The list author says: "I own and have watched each of these DVD sets and they all have english subtitles. Sometimes the DVD details are not correct and please be aware of the release you are purchasing since there are old releases that may be selling as Part I, Part II, etc. This list contains the most recent releases so save your money and buy the more recent releases and not from those selling "Parts".
I also included some of the DVD and TV run times. So, you get a sense of how much the story makes it to the DVD. The list is in order of DVD run times (High to low). Many of the older ones will have the shorter run times. Also, these are abriged. Typically telenovelas run 4-9 months so they have TV run times of 60-150 hours.
My top picks on this list are (based on quality of product and storyline): Alborada - which is a period piece wonderfully done, incredible costumes and pirate theme Destilando Amor - which is marvelously centered around the tequilla industry Pasion De Gavilanes - very campo, horses, bare shirt men and chaps! El Cuerpo del Deseo - reincarnation never looked so good! body of desire La Madrastra - lots of wicked twists and turns Amor Real - another beautiful period piece
Also, if you are watching them on TV, you can typically use the close caption feature. A great way to learn Spanish! close caption 1 (CC1) for english subtitles close caption 3 (CC3) for spanish subtitles
After watching them for about a year or two with close caption english, I was able to switch over to close caption in spanish. After 3 years, I was close caption free!!
If you have any questions, just start a discussion in the telenovela community and I will respond or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "telenovela" in the subject line.
