Vino el Amor #81; Wednesday February 22, 2017: Vino el miedos (fears)


We begin where we left off yesterday with David and Luciana in an embrace and kissing. Luciana tells him that she is very happy but doesn’t want to cause him any problems. David says, “Well this is why we are going to take things slowly and quietly so that we don’t lose everything that we have worked for. But then DisGrace barges in. (Her presence always seems to spoil the party).

Vino el Amor #80, Tuesday, February 21, 2017: Vino el New Novias


This episode was kind of a mish-mash transitional episode. David is happy, not grumpy, but he makes a lot of other people grumpy with the news that he's got a new girlfriend! And her name is not Gracie, which makes Gracie quite unhappy. Fer is happy about her new boyfriend, but not so happy about Dad's new girlfriend. Miguel still seems like he's heading for a new novia himself though, even though he still keeps reaching out to the old one.

(Just a small note that I'm scheduling this post early because I'll be busy all day Wednesday and Thursday. So if I missed anything, just please correct me in the comments. Thanks in advance for all comments!)

Some scenes combined for clarity:

David declined Graciela's offer of money for the land purchase. In fact, he intended to go to the bank for a loan and start paying her back for the previous money she poured into his vineyard. Before she could whine and cajole he took his leave.

Vino El Amor #78 Friday 2/17/17 -- Every party needs a pooper that's why we invited you....

No party is a party without a little drama, tears, fights, the party crasher and that one guest who has to be a party pooper! I counted three in this episode. 

Fer can't believe this is happening, but Tano says this kiss is filled with all of the affection he feels for her.  She's a magical girl..a princess and the more he gets to know her the more fond he becomes of her.   He thanks her for everything she's done and for making him smile again.   Fer says if tonight was already perfect, he's made it unforgettable. They share another sweet kiss before Tano thinks it's best they go back inside before Fer's father realizes they're missing.  Fer says she'll treasure this moment forever.

Vino el Amor #77; Thursday February 16, 2017: Love Wins; sealed with a kiss


Continuing on with DisGracie’s little “guess who” game she is very upset that David guessed Luciana instead of herself. David apologizes, but DisGrace is insistent about “What the hell is going on, so why did you think it was Luciana? Why did you think it was her and why did you confuse me with her?” David just replies that nothing is going on and to PLEASE forget it! But DisGrace continues to insist that she will not forget it.

Vino el Amor #76; Wednesday, February 15, 2017: Blessings, parties, thieves, and guess who came home?

Repeated scene: Luciana argues with León about her relationship with David, finally gets tired of the gossip, and admits to León that she and David are together. Meanwhile, Marta is on the stairs listening and then she has a hissy fit with Luciana about her relationship with David. Lu explains that she tried not to get involved, but admits that David is the man she loves. Marta says, “No, that can’t be!” Marta begins to grab Lu and shake her and tell her she doesn’t want Lu to suffer all her life. Of course Marta is projecting her own bad experience on to her daughter believing it’s the same thing. Lu explains that her love for David is very strong and she will suffer without David. She just feels very badly about hurting Miguel and having to hide this from everyone. Marta is talked out and says “Good night”. She is very angry with Lu. [Marta better get a grip here and give her daughter the freedom to choose her own man.]

Vino el Amor #75, February 14, 2017: Vino el Fer's Party Plans, But First - Have You Heard About Luciana and the Patron?


On this very special Valentine's day episode, we get bullying in the school and workplace, some missed connections, some party planning, some smuggling planning, some charity planning, some campaign events, a smidge of wine-making discussion, and a TON of workplace gossip! In other words, go on your Valentine's Day date and skip this one! Although it did feature rare smiling from Grumpy David and about two seconds of Luciana actually working!

Vino el Amor, Lunes 2/13/17 Chapter 74: Conflicts Brewing



Some scenes combined for clarity:

During the confrontation with Erika, Luciana accused her of attempted corporate espionage and of moving in on Miguel on the heels of their breakup, even of trying to poison his mind against them. Erika said that Miguel is a better administrator than whatever they have but Luciana has no authority over that. She noted that Luciana didn't try to accuse her of stealing Miguel as a novio.

Upcoming Telenovelas: Stevey Tells Us What’s Happening in Mexico

The following post is from Commenter Stevey, who shares all he knows about the new telenovelas in the works in Mexico, that we may or may not see eventually in the U.S.

Hi everybody!!  In the past, I've tried to put together a little 'fact sheet' for you guys in regards to what's going on telenovela-wise 'South of the Border', in the land where they come from!   As I realize that whatever it is the staggeringly disgraceful boobs at Univision decide on by way of programming, will ultimately entail just what it is that YOU guys get to watch up yonder, America-way.  Some will make it, some will not... and god knows which will be which (hell, with the Univision execs being what they are, I doubt even HE knows!).  But, that being said, I wanted to come up with a post that hopefully you will find informative, enlightening, useful, entertaining, or any combination therein!  I apologize for its stupefying length, but it's a labor of love to be sure (I just hope it isn't as such reading it!)  To avoid editorializing (I unfortunately do that enough once I get going, for which I apologize... FWIW, I'm writing this paragraph last, so I know what I'm talking about here...), I'm just going to get right in on things, and on the projects that we've got on hand right now, or are already actively in preparation in some way...

Vino el Amor – Episode #73 – Friday 2/10/2017: It’s David and Luci United (Por Fin) Against the World

Some scenes have been combined and may not be in order.
 
Los Frijoles de Ayer
David and Luci stand together in the sunlight on a path in the vineyard, not very hidden from view. They declare their love, pledge their troth regardless of the obstacles ahead and kiss on it. Their first obstacle as a couple is to try to hear each other over that annoying singer who manages to drown out most of their declarations, making it hard for the Restless Patio to hear as well. They decide kissing is more productive.

El Arroz de Hoy
Still in a clinch and breathing heavily, Luci tells David they need to get back to work. He has other work on his mind, but Luci prevails. The walk arm in arm while Luci discusses how to go organic. Although Susan has already given David a lesson, he says he wants to hear it from Luci and listens attentively. He hopes the organic wine will reflect the passion and love they have for each other. (Oy vey, how maudlin.)

Speaking of Obstacles Part 1
For David, his first obstacle comes in the form of a visit from Adolfo, who has come to talk about winning the prize (Miguel, that is). Adolfo probes a bit. He wants to know why Miguel left. David explains they had some problems of late, but nothing to do with his work. Just let it be said he no longer felt comfortable working at Bodega Los Angeles (BLA). Adolfo is ok with a young man wanting to get ahead in life and choosing new opportunities. Then he challenges David to a duel of the wines in the upcoming competition. It’s his bodega with Miguel and Erica against David’s. He’s sure his wine will win handily. David is just as sure it will be his wine that wins because he has Luciana….and all the rest of the workers, of course.

Vino el Amor #72; Thursday February 9, 2017: Will Love Conquer All?


Repeated scene: As Susan is in the lab, David walks in and tells Susan that this batch of wine must be the best in their vineyard’s history. David wants to win the competition against the Santa Barbara Vineyard since Miguel works there now. Susan catches on to what’s going on so she asks David, “is this really about the vineyard, or about Luciana?” David admits this is about both as Susan knowingly shakes her head. Susan wisely advises him to not let this be personal and to keep his head on straight. It should not be about beating Miguel or Luciana and remember the things that are important.

Vino el Amor #71; Wednesday February 8, 2017: Against all odds, the romance resumes


(I am out of town and not able to deliver the quality as I usually do. But I will put up pictures later and make some edits. Most things I've just abbreviated.)

We open with a montage of everyone getting along well. It ends with Miguel giving the keys to David and last report. Marta and the other employees give their loving goodbyes to him.

David and Luciana are in the Cava talking wine stuff that seems to be mixed with love talk. Lu doesn’t want things to go too fast just in case it doesn’t work out. She relates what happened with Miguel. David says they will figure it all out with love and patience. But then DisGracie calls….

Vino el Amor, #70, February 7, 2017: Vino el New Opportunity


Decisions are made, threats are made, whines are made and immigrant deliveries are made. Better: Miguel sanely decides to leave the vineyard of threats and whines and illegal immigrant fines but not much wine, except for the poisoned batch that he was the only one ever worried about.

Vino el Amor, Lunes 2/6/17 Chapter 69: Advice


Some scenes combined for clarity:

Miguel cried as Luciana broke up with him while going through the best-friend-vs-lover thing. She didn't want him to hate her and he said he never could. He wondered if he could ever look at her as just a friend. After another round of verbiage on this, Luciana and Miguel kissed their childhood love goodbye.

Vino el Amor, Viernes 2/3/17 Chapter 68: 10,000 Pieces of Silver


Just the facts, peeps:

We come back to David telling Miguel he loved Luciana and will fight for her. Miguel told him he wouldn't make it easy for him, accusing him of wanting to leave. David said he wasn't going to ask him to but if he wanted to it was his decision. Miguel said he was going, then walked out the door.

Lillian walked in on Bobby playing his video game and tried to give him cookies, but he wasn't interested; Marta had already given him some. She tried a little harder but as with DisGracie the previous episode, they had no interests in common. Lillian looked frustrated.

Vino el Amor #67; Thursday February 2, 2017: No sense or sensibilities, or "How to fight over the same woman"


We open where we left off yesterday with Miguel and Erica in town caught by David. As David leaves, he tells Erica to give his regards to her father, but he does not look very happy. Erica remarks, “So what’s his problem?” Miguel say, “I guess he just didn’t like seeing us together.” They say their goodbyes because Miguel says he has to get back to work.

Vino el Amor #66; Wednesday February 1, 2017: Mark goes to Jail; DisGrace called to Spain


David and Luciana are conversing outside concerning Bobby and his well-being. The conversation then gets personal between David and Luciana. David notices that Luciana looks sad. She says it’s just a lot of things, mostly having to do with her mother and Gutierrez. Then she mentions Miguel….David says, “What about Miguel? Are there problems with work? Is there anything that I need to worry about?” Luciana replies, “No, just personal problems. I don’t know why I said anything.” David responds, “It’s okay if you don’t want to tell me about it I respect that. But tell me one thing: I need to know if you have forgotten what you felt for me when you have been with Miguel. Because I can’t forget….” Luciana says, “It’s best that you say nothing because there is nothing we can do to change or fix things.” David says, “I’m not so sure about that. Before I move on to with things, there are a few things I need to take care of and fix. I don’t want to do anything that will hurt anyone.”

Vino el Amor #65, Tuesday, January 31: Vino el Tiffs, Tantrums and Threats


Lovers quarrel, a room is raided, a body is found, lovers vent to their friends, various villains and non-villains experience various levels of guilt, non-lovers quarrel, a room is trashed, threats are made, a room is trashed some more, lovers quarrel again, and yet - the world still apparently revolves around Bobby, unless you are an evil human trafficker or Gracie, in whose case it revolves around David, whose world revolves around Luciana even though he claims it revolves around Bobby. Busy episode!

Vino el Amor, Lunes 1/30/17 Chapter 64: Out of the Mouths of Babes, II


Graciela came back for Bobby, whom she had spotted on the floor of the Marital Shrine when he had been hiding under the bed. She grabbed him when he tried to bolt and he told her quite vociferously he did not want to be sent to a boarding school.

Luciana wondered why Bobby ran off. David wondered whether the ceremony had been bad for him, but that didn't seem the case. They had asked workers whether they had seen the boy and David was feeling like an idiot. He thought about when he walked off with Graciela when Bobby had wanted to play and felt worse.

Telenovelas, Jan/Feb 2017: What’s Happening Now; What’s Coming Soon?

Amigos,

There are a few changes coming to primetime telenovelas. Here’s a rundown of what’s happening now on Telemundo, Univision and Unimás, and what’s coming soon. Feel free to share any intel in the comments. 

Univision:

Despertar Contigo sprints to its finish. Its final week’s episodes will be shown in 2-hour slots, 7pm-9pm, this whole week. After that, Univision does NOT seem to be in any hurry to bring in another 8pm telenovela, and instead will run the new season of its kids’ talent show, Pequeños Gigantes (the original version of Little Bigshots shown on NBC that’s hosted by Steve Harvey).  

Vino el Amor, currently in the 9pm slot, is doing so well in Mexico, it’s been extended. Let’s hope it continues to heat up on the vineyard, and we soon learn why the Mexican audience wanted another serving of vino. So far, this wine has mainly been making us sleepy.

El Color de la Pasión is in its final weeks in the 10pm slot. After moving along at a rapid clip for 80+ episodes, it’s hit a lull before what’s sure to be an exciting final few weeks.

Telemundo:

La Fan recently started in the 8pm slot, and so far is a very enjoyable comedic telenovela, worthy of the talents of its leading lady, Angélica Vale (La Fea Mas Bella). It’s a fun look at the lives of telenovela actors and their fans, and perfect for anyone looking for a light comedy with heart. La Fan is only two weeks in, so it won’t be hard to catch up!
