The show was set to last until the death of dictator Franco, but the huge success made the producers keep doing more seasons. In a recent interview (2010), Imanol Arias told they would continue until the 1981 coup d'état. See more »
This series must be the best Spanish series of the decade. Every Thursday (it's on Thursdays) it's number 1. This means that nearly all Spain has watched this.This happens every single Thursday except when there is football.
I'm a huge fan of this series because of lots of reasons. It is a perfect mix of fact & plot. Depicts the era perfectly from an insider's point of view and keeps the viewer immersed in the life of the Alcantara family.
If you are not watching it, I would start by buying all the seasons. It is really worth it. It has won lots of prizes, it is the Spanish TV series by excellence. I hope you will enjoy it if you see it like I've enjoyed it the past 10 years. This is the best Spanish cinema.
When I come home on Thursdays, I come home to see Cuentame!
