(TV Series) Undoubtedly one of the most endearing TV series shown on Spanish TV, `Juncal’ is one which would seem best to encapsule the set foibles in a traditional sense, as well as characterizing masterfully the one-time bullfighter and his nostalgic claims to past glory. In his shoeblack – Rafael Álvarez – the `maestro’ matador Paco Rabal finds a sympathetic ear and simple adoration.
