There are a millions of shows on Netflix, and if you are in the same situation as me you will probably spend ages going through them trying to choose what to watch. Despite having million shows on my list, I still feel obliged to add even more to the ever growing list.
Last month, whilst going through Netflix, I noticed a new show that was added. It was a Netflix original and after watching the trailer (which was hilarious and looked fun) I decided to give it a go. Literally after the first episode I was hooked. It was fun to watch, the characters were hilarious, and the situations were real. Called ‘One Day At A Time’, and a remake of the 1976 series of the same name, it revolves around a Cuban-American family.
The family includes the grandmother, ‘Lydia’, is a widowed, emotional but strong woman who is very much in touch with her roots. The mother,’Penelope’, is a confident, ex-army, lovable and strong woman, and is probably one of the most relatable characters on the show. Her way of dealing with PTSD, highlights the mental trauma that ex-army people go through and how hard it is for them ease into daily lives. This is also highlighted through the character of the father. The children, Elena and Alex, are also very fun to watch and highlight issues that ignored within immigrated communities. The clash of cultures and the way it is dealt by each member of the family, is fun and interesting to watch.
Overall I highly recommend this show, it’s light hearted nature will definitely tug at your heartstrings and you will be left wanting for more. The best part is has been renewed for season 2!!!! So go watch it and become a fan.
