News & Interviews for Selena: The Series: Season 1
"Selena: The Series" ends up feeling like a Cliff's Notes take on Selena y los Dinos, the band, and not the woman at the center of it.
In the end, Selena: The Series pulls enough poignancy from Selena's legend ... and the creators counteract the looming tragedy with silly, earnest, and heartfelt storytelling that gets you from one cumbia to the next.
Riddled with weak dialogue and low production value, but eventually, the connection to the ensemble does click. The show needs work in front of and behind the lens, but there's enough good there to up the anticipation for Part 2.
The series is a sometimes solemn but deeply empathetic exploration of an iconic family's history and of Tex-Mex culture. It's as much cultural anthropology as it is a drama about a tragic figure's rise to fame.
Selena's greatness is almost always evident, but The Series posits that the personal, even mundane affects of her life were just as crucial in composing her persona.
Part one of Selena: The Series attempts to capture Selena's artistry, but fails to bring full nuance in all areas of production.
The fact that [Selena: The Series] seemed more focused on padding Serrato's body than capturing Selena's joy, energy, and power speaks volumes from the male team behind the series.
I will admit, this is not necessarily "Selena" but rather "The Quintanillas" which is a beautiful story and is definitely part of who she is, but it feels separate from what viewers might be expecting.
Netflix's Selena: The Series delivers audiences a two-dimensional understanding of the early life of the Queen of Tejano music, the late Selena Quintanilla-Pérez.
Audience Reviews for Selena: The Series: Season 1
Dec 16, 2020Selena inspired me in my last year of High School, and I would go on to be a big fan. This series though does get cheesy at times and at many times Selena does not look like Selena, unless if she looked the way the show did her at times in real life. The series however gets fun with the music and gets real at least enough with her life and musical career etc. and I can't wait for Part 2.
Dec 15, 2020I love Selena but the inaccuracy with regards to hair, costuming and music is exasperating. Why?? I kept waiting for more in depth relationships and what was up with her hair!! Selena's style was everything and she wore her hair short through the whole series.
Dec 15, 2020Rosita from the walking dead did a very poor performance. She's like 30 years old trying to play a 15 year old. It's coming across as phony. To make matters worse, the wigs look horrible on both Selena and the mom Please end this mess. Selena was a beautiful curvy Latina and no way does Rosita represent her!
Dec 14, 2020Is this show really about Selena? Or Abe?
Dec 12, 2020I wanted to like this: this is about a family that built itself from nothing and became stars, and Selena a superstar. That is a great story. And I like that it's about more than just Selena, although perhaps it is too much about her dad, without being bold enough to really explore his character flaws (they are just hinted at). In all, the show glosses over the ups and downs f the family's journey so there is no real emotion; it's all flat with cliche dialogue. No one ever gets too upset or mad, which is unrealistic and robs the story of heart and drama.
Dec 12, 2020I who be Brazilian, i really like much about the series, the stories of Selena tell in the TV show it's much deep and emotionally, i recommend the show, don't see the score and critic say it, the show definitely what the are be is a Latin, it's the family together same the all the problems and different, the TV show make us forget about the Selena in the show will die, the show it's calm the way its quiet, the show make us though than important about the her family and they'd a person history because Selena was be Selena because the help of the her family.
Dec 12, 2020Love how the series dives into her family and how they help make Selena who she was.
Dec 11, 2020Sad to say that this was not the Selena series I was expecting. Selena as a girl worthy of only one episode? Are you kidding me? Who wrote this and why? The only take away was some of the acting and always make sure you check your trailer. I hope the second season is written by people who know what they're doing! Long live Selena!
Dec 11, 2020The actress just wasn't doing it for me. I don't know why!! I really wanted to like her but just couldn't. The acting was just off for me.
Dec 10, 2020TERRIBLE! The wigs, performances and makeup did SELENA no justice!
