I thought this was just weird
Friday, September 15, 2006
Since I don't have cable, I get to watch whatever is on the local channel. Renee likes to watch Desperate Housewives, and so I watch and have grown to like the show (just don't tell anyone).
So I found this show, Amas De Casa Desesperada
, quite...I don't know...weird.
Latin America gets a few of the North American shows untouched, however, some are actually translated. I, personally, couldn't imagine watching "The Simpsons" translated into Spanish. There would be too much lost in translation: what about all those North American pop-culture references? And what about "Doh!"? So many questions that in the end it would make the show unfunny.
Anyway, I didn't know that Spanish networks actually did adaptations of popular shows. I watched the trailer of this adaptation and the shows seems to be the same, with the only change being the actors. At the bottom of the page it does say that the show is based on the original Despereate Housewives, so it is assumed that this is some sort of "franchise." I wonder what they would call Seinfeld? "Sinfil"?
