The best Telenovela ever made
26 May 2009 | by Green_AcresSee all my reviews

To me, la Madrastra is the best telenovela ever, Spanish or English. It is so entertaining, the conflicts are very well made, the acting is great all around, its cheesiness and over-the-topness is also so much fun. Jacqueline Andere and Sabine Moussier make the show for me, since they are the best actors. They are so fun to watch, so are the rest of the villains, and pretty much the whole cast. This is an example of Spanish TV gone very right. It is so entertaining and you get so hooked into it. The fact that there is a mystery surrounding a woman and her murderer is great. You get really into who is the real killer. There are two versions of the novela, the 2005 one, and the one passed in 2007. Both killers are great, but I prefer the newer 2007 version because it has my favorite character as the villain.
