One of my favorite TV shows has aired its final episode….. (sad face)
This was one of those shows that had so much going on that it was sometimes hard to keep up with, but so much fun to watch. When I had initially heard about it, I was a little bit like, “What tha???”, but I decided to just dive in. Take a gander at the premise, if you will?
The Premise: Set in Miami, the series details the surprising and dramatic events that take place in the life of Jane Gloriana Villanueva, a hard-working, religious, young, Venezuelan-American woman. Jane’s vow to save her virginity until marriage becomes complicated when a doctor mistakenly artificially inseminates her during a checkup. To make matters worse, the biological father is a married man, a former playboy, and a cancer survivor who is not only the new owner of the hotel where Jane works, but was also her former teenage crush. In addition to adjusting to pregnancy and then motherhood, in the initial episodes Jane is faced with questions about her professional future and the daunting prospect of choosing between the father of her baby or her detective boyfriend. As the series evolves, the issues shift as her child grows into a toddler, her writing career moves forward, and her family members likewise develop independent plot lines.
You see? That all sounds crazy, right? But I guess they are just staying true to the Telenovela roots. SO……MUCH……DRAMA! I love it! So much so, that I binged the first 3 seasons on Netflix, and had a straight up attitude because it was still on the air, and I had to watch the last 2 seasons….**gasping** dare I say….weekly! THE HORROR!!!! Netflix, you spoil me so. When I say binged, I binged hard. Seasons 1 & 2 had 22 episodes, and Season 3 had 20, and at about 45 minutes a pop. Well worth it though.
Damon would never fully commit, but had the nerve to be asking all kinds of questions! “Get outta here with that! Either you’re in, or you’re out.”
I am sad to see it go, but I am assuming that they didn’t feel that they had many more places to take it. I bid you farewell Jane Gloriana Villanueva, Rafael, Michael, Mateo, Abuela, Xo, Rogelio, Petra, Anna & Ellie, and I can’t forget about that dear sweet Narrator. You all will be greatly missed, but fortunately, will live on on Netflix!
