I have to say that I managed to watch about 20 episodes out of 80 on this series and every time something would bother me. How come someone would put so much effort in developing a story and putting so many artifacts that are not factual and far from reality? Come'on, this is a recent historical event that happened in known locations; we know the outcome and some of the people are still alive. Why create such an elaborate lie when this series could be based on a true story with some additional details?
Anyhow, if you want to waste your time watching this, be my guest, but honestly this is just an absurd story based on a real character. None of the events you see there actually happened and the writer & director didn't even bother to include some facts into the story-line. Pretty amateurish.
However, some of the actors did well ... others horrible. Also, aren't there many Colombian actress who could have taken the lead role? Again, the casting manager failed to get the right people and used someone who does not even has the right accent. Every time she opened her mouth I would get distracted by her accent not knowing what country it's from. We know the story is about a Colombian lady, so why not have a Colombian lady in the main role?
Again, very amateurish ...
