TV Viewing Diary: Epitafios

Last night we watched part 1 of this slick Argie mini-series from 2004.

Only in Latin America would a plot-point revolve around a protagonist's inability to make a crucial call because he'd run out of saldo on his mobile!

Returning to the theme of recent posts it will be interesting to discover whether this was a thriller premised on its ending or on its beginning. Though the strapline el final está escrito could be a bit of give-away.

12 more episodes to go; but I'm hooked already. "It's just a telenovela," V noted derisively. Ok, it does have moments when we see close ups of the characters immobile heads set to a few seconds of melodramatic music, but sometimes those heads aren't actually attached to bodies.
