Before the first few days of class I honestly, believed that telenovelas were like soap operas and that they were all like Days of Our Lives or General Hospital. After a few days I learned that absolutely any plot was possible in a telenovela and that none of the were like Days of Our Lives or General Hospital. I'm not a huge TV or movie person, but when I do watch TV I prefer action and suspense filled rather than romance or drama filled. To find out that telenovelas offered all of that really helped me in choosing my telenovela. The telenovela that I chose was exactly that. Alguien te mira tells the story of a botched friendship that eventually leads to one of the friends who couldn't join their plastic surgery. Instead Quintana opted for a lifestyle in a rural clinic while the friends he went through medical school with are making a small fortune in a plastic surgery clinic. When he visits his friends in the city several deaths occur there--little do they know it is him. This telenovela represents the exact opposite of a traditional telenovela. It it barely a love story, it involves the main character as a criminal. Alguien te mira really is the definition of an atypical telenovela.
