Falsa Identidad on Telemundo
Weeknights at 9pm/8c starting Tuesday 9/11.
I wouldn't say the premiere was bad, it just got off to a very clunky start. I kinda want to see how it goes, but I don't feel a burning need to recap it. It's like, it'll be ok if I'm not paying too close attention, but if I were every recap would turn into a rant.
The guy who played Andres in Al Otro Lado Del Muro is playing a narco's hench in love with the narco's daughter. And it's not that he's not convincing, but he's just so darn cute!
The domestic violence stuff was too realistic to be comfortable. And Eduardo Yañez as the police chief whose son is abusing his wife was just...does he even care about his image?
I'm not sure what I was expecting, but somehow I was disappointed. Maybe all the violence against women was too much of a turnoff. Am I weird to really like Circe? She's not a typical-looking novela actress, and her falcon was cool!
I'll keep watching for awhile and hope it hooks me.
I liked Circe as soon as I heard the name. I hope her nana's right about her being important and getting her dad's respect. Although, her dad can basically stuff it right now with his sexist nonsense about her not being good enough because she's a woman.
It almost felt like the show really hasn't started yet. I hope there's not much more setup to go.
Second episode, and I'm still loving Circe. She's the main reason I'm watching right now. I didn't see Mariposa del Barrio, but that actress played the young Jenni Rivera. Her nana, Felipa, was Lupita D'Alessio in Hoy voy a cambiar.
Since this is a Telemundo production, why did they create a script that they were going to have to edit for bad language every couple of minutes? It's so irritating being treated like a child that isn't allowed to hear certain words.
I’m constantly having to hit pause and check the subtitles for all the words I don’t know. I think most are Mexican regionalisms. Here’s my list from Wednesday:
- huachicolero – see https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huachicolero
- máuser – we know it’s a type of firearm, but it’s also used the same way as the word “mierda” in curses
- paique – chido, chévere, qué bueno
- piocha – goatee; pickax
- arre – giddap, get up
- pelafustán – good-for-nothing
Her nana, Felipa, was Lupita D'Alessio in Hoy voy a cambiar.
I waited too long and couldn't edit my comment, but I wanted to clarify that I'm talking about Circe's nana on FI.
There were huachicoleros in La Vecina, but they called them saqueadores.
I complain about the language on the more "adult" Telemundo shows, but I think it was Sara who pointed out that if they put them on Netflix they get to use the language.
Most of the men on this show are suffering from toxic machismo.
I know it won't last long, but I liked the PM's mommy telling off Corona's dad.
HA! She's scolding the dude about his brother said he's not a narco and he's getting all nervous.
I feel bad for the kids. I think that's what's holding my interest right now is how they're going to deal with this.
Circe for cartel head! And props to whatsisface for actually getting me to dislike his character as much as I liked Andres.
I can barely watch the scenes with Corona and am dreading his manipulation of Amanda. I have a sick feeling that he'll somehow recover custody of her and try to turn her against her mother.
Saw an interview with the actress who plays Circe. Looks like we'll be seeing more of her majestic falcon, whose name is Fabulosa. Yay, two strong females!
Eliseo, you idiot! Throwing Circe under the bus. What a jerk.
I caught Friday's epi (or at least parts of it, in between getting stuff done) and I still don't know if I want to watch the whole thing.
There're a lot of characters to keep track of, and I'm only interested in the storylines of about half of them, at most. Whaddya think the chances are they'll thin the herd out soon to make it easier for me?
It's not really grabbing me. And now that they killed the falcon . . . even less. I might give it one more episode.
Damnit! Gavino had better be dying a slow, painful death. And I hate that police chief grandpa was talking smack about Amanda's mom and Zoraida right in front of her.
