Even though this class is coming to an end, I honestly don't think that this will be the end of my telenovela watching. I have been officially hooked...congrats Dr. A! I am excited to try and keep up with the new telenovelas that will come out and continue to follow Dr. A's blog to keep up with the telenovela world. Something that caught my eye a few weeks ago was a topic of discussion on the E! News about a telenovela! I thought that this had to be a first, E recognizing the great world of telenovelas! As shocked as I was I was immediately intrigued and grabbed my remote control to turn up the volume and hear what they had to say. They were interviewing actors from a new telenovela, "RPM Miami", that is being produced in south Florida, and were explaining how this specific telenovela was going to be a test run for a new type of telenovela....a bilingual telenovela! I was literally jumping with joy! One of the actors was explaining how this telenovela is set in Miami and its going to be just like the real latin life in Miami. He explains, at home and with family you may speak spanish primarily, but when your on the streets you speak English and Spanish combined creating a unique language in itself, Spanglish. This is going to be the first primetime bilingual drama and has the chance of making history! It is set to air May 1 so everyone should watch and see what they think I know I will be watching! It seems to be a "Fast and the Furious" meets telenovela type of story but I am attaching a link bellow so you can check it out for yourself!
