Dr. A warned me, and I didn't pay her any mind...but she was 100% right. I AM HOOKED! I analyzed Dónde Está Elisa for my identity and representation report, and the more I watched the show, the less of an actual assignment it became. My favorite part of the show? There was a GAY character which is very modern and progressive of the show.
The love triangles in Dónde Está Elisa were SICK. Elisa, a 17-year-old girl had sexual relations with both of her first cousins, and her uncle— and no, I’m not joking. All of the main characters were ridiculously attractive and I even started following a couple on Twitter! I could go on forever talking about the show, but then I’d just be writing another paper. I just wanted to share how amazingly addictive and dramatic las telenovelas are.
Funny story— So I’m in the SLC watching an episode during one of the peaks of the plotline and Viviana discovers her husband’s wedding band in her gay best friend’s bathroom. Needless to say, I squealed like a little girl which received some stares from other students, but I didn’t care because it was THAT crazy.
I’m currently on the hunt for a telenovela just as intense so I can spend hours of my life watching fictitious people fight, kill, yell, and partake in illegal activities.
