For people who are concerned about this telenovela being edited...yes it's true, but in a very very very good way! They have taken out all the filler scenes and kept only the real important points and guys, you have no idea how much better it is this way, especially if you have seen it on TV and you know how much the producers drag on story lines to make room for advertisements and more episodes.
