No, the premise is not original and when the show started last season they were very open about it. I think there are like 9 or more versions around the world :lol: Selma Hyack (sp) is the executive producer who brought it to the US and adapted the story for the US audience.The show isn't even original, since it's all taken from a Colombian soap opera .
No spoliers then. :hug: I didn;t start watching until the second season. I had heard about the show ehn it first came out but didn't watch it. Then last summer, they had a marathon of the first season. After one episode I was HOOKED. The second season has been so great though. :inlove:This is my favourite show ever!! Seriously. I don't want to read any posts in this thread yet though since I haven't seen all of Series 2 yet. In Australia we've only had the first series and the second series isn't coming out any time soon so i've been watching them online. I would definitely have a major crush on Betty if she was real!!! :hearts:
