This series is a masterpiece by all involved. The acting is great, especially the main two characters Arturo and Raquel. The plot very interesting, the pacing is fantastic.
52 episodes worth of well-spoken, well-written Spanish *in context* rather than plodding through a grammar workbook which treats each aspect of grammar as a separate topic. You have to think about context constantly to follow the twisting, turning plot, and the settings and scenes provide context clues constantly.
One great aspect of it is that they do not stop for tedious grammar exercises on screen, they just keep rolling through the engaging plot. If, like me, you have some experience with Spanish already and want to further solidify it, this is for you, do not think this is for beginners only. It doesn't matter whether you are beginner or advanced, there is so much dialogue in this it is entertaining even for a native speaker.
You get to see the people and places of the Hispanic realm as well as hear the accents from different Hispanic regions (Argentina, Madrid, S. Spain, Mexico, Puerto Rico).
Bill Van Patten the creator deserves thanks.
