"Hand me another Honey Glazed I've got acting to do!"
Soaps are pretty popular in Mexico and seem to be one of their major cultural exports. I'm told they're popular in Asia and beyond. They are basically the same as North American soaps, but maybe a little cheaper with crayon drawn plots and over the top characters. It's pretty comical sometimes and has this rushed feel to it. You can almost see the honey glazed the actor picked up off the catering table between shots still in his hand. It beats "Another World" by a long shot and it's the only thing I can watch in Spanish and still understand what's going on.
