The main aspects of an Anthology series is that there’s new drama and characters every week. Personally, these are the ones that get most rage from me, which fuels me to watch more and more ;3. Usually if I hate something I stop engaging with it but mexican anthologies are rooted deep in me..since my childhood. I used to enjoy watching these because hnnn the drama and then the moral of the story seemed nice. The shows I watched were supposed to be Catholic. I was a very religious child so I guess I felt that warmth of faith from them. Times have changed and I feel an annoyance towards them. The reason for that is because they are HYPOCRITICAl and DUMB OMFG. Sorry the mia in me came out, anyway their morals are bullshit because none of those scenarios would happen in real life and they’re very sexual hisss.

La Rosa de Guadalupe

The rose of Guadalupe hehe. The formula of the episodes were like this:
  1. Person, probably a child is going through something bad
  2. Things get worse
  3. Pray, Oh shyt! A white rose appeared “Where did this come from?"
  4. Things get fixed, the person’s hair blows in the wind with holy music playing while rose fades away The modern ones have the main character talking about the lesson behind a white screen
I watched these every week and loved them. The lessons would be simple: Kid is bullied, Dad is an alcoholic, Child is in danger, all of these totally relatable for your average latino. There was new episodes every week and as the writers tried to come up with new stuff, the lessons got weirder. The ones that tried to get out the norm would sometimes be criticized heavily, for example,one on a pair of weeaboo teens. Yea it might’ve been cringy and a misunderstanding on their part, but I can take that to the dookie lessons now. The ones that appear now are just really sexual and unnecessary, a contrast on their whole CATHOLIC theme. They need to realize that children are watching >:O.
One episode that made me snap was uhhh ok I can’t remember what it was called. What I do remember was how STUPID it was. Here’s what I remember: There was a group of girls who never liked doing their homework and their teacher would complain. On a night of the test they decided to do One Direction magazine quizzes instead of studying. In panic, they decided to get their parent’s sleeping pills and put them in the water pitcher that their teacher drank from daily. They wanted her to be asleep so that they didn’t have to do the test, if I were them I would’ve just tooken the L. Things go wayyy worse though. So the teacher drink its and the pills haven’t been processed yet, then their friend, a fuckin nerd, asks for some water. He drinks it and gets an allergic reaction caused by a chemical in the pills, which make him have a seizure. The teacher panics but the pills take her too, she falls to the ground, asleep. The whole class panics which slows down the whole emergency process and the ambulances probably comes in late. The kid ends up in the hospital and is brain dead from lack of oxygen since the paramedics didn’t get him on time. Literally everything are the girl’s fault. The episode ends with the girls crying and I don’t know if they got punished or not. I don’t know why that episode got so dark and I don’t know what kind of lesson they were trying to convey. Study? Check your pills for chemicals that can make your friend seize? GOdam.

Come dice el dicho

"Like the saying says”. By saying they mean a proverb, specifically mexican. At a time I thought this one was the better replacement for Rosa de Guadalupe. I was sorely mistaken though ahahah. I don’t know any of the proverbs but the stories were incher sting. Until they became literal pornos! Okay ya I’m exaggerating, but these are 2x more sexual than the Rosa show. They literally start out with a couple making out in a very passionate, nasty way. The show comes on during the day so they’re trying to corrupt our latin youth! I hate how they’re all uwu religious and traditional and then they pull out that crap. At least they accept the gays though. The episode that made me go ham was one on an overbearing mother. She forced her daughter to do gymnastics and then complained how her daughter was ungrateful. I know that most parents can be strict in a Mexican way but this went beyond the average parenting. It was emotional and physical ABUSE. When her daughter broke her ankle during gymnsatics she blamed it on her. During the recovery, her daughter ate some pizza and when she gained weight her mother ripped her out of bed during the night and forced her on the treadmill. The daughter constantly tried to talk to her but was shot down. Finally, the daughter got a gun and threatened to shoot herself. Then OOOo the mother was crying and begging for forgiveness. Then it ended happily ever after. What makes me so angry was the 180 on the mother's character, that doesn’t just happen in real life. It bullshit because once your an abusive piece of shit its hard to get out of those habits. Both she and her daughter need therapy. I probably shouldn’t angery for a lil mexican show but its deep, I swear! What kind of message are they trying to give? Mexican society doesn’t take therapy/psychology seriously and that episode isn’t helping anyone. Its detrimental!!
12/5/18 While at the dentist's office I had nothing to do so I watched Como se dice el dicho. BRUHHH It was crap, but in a good way. So there was this poor girl who sold tamales and some rich boy fell in love with her. Then her grandma told him to fuk off because he's rich. That part was so stupid for me because if I was struggling and selling tamales in the street I would be GRAPEFRUIT that a richie rich would want my granddaughter! The rich boy's brother was mean but very attractive (this is important BTW). Anyway the rich boy is disowned because of love. Then he lived with them and would always go on his bike with the girl to sell tamales. In the last 10 minutes of the show everything was going perfect, then his brother was speeding and fuckin ran over his own brother who was on the bike The show ended with all his loved ones crying. I gasped when the credits rolled. Why would they make all this complicated star-crossed lovers story just to show a lesson on safe driving with bikers???? That was literally the lesson "Los bicicletas deben tener espacio tambien" Like omg sorry for going ham but wow.
I would have hated this episode and gave it 1 mia star but a very special seen appeared.. During the ending, it showed the brother (very hawt) stripping because he was going to prison his bulge was huge omg. Great fanservice thank you >83 Ok Punchy OUT-->
