Script features edit

When Eric Vonn took the story in his hands, he rewrote all the rest of the story from about episode 40 to the end, and made it in his unique manner providing almost all the dialogues and scenes in ironic, sarcastic manner with many allegories full of black humor. Huge amount of violent and sadistic scenes involving main characters, and the manner of setting this scenes are although comic, all this features make novels of Vonn very different from all telenovela writers, in fact he is the only one writing telenovelas in a genre of black humor.
