Terrific Show!!!
22 August 2001 | by (New York, N.Y., USA) – See all my reviews

The show premiered two weeks ago in the U.S., dubbed in Spanish, and I must say, it really blow me away. The characters are real, yet some act incompetent (e.g. Rolando). However, "Uga Uga" is very funny and original with a good storyline, good writing, and the best actors ever to fit the character roles. Since its airing, I, as well as many others, have tuned in every night to see what happens to our loved characters, and with each episode, the story gets more exciting. So it's common for everyone to tune in and watch. It's so popular that "Telemundo", my fave Spanish news network, talks about the show almost every night. For example, what we fanatics think of it. "Uga Uga" gained a lot of viewers and many like it so much that some are willing to dress up like Tatuapu (the main character), with the whole loin cloth thing and wearing a blond wig. Believe me, it's a great show to watch. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a show with humor, wit, and something out of the ordinary. In comparison to American soap operas, "Uga Uga" isn't your average, every day one. It's a show worth seeing, and someday, it can be considered one of the classics, like "Xica". So, if you want a soap opera that's realistic, yet hilarious, I recommend you watch this one. It'll make you laugh all the way to the end.
