Did You Know?


Antena 3 canceled the series in the summer of 2006 with high ratings, because the production company Miramon Mendi was bought by TV broadcaster Tele 5, the direct competitor of Antena 3. The show was moved to Tele 5 and converted into "La Que Se Avecina", featuring mainly the same cast of the last season (except for Fernando Tejero, Luis Merlo and Emma Ozores) playing new characters and situations also involving a crazy group of neighbors.

Impressive cast for an impossible sit-com
27 November 2012 | by underwatercloSee all my reviews

"Aqui no hay quien viva" ("No way to live here") is a comedy series based in the everyday life of an average neighbors community in a building in an undetermined location in Spain. The best of the series is an outstanding cast of comedy actors able to manage the most absurd and hyperbolic situations in the fine way of actors highly trained in live stage, achieving solid characters the public gets very fond of.

The situations and characters created by the scriptwriters are exaggerations of real life stereotypes, as "la pija" ("posh", a young woman too busy caring for her own image and trying to distinguish herself from the common people), "los cuquis" ("the darlings", the stereotypical young married couple with children), Mr Cuesta, the president of the community who takes his charge as seriously as a real life politician with the resulting parody, the building caretaker, a survivor trying to deal with the demands of a crazy community, or the three senior ladies resembling a bit "The Golden Ladies" whose main occupation is gossiping and being in the middle of every single affair as real conductors of the life in the building.

The series has been very successful in Spain and some of the actors and actresses in it have jumped to well deserved major roles in important cinema productions, as Fernando Tejero and Malena Alterio, who form now one of the most successful and robust comic duos of Spanish cinema and have proved their talent in dramatic roles as well.
