I am from Gibraltar and I see Rebeca from TVE channel in Spain. I agree soap operas specially south american ones are pretty intense slow and sometimes boring. I mean half of the things you cant beleive the other half just don't happen cause in real life they seem 100 percent impossible. But it only depends on the views if they have the time and brain capacity to dream on with them. It is about time south american producers get a move on and start produce real facts soap operas based on normal activites like falling in love having trouble to get along but just not making it almost impossible for them to be together only until the end. We need make ups and break ups all along we should not have to wait till the very end to see then finally snog each other at last ohh and for them to find their missing kid which the neighbour has hidden next door come on... you should see a telenovela from Chile which TVE Spain is now transmitting it's real life fact 7 brother with all their problems and their mother dying of cancer real life drama really nice great acting and funny too. Venevision has decided to produce their novela in the USA which is great the only improvemnt for them is the set and the clothes it look really rich not like before you used to get these people in the barrios. Come on lets pull up socks and make these soap operas much more life relating and and not one more of the same bull **** which no one not even my granny belives. One last thing Marlene Favela is very pretty but her acting almost killed me at leat Mariana in Rebeca acts more normal. How can these actresses represent to be poor and appear with great breast implants behind really tight tops, I don't understand?

Gata Salvaje was bad, Rebeca is ten time worse. This is the first time in 5 years that I don't watch any telenovela on Univision at 8 p.m. It used to be "my" time slot. Now I finish watching "Las Vias", then I switch the channel to smth else, then I switch back at 9 to "Nina amada mia". Rebeca is not just bad. It looks like some kind of punishment of Univision to its viewers. Oh please Fonovideo, don't make any more novelas!

Univision deberia apuntar a otro tipo de producciones y no a los clasicos culebrones venezolanos por algo estan en USA y se ve un poco ridiculo que en una sociedad tan moderna pongan cenicientas, creo que en Miami o NY hay cenicientas mas reales.

I neither speak Spanish nor understand it, but the first time I watched Rebeca (by accident) it kinda got my attention. I don't understand exactly what they say but I know a lot of words in Spanish so I kinda get the general idea of what they are talking about. I have not watched a Spanish novela since "Crossroads" I don't know its name in Spanish. I think Rebeca is interesting. It is a typical Spanish soap opera where you have to be very patient. I don't know how long it will take for Eduardo (cute) and Rebeca to reunite together I am guessing months maybe since he fell asleep on his wedding day in the middle of a road in his heavenly beautiful car. I can't take all that waiting so I am thinking about skiping the middle and picking up where Rebeca and Eduardo start coming together again. And by the way Sergio, get a life old man and find someone your age.

I am completely hooked on Rebeca, even if it is slow at times, that is not like any other soap opera. Plus, it has greatly improved my Spanish, not to mention that all the actors are easy on the eyes. So even if I can't understand something, I can just stare at the beautiful actors.

I THINK FONOVIDEO MAKES THE BEST SOAP OPERAS AND GATA SALVAJE WAS GREAT! I LOVE THE ACTORS OF VENEZUELA AND ALSO THE CUBAN THEY GIVE THE SOAP OPERAS A BETTER SPICE, AND MUCH BETTER SPANISH!

Mientras la gente siga viendo estas tonterias, Univision va a seguir produciendolas. Economicamente les ha ido muy bien. Pero bien analizadas estas novelitas, como "La gata salvaje", "Angel rebelde" y esta "Rebeca", son una malhechura de pies a cabeza. Fallan en el casting, es decir en la seleccion de personajes, ya no digamos en la mezcolanza absurda de nacinalidades de los actores, sino en la concepcion de los personajes... en malas actuaciones y mala direccion, en adaptaciones horribles y poco creibles... ¿por que no hacer otro tipo de producciones mas sencillitas y menos pretenciosas, pero mas apegadas a la realidad gringa? ¿por que a la fuerza adaptar historias sudamericanas y meterlas con calzador a la fuerza en la sociedad estadounidense?.... Pero claro, mientras la gente sigamos viendo estos bodrios, ellos los seguiran produciendo. Lo chistoso es que en españa "Rebeca" esta en los primeros lugares de audiencia. ¡Valgame San Cuilmas! ¿A donde iremos a llegar?
