was that it wasn't edited. It's the complete novela with all episodes. Wow. Now that's impressive.
I bought 3 copies of this novela and gave the other two as gifts. I'm watching it again and the
only thing it lacked is that they didn't include the English subtitles. That would have made these
DVD's perfect. I hope that they reconsider and add the English subtitles because the story is SO
good and English speaking people would buy it. You guys are missing out on a lot of American buyers.
At least add the subtitles as an option. Originally when it aired on Telemundo they DID have the
subtitles in English so at least think about it.
I speak Spanish but even then, I missed out on some colloquial terms that I was not aware of. Plus, they are missing out on the English speaking market. This is like 24 but "En Espanol".
Yes, there are no subtitles. And it would really have been nice to have at least an English and a Spanish set. However, I think this was a cost trade-off. Besides, most of us 'novela watchers' either already know or have learned the Spanish language, right?
These episodes are as they were broadcast and that means that some of them start with a reprise of previous highlighted events. Also, there is the constant insertion of the song/title screen at every point where the show came back from a commercial. In a DVD set, I would prefer that this 'extraneous' material be gone so that I could watch the novela more fluidly as a 'movie'. Again, this is not that important. And, if one were to watch an episode per night, there is something to be said about keeping integrity of the novela experience as it was originally broadcast. It's a judgement and a cost call and I really can't say which way is better. Perhaps if this DVD succeeds in sales, leading the way to future novela releases, that there will be an option to turn off the previous event highlights and commercial-return segments for those who want a more fluid view of the novela.
In my opinion, this is a really great set of DVDs and a wonderful novela.
I, too, wish it came with subtitles--and I speak Spanish. But it's an outstanding production--buy it!
I WAS IN LOVE FROM EPISODE ONE! I could not stop watching it. I found myself wanting to take a DVD player to work so that I could continue watching it. I CANNOT wait to find out what happens to Teresa and to see who she makes alliances with next. I find myself cheering when she is able to find justice and saying prayers during episodes that her character doesn't get caught. I am so engrossed in the story that sometimes I FORGET that it is a story.
I will anxiously await volume two to arrive because I CANNOT wait to see what happens next in this heroines life. And she is a heroine, for she has been pushed down 20 steps to gain 1. Not necessarily a role model but a woman of strength to admire, for sure.
