Caso Cerrado’s ‘Pokemon Go’ Episode Was Full Of Delicious Chisme

It looks like Pokémon GO has finally completed the Latino TV cycle. It all began with “Primer Impacto” telling your parents to be very afraid of the game. Now it’s become the center of an episode of “Caso Cerrado” with Dra. Ana Maria Polo. It’s a tale of violence, betrayal and addiction.

Dra. Polo kicks things off with a quote that she attributes to Albert Einstein — except it’s not actually from Einstein.

Translation: “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” Great quote, but it’s not from Einstein. It actually might be from the movie “Powder.”

After that great start, we meet the plaintiff, Julio.

He’s suing two young women for $20,000 (!) after a Pokémon GO-related incident that took place in his front yard.

Julio tells Dra. Polo he’s in the middle of a custody battle for his daughter and the incident could ruin his chances in divorce court.

The defendants, Victoria and Angelica, were playing Pokémon GO in Julio’s front yard. At 3 a.m. In the dark. Hours later, they would end up in an ambulance.

So here’s what went down: Julio said he heard his daughter crying late at night. After hearing strange sounds outside of his house, he went out to investigate. After seeing a silhouette outside (spoiler alert: it was Victoria and Angelica), Julio picked up a brick and threw it in the direction of the silhouette. Julio claims he threw it “to the side” to scare whoever was in his yard. “Mejor un ladrillo que una pistola,” says Julio. Either Julio has terrible aim or he’s a liar, because the brick apparently hit Angelica in the back. And during all the commotion, Victoria hurt her ankle.

When Dra. Polo asks what they were doing in his yard, Julio explains that people keep showing up to his house because it’s a Poke Stop. Dra. Polo has NO IDEA what he’s talking about.

So, dude ends up giving Dra. Polo a pretty thorough breakdown about the game and how it works (remember this for later).

After Dra. Polo plays a clip that explains the game to viewers (a.k.a. your parents), Julio continues recounting the incident.

Julio, who claims he threw the brick to scare off a potential intruder, says he heard several cries of pain. He turned on the light to his porch and realized the two girls were on the ground. The girls eventually called an ambulance AND the police. Julio says cops at his house isn’t a good look — especially when he’s a custody battle.

Sidenote: Shoutout to the guy in the back who was probably hyped to be on TV for a whole episode only to have zero lights pointed in his direction.

Julio then presents video footage of people playing Pokémon GO in front of his house.

The girls explain they were playing for hours and didn’t realize they were trespassing. They then reveal they’re countersuing for $10,000 (!).

Angelica shows off a large bruise on her back caused by the thrown brick…

And Victoria, who is wearing a heavy boot over her right leg, says she owes $3,000 in medical bills after hurting her ankle in the incident.

She adds that she’s missed work for about a month. I guess if you add that to the $500 they owe for the ambulance that picked them up, it all somehow adds up to $10,000.

Angelica claims they shouldn’t be punished for the fact that this guy’s house is a Poke Stop. Dra. Polo still doesn’t grasp the concept of a Poke Stop:

So, which side are you on? Wait! PLOT TWIST: Angelica’s brother is there to testify. AGAINST Veronica and Angelica. Meet Gary:

Gary says everything was good with the girls — they were getting out of the house more often — until they became addicted to the game and started missing school. The girls fire back: “We only missed ONE day.” Gary says he’s concerned that “next time,” they’ll be injured by something worse than a brick. You know, like a Geodude or a even a Graveler.

Things are looking grim for Veronica and Angelica. But wait! DOUBLE PLOT TWIST: The girls have brought in Julio’s estranged wife as a witness, and she’s got the REAL CHISME.

The woman, named Yesenia, says her husband is a liar and hypocrite because he was the “first one to download the game when it came out.” That explains why he knew so much about the game! She says they’re getting divorced after she used Pokémon GO to confirm he was cheating on her. One night, when he arrived late, she went into his cell phone while he was showering and used the game’s log to pinpoint where (and at what time) he was catching Pokémon. Her sleuthing led her to realize most of Julio’s hunts took place at a female coworkers house. BUSTED.

After reviewing all the evidence, Dra. Polo comes to her decision. But you’ll have to tune in to a re-run of the episode to find out what happens next!

Just kidding! After three experts — an attorney, a police officer and a sociologist — weigh in on the case, Dra. Polo decides to throw out both cases, telling everyone, “I hope you all have fun with your game!”

J Balvin Debuts ‘Ma’ G’ with Canelo, Joins ‘Pokémon’ Album


J Balvin Debuts ‘Ma’ G’ with Canelo, Joins ‘Pokémon’ Album

J Balvin had a pretty busy weekend. The Colombian superstar performed his new single “Ma’ G” at the Canelo vs. Yildirim boxing match. He also announced that he will be a part of the Pokémon 25 album.

J Balvin entered the ring with Canelo.

J Balvin performed at the big boxing match and joined Canelo Álvarez in his walk to the ring. At the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Balvin gave a fiery performance of “Ma’ G” that led into his 2018 global hit “Mi Gente.” The latter served as the soundtrack to Canelo’s epic entrance. That must’ve added to Canelo’s luck because he defeated Avni Yildirim.

J Balvin went back to his hometown for the “Ma’ G” music video.

“Ma’ G” was written by J Balvin, his longtime producer Alejandro “Sky Rompiendo” Ramírez, and “Tusa” co-writer Keityn. After tackling drill music with Eladio Carrión in “TATA,” Balvin gives the genre another spin here as he boasts about being the best. In Spanish, he says that he’s strong like Mike Tyson and he’s breaking through like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Balvin’s getting his swagger back with this triumphant return to his hip-hop roots.

The self-proclaimed “El niño de Medellín” returned to the city that raised him in the “Ma’ G” music video. The homecoming king got the streets dancing for him. Balvin is back with this first taste of new music from his next album.

Balvin is also joining the Pokémon franchise.

After Post Malone celebrated 25 years of Pokémon in a virtual concert on Feb. 27, J Balvin revealed that he will be part of a special compilation album. Katy Perry will join him, Posty, and other not-yet-announced artists for the Poké LP that’s due out this fall.

All Of Your Favorites Telenovelas Are Coming Back With NBC Universo’s ‘Retro Jueves’


All Of Your Favorites Telenovelas Are Coming Back With NBC Universo’s ‘Retro Jueves’

So many us are already glued to our screen right now, binge watching far too much television, if you ask me. But – and it’s a very valid but – a throwback series consisting of our favorite and iconic Latino television shows would be a very valid excuse to continue racking up that screen time.

And guess what? NBC’s Universo is delivering exactly that with the launch of their new prime time lineup called ‘Retro Jueves.’ Consider it a chance to rewatch some of your favorite TV shows and realize just how fast time passes.

‘Retro Jueves’ will be full of iconic Latino TV shows – bringing us some much-needed content during this quarantine.

With the slogan “Remembering is Living” – so true! – Universo is launching “Retro Thursdays”, a new programming block that will be broadcast every Thursday in prime time from April 30 (that’s tonight!) at 7 p.m. ET.

The new programming block will bring back some of the most iconic U.S. Spanish-language TV programs from the early 2000s and let us remember the good ol’ days as we get a chance to look back at the beginnings of some of our favorite TV celebs.

Consider this a golden opportunity to revisit some of these classic shows that so many of us grew up watching as kids. Or, if you’re in quarantine with your mamá or tías – get them in front of that TV with you for a trip down memory lane.

Some of the classics I’ll be watching include, Caso Cerrado.

Few shows are as iconic and over-the-top genius as Caso Cerrado. The super dramatic court TV program is hosted by the beloved Dr. Ana María Polo and includes some seriously scene-stealing guests.

Though the show has come under fire for allegedly creating fake court cases – I don’t care. It’s great entertainment.

Caso Cerrado will kick off the programming with some of it’s very first episodes at 7pm ET.

Then it’s on to Protagonistas de Novela 2.

Protagonistas de Novela 2 follows at 9 p.m./8 p.m. central. This 2003 reality show guaranteed the winner a spot in a future telenovela, and this particular season became crucial for current stars like William Levy and Ximena Duque. Relive the drama and excitement that divided a nation: were you team Erick Elías or Alfredo de Quesada? Maybe your opinion will change if you rewatch it, or maybe it’ll remain unchanged.

Then things get hot at steamy with episodes from the super intense show, Decisiones.

At 10 p.m./9 p.m. central, we’ll dive into the true stories of people thrust into amorous adventures and pushed to their breaking points. Decisiones brings steamy melodramas about passion and sex in the modern world of 2005, featuring unique standalone stories in each episode.

Then it’s way back to Dr. Ana María Polo’s OG days with her original court program – Sala de Parejas.

This was the very court program that quickly had Dr. Ana María Polo stealing the hearts of viewers. The show centers on marital problems – which made for some seriously great TV. The success of Sala de Parejas enabled Dr. Ana María Polo to take the idea further and launch Caso Cerrado, where she was able to show other disputes not related to relationships.

With such a promising lineup of classic, iconic TV shows – I now have my Thursday night plans and I’m beyond excited.
