If you’ve spent more than five minutes on this blog or my Twitter feed, you know I’m not shy about sharing my opinions. It’s a blessing and a curse for an entertainment critic, because while I don’t want to have an intense feeling about everything from the flower arrangements at the latest trainwreck of a housewives event, I guarantee you I could do a five-minute rant on them.
But that’s not to be said that I don’t have a ton of questions either. I’m plagued with just as many if not more. Here are just a few of the burning questions and maybe some answers on my favorite TV shows like Jane The Virgin, Grey’s Anatomy, Black Lightning and more…
We are currently in the midst of the second golden age of television, thanks to an abundance of streaming networks and the emergence of niche programming. However, Hollywood's nauseating love of reboots and remakes smacks of such unoriginality and laziness on behalf of the studios. So it's ironic that one of my favorite shows, and one of the best shows on television and streaming services is Netflix's One Day At A Time, a remake of the 1975 show.
Starring Justina Machado and the legendary Rita Moreno (a member of the prestigious EGOT club), this remake is centered on a divorced veteran mother, her extended family and pesky landlord Schneider as in modern day Los Angeles. One Day At A Time is a seamless and exceedingly watchable combination of comedy, drama and a family's amusing and relatable dysfunction.
So I was aghast when the cast and crew began expressing concern that Netflix had yet to renew it for a third season. In a world where Fuller House not only exists but is thriving, I cannot abide by this at all.
Here are 8 reasons why Netflix needs to renew One Day At A Time immediately.
