Most recently I’ve been binge-watching on this amazing show. It really is fantastic and that trust me- that says a lot for someone who has watched a lot of TV shows.
At first, the name of the show was off-putting, I hated telling people I was watching it, but there really is a lot more to the title…
Not only is the creativity of this show is truly unique and the empowerment of females is something which I’m all for. It brings to light so many important aspects of life and the diversity of this show is really phenomenal. (Trying my very best to not give away any spoilers)!
Here are a few things I loved-
- We learn a lot about Latin America and it’s culture. The show is excellent at showing the difficulties some Latinos face with immigration and citizenship. I definitely learned a lot about Latin America and once I had finished the show it actually got me wanting to research more about it!
- Various relationships, especially mother and daughter. The show has done an amazing job of portraying a true mother and daughter relationship with all disagreements, drama, difficulties, and love showcased so elegantly. We also see co-parenting relationships and love triangles. It really does have a lot going on, you’ll never get bored of it.
- There is an element of crime throughout the show. This definitely kept me wanting to know more. Though it’s not the strongest part of the show, it still kept me engaged.
This isn’t even everything I loved about the show, there is so much more to this, but I really don’t want to spoil anything at all because you should definitely watch it. It truly is unique and very imaginative, you won’t have seen anything like it before. I’m not even put off by the title anymore, I think watching this show is what I would call a ‘flex.‘ It shows how open-minded you are as a person as you’re brought to light by so many different perspectives.
Jane the Virgin deserves all the credit it can get.
