Oh my. Is the scheduling that bad?

Ohhhh… Yeah. I’ve been trying not to think about *that*.

Yes, it’s outrageous and unconscionable. Still can’t get my head around it.

Is it a telenovela? Do you know when it starts?

Thanks, Kat! Never heard of it, but I might take a look. 130 episodes is more than I like these days, though.

I’ve seen the opening credits for it a few times back when I had cable and the tlnovelas channel and it followed whatever it was I was watching. I have to say I loved the theme song. Other than that I really know nothing about it. Like you, I’m finding 130 episodes to be to much for me these days. I think you and Kat have more stamina than I because even a run as short as 20 gives me pause. It also sort of depends on run time.

Yup! I seem to gravitate to them a lot.

Although, I have to say that I’m watching a chilean telenovela on YouTube right now. My chilean teacher recommended it. It’s 60ish episodes but each episode is less than 30 minutes. It doesn’t feel as overwhelming as a 100+ episode show. I got through 15 episodes last week, which is good for me.

Sara, can you tell me the name of the Chilean novela and if it has CCs?

El señor de la querencia. There are auto generated Spanish captions, but the chilean accent confuses them I guess because they aren’t that fabulous 😂. Even so, I’ve managed to follow along OK. Just be prepared for a lot of sex, nudity (male butts!) and misogyny.

Yes! I don’t have Netflix, but I’m gobbling up all the Amazon Prime limited series in Spanish. But it makes it hard to go back to traditional novelas of 100 eps or more.
