"El día que se acabó el Mundo" (English: The Day the World Ended) is an episode from the Mexican TV drama series La Rosa de Guadalupe.

Plot

Aime's 15th birthday party gets ruined by the H1N1 swine flu (influenza porcina).

Why It's NOT About A Pandemic

  1. The infamous title.
  2. Aime is extremely annoying and spoiled. For example, she started to cry because her cake wasn't like what she wanted it to be.
  3. Bad, bland, and cheesy acting (especially on Aime).
  4. It looks like this episode is thinking that the swine flu was like a zombie apocalypse.
    • While swine flu was a worrying situation at the time it the episode was released, it wasn't that bad either. Just the security measures had to be taken normally.
  5. The City of Mexico was never abandoned by only an epidemic.
  6. The residents never fight for food like animals.
  7. The Mexican society was represented as if they were really on a zombie apocalypse.
  8. A lot of propaganda.
  9. Aime's aunt not helping when Aime's mother, her own sister, seemingly gets the flu, is somewhat cruel.
  10. Why would you make an episode based on a pandemic?!

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, this the episode although is executed terribly, can serve for younger people, especially those who have had birthdays, parties, and celebrations canceled and/or postponed, to reflect on themselves and realize that that kind of things can wait and that they should appreciate what they have.
  2. Though some neighbors and citizens don't offer their help to the protagonists, this is understandable given that people in these situations can get nervous and don't want to get the disease.
