I have to say that what started as a well written telenovela (Santa Diabla) with an intriguing plot and story line, has become one of the worst novela's I have ever seen. Did the writers get hit in the head? Did they draw a blank and just try to stretch out the novela and just came up with the utterly most ridiculous story development script that make absolutely no sense and are ridiculous.
It's a travesty that viewers are engaged in the beginning with good writing and good story line, however, this novela spiraled downhill. It's a shame. It's all over the place. None of the characters or the stories are consistent, tie well into each other, makes sense. IT IS FAR FROM CONSISTENT. So many inconsistencies. It's horrible. Really horrible.
I will not watch another novela by the same writers since it is obvious that it turns into a huge disappointment. How can producers and director's allow such garbage to be written as we have been painfully subjected to these past two and a half months. Truthfully, it's anti-climatic with no desire to even watch the last episodes.
As a writer, I can say that writing has to be consistent, intriguing, a compelling story line, one that engages the readers/viewers, not one where the majority of viewers are so disgusted over how the script and plot has taken a dive off a cliff.
Sad, very sad. I would have hoped, like a good and well written book or story line, that the past 6 months I have been watching Santa Diabla had not turned out to be such a waste of time. Guess it was.
