Storyline

Spanish sit-com devised by Antonio Mercero about divorced, chemist's owner Lourdes who lives with her two younger children Quique and Guille. Lourdes' womanizer ex-husband Adolfo makes frequent visits to her establishment, along with their eldest daughter Isabel, who lives with her husband and little son in the Canary Islands. The place is also crowded with all sorts of characters: the neighboring night-club waitress Sandra, Guille's teacher and Lourde's boyfriend Carlos, police officers Romerales and María de la Encarnación, or Adolfo's alleged illegitimate daughter Fanny, who Lourdes will eventually adopt, among many others.

Successful Spanish-made family entertainment of the 90s
7 November 2006 | by jfsandinSee all my reviews

This was a very popular Spanish-made TV comedy (at least in Spain and Portugal), the series aired in Antena 3 TV 1991-96, and told the stories happening around a barrio pharmacy managed by Lourdes Cano (Concha Cuetos). Lourdes had divorced Adolfo Segura (Carlos Larrañaga), a cheeky Don Juan (i.e. "philanderer") with whom she still shared a nice friendship, both tried to bring up together their children, Quique (Miguel Ángel Garzón) and Guille (Julián González).

All sorts of funny adventures, misunderstandings and even slapstick-comedy occurrences involving this family, its neighbours and the chemist's clientèle happened throughout the series.

"Farmacia de Guardia" was one of the longest running and most successful series in the history of television in Spain. This family entertainment had an efficient mixture of fresh and smart humour with some "fluffy" sentimental melodrama, the presence of some excellent actors and actresses made all these elements work together.
