The History of Telenovelas!

I have long said that telenovelas (Mexican and Latin American soap operas) rule. It appears that the rest of the world agrees with me.

Sigh. Why don't we have any Spanish language channels on the cable here (well, except the morning programming on EWTN)? Sigh.

    Though I barely understand spoken Spanish, I watched a telenovela one year with my mother when I was in college. The story ran for three or four months. There was much sordid behavior but one thing I noticed, if I recall correctly, was that the nice girl had a civil wedding with the guy, then the bad girl had a civil wedding with the guy, and the whole thing ended with a big Church wedding between the first, nice girl and the guy. I guess that's a touch of the Catholic culture from which it came. (Mexico, I think)

    I am now watching Amarte Asi, Frijolito (sp?). It's a great way to practice my Spanish!
