Thanks to the Mrs. I started watching this with her.
It's in all Spanish so I watch with subtitles. It is actually kinda teaching me Spanish. Sometimes throughout the day words I cannot pronounce but are spoken in the 'Spanish' accent pop up in my head. I checked and words like "Quiet" "What" and "Boss" are so far stuck in my head in Spanish.
My favorite part of the series is the woman playing the young Celia-she is an absolute stunner!
The show is really good and has me interested in Cuba in a whole new way. Of course I love that they don't shy away from the colorism and flat out racism involved in colonized nations but that's not the crutch of the show-and frankly I am surprised to see it even mentioned in a Spanish speaking production.
The show is based off the life of Celia Cruz, a woman I didn't even know existed until this show. Again, great show-historical-real. A little over dramatic with the crying every 10 minutes and drama of some of the female characters...but I am told from my Caribbean wife that's how Spanish Speaking soap operas are.
