Decisiones on Telemundo
Weeknights at 9pm/8c
@kat, I wasn't sure where to post this comment, so feel free to move it. Thanks!
Is anyone watching the new Decisiones? The casting has been terrific. Litzy was wonderful as an undocumented immigrant in Episode 1, which also featured one of my new favorite actors, Christopher Millán. We saw him in Al otro lado del mundo. So handsome--Google him and see!
I'm not sure if I'll be watching this long-term, but it's off to a pretty good start.
Thanks for creating this thread, @kat!
I just finished the first episode. I really enjoyed it (which doesn't sound right considering the subject matter.) Honestly I found the episode more engaging than El Sultán.
I like that each episode is self contained and I can pick and choose what to watch and not worry about keeping up with a story long term. I tried the second episode but was a little grossed out by the coach/student relationship so I'm probably not going to watch the rest. I'm moving on to the third episode.
Oh wow. Emilio did not attend the sexual harassment workshop.
I really enjoyed episode 3 as well. It was a little predictable but Laura Flores is fun to watch. And the actor playing Emilio has really grown up! The last time I saw him was on Abismo de Pasión. I was impressed with his performance here.
I’d never seen him (Emilio) before, but he totally sold me on his character. The cast in this series is uniformly impressive.
Didn’t you love the actor in Episode 1? I’m so envious of anyone who masters English and Spanish so well. He was also very good in AOLDM (and handsome!).
Oh, I'm so glad! I liked how things just snowballed in that episode (one bad decision leading to another) and how it paralleled the real-life case of Pablo Lyle (whose story just breaks my heart).
One thing I'm enjoying about this series: Except in rare cases, like that of the sex video episode, the writers have done a great job showing that people can make horrible mistakes, but still generate our sympathy. Today's episode about the hit-and-run driver was like that. While they don't excuse criminal or negligent behavior, the writers are creating complex characters that provoke conflicting emotions in the viewer.
