Just curious, has everyone else given up on this show just as I did? I noticed that this is the first new novela that nobody else is feeling too much and hasn't commented on. It's a shame this novela is so boring. Does anyone know when El Rostro De La Venganza is supposed to come on and what time?
I'm not feeling any love from TW for this novela. I think it's exceptionally well done. Some here, I guess, are calling it boring because they're not interested in political activities in Colombia in the 80's.
I feel like it's a fascinating portrait of a society of haves and have nots, corruption, and the awful power money can have (the money that Escobar earned as a narco).
I can see how this is boring, the accents, the slang, and how it jumps around, I find it difficult to follow,
but on the other hand, it's quite fascinating to have some insight into how this guy did what he did, becoming one of the world's richest men, and what a guy with too much money does.
and it's also interesting that instead of being a documentary, replaying his known history, it's more novela-istic in that it gives us an insight into what he was really like, with the lessor things he did.
it's also amazing how much effort is being put into the details.
OK, Deb, I changed myself to my user name. I agree with everything you said. The accents are difficult, but I remember a lot of the slang from watching El Cartel. And the location shooting in Colombia is great! I think the guy playing Gonzalo, his cousin, is doing a GREAT job. He was Willy in La Reina del Sur and the idiot who was used by a woman in El Clon.
