So angry at the series finale
13 May 2008 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

The show, other than the last episode, was excellent, which is why I gave it a 9. It would've gotten a 10 if it weren't for the finale.

WARNING: There is a HUGE spoiler here for the end of the series, so if you haven't seen it yet, don't read on.

I was SUCH a dedicated viewer. I didn't miss an episode of the 125 episodes. They were so good. You never got bored with the storyline, you were always interested, and the entire show went at such a fast pace.

Killing Colomba at the end of the last episode of the series is a complete lack of disrespect to the viewers. Was that really necessary? The whole reason people watch novelas is because we want to suspend reality for a moment and believe in happy endings.

I feel like the writers spat in my face. You get attached to the characters and their lives and suddenly not only are they yanked away, but the kill off one of the lead characters (who was my favorite on the show).

I mean fine, great, so most of the supporting characters ended up with whoever they were supposed to be with (save Genaro and Olga Mia, but I don't really care about them anyway), but what's the point if the most important relationship is just killed (literally)? And what was with that? It wasn't even believable! Women don't randomly die after giving birth, and at the very least, the doctors should've seen that something was wrong and tried to save her, but they didn't. And why would you just give up 2 minutes (literally) after giving birth? Fight! If, say, the writers would've flashed forward a couple of years and at least given Ricky a new wife, then MAYBE it would be excusable, though that would not be acceptable either. The worst was that weird look that Ricky and Catalina exchanged when he dropped Alicia off at her place. What WAS that? I am so angry, I can't even express it. I don't think I was ever this angry with a series finale (of any kind, and that includes all the American shows that got canceled in the middle of a cliffhanger).

I'm pretty sure I would not have watched the show, or stopped in the middle, if I would've known how this was going to end.

If the Chilean novelas are like this, it's a good thing I never watched one before, and I'm pretty sure I won't watch another. I think I'll stick to the Argentinean novelas. At least when they end everyone is happy - including the viewers.
