Okay, I know that many of you are watching this telenovela with me, and the only thing more fun than the telenovela itself, is talking about what happened as if these people aren’t fictional but are actually our vecinos or something.
I love how fast-paced Los Herederos del Monte is. We’ve had a taste of almost everything: love, lust, sex, infidelity, a brawl, a cat fight, a car crash, drunkenness, confusion about a baby’s Daddy, vandalism, an attempted suicide…
Híjole! That’s just in the first 2 weeks!
After last night’s episode, here is where I’m at:
Juan es un completo imbécil. At this point, he and Paula deserve each other. (By the way, that lake they keep swimming naked in doesn’t look very clean. I hope they don’t get a rash…and when I say “I hope they don’t,” I actually mean “I hope they do.”)
Julieta should just go with Pedro. He’s sort of boring, (though less so when drunk), but he loves her. Better to pick a man who loves you than chase a man who doesn’t. She could learn to love him, verdad?
Gaspar and Lupe… they are the cutest couple. Lupe is a fool and a Daddy’s girl for not running away with him. Also, I like Gaspar even more since he lent Paula’s mother the car with the faulty steering. Jajaja…. By the way, did anyone notice the money he pulled out of his pocket at Lupe’s restaurant? Those were U.S. dollars. I wonder if this was a production mistake, or are dollars really used more than pesos? Does Gaspar have a primo working in the United States sending him remesas? jijiji…
Paula is getting more hysterical and ridiculous with each episode. When someone destroyed her office and she cut her hand, tell me how it is that tripping on a wrinkle in the carpet caused her to pass out like that? Certainly it wasn’t loss of blood from that little cut on her hand? Very silly…. Also, when she told Gaspar, “For trying to kill my mother, get out of my house” – what was with the three snaps of her fingers? It was just weird.
Lucas is growing on me. Poor kid. I hope he gets over his crush on Paula and falls in love with Julieta’s youngest sister.
Character I’m most sympathetic towards right now: Efraín … I can’t believe Beatriz told him she doesn’t love him anymore. Heart breaking.
Favorite scene so far: José and his brothers changing baby Simón’s diaper. Qué chistoso.
Subplot I’m bored with: The whole fiasco between Julieta’s parents and Paula’s mother. I can’t stand the cheesy music during these scenes. (Of course, these are Carlos’s favorite parts.)
Random thing you may not know: The horses on the show are owned by Vicente Fernandez Jr. in real life.
Real chisme: Apparently Mario Cimarro, the actor who plays Juan, didn’t want to be slapped and refused to do a scene as written. (source)
Music: I’ve noticed there are two songs they switch between. One is “Desde que Estás Aquí” by Paola Vargas and David Castro. The second one is “Me Cuesta Caro Quererte” by Marco Flores.
Which do you like?
