Intense
16 November 2002 | by bctxcollSee all my reviews

This Spanish soap opera was intense at times. I watched this show for three months and it at times kept me hanging on, longing to see the next serie. This soap opera was about losing and regaining friendship. There were comedy scenes also. I overall enjoyed this soap opera.
