La Tempestad 1
Maybe it was the hair extensions, maybe it was his protagonist's acting, but I'm going to say that William Levy's La Tempestad was the worst novela of the year. I'm sorry for William, I know his acting was good, but the quality just wasn't there overall.
Santa Diabla 2
It's not done yet, so I'm going to put it in the "más o menos" column, because what started out as a really great production is now going the wrong way, with heavy, loud, and very depressing scenes.
Amores Verdaderos 3
This novela was hands-down my favorite. It followed the usual Mexican telenovela pattern: you know, evil rich people, benign poor people, but I loved that it showed a more mature love and a really original story. I'm getting really tired of remakes.
Marido en alquiler 5
Who didn't enjoy hating Teresa Cristina this past year? Based on a successful Brazilian telenovela, this production was among the best of the year.
La Patrona 6
This adaptation of a 1970s Venezuelan telenovela, it was actually really great! Some parts were stiff and predictable, but Aracely Arámbula showed she's totally worth the millions Telemundo is paying her!
Corona de lágrimas 7
I didn't like this novela at all. The only good thing was Ernesto La Guardia's debut as a villain. I'm tired of seeing moms as the ultimate stereotype, the suffering mamá. There was a very thin line from being devoted to being an idiot, and Victoria Ruffo's character leaned way too much to the idiotic side!
La mujer del vendaval 8
Ariadne Díaz and José Ron make a really cute couple, but the novela lacks oomph. I'm not surprised they moved it to earlier at noon.
