Spanish sit-com where David awakes after being 18 years in a comma only to find his world completely changed. He'll have to struggle not only in his search for identity, but also with his neurotic sister Carlota, his Marxist next-door neighbor Sole and her son Paco, and David's secret love interest and distant cousin Laura. As the series evolved other characters joined the crew as some of the initial ones gradually disappeared, among the new ones were the waiter Gonzalo who eventually married Carlota, his promiscuous little sister Vero, or Sole's other son Félix.

Unfunny and eventually tedious
18 January 2007 | by (Zimbabwe) – See all my reviews

The show clearly started as a vile 'Friends' copy, whoever denies this should pay more attention, some plots and scenes weren't changed at all. But the 'Friends's stage only lasted a couple of years, the post-coma plot disappeared and the series became a standard comedic show. Once there it became repetitive and bland. The kind of humour in this show was formulaic and predictable, just awful. A short conversation always preceded the punchline read by an angry character to the 'dumb' one followed by the canned laughter. Later, they included political jokes, giving a 'political' dimension to some characters, this was, in my view, a mistake.

The cast significantly changed throughout the years, and not for the better. I deeply respect Javier Camera and Amparo Baró's performances but I can't say the same about the rest of the cast. People like Eva Santolaria, Guillermo Toledo or Santi Millán should be kept miles away from a camera.

The success of the show can only be explained with the lack of competition and the abyssal level of Spanish TV.
