Launch Pad February 19, 2022

Mi fortuna es amarte starts on Monday at 9pm on Univision. I keep thinking I’ll give some of these new shows a try, but once they come around I’m just…meh.

I feel meh about everything. I can’t wait until Spring. I’m so done with winter.

I saw DZ and Susana Gonzalez in La Flaca Y el Gordo today to talk up Amarte es mi fortuna. . I actually found DZ sort of sweet and charming.

Amarte es mi fortuna seems to have a fairly good rating on IMDB. I think I’m looking forward to watching.

I’m going to end up disappointed aren’t I?

One thing I always found interesting about DZ: he has a law degree!

Oh yeah. I had forgotten about that! You know, he did seem a little nervous in the interview. I wonder if he still isn’t used to that aspect of the business.

He’s still not my favorite, but I am really liking him in Mi Fortuna.

My thoughts on the first episode of Mi fortuna-
I liked the cast.
Some good music.
For me it was a lot to take in.
I will probably watch the next episode, but at the same time there wasn’t anything spectacular about the first episode (except for the mariachis).

I just saw this in my twitter feed-

Is this supposed to be the replacement for SLS? It doesn’t strike me as being necessarily about la farándula.

Right? That’s exactly what I thought!

Thanks so much for the heads up, Sara! Since I’m not watching anything on Telemundo at the moment, I hadn’t heard a thing about this. It’s a good cast, but it does sound more like The View, rather than the kind of dish-the-dirt show I’m looking for, LOL!

(Kat), I’m not getting notifications about new posts, even though I’m subscribing to Launch Pad comments. Is it just me?

I mean it’s not like there’s anything new happening in the networks in regards to shows.

It’s Alma de Hierro right? I think the only way I can get that channel is to get fubotv and the base price for that is too high not to mention I have to pay for an add on to get tlnovelas. So not really worth it to me because while I appreciate the older offerings of that channel I can only think of two shows I watched all the way through: Cuna de lobos and La verdad oculta.

I hear that PrendeTV is going to become ViX in late March. I wonder what the recent Televisa-Univision merger will mean for the offerings and how long it will be a free app.

I take back everything I’ve said about David Zepeda. He’s doing a great job in this latest role.

Or I should see that since I’m also watching LFDD at the same time I can compare the two performances and I feel like he’s improved.
