Los Serrano (2003)
Missing Los Serrano
I loved this show! In 2004 I studied in Spain for a semester and I lived with a family and we would sometimes watch TV together. Now when I first got there, my Spanish was elementary at best, but when I saw this show for the first time I found it hilarious. And I didn't understand majority of the dialog! As my Spanish improved (and with TV subtitles for me to read), the experience of watching the show got even better. I even had my host mom tape an episode for me when I went out on 'Los Serrano' night. (And watching TV in a foreign language can be a great study tool.)
This show has such a universal appeal. At first it brings to mind the 'Brady' Bunch with the blended family, but that's where the similarities end as it's updated for this day and age. The antics of Fiti, Diego, and the sometimes cranky Santiago are reminiscent of Lucy & Ethel of 'I Love Lucy' and the chemistry between Marcos and Eva is hot! Unfortunately, I've only been able to witness the humble beginnings (and confusion LOL)of their relationship. And let's not forget the sweet, but often misguided Raul. Gotta love it.
Who would have thought a African-American girl from Chicago would fall in love with this Spanish gem? I wish it was available on DVD in the US. I read somewhere last year that Mexican/American network Telemundo bought the rights to develop their own version of the series, but I haven't heard any more on that. But it could never beat the original.
