Old Telenovela format disguised in new clothes
This is one of the new genre of Mexican shows produced as "Netflix Original". It starts of strong but by the 3rd episode, it deteriorates into an old Telenovela format. The direction and story line is poor, and very fragmented. There are some sub-plots that start off but never taken to completion. Events occur but without any explanation as to how or why they have. Dialog is silly and the background music often drowns out what the actors are saying (perhaps mercifully). The main selling point of this is the usual beautiful people to be found in Mexican Telenovelas, all very wealthy, living a life of excess. As the series progresses, it deteriorates further until it just becomes too silly and the viewer eventually loses interest. It's really a shame that it never ever realizes its potential but instead, rapidly deteriorates into stupidity!
