Cold Case: A Time to Hate (2003)
A sad episode in this series
I didn't have the chance to listen to this episode in the original version, as the Spanish TVE started the dual broadcasting very recently with Cold Case (I daresay that no episode of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd season can be watched in Spain with dual audio). Even though, I find this episode very sad and very beautiful, and a good protest against homophobes, it nearly made me cry like the film Philadelpia. I highly recommend it for those who look for gay historic references. It's really sad how gay men were treated in the sixties by the avant garde nation the USA pretended to be.
The protagonist in this chapter was a very nice guy, it really hurts to see how he is beaten by the homophobes. I don't know if the series contains any other chapter with references to homosexuality, but it should contain another one with a new positive point of view.
La Viuda de Blanco (2006)
I have seen it since April 2007 (it was released at the beginning of 2007 in Spain) and I have never quited. Performances are very good, they have casted actors from many different countries and the most of them are very attractive.
Besides, the series is getting to the interesting part of the story. I won't write exactly where, so I don't spoil the story.
As for the plot: Trinidad, a little town in South America. Alicia Guardiola has been released from prison, where she has passed 7 years for a crime she didn't commit, kidnapping and killing her husband Amador Blanco. During this time, her two twin sons (Felipe and Duván) live with Alicia's mother-in-law, Perfecta Albarracín (known in Trinidad as Doña Perfecta), and her brother-in-law Sebastián Blanco. She returns to the town with no money and no job and all the people against her until she meets Justino Briñón, who gives her a job as the manager of his hotel. The series will go through her life in Trinidad, how she will try to recuperate her two sons from Doña Perfecta and demonstrate she is not a criminal.
