La Casa De Papel is more of a gold heist than a money heist now but not much has changed in the show since the first season. The bullets are still flying and the entire plot is interesting to follow with no way to predict who is going to be alive in the next scene and which direction the show will take. It is nearly impossible to select one show running at the moment that would replace the show for any Money Heist fan. The fans have to wait a few more months for the final part of the show though and while you wait, these are the 10 other shows to binge on for the most exciting experience.
