Not being a fan of Soap Operas in General, and Spanish Soap Operas in particular (I don't speak Spanish!), I would have never thought I would never watch, much less enjoy, a Spanish Language TeleNovela. When I heard that TELEMUNDO was closing captioning some of it's programs in English (NBC captions some of it's programs (Jay Leno for one) in Spanish) I thought it might be interesting to see how it works. LA PRISIONERA was one of the programs closed-captioned. As it turns out, it is a highly entertaining show to watch and read. Although it can be rather predictable and relies on a well-used plot, it is well acted and enjoyable. The tension between sisters Guadalupe (played by the beautiful Gabriela Spanic) and her sister, Milagros (Gabriela Roel), can be cut with a knife and makes for some interesting viewing. Libertiad, played by the young and lovely Genesis Rodriquez, is a typical teen-ager with all the typical and predictable teen-age problems, complicated by the situation between the Mother that raised her (Roel), and her escaped ex-con (falsely accused!) Birth mother (Spanic). If you want to escape your everyday life for an hour a day, I recommend watching this great show.
