Is it just me, or are we in a major telenovela rut? Or is it Covid blues?
If a look at the Proximas list has left you confused, it’s not you. Univision/Televisa and Netflix/Caracol really are producing dueling Vicente Fernandez bioseries.
Malverde’s in últimas semanas, finally.
Hercai is going back to 1 hour a day on Monday.
I’ll be giving Madre a watch over the weekend.
What are your viewing plans?
The blog’s birthday is tomorrow and I didn’t get it anything. Oops.
Another season of Exatlón starts Tuesday on Telemundo.
Madre takes over from La Desalmada on Tuesday as well.
Happy New Year! We can now begin accidentally writing “2021” for the next six months.
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.
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?
Hercai is moving to 8pm/7c and giving us two-hour episodes. Por amor o por dinero will only air for an hour a night. Changes start Monday.
Carmen Salinas died on Thursday. QEPD.
As of now, the only new show we know about is Pasión de Gavilanes 2 starting in February.
At this point, I’m thinking any new shows won’t start until the new year.
I’m still slogging through Malverde. You can find all my complaints on Twitter @ElCoheteBlog
Also still watching Season 2 of Hercai. They’re slowly building up to revealing all the secrets, but I’m not sure how much more show there is to do that in.
I hope you’re all having a good weekend.
What the fuck is this nonsense?
That’s all I’ve got.
