At some point in the past, I pushed some mysterious button on the remote control so that when I watch HBO on the tv in my bedroom, closed captioning in Spanish appears. In the months/years since then, I have been unable to figure out how to undo this selection.

So . . . here we have the closing musical number from tonight's episode of Flight of the Conchords, with the lyrics en Espanol.

I don't have HBO, but I watched an episode at my brother's. I hope it comes out on DVD, but without Spanish subtitles. ;)

Learning Spanish could come in handy.

what a novel way to learn Spanish... As far as getting the subtitles off, good luck, you need to find a someone under 30 who understands those contraptions.

I agree - this could be a good opportunity to learn Spanish.

The Sopranos with Spanish subtitles must be interesting with all the Italian words that are peppered into that show... I wonder if those are translated or not?

It's kind of funny. You shuld find a nice French film on an aobscure channel, somewhere, and REALLY confuse yourself!

Does this happen on every channel or only on HBO?

My guess is that you've selected one of the numerous closed captioning options on your tv (something like CC3). I'm unsure how many tv channels actually provide spanish subtitles but a premium channel like HBO certainly would. You should be able to change this through your tv's menu.

For those interested, some of the more expensive (higher production quality/value) Night-time Spanish Soap Operas on Telemundo also provide english subtitles.

What? Oh please, people. Don't act like you've never checked out the night time soaps on Telemundo.

PS - Flight of the Conchords looks hilarious. I, too, hope it comes out on DVD.

That sounds like something I would do!

I'm actually thinking about taking some Spanish classes, I've always wanted to learn.
