This Colombian series has tons of crazy moments as the un-extraordinary Juanquini and his family try to cope with the extraordinary situation in which they find themselves. The cat and mouse game between El Capi González and Nato creates endless opportunities for chaos. Meanwhile, Juanquini, who knows his life will never be the same, is also discovering more about who he is, and what his real talents are.

However, The Unremarkable Juanquini's over-the-top comedy style, which is popular in Latin and South America, doesn't always translate well to English speaking audiences. Chances are that stateside viewers who are unfamiliar with this type of humor will find it clumsy and poorly paced, making it difficult to zone in on the nuances that ultimately point to, and explain, Juanquini's strange transformation. But those familiar with comedian Antonio Sanint's work will get it, and enjoy it; while a few new fans may be willing to go along for the ride.
