Steamy Vignettes will appeal to even those who don't speak Spanish
Cletus from Washington DC

Okay, the acting is flat out awful, and you've seen 3rd graders write
better dialog. That said, the actors are all really good looking, the
story lines are based on real life events, and you'll see women in next
to nothing within 5 minutes after the start of every episode.
The show is a series of one hour vignettes. In each episode, the
characters are faced with key decisions that help decide in what
direction their life will take them. Since the plots always involve
relationships, there's usually several people involved. There's always
scandals, and most recently, the show's covered such controversies as
marijuana and also homosexuality (no, not in the same episode).
Since many episodes deal with tough relationships and dramatic scandals
("I slept with your mother after she did a nu-die calendar in my
studio", etc), there's usually a good cat fight or a "bitch slap". In
the instance of "bitch slappin", you'll hear a loud clapping sound, a
violently turned head, and a lot of flying hair. Apparently, getting
slapped around is standard fare on Latino shows because these actors
are really good at it.
For those who speak no Spanish, the show's captioned in English on CC3.
But you don't really need to speak Spanish to understand these plots.
Because of the steamy nature of the plots, the frequent clothes
shedding and the cartoony violence, I highly recommend this series to
fans of campy shows, soap opera addicts, and those who wonder where
ideas like "Ugly Betty" come from.
