I so don't want this show to end...
1 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show is so amazing. The love story is so sweet and I don't want it to end at all. I am watching it again on Passiones....This is my second time watching it since I was younger and it has me wrapped around its finger. I rush to get home to watch it on time. I agree that they so need to make this on DVD because I would buy it. If you get a chance and you see that your TV is starting this series; watch it! Another thing, the scenery in the show is beautiful and it has better helped me in my Spanish skills. The people in it seem to live there roles and become that person and somehow even tie in together in other Brazilian soap operas as well.
