Papá a Toda Madre ends

I didn’t blog much about this novela, but I loved it and it might actually be one of my favorites. Not only did it have drama, but it was funny. I laughed out loud at some of Mauricio’s antics.

Here’s a recap of the novela and all of its happy endings.

As I suspected, Fabián was Anifer’s real father. For awhile, he was fine with Mauricio keeping her. Unfortunately for Anifer, Fabián decided he wanted to be recognized as Anifer’s father. I don’t think he really had any interest in Anifer. He was merely looking for a way to hurt Mauricio. Apparently, taking Logatoys from him wasn’t enough.

Fabián went crazy. He tried to force María and Anifer to live with him, which made Anifer not like him at all. She wanted Mauricio. As a true hero, Mauricio got Anifer and María away from Fabián who then went into hiding until the grand opening for Anitoys. Fabián decided he was going to burn down the plant. He didn’t realize Anifer was in the factory until Mauricio told him. Mauricio and Fabián went into the factory to save Anifer and Fabián didn’t get out. It was a fitting end.

Mauricio ended up happy with Anifer and Renée, even though Renée decided to leave to go back to school. She and Mauricio kept it going and, at the end, we found out that Renée was pregnant. Through the course of the show, Renée also found her father, Noel, and yes, she and Fabián were siblings.

As for the others, Jorge finally kicked Dulce out and told Kika that he loved her. Lili and Pablo had a baby boy. Toño became a stand-up comic, which was odd, but probably the best career for him. Nerón finally asked Flor to marry him and she said yes. Rodrigo and Rafael adopted a boy and girl.

It was a finale that was full of happy endings. This one didn’t become the Shakespearean tragedy that a lot of novelas become at the end. The only thing that could have made this one better was Mauricio getting down on one knee to ask Renée to marry him, but I guess we can assume that’s going to happen.

Fall means my TV shows are back

OrchardAfter a summer full of reality TV, I’m glad that it’s fall and my shows are back. If you follow my blog, you know I watch a lot of TV.

The Goldbergs premiered last week with a tribute to The Breakfast Club and Superstore returned with another ridiculous episode. I love both of those shows.

Here are some of the other returning shows I’m looking forward to:

  •  The Flash – What changed now that Barry saved his mother?
  • Arrow – What will happen now that the team has broken apart?
  • The Vampire Diaries – Will Damon and Enzo return from the dark side?
  • Supergirl – What or who is in the pod from Krypton?

There are a lot of new shows premiering this fall. I’ve started watching Designated Survivor and Speechless. They both seem good so far. Next month, I’m looking forward to Timeless, which is a time travel show. I have high hopes for these shows and hope I’m not let down.

What shows are you looking forward to?

Beverly Goldberg is the best TV mom

Yesterday, we celebrated moms, so today I decided to write a post about one of the best TV moms — Beverly Goldberg from The Goldbergs. She is the best TV mom because there is nothing she won’t do for her children.

When Erica wanted to have her Dirty Dancing moment, she made sure it happened. Beverly also supported Erica when she decided she wanted to go to college in Philadelphia.

Beverly never fails to encourage Barry. Because of her, Barry believes he can do just about anything, including rapping and karate. Additionally, she constantly tells Barry how “delicious” he is. That’s her word, not mine.

When it comes to Adam, she’s managed to get the gym teacher fired over dodgeball (she got him rehired later), and helped him get over the breakup with Dana by being his assistant during a magic show so he could impress another girl. No matter what the situation happens to be, she is always there for her kids.

Does she go over the top at times? Yes, she definitely goes to extremes and tends to make things about her. After all, she’s not flawless. But like any good mother, she admits when she’s wrong. To be honest, I think this might be her best character trait. It takes a lot to admit when you’re wrong, especially with your own children, but Beverly Goldberg finds a way to do it and make everything right in the end.

Do you have a favorite TV mom?

Thank you ABC for bringing back Galavant

I watched Galavant last season and immediately fell in love with it. Unfortunately, it was almost cancelled because of low ratings and I don’t understand why. It has music, comedy, and a handsome leading man. What more could you want? My only complaint is that the season is too short.

If you haven’t been watching, here’s what has happened. Galavant’s ex, Madalena, was taken by King Richard. Galavant tries to find her and is joined by Princess Isabella of Valencia.

In the end, Madalena chooses Richard because of his power and money. Galavant falls in love with Isabella, but they are soon separated.

Season 1 ends with Galavant on a ship with pirates and King Richard who was ousted from the throne in Valencia. Isabella is locked away by her parents who have arranged for her to marry her cousin. Madalena declares herself Queen of Valencia.

This season opens with Galavant and King Richard on a journey to rescue Isabella. Galavant doesn’t realize that Isabella believes that he doesn’t love her anymore and that she has set a wedding date because she’s being controlled by the wedding planner.

Richard returns to his kingdom only to find that his castle isn’t where it used to be and that his subjects seem to be happy with democracy.

Madalena is having trouble being accepted as Queen of Valencia.

Below is a clip of what you’ve been missing.

If you have been watching, what do you think of Galavant’s return?
