Did You Know?


Because (as of mid-2017) lead actress Kate del Castillo is under investigation by the Mexican government, she was unable to film her scenes for this series in Mexico. Actors would film their scenes piecemeal on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border: footage of the actors with Castillo were shot in San Diego, California, and shots that could be done using a double were taken in Mexico.

Ingobernable is a superior show. It follows a serial format with short seasons that are popular today. I watched two seasons over the course of a couple weeks, and I loved every minute.

The First Lady of Mexico finds herself in the midst of intrigue that is illustrated by the dichotomy of the corrupt and powerful and those who live in fear and fight to be treated with dignity.

The characters are well written and three dimensional. Each episode is fast paced.

There is something about Spanish language production that have really made me a fan. They commit to the story, and go for it.

Kate del Castillo leads the ensemble cast. She was in the Telemundo production of La Reina del Sur, and again delivers a strong performance.

As First Lady, Emília Urquiza, she wants to fight corruption in Mexico that plagues the life of the innocents.

There are twists and turns, heartache, friendships, loyalty and betrayals.

The production values are stunning. Sets include a presidential palace and desperate neighborhoods.

Even if you need subtitles, it's worth watching. I noted there were complaints about the subtitles. Not every sentence spoken in one language translates well to another language, but the subtitles serve the story well.
