Last week’s posts
Our Monday Música post this week was the previous end title song, Golpes que da la vida, as performed by La Sonora Santanera featuring Reyli.
This week’s schedule
UniMás programming was disrupted yesterday (Friday) afternoon and evening for fútbol, and that seems like it’s becoming a pattern for Fridays.
Today (Saturday) Univision is showing a marathon of the first four episode of Moisés, Los Diez Mandamientos starting at 1pm/noon.
On Monday, the re-run of Un Gancho al Corazón starts on Galavision.
Monday night, the three-hour Gran Final of El Señor de los Cielos airs on Telemundo.
Also on Monday night, rehearsals for Land of a Thousand Dances begin. *gulp*
Tuesday is the big day Telemundo has been waiting for: Martres. Three back-to-back premieres start at 8pm/7c: Silvana sin Lana, Sin Senos Sí Hay Paraiso, and Señora Acero 3.
Also on Tuesday, UniMás premieres El Príncipe at 10pm/9c.
On Wednesday afternoon, there’s a repeat of the Martres premieres.
Thursday night, Univision has some Presidential primary coverage that’s disrupting the usual schedule.
You can find more schedule details, including our best available information on pre-emptions on the Horario, but you can also check for major events on the Calendar and premiere dates on the Proximas page.
Known technical issues
None at this time.
People en Español has an interview with Gabriel Soto about his character in Vino el Amor and the challenges of portraying a more “complex” galan than usual.
Plagiarism Today posted a new addition to their “Plagiarism in Pop Culture” series on an incident of plagiarism on Cheers. I know I watched Cheers, but I can’t say I remember this particular episode. And yes, of course the comments on the way plagiarism hurts authors spoke to me.
Because I am chronically uncool, I had never heard of Alice Bag until an audiophile friend shared this article on Facebook: “Chicana Feminist Icon Alice Bag on the Music of Her Life: The 57-year-old punk lifer explains how David Bowie, traditional Mexican songs, and the Disney movie Mulan helped her learn to love herself.” Doesn’t that title grab you?
