  • Terminales (Chasing Life) is an original mexican series from Televisa, the same people behind of the original version of Devious Maids. Latinamerican series actually are really good, and I enjoy to see the US versions. Not all our shows are Telenovelas. There are a plenty projects based on latin shows like “Mi Problema con las mujeres”, “La Lola”, “Los Simuladores”, “Rebelde Way”, “Epitafios”, “El Pantera”, who wait for a greenlight.

    • Add to that list is Mirada de Mujer which is the most untelenovela of all the telenovelas I’ve seen since childhood.

  • Glad to see him back on TV, although wish the show sounded better. I seem to remember reading somewhere that his Anger Management character is a love interest for Michael Arden’s Patrick; if that’s true, well, that’s downright adorable!
