@Bud - Post #138|
My guess would be that there was no Christmas episode of Lalola due
to its format. It was created by Dori Media to sell in multiple
countries. Sometimes Lalola started in Spring, sometimes in fall.
Most of the Lalola's followed the episode by episode guide laid out
by Dori Media. I would guess that Dori Media couldn't have
predicted/timed various holidays.

With all of the shows being revived lately, I think it's time for
Lalola to be revived.|

what revive? I don't think the entertainment industry in other
countries is as bankrupt of ideas as the entertainment industry in
US. You Yankees only interested in remake, revival, sequel,
prequel, reboot etc. we have better thing to do than to keep
revisiting old ideas.|

I'm not one to defend the bankrupt entertainment industry, but I
think the problem is the choice of what is remade, and the lack of
good ideas which go into them. Some things remade make me wonder
why anyone ever made the original. But some good ideas are remade
-- badly. Like, one of the best light action-horror series of the
past was Kolchak, Night Stalker. But the remake threw away
everything that made the original good. The most painful lack was
the dearth of whimsy in the title character the "new Kolchak." I
guess it only lasted a few weeks. No loss.
But Lalola definitely does need a remake, more than one, aimed at
the language groups that were not represented in the original dozen
or so versions. Not one English country made a version. (A pilot
was made by a major broadcaster [FOX, but the advertisers at the
airing weren't sold. It should have been aimed after that to a
specialty cable network market, such as one with a romantic or a
fantasy theme.) There is still a huge untapped market for a Lalola
version done right. It's surprising the success the theme had with
many different culture groups; there is a universality in its
Last night I rewatched my DVD of SAM, the Neil Brooks movie. I
still don't get the lack of respect for that film. It's a charmer.
If someone would remake it into a series, it would come out a lot
like Lalola, and I'd be all for it.

Which actress would make a good Lola and get people to watch an
American version of it?|

Someone who would be good at lalola series would be Rachel McAdams|

Latin soaps when adapted by the Yankees tended to prefer having
Latino protagonist. See Jane the Virgin & Ugly Betty.|

Are you sure it's episode 11? I tried to go to Lalola channel with
English subtitle in Youtube (which unfortunately only available
until episode 28) to see the scene and figure out what the words
she was saying but I couldn't find the scene you mentioned.

Bud asks which actress would make a good Lalola for an American
version. I've been impressed with the verve and charm of Kristen
Bell, currently starring in The Good Place. She's as cute as can be
and also can play a character with an edge to her.|

They did a pilot already. Not using the actress I would have
preferred. If you could have done it when she was younger, I would
have used Lauren Graham|

It was the woman that plays Kim on Better Call Saul. I think she
probably dodged a bullet on the American Lalola not be being picked
up. Better Call Saul is a great show.|

@(JKR) #128---Hmmm. I can't seem to find that scene you are asking
about. It was very brief. Lalola/Lola was on the couch by himself,
bored with the TV selections and flipping channels. They show a
shot briefly of some dresses which looked like a a fashion show. He
says "linda" I believe if memory serves and then slaps his forehead
for saying this. I'll let you know if I run across it again.|
It was one of the small nuances in the original version that didn't
carry over into most other versions.
I translated some story comments in some of the Russian forums
about Margosha. One comment said, "You can tell the script was
written by man."

Who do you guys think was the best choice for the part of Lola from
any version? (For performance/looks/any other reason)|
I'm torn between Mariya Berseneva from Margosha and Rhian Ramos
from the philippines version.

OK thanks. What you described seems like a scene in ep 10 before
the watching football scene that you mentioned earlier. I don't see
any dress but she was flipping between channels because (according
to subtitle in the Lalola English channel) she has an assignment to
write about women so she watched the women's show to gain more
insight and alternating between fitness show and shows about doing
some crafts and she commented "women are idioits" and then trying
to do some craft herself before angrily sweeping it away along with
all her things on the table.

No it wasn't that segment in episode 10. It was something else. It
was very brief, but it included channel surfing and saying the word
"linda" which means pretty after seeing some models walking on a

Talking about American remake, one thing that SHOULD be changed is
Grace. In the US it is unthinkable for men & women to have that
kind of platonic relationship like Grace & Lalo, even
habitually sharing a bed without sexual relationship. I know it is
not that far-fetched for many other cultures, but for US this is
just not possible. So the American version should either have Grace
be a lesbian (kinda like the reverse of "Will and Grace", funny how
both characters are named Grace) or a gay man (like the Filipino
version of Lalola).|
