Get ready for this American telenovela.
Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez) lives with her mother and her grandmother (Andrea Navedo & Ivonne Coll) and has vowed not to have sex until marriage to her boyfriend Michael (Brett Dier). Her world is turned upside down when she’s artificially inseminated with her former crush and current boss’ (Justin Baldoni) sperm and she learns the real identity of her father (Jamie Camil).
Few words can describe this show’s comedy. The entire cast play their roles perfectly, especially Rodriguez at the forefront. You’ll feel every emotion Jane is feeling as she struggles with new aspects of her life.
And, the multicultural aspect of it is represented beautifully. The scenes between Jane’s grandma and her daughter or Jane are multilingual and show a different family aspect than television before it.
Final say: Insane and hilarious. ★★★★★
