It's a look at the life of teenagers who go to the Elite Way School. The lead actors are Dulce Maria, Anahi, Maite Perroni, Christian Chavez, Christopher Uckerman and Alfonso Herrera. They are a part of a band called RBD and Rebelde follows them through their teenage life. They also fall in love, laugh and live together in Elite Way School.
I originally started watching this show to perfect my Spanish skills;I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. If you loved "Saved By The Bell," you will love this show too, whether you speak Spanish or not. I've watched it with the subtitles on, and the English translation is accurate without sacrificing the meaning of slang/expressions. While the show tries to tackle some serious issues that teenagers face, it does so in an exaggerated way (think the "Jesse takes caffeine pills to study" episode of SBTB). There are serious doses of comic relief, teenage romance, brushes with adults/authority, ridiculous situations, all set up in a way more reminiscent of the American teen show than of traditional telenovelas (which are basically shorter soap operas). To complete the comparison, you have the band-within-the-show, whose music is the soundtrack to every episode. Think the "Zack Attack", but throughout the show and also as a real-life (and, incidentally, SUPER-successful) pop group. I cannot stress enough that YOU DO NOT NEED TO SPEAK Spanish TO BECOME COMPLETELY ADDICTED TO THIS SHOW; there are enough posts by English speakers to prove it. Any Spanish ability you possess will only make the show more enjoyable.
