Jane the Virgin… let’s get real: this is probably my favorite new show! Yeah, you read it. I’m totally loving The Flash as well, but this one, well, it took me completely by surprise, and it’s so different from everything else around it that it just takes the prize.
It’s beyond funny and witty, it has murder, mystery and sex (and a whole lot of “not sex”), and the narrator… OMG… he’s the funniest thing ever. The cast is brilliant and the characters are well rounded and not at all boring, they all have two sides: weather it’s the playboy who had cancer and turned his life around, or the good cop that’s definitely hiding something, or the mother who got pregnant and went against all and had a marvelous baby (and raised her right), or the gay doctor sleeping with her own step-mother, or the grandmother who only speaks spanish, and Jane, obviously, marvelous Jane, who’s a virgin, but not a saint 😉 ! I just love it so much. I spend the 40 minutes laughing and crying, but it’s well worth it.
Congrats to the CW, a network that always produced a “certain” kind of shows, not only is expanding its basis, but might well have the 2 best shows of the year (and not to mention the amazing job they’re still doing on Arrow).
