“The faces, Juan, the faces”: I am sure that this phrase could be applied to all of you when you read that, indeed, I haven’t seen a single chapter of ‘There is no one who lives here’. Let’s see, not to miss reality, when it premiered on, I mean Antena 3?, I must have seen a piece of a chapter.
More than anything because I have the memory of the names of some of the residents of the famous building and basic traits of their personality. But whole, none. And see reruns again? it has not happened. I couldn’t tell you why. I suppose that, in its day, I was busy with other things and, now, it’s like the time has passed and I can’t find the opportunity to wear it anymore.
The thing is, even though I haven’t seen it, I have not been able to avoid popular knowledge and have information about the series. And it is that, ‘There is no one who lives here’ is such a great cultural reference that, even I, who have not seen it, have phrases from the series that continue to form part of our day-to-day life incorporated into my usual proverb. Anyway, “shut up, Mr. Cuesta” and get to the point: this is what I know about ‘There is no one alive here’ only from what I have seen and heard out there.
This girl was always very cute
I don’t know why this phrase has stayed in my brain forever, but I know that I have only heard it in isolated videos or been told it, but I have never seen it in the context of the series. Was the posh one the one who was always very cute? The other blonde girl who was a friend of Malenia Alterio? You are asking me questions that I don’t know how to answer. Please stop.
If the phrase had existed, we would have told Mauri “friend, realize it”
See a homosexual couple in a series 20 years ago it was groundbreaking enough. I understand that. But I already didn’t like Fernando then and he didn’t deserve Mauri. And this is all I have to say on this subject.
“La hierbas” throws Loles León for the sale because she wants to stay with her husband
Let’s see, this is the same as having heard bells and not knowing where. It wants to sound to me that “the herbs” and Mr. Cuesta get involved after the character of Loles León dies. And it comes ringing to me that she dies falling out of the window. My brain has decided to unite both facts and has decided that “herbs” pushed her to steal her husband. I’m not sure if it’s based on real events, but I like to think so.
The goalkeeper and the character of Malena Alterio are involved but not even she knows why
Does the neighborhood ever find out about this mess?
The posh boyfriend and Mr. Cuesta’s son had a somewhat shady friendship
Okay, this guy (Roberto? Was his name Roberto?) was a bit immature, as I understand it. I don’t know why, I just visualize him playing the game console. But you will tell me What is a 30-year-old man doing spending more time with a 12-year-old boy? than with his girlfriend. Come on, I don’t have all the information, but it seems strange to me.
The three older ladies have a kind of lesbian-polyamorous relationship
That they are the coolest in the neighborhood and, in addition, they run the show, I have it clear. Now, I don’t know if this other thing is something that is openly hinted at in the series or I have invented it, but I have always assumed that the three ladies have a polyamorous relationship between them. The typical “they are friends who live together”, but in three. Tell me I’m not alone in this and it’s something known. I want to believe.
