The world is watching Luis Miguel La Serie and no wonder. Any Latin pop music fan has a stake in this series as Luis Miguel plays an important part in Mexico’s musical history. From the moment Luis Miguel stepped on stage at XEW where they filmed Siempre En Domingo in 1982, everyone knew he was going to be someone.
And when I say the world is watching, I mean it. Not only fans of Luis Miguel but even celebrities are watching the life of Luis Miguel play out. Only the close inner circle knew about what he had to go through to make it to the top, but now everyone is finding out. It means a lot when even the real Luis Miguel has authorized this part of his life to be exposed.
This morning, I binged watched the first five episodes via Telemundo On Demand and hope to get through the next five episodes tomorrow for another article post. First of all, I am seriously impressed with Diego Boneta’s interpretation of the star in Luis Miguel La Serie. Nine times out of ten I lose myself and see Luis Miguel the other time I am marveling in Diego’s performance. To know that Diego recorded all the songs and went through a year-long transformation into the role shows a true dedication and commitment to the show.
Growing up watching the entertainment shows like the ones shown in the first five episodes helped to paint a picture. Siempre En Domingo with Raul Velasco, El Mundo Del Espectaculos with Paty Chapoy, and Video Exitos with Gloria Calzada were featured during this group of episodes.
Though it is hard not speaking Spanish to follow along with everything that is being said, I am following along. There are certain moments where there are just a conversation and no real action happening that I suffer. It is a disservice that Telemundo didn’t take the opportunity to English subtitle the show. Luis Miguel’s popularity goes way beyond the Spanish-speaking community that they are losing prime market shares by excluding the rest of the world.
