2 May 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The first time I came across this show back in 1976 I was immediately captivated. It's very repetitive, each character has his or her behavioral repertoire, but that's so much like real life, isn't it? The effect is almost hypnotic, and there is a great humanity and love of humanity (and critique) about Bolanos' creations, a very bright and interesting man. The actors are also quite good. Too bad this quaint world is only accessible to Spanish speakers. It's a kind of "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood" with much more humor and vivid, colorful characters. There is an element of cruelty one wishes wasn't there. But maybe that's a reflection of reality. Enjoyable also for grown-ups. One of the funnier lines: "Don Ramon, why don't you look for a job?" Don Ramon (with a horrified expression): "And suppose I find it!"
