I was iffy when I first saw it on Comcast On Demand but now I actually don't mind it. When I lived in South America, the center of the city was like a ghost town come novela time. I think the telenovela look may be intentional. Considering the cast and the potential to bring in a new audience that sop programs like this up with a biscuit it just may be a smart move if they happen to strike a nice balance.
At certain points during last night's episode, this show seemed to be more telenovela than reality show.
I think the girls Marysol was referring to were her employees. The melancholy music with Elsa staring wistfully out the window completely fooled me. That was a good fake out move if that was intentional.
I almost fell out of my bed laughing when Marysol came over, mentioned her daughters were putting up fliers for Elsa's missing dog, and then the missing dog ran into the room to greet Marysol.
There is something very typical about the eccentric Latina matriarch, we all have one (I've got several!)
Ditto! I can see that in the Sierra household too. Lucero strikes me as the vocal type who's not big on bullshit while Dad just sits there, smiles and nods.
