This might be impossible but I am looking for a Telenovela that might be more interesting to a guy. I do not want to be insensitive... just trying to find something I might like. Right now I am considering buying La Fuerza Del Destino. Any good ideas? I am just entering level 5 (in a week or two) and am planning something for when I finish.

Oh... and of course, if anyone has ANY Telenovela that remains interesting, please help. I am motivated by an article I read on CNN that touted Telenovelas as a way of broadening experience. I also watch movies and have several that I like. Terminator, Casa de Mi Padre, Ladrone que Roba a Ladrone, etc.

Sonia recommends many things at the end of the lessons and I have followed several of her suggestions (I love Julieta Venegas!) so I have a hard drive full of stuff but I wanted something I could concentrate on for the long term.

I like Dueños del paraíso. It's a female lead, but it's drugs, cartels, and violence--lol, so trade off I guess. It's on Netflix.

Gracias a todos! I found ´El Señor de los Cielos´ which some have said is a great Telenovella for guys to try. It is on Amazon. I also looked at Narcos, La Reina del Sur ( someone sent me the DVD!) and will check out Dueños del Paraiso. I like Netflix! However, I like to have the DVD and convert it to a file so I can pause, jump back 10 seconds, reread or re-listen to the dialogue. I did that with a couple of movies and it seemed to work well. Thanks again for the suggestions!

Wow... Just finished lesson 5 level 5 and in the closing Sonia recommended the Netflix series ´Club de Cuervos´ Just saw the first episode and it is funny. I have to watch it with English subtitles but I´m picking up on most of the Spanish. It has three seasons so I have something to binge. I think this is right down my alley. Gracias Sonia and Fluenz team! PS... it is not a family series... the language is pretty rough sometimes but overall it is a hoot to watch.

I just started "Money Heist" (Originally "La Casa del Papel") on Netflix. It's a Spanish series, so I expected to really test my listening skills out, but I was surprised to find that it's dubbed in English, so I turned on the Spanish subtitles to compare the English they choose. You can also switch it to the original Spanish audio if you like.
