  • Glad El Tigre came back with these great episodes!

    Well it came back this week and it was exciting to see. 1st off is the episode where this El tigre lover wants to be a hero like him. He's got a bad hero's name called El Burito (i think) but in the end, he came out to be great! It was funny that Manny and Frida were making him do their chores and he's not noticing it. Even to manny that it's actually helping him. lol. Overall It was a funny episode. But not as better than the 2nd one. La Tigresa was the best episode I've seen yet. Of course I like Frida in the show and I didn't expect her to become El Tigre for one day. Until now. It was funny at 1st that she can only help with only throwing a potato at Santana. Didn't work and she was embarrased by the whole city of Miracle City when she was being licked by a bear! lol. Also when Frida's dad made Manny sleep with the vicious dogs. all hillarous. It's kewl to finally see the fighting side of Frida! I love La Tigresa! Hope Frida gets super powers soon. Overall these episodes are great and this season would be awesome as well.moreless
  • That's what La Tigressa was: Revealing.

    There's really not much I can exactly say about this episode. Curse of the Albino Burrito: No comment. But La Tigressa, on the other hand, was probably the most revealing episode there was. Sometimes, revealing episodes make me stay away from a show for about a week or so and... this was one of those times but that episode was still good. We got to see the crime-fighting side of Frida and I never thought she'd get superpowers for one day. And as a "helpless little girl", that was also pretty revealing after seeing White Pantera, Puma Loca and El Tigre all form and Frida was just a "helpless little girl". This was the kind of episode that has on the edge of your seat. It's very revealing but you just don't want to stop watching. The end when Frida was eaten by the bear, though, was pretty comical. I give La Tigressa a 10/10.moreless
  • Really liked it. Packed with humor and adventure. And finally an episode after three months.

    Well I just saw this episode and it was really humorous and full of action. The first episode involved a kid wearing a donkey hat. The second episode involved Frida stealing Manny's belt. Although both episodes are good, it is obvious that the second one was much better, as it was good to see Frida change into a superhero for a change. Frida is one of the those characters that I don't understand why they have to be a main character. I wish sometimes that Frida could play a bigger role in the series, but well I guess that's one thing that makes El Tigre unique. I'm PS2fan2000 and this has been another El Tigre review. Thanks for reading.moreless
  • La Tigressa was so COOL!!!

    As soon as my little sister told me that a new El Tigre was going to air I thought that the episode wasn't going to be too good. Now, if the commercial had been on La Tigressa, that would be a whole different story. Anyway, I acted excited for the first episode, and it wasnt't too bad. The 'Albino Burrito' kid was adorable (in my opinion) and I loved the way he always sang out his name. The ending of that episode made me laugh my head off.

    Now for the best part of the thiry minutes: La Tigressa. I can't even think up a good word to use to describe this. The beginning made me laugh (a lot of the episodes do) and I knew immediately that Frida was going to take Manny's belt. Mostly because of logical deductioning (wow, big word there)... and the fact that I read the summary online before the episode aired. Anywho, throughout the episode, I made comments about how Frida did a much better job with the belt than Manny, and how she looked good in the costume. I also liked how when she was in Santana's Lair and didn't have the belt anymore, she just asked politely to leave, then willingly went into the cell she was in for the previous ten times during that month.

    When Manny woke up from the boring documentary, I thought it was funny that he wasn't able to figure out that Frida was La Tigressa (again). And his explanation was, "The blue hair should have gave it all away." or something like that.

    My sisters, who were watching it with me, asked me ('cuz I'm the El Tigre fan) why if Frida was able to just open the cell like that, she didn't escape earlier. My 'logical' explanation was that she liked Manny and wanted him to rescue her. Cute, right?

    Back to the rest: I kept on laughing at the fact that with all the weapons available, Frida chose the potato and it actually worked! It was so hilarious! And the ending with her in the bear's stomach was perfect. (Okay, not romantically perfect, but episode wise, it was great.)

    So yeah, I give this a ten out of ten. YAY to La Tigressa!moreless

  • NOTES (3)


    • After realizing Frida is La Tigressa, Manny comments on how easily he should have been able to recognize her. This may be alluding to how many superheros have secret identities that would easily link them to their superhero counterparts if the characters used common sense.
