The best show ever!
14 January 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Really, if you didn't watch, you have to! If you like comedy, it's a rule to watch any episode of this fantastic TV series. It was done for kids, but whoever watches it will get hypnotized, and enchanted by the charisma of every character on it! "El Chavo" or "Chavo del Ocho" tells the story about a poor boy, Chavo, that supposedly lives at the house number 8, but spends most time, or better, whole series, into a barrel. And a lot of things happens, with him, Chilindrina, Don Ramón (my favorite character) and everyone! Each episode means, a lot of fun! It's really amazing how it never gets old. It was done in 73, and even in 2004, kids watch it and laugh of the same things over again. Even adults, and teenagers, watch it and again laugh of the same situation. It's really magical, and even Bolaños can't explain how he did that! And it seems, we will have much more 'Chavo' in the years to come, and people will keep watching it, and it'll have the same high ratings, every time it's being aired on TV. Really, it's something fantastic. I think it's like the only Mexican TV-show that had that kind of acceptance in every continent it was transmitted. So if you haven't watch it, I suggest you to give a try for this humble and very good intentioned series, that has a very nice message too. :)
