Anyone else watching this on sky arts? It's blooming amazing....I loved downtime but recently it's gotten silly and this puts it in the shade. Why can't Downton be this good? !

Yep you aren't alone I am addicted too!

Are we the only ones ? don't know anyone else ....

Diego ..the epitome of mad bad and dangerous..sigh...

He's hot though! Yes just watched tonights there...very exiting and lots of twists. I just think its far superior to the like of downton in terms of plot and not treating the audience like idiots. I hope there will be a second season!

Yes I'm watching it too! I saw a trailer and set it to record. I think I enjoy it because I actually have to sit and watch it and concentrate rather than playing games or MNetting!

I love the way Julio had to get his top off at least once per episode! wink

Did you see maison close as well? It was in French but not many hot men! I can't wait for next Weeks episode...

Oops I accidentally hid this thread. Will posting on it again yet me onto active convos again?!

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Mon 31-Dec-12 14:05:14

I've got two episodes to catch up on!

bluer Mon 31-Dec-12 18:11:00

Ah you'll need to have a night and put your feet up to enjoy!

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Tue 01-Jan-13 13:12:39

Well I'm off work and DH goes back tomorrow so I'll be able to watch them then! smile

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Wed 02-Jan-13 18:10:45

Ooh, ooh, I'm caught up!

bluer Thu 03-Jan-13 13:38:35

It was great eh? felt so sorry for Julio that his sister turned out to be such a disappointment! But a kiss at last! Can't wait for Sunday...i'm going to be bereft when it ends

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Thu 03-Jan-13 13:41:25

Yes, she's turned into a right cow bag hasn't she?!

The kiss was awesome, definitely a long time coming!

bluer Thu 03-Jan-13 20:20:08

Haha I was shouting at the TV! Got a bit excited over it all! I don't think Diego will let her go however...

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 03-Jan-13 20:26:41

No chance they'll just walk away from The hotel!

blue you feeling brave enough to join the PESH now?!

bluer Thu 03-Jan-13 22:23:48

Yes I should! Feel a bit out of place with the besh now, don't want to upset anyone <shame of being insta differ>

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 03-Jan-13 22:36:34

Nah, just cos you got diffed soon after joining the BESH doesn't mean you can't be a PESH! I'll go and bump the thread then you can join. Go on, otherwise I'll be well lonely come February! smile

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 14-Jan-13 10:59:45

I'm catching up with the episode from last night. AIBU to think that's the worst hiding place for a letter, ever?!

limitedperiodonly Mon 14-Jan-13 11:17:39

I've got the final episode to watch. I do like it but it's really daft - especially Julio. He does that head-dipped, sideways glance to portray everything from troubled/angry/stifling his passion for the virginal Miss Alarcon or a burp.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 14-Jan-13 11:35:37

Oh dear, they're a bit crap at preventing murders aren't they? They've tried to make it obvious who the 'gold knife murderer' is now....

Julio does a lot of side tilting and smell the fart acting....

Ladytron Mon 14-Jan-13 14:31:08

Until I saw the last epi, I didn't think any actually cooking went on in that kitchen!
I had my money on him being the gold knife murderer!
Poor Andres sad

limitedperiodonly Mon 14-Jan-13 19:39:19

Andres could live. He only has blood pouring out of his ear. Lucky don Benjamin's not around to scold him for the mess he made of the top table.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 14-Jan-13 20:02:46

My medical experience tells me blood pouring out of the ear is a bad sign....but this is a period drama so who knows? I can't imagine they'd do the big reveal of his secret identity just up bump him off hmm

But gutted Alicia went through with it....can't imagine that'll be a marriage made in heaven!

limitedperiodonly Tue 15-Jan-13 10:55:04

I think a miracle recovery is on the cards too having. smile

Who do we think turned the electricity on? Presumably it's one of the people who knew about the letter. But that would be too simple.

Why has dona Angela not told anyone Andres is Senor Alarcon's son? Surely the evil mother knows anyway? She knows everything else (forgotten her name).

I'm just trying to get my head round the idea that Angela was once a hot minx like Belen.

Ladytron Tue 15-Jan-13 11:09:16

Limited - re the letter, you would have thought Dona Teresa would have destroyed it after Snr Alarcon died. Then if Angela came forward, who could prove it confused
Electricity - someone who wasn't at the wedding...? Belen wasn't too shocked by Andres spreadeagled across the table...

Anyone know cuando Series 2 starts?
