Telenovelas are an integral part of the Latino family. Women that work at home watch several novelas a day. Spanish television channels show them Monday through Friday almost all day long. There is a brief interruption to show the news and talk shows in the afternoon. These novelas last from 6 months to a year. The theme good versus evil is always present. Viewers divide the characters between “Buenos” and “malos”, good and evil.
