If you are a fan of crime thrillers, or if you enjoyed Undercover, you should definitely check out Ferry: The Series.

Final Score – [7/10]
