Jane The Virgin

7.92015X-RayTV-14
All the years of watching telenovelas with the two women who raised her - her sexy, young-at-heart mother, Xiomara ("Xo"), and her still - devout grandmother, Alba - have given Jane a slightly unrealistic view of romance. Although she is determined not to make the same mistake Xo made - becoming an unwed mother at 16 Jane could not be closer to the two wonderful women who have shaped her life.

Unexpected Gem
Verified purchase
I went into this show with some misgivings, seriously with a title of Jane The Virgin how could I do otherwise? Honestly I cannot even remember the reason I even watched the first episode as it was seriously not in my radar. I tend to go towards dark mystery shows, Broadchurch, The Killing or the likes of BBC's Sherlock, Downtown Abbey. Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels and the Walking Dead. Jane was NOT in my genre, at all.

Perhaps it was all of the above intrigue, darkness and death that made Jane rush in and had me laughing out loud at her ridiculous plight. Yes it is over the top, campy fun. Jane and her family however are so endearing and likeable you root for them in every scene. The over the top, hilarious narrative just gently nudges you and tells you its okay, you are in on the joke, everything you are about to see is cheese, fluff and silly but it is delivered with such heart and enthusiasm you just end up laughing at yourself for liking it so much.

Standouts in this show:

Jane-Gina Rodriguez, yes she is as good as they are saying. I'm too old to be her best friend, but I would love her as the daughter I never had (all boys here)

Rogelio-Jaime Camil Jane's eternally narcissistic Telenova superstar dad, who has a heart of gold despite his very obvious shortcomings.

Xiomara and Alba actresses who play Jane's mother and Grandmother respectively, do an excellent job rounding out Jane's loving home.

The whole ensemble is very well cast. The show pokes fun at some Catholic conventions, but never ventures into the territory of mocking religion. It also never mocks Jane's decision to remain a virgin into her twenties, which was surprising as well as refreshing. I will keep tuning in and keep laughing at the exploits of this heart felt show with just enough camp and silliness to not take itself too seriously.

The only ding I would give this show is the unnecessary sex scenes, especially between the two women, they seem forced, prolonged and full of "hey everyone, we are all inclusive, see?" We could have gotten their relationship without resorting to expanding on the sex, can't lesbians have a relationship on camera without having the script devolve into a sex only relationship?

Jr. year abroad, I improved my Spanish by watching telly with the family that I was living with--1st Sesame Street (Plaza Sesamo) with the kids and then the telenovelas with the whole family. Telenovelas are an acquired taste; they are like soap operas on steroids. Jane the Virgin captures the telenovela feel, but with a clever little wink at the audience. This is honestly one of the best TV shows written in recent years! I don't have access to it on my cable pkg (Charter, you stink!) but was thrilled to see that it was available on Amazon (Amazon, you rock!). Jane the Virgin had me laughing, engaged, and thoroughly entertained! The plot is well-written and over the top a la telenovela style, the premise is insane but cute, and the actors are great (Jane Seymour and Cheech Marin make appearances as a romance writer and a priest). And finally, the pièce de résistance (he was nominated for an emmy; he is that good!), is the Latin lover narrator. Clever, funny, he's a great addition to the show.

The show takes place in Miami and the majority of characters are Hispanic, but the show is written for an English-speaking audience (the Grandmother speaks in Spanish only--subtitled in English) but everyone talks to her in English which is yet another absurdly funny touch.

Season 2 starts nest week and I hope that Amazon carries it (PLEASE, AMAZON, PLEASE!). Enough gushing, you really don't want to pass this up! And it's free with Amazon Prime!

Love this show
Verified purchase
Love this show!! Finally something unique, funny, for both younger and older adults. Using a telenovella format, with this great narrator, is a huge bonus. I binge watched each season as it became available. Saw first show, and was hooked. Mystery, romance, and comedy, all in one. Another plus, is showing her as a young woman who loves her Grandmother, is a refreshing alternative to how many young people, on these shows, treat their elders, or family members. I don't appreciate the sitcoms showing the parents or grandparents as someone to just play off of, by either insulting them, or disrespecting them, for a laugh. Worse yet, the shows depicting sex, vampires, binge drinking and poor choices. We all don't live the Kardashian lifestyle, nor do all of us approve. A modern show, about a modern young woman protecting her virginity, in an endearing and funny way??? And don't forget the murder mystery that is also tied into all of this. There is hope, just when I thought there were no boundaries TV would not cross. Maybe being a young modern woman protecting ones virginity, and still be wild, and funny, will become "hip"? We can only hope.

Mi Show Favorito!
Verified purchase
I am so glad I found this show. My silly Devious Maids, an American Latino drama, ended so I somehow I stumbled onto Jane The Virgin and was absolutely delighted to watch each and every episode of this season. The characters are nice and refreshing. I loved that they included a narrator into the story (he says what I was thinking), and that Abuela spoke mostly Spanish (it makes me practice it because subtitles are included). Rogelio is so vain yet he is so innocent. He has no clue how to handle his newly met daughter, who's a strong young woman with a plan that doesn't quite come out the way she wanted. Xo would be me, although I don't have her body. She's young at heart and has such a strong bond with her daughter. Michael and Rafael are like a love-hate bromance thing going on. I am not on Team Michael or Team Rafael because I wish I'm treating them as if they were both my sons. Petra is a conniving artist but with a heart. Whoever dresses her up is a genius - I just love her fashion sense! The show can be cheesy on occasion but I love it nonetheless. Wishing them many more seasons.

A wry look at Anglo/Hispanic culture
Verified purchase
Despite a strong dislike for the series title, i very much enjoyed the pilot for JANE THE VIRGIN. The show is witty, well constructed & acted, and provides an interesting anglo/hispanic cultural melange that manages to be gently wry toward both cultures without condescension.

Can the deliberate soap-opera parallels save it from becoming a thinly-disguised soap opera like most (*yawn*) network dramas? Not sure, but I'm definitely interested in seeing where they go with this intricately inter-connected plot.

This Is One for the Ladies and some Guys
Verified purchase
Ok... this is an American Tele Novella for the women of the house. It has cute moments, but while my wife watches it with laughter and anticipation, I take the dog for a walk, do some chores, or read a book. It IS a very cute show with a plot that's more knotted than you can imagine. My wife bought the first 10 episodes because we couldn't access them on line from CWTV and I saw what "binge watching'" actually means. It's not MY cup of tea, but my wife and many of her friends LOVE this show and if you haven't seen this from the beginning, do NOT start it in the middle You will be completely confused. I highly recommend this to the ladies who want a show without violence, darkness, and has an upbeat and hopeful tone to it. For me, it's kind of like a Cocker Spaniel, it is very fun, cute and cuddly, but I prefer my 67lb golden doodle. ;)

This is one of the best shows to come out in a long time
Verified purchase
This is one of the best shows to come out in a long time. The "Latin Lover" narrator adds so much to the story, and the words which are typed over the screen (complete with the sounds of typing) are very funny. The premise of the show is that Jane Gloriana Villanueva, a virgin, has been accidentally inseminated with the sperm of Rafael. It was his wife who was supposed to be inseminated, but the doctor (Rafael's sister) was distracted and inseminated the wrong patient. This show is a bit like a Telenovela, full of pathos, heartwarming family devotion, and a large dose of humor. That being said, it still has sex and some violence, so it's not strictly family fare. If you haven't seen this wonderful show, you are missing one of the most original shows on TV.

Best programming in...well, ever
Verified purchase
This is the final season of Jane the Virgin and I have been sad since episode one of season 5. So, I purchased seasons 1 - 4 and binged over the course of 2-weeks. I was amazed at how not one episode felt stale and every episode was fresh and relevant - as if though I were watching it for the first time. The writing is wonderful and the actors, including guest actors, are brilliantly talented. I expect to watch ever episode again and again.
