El Príncipe Gran Estreno Watch Party 4/12/18

We’ll have a better idea of the pacing after today, but here’s the link to the first recap.

Author: 5ftLatina

Kat is 5ftLatina. She is really 5' tall (and probably shrinking) and Latina. She is not actually a cactus, but she is both prickly and cute. Mr. 5ft is actually married to Kat, but is not 5' tall or Latina. He is also not a form of plant life.

I am happy it is just once a week. That I can do. Somehow I missed it last night but will pick it up somewhere to stay on schedule. . “ . . . scared the cat.” Very funny!

While I do like the daily anticipation of my stories, it would be nice if there were more once a week shows. Espcially dramas. Those can be exhausting when watched 5 days a week.

I think elsewhere I mentioned this having a tin of episodes. Where the hell did I get that number from? Anyway, I hope they show them all.

I think it’s my age, but I actually preferred the dress with the mother’s adjustments.

So nice to see Javi in his white shirt again . . . Seriously, it is a beautifully photographed series; just visually stunning.

The sweeping sound track with all of the strings reminds me of romantic movies from earlier times.

Kat, I am so grateful to you for your recap of episode 1. I didn’t record it (my DVR is now set for the rest), so had to watch a low-resolution version online. The sound quality was really poor, so I was in dire need of your explanations. Wow, this series looks like just what I needed to fill the gap Secretos left behind! It’s exotic and atmospheric, and the production values are amazing. It also appears to be the same length as Secretos. Even though I had some trouble with the accents, I had far more difficulty with the… Read more »

I hadn’t thought of it, but yes…it does fill the Secretos gap. I’m glad you’ll be watching!
