Thursdays Weeknights at 11pm/10c starting July 19 August 27. I'm guessing they're starting at Season 1.
ETA: I guess I should have put this in Proximas, but apparently my subconscious has already decided I'm watching it!
OK, I've got it now. They've dubbed it into Spanish with a Mexican accent--I can't say I'm happy about it, but it's a plus for people who have trouble understanding the Spanish accent. The recaps and episode numbers aren't going to match up exactly because they're using the Netflix cut, not the one they used last time they aired this on UniMás.
What the hell? They dubbed it into Mexican Spanish? I guess I sort of get it. SuperEsposo and I had had to watch a British film with subtitles once so strong accents even in your native tongue can be hard. It's disappointing though. Full disclosure - my current self challenge is to get better with the peninsular accent so I'm trying to watch more shows from Spain.
It's so weird, but I almost think I'm going to wait for Thursdays, figure out where the episodes start/stop as far as the recaps go, and then watch with the original sound on Netflix. While the dubbing in and of itself is well done, I miss the variety of voice tones--I mean, Tío Emilio has that rich deep voice in the original and on the dubbed version that quality is missing. It felt like such a part of his character. When he speaks there's that authority in his voice.
I got pretty far behind. I've just gotten to the day before the wedding and the uncut version was a lot more stress-inducing than the edited version. And I'm sad the first time through they left out Blanca telling Luisa that what she did didn't make her a bad person and she needed to let go of her guilt.
Thanks for confirming what I thought about the dubbing. My Spanish is not good, and I rely heavily on the Spanish captions, so it took a little while to figure out what was amiss.
You're right; it's just not the same without the original voices. While watching Totalmente Diva, dubbed over Portuguese, I had to check out the original voices. The voiceovers were mostly spot-on, but one in particular sounded liked like a Saturday-morning cartoon character.
