Launch Pad (February 20, 2021)

This week

A difficult week has me considering dropping Loli from the recap list. Other than that, no big changes.

Here’s the current lineup:

Let me know if anything isn’t working correctly.

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’m considering dropping my viewing of Loli, just for lack of time. In contrast, I’m completely hooked on Frida, loving every minute!

I’m having some issues with how Silvia Navarro is talking in this novela (her diction). She mumbles a lot or barely opens her mouth as she’s speaking. It seems to be her way of signalling that what she’s about to say is comical. Often the subtitles can’t keep up with her and, instead of coming off as amusing, it’s just irritating. It makes me think that she’s not really at ease doing comedy.

You hit on all the points that bother me! I’m also tired of seeing Loli drinking excessively, then apparently driving herself home afterward.

She does seem to be doing some sort of dialect, but she’s also barely opening her mouth, so things come out muffled. Octavio is also speaking a dialect, but at least he enunciates.
