Laugh and Cry

I usually don’t promote movies, shows, music etc on my blog, one because my taste in things varies so widely and two because I don’t know how to truly criticize or write about them succinctly. I could really never write an editorial piece or a real review.

This week, I started binging a show on Netflix called “One Day At A Time”. It’s a reboot of the older show from the late 70s early 90s. It has the same premise, single mother raising two children. However the show comes with the perspective from a Latino family.

The episodes have both made me laugh out loud and then sob within each 30 minute episode. There are coming of age stories for the two children, stories about immigration from the grandmother and the struggles of a single mother working and dealing with PTSD (she’s a veteran). Plus the new version of Schneider is a bit of eye candy.

It’s been a long time since a sit-com has made me both laugh and cry. Unfortunately this one was cancelled by Netflix and only has 4 seasons. However, I like the show enough that I will watch some of them over and over again.

    I will have to check that out. I love the original tv show. Just saw a episode of the original when channel surfing. Some shows hold up good over the years and still make me laugh, like Maude and All in The Family.

    Such a good show! totally recommend it.
    And who said you need to be Roger Ebert? Who cares? Just tell us what you think. It’s your blog and you can do whatever you want in it.
