  • I used to watch this telenovela in Brazil, i had no idea CW was going to adapt. I don’t even know what to think.

  • The concept is so silly that it could honestly work for the CW. I assume Cw will pick up this or Identity as their none Supernatural dramas. But if the want this show to succeed the have to CHANGE THE TITLE.

  • I doubt this show could do well on CW. The premise stinks. It’s a shame because there’s a serious lack of good Latin American leads on American English-language tv.

  • what the what? just no. please give this girl a better pilot than this. you lost me at “accidentally artificially inseminated”. No actually you lost me at the off putting title. But the premise made me want to throw my chromebook at my tv screen.

  • The premise is horrible! Gina is a good actress but this pilot is crap and why does American TV always do adaptations of the worse telenovelas? And the working title sucks

  • I really want to watch this, just to get an answer to the question “How does one get ‘accidentally inseminated’?”.

  • This series won’t get past the pilot stage. If the CW feels the need to pick up a non genre show Identity seems like the better choice.

  • Have you ever seen the little gem of a movie called “Quinceañera”? Yes, it’s absolutely possible to get pregnant and still being a virgin. Petting will do this to you.

    • i don’t think petting means what you think it does.
      or being a virgin.

    • Quincenera was a dumb movie. Didn’t make sense and was overrated

  • After the premise all I could think was, “law suit.”

  • Because so many important vitamins and minerals are missing from the foods we eat, supplements
    are very beneficial. In mouse experiments, FTI treatment was able to prevent HGPS symptoms
    developing. For example, a dietary supplement manufacturer does not have to prove a product’s safety and effectiveness before it is marketed.
