Summary: Now Quin really does want to kiss Samuel

A/N: Necesitaba fic. Aquí es. I never intended to write LCDA fic - apart from anything else, I do tend to think it ought to be written in Spanish! But Quin owns my soul, and he wanted this written. Thanks to[info]clonesgirl for checking it made sense.

Capitulo 8  

 

 

 

 

Last episode ever, and I’m sad already. First chance on the computer all day, it’s 9:35pm, and in contrast to last week, it doesn’t look as if the ep is up yet. I suppose it makes more sense to wait until after it’s finished airing in Spain, which I suppose will be 22:20 BST.

 

So, I finally found the ep at 22:15, but I had to go via Antena3videos and search for it. And it’s taking forever to buffer! WHYWHYWHY.

 

Right: summary - I enjoyed this episode, and was very anxious to see how it all turned out. I don’t do clever analysis, and I don’t understand most of what was said. So this is about my visual impressions, and my little excitements about understanding a few words. Oh, and the awesome that is Inspector Jefe Joaquin Gallardo - that man is gorgeous. With lots of love to [livejournal.com profile] clonesgirl, my fellow-traveller on this short and slightly bitter-sweet journey, and many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] may_potter and [livejournal.com profile] lynx_moon at [livejournal.com profile] lcda.

 

  

Cut for Spoilers and Squee )

I have thoroughly enjoyed this show, even without understanding most of what was said. I have quite fallen in love with Quin, and I really got to like Samuel, too. In some ways I even like him more than UK Sam. It’s a great pity Antena3 didn’t give this show a fair chance in a timeslot it could have won, because some of the series two stories would have been awesome with Gallardo y Samuel.

 

I loved this show, and I will miss it very much.

I am so sad about this news; I'm actually crying here. I love this show so much; far more than I ever expected to. I am really, really disappointed. That is all.

They clearly do things quite differently in Spain! I got an email from [info]clonesgirl at around 5 or 6pm to tell me this episode was up on the website - several hours before transmission. I was so annoyed about waiting four hours to get on the computer to start watching,

 
Overall assessment - not enough Gallardo! This has been an episode where I really wish I understood what’s going on. The story seems quite different from any of the UK stories, and I’m quite lost! This is the first episode I’ve watched straight through without stopping all the time to translate stuff; it’s also the first one I’ve watched more or less “live”, so I haven’t been able to see what other people have said about it to help understand. So I definitely need to watch again soon.

Note to self from 1.03 commentary:

 

In the trailer for Capitulo 4, I think Quin calls Sam señorita again, and does he call him Karina? It’s probably “cariño” which means - Sweetheart!!

 

This seems to be the June episode - we see Sam scrubbing blood off the street, and we see the girl in a hospital bed. I hope they have the post-coital ciggie scene!

(By the way, there is a spoiler for a part of the episode where their plot is different from the UK original.)

 

 

 

So, here we go: )

There's just something about this show - uh, that would be Quin - that makes me want to make pictures, when there are so many other things I should be doing. Please do feel free to correct my Spanish - I'm just making it up at the moment.

[livejournal.com profile] clonesgirl has let me know that Antena 3 have now made Capi 6 available at their site; I haven't had time to watch it all yet, but we see some more examples of Samuel realising just how different the world was back then, especially for women.

Go to Antena 3 Videos and click on La Chica de Ayer underneath the video window. Icons for all six parts of Ultimo Capitulo come up at the top right of the screen.

It's a little difficult for those of us who don't speak Spanish to get the full value yet, but I'm enjoying this series very much anyway, and I laughed at the scene where Quin is forced to apologise to a group of women and thank them for all sorts of things. (What, I don't know. But it was funny anyway.)

Do leave a comment over at [livejournal.com profile] lcda if you have anything to say about the episode. Most of us are not in any position for intelligent debate and analysis on the ep or the series yet, so feel free to make any observations you like!

ETA: There may be spoilers in the comments.

As it seems unlikely I'll be writing fic for La Chica de Ayer - what with not understanding a word they're saying - I thought I'd do some more pics as soon as I get time.

I have an idea for the wonderfully slashy park scene in ep5 , but I need to know what Samuel usually calls Quin - does he call him Quin, or Jefe? Or is there another word (like Guv for example) that he uses?

Any Spanish speakers watching who can give me some clues? I plan to post some thoughts on the show later, but the pics need doing first!

With grateful thanks to Antena 3 for the opportunity to watch La Chica de Ayer. I just couldn't resist this...

I’ve been watching a bit of Spanish LOM - and I like it rather a lot.
