I watched this on DVD from the local public library. I was hoping I'd get a good understanding of the Mexican soap opera, but I see here that there's 170 episodes. I told a friend that the story moves along quickly--well it would, won't it, if well over a 100 hours had been distilled to 13 or 14 hours. I often felt like I was watching the Reader's Digest version of a soap opera, and found out I was indeed. So I'm guessing the pace is really like, say, a Korean drama-if one had watched the original "Destilando Amor" on broadcast TV.
I like the male and female leads well enough, they're likable characters. Yanez looks and acts like a Mexican Clark Kent in this yarn, causing me a few smirks.
