La Reina Del Sur
28 April 2012 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I liked very much "La Reina del Sur". I saw all the 63 episodes. All of them are full of action, nice sceneries, Mexico, Spain, North Africa...the story is well written, above all, Tereza Mendonza is a character that makes you fall in love with her, she is fantastic. Not only her, but all the cast is wonderful. Something I liked is that even after getting involved with drug dealing, with the mafia, Teresa Mendonza kept her principles, even before, in prison, she got a lot of influence due to personality and principles. There, in prison, she would get some of her best friends and change her life forever. What is also nice to watch is the work of the agents of the DEA (Drugs Enforcement Agency.

I fully recommend anyone seeing it.
