Video/YouTube Reviews


Could Selena possibly have been as sunshiny, as generous, as self-possessed as she appears in Christian Serratos's performance? Aside from changing her hairstyle perhaps too often, was she really without flaws?
"Pretty much, Unless you woke her up. That was probably the grouchiest you were ever going to get from her."
- Suzette Quintanilla for The New York Times.


My Favorite Scenes from Part 1
little girl gives Selena a light up white rose.
That split second when AB hears "Dame Un Beso" on the radio.
The talk with Laura Canales in the restroom.
When Selena meets Chris for the first time.
the "Amame" scene
The whole relationship between Selena and Chris - I want to see more!


My Thoughts:
Going in, I was extremely excited to finally watch it. I stayed up from 12am - 5:30 am to binge watch the series - part 1.
My initial reaction was a bit disappointing that there wasn't more of Selena and that Selena came across as a shy naive girl - a bit clueless - and star not shining as bright - oppose to the CONFIDENT, STRONG, SAVVY, AHEAD OF HER TIME - WOMAN we know. It was hard for me to see her in a different light even as a teenager. After reading some articles I became aware that Netflix said yes to the show because they would ALSO focus on Selena's family, the back stories, the rise of Los Dinos, the struggles of the Quintanilla Family which explains why it isn't 100% Selena Selena Selena - And it also explains why Netflix said yes, because how could you compare to a classic like "Selena" The Movie and why would we want to see the same story, right?
And maybe that's why I really ended up loving the series. They told us stories we've read or heard about (and some that we know), They re-enacted classic Selena moments as a kid, to the Johnny Canales Shows, to a behind the scenes of what might have happened at the TMA's - and gave us soo much more... Stories, moments, memories and different perspectives frozen in time. Except Selena's, because she's not here to tell them. So no matter how many movies, shows and documentaries they make, they will never find "Selena" because there was only one SELENA - but we'll still watch because 25 years later she's still much missed, needed and loved.
What alot of people tend to forget is that Selena wasn't a solo artist;
She had her family, her band and her husband.
Selena's story is also their story.
After watching the the series for a second time, I love it and enjoy it even more...
I just might start watching it for the third time!
