Anyone remember AMIGAS Y RIVALES ?
This was my very 1st Mexican novela I ever watched. I was just chilling on the couch and Univision happened to be on. It was the premier of Amigas y Rivales. It came on, and what a catchy tune! I was like, "Ok, i'm going to see if I understand any of this. Maybe it will help me with my Spanish."
After the 1st episode, I WAS HOOKED!
Oh my goodness! Las Novelas are so much juicier than American soaps..... My nightly ritual was to come home, cook, tend to the house, then at 9pm (i think that was the time) I was GLUED to the t.v. for one hour! The Mexican figured out it was best to not disturb me during this hour unless he wanted to be asked a million times, "WHAT JUST HAPPENED? WHAT DID THEY SAY? YOU MADE ME MISS IT!"
I was really into this novela! I did not miss one single episode. I noticed that Univision kept advertising "El Gran Final" bla bla bla........
I tuned in every night and just sat in shock watching all the events unfold and the twist and turns.
Then it happened............ One Monday, after work..... I came home, did my things around the house, got all comfy on the couch, tuned in for Amigas y Rivales........... Y NADA! QUE!!!!! QUE PASO a Jimena? a Ada Marie Lopez (just love her by the way) y Nayeli (i guess that is how it is spelled) DONDE ESTAN? QUE VA A PASAR AHORA????
Immediately I went to the Mexican and was soooo upset. He was like what happened. I proceeded to tell him that Amigas y Rivales wasn't on and I had been looking on the t.v. guide and it looked like it wasn't coming on tomorrow or the next night either. The Mexican started laughing. I was furious! What! Tell me! I can't stop watching now!
El Mexicanito explained that las novelas are not like American soaps that are on for years and years and forever! They are like little mini-series!
I was in shock! All the chisme, all the twist turns and excitement GONE like that????
Now, i'm somewhat of a novela pro. I've watched a couple. "Munecas de la Mafia" y mi mas favorita de todos "No hay Paraiso sin Tetas"
I've seen advertisements for one starting este Miercoles called "Teresa". Anyone know anything about it?
