I can't believe Vinci from 8th and Ocean is in there. =O
So being a latin person I obviously watched a lot of telenovelas and I have to say that even that I now don't like them, I know how it works and it's not really that campy and that cheesy. Carlos Ponce is a great actor so he should get to do more in there other than narrate what's happening.
Some of them really made me believe I was watching the telenovelas I used to watch when I was younger like Giovanni, Berto and some other people I don't remember the names. Some of them didn't. One thing is true, the telenovelas that Telemundo produces are not like that. They are actually very high quality, not so cheesy.
