Launch Pad February 12, 2022

Monday is Día de San Valentín, or Día de los Enamorados, or Día del Amor y de la Amistad, or Día de Comer Muchos Chocolates. Have a good one.

Presumably in honor of this day (?) Telemundo’s going to end their afternoon rerun of Pasión de Gavilanes and begin the new season at 10pm.

Also on Monday, UniMás is starting a rerun of Lo que la vida me robó at 9am.

Tuesday at 1pm, Telemundo begins a rerun of Bajo el mismo cielo at 1pm.

Launch Pad January 29, 2022

The funk continues.

Malverde ended Wednesday, pushing Hercai back to two hours a night until Pasión de Gavilanes 2 starts on 2/14.

I think they left the door open for a spinoff of Malverde, but if it never happens I’m sure not gonna mind.

It did leave me thinking I need to study Mexican history more, but the only thing harder lately than finding a show to really sink into is finding a book to read. Any recommendations?

Launch Pad December 25, 2021

Merry Christmas if you celebrate and Happy Holidays in general. I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones have loaded up on vaccines for Covid, flu, pneumonia, and whatever other thing you definitely don’t want to catch from whoever you’re hanging out with. Fistbump of solidarity to everyone staying home for whatever reason.

I’ve made some updates to the comments section. Let me know if it doesn’t work for you.

Mi marido tiene familia is starting on Monday on UniMás afternoons.

Launch Pad December 18, 2021

Hercai’s move to 2-hour episodes means two cliffhangers a day instead of one. It has a wrapping-up feel, but still very slowly.

Malverdes gotta Malverde. I do have to give the show some credit for having multiple female characters who enjoy sex and are not villains. Unfortunately, the show’s not really about them and they keep bringing it back to this Malverde guy.

January 11 seems to be the next day for premieres. Proximas page here.

The Vicente Fernandez bio-novela starring Jaime Camil looks like it’s a go.

I’ve been obsessed with a crochet project and I keep watching those Netflix romantic Christmas movies to keep me company. They’re pretty much as advertised and leave me with plenty of brainpower to focus on how I can make the yarn do what I want it to, even if I haven’t made that happen yet.

So, what’s new with you?
