Cape Town – If you’re channel flipping tonight and can’t decide what to watch, you should tune into Telemundo (DSTV channel 118).

Before you thumb your nose at telenovelas, there are a few things you need to know: the storylines are gripping and filled with intrigue, you eventually get used to the bad dubbing and unlike American soaps they usually have about 100 episodes which means they do come to an end.
