Launch Pad: The all-new multipurpose open thread

I’m sticking this to the top of the blog and I’m going to try to do it so it keeps the comments open more or less permanently without repeated posting.

Pretty much any conversation goes, at my discretion. Anything Spanish-language is encouraged.

I like this idea!

I’m still watching El Reemplazante. I’ll finish the first season today. It feels like maybe a grittier version of the original Degrassi Junior high? At least in the sense that the stories seem to revolve around the students as well as el Reemplazante.

PS: I’m sort of debating whether I want to give Mi Camino es Amarte a try. I did like MFEA, however, I am not a bit Gabriel Soto fan. MCEA is based on the Chilean novela El Camionero that I started watching back when it aired (2017ish?). Even though I didn’t really stick with El Camionero (It didn’t wow me), I can’t help but compare casts and the Chilean cast wins for me (Except Susana Gonzalez and Maria Elena Swett are both tied).

Thanks for this new discussion forum, Kat! I wish we didn’t have so many of the same faces in new telenovelas: Gabriel Soto, Sebastián Rulli, David Zepeda, José Ron, etc. Surely, there’s a big talent pool out there that remains untapped.

And from what I’m hearing you’ve got extra depressing races.

At least the big red wave (which I picture as a skin rash!) never materialized. 🙂

I read a comment somewhere that called it “light spotting” 😂

Book note: I’ve been reading “Todas las hadas del reino” by Laura Gallego. It’s really cute. It’s got 4/5 on Goodreads and 8/10 on Casa del Libro. According to Amazon it’s for grades 8-12 (ages 13-17) so I guess my tastes run young. It’s close to 500 pages but the Spanish is uncomplicated.

“Cool” is an understatement for that project! Is it another one where you sort of made it up as you went or did you use a pattern? It’s gorgeous!

Depression sucks. Super sucks.

I don’t really know what’s on TV either. I really find myself looking more at what’s on streaming services (free and paid). I’ve got a list going of what I’m going to try after El Reemplazante.
