 no, missed first couple months

For two reasons.

1. I didn't believe the pregnancy plot. It's 2012. Impossible to believe that a budding tennis star's career could be hurt by a pregnancy. In today's world, it would have gotten her more publicity and probably a lot of good will when Rodrigo, as he would have, married her in some huge, mammoth celebrity wedding. And, even if the "destroy her reputation" argument were true, in 2012 no well-known tennis star could be taken out of the country and hidden without at least a dozen celebrity reporters discovering the truth.

The short version: it is 2012 not 1950. the plot wasn't plausible.

So, I concluded that this was going to be a silly novela and not worth my time. (I made the same mistake about Terra Nostra: I thought the way the two lovers were separated was silly and there seemed to be too many stock characters - obvious villains - in the first weeks. Then, of course, it surprised me and I am watching the rerun.)

2. Al Compas del Son was on at the same time, more or less, and it was the first Cuban novela I had ever seen. It was interesting and surprising and, given #1 above, the better choice.

So, I didn't start watching regularly until after the coma ended.

p.s. I hope my use of the subjunctive - a mess in any language - wasn't too confusing. I couldn't think of any way to avoid it.
