‘The one that is coming’ It hit the ceiling in terms of follow-up a few years ago. It is inevitable that the interest of the public ends up eroding, but that does not mean that it continues to be a series with millions of followers, something that may not be too noticeable during its open broadcast on Telecinco, but it is for some time now that the new episodes premiere first on Amazon Prime Video.
In fact, its audiences in the Mediaset chain suffered when that historic agreement came into operation and now it barely exceeds 1.5 million viewers when in its heyday it averaged more than 4 per episode. It is also true that people watch less television than before, so perhaps there is no need for such long seasons, since number 13 It came to an end on Prime Video this past Friday with the premiere of its eighth episode.
As you will remember, I was not too satisfied with the start of this season 13, since it was the opportunity to make a real revolution in the lives of the former residents of Montepinar viewpoint with the arrival of many new characters as a result of their move to collusion 49. I can’t say that the best has been substantial in the later chapters, but at least some foundations have been laid for the fun to go further.
Beware of spoilers from here.
For now, the march season of Look Ibarguren after a few episodes it has done well for ‘La que se avecina’, since that plot with touches of fatophobia, in addition to not coming to mind, was very unfunny, since it ends up being going back over and over again about the same thing. This has also allowed Loles Leon and Petra Martinez have more scenes together and mess it up at the slightest opportunity. That change has been a tremendous improvement for the series, both because of its ability to create discord and for the ties with the new characters to grow, even if it is not for good reasons.
For the rest, the journey through the desert of the character of Jordi Sanchez It has had its moments, like that nice reunion with Parrales, it is also a success that the season finale does not opt for a return in style and makes it clear that the future of Seafood Recio It’s not exactly going to be easy. It is true that this has been a consequence of the fact that the plot about Adolfo Faustino’s maternity has ended up being little more than a glob with soap opera overtones and very little grace, but hey, if you have to take a false step before straightening the course I’m willing to ignore it.
For the rest, most of the new characters have felt more like accessories than creations with something to contribute. I am thinking, for example, of Alonso (Alex Gadea), which basically on the one hand has had to deal with the peculiar personality of Amador (Paul Chiapella) and on the other with the rivalry of Maite (eva isanta) with his ex, but also in Óscar (Felix Gomez) giving an excessive amount of opportunity to his friendship with Amador.
We have the great exception in 1 Izquierda, since initially it seemed that everything could be limited to the Marquesa played by mamen garcia pretending to be one thing but actually being another, with her maid doing her best to get by. That has been a constant, but the writers have known how to get more out of it, like in the episode in which she has to go shopping or the seeds that she has been developing for that enmity with Recio that is called to give us much joy in the future.
Beyond that, the new building has been a success, partly because of the rivalry between interiors and exteriors that has ultimately led to Greta’s resignation as president of the community. I hope that will also serve to boost the character of Laura Gomez-LacuevaWell, I had high hopes for her and Greta’s more uptight facet doesn’t quite do justice to the comedic appearance she showed in ‘Historias lamentables’ or ‘El Pueblo’.
All in all, season 13 has been halfway at best, confirming that ‘El Pueblo’ is a much better series. It is true that we have only seen three installments of the latter, but it was now when it was time for ‘La que se avecina’ to recover its freshness and it has only done so little by little. At least it ended better than it started and it has caused certain changes in the dynamics that invite to be optimistic about season 14. Something is something.
