    airfalls said: OMG KAREN THAT GIFSET YOU JSUT RBELOGGED SHOULD I WATCH THIS SHOW??????

    bananaleaves:

    YES — EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH THIS SHOW. A breakdown of why (without any major spoilers):

    a) It knows genre. It’s not a soap, really, but it is very soap-like. The pilot has a lot of zany soap moments, mostly because it needs to set up the incredible premise (pregnant without losing her virginity!) and good, complete deployment of suspension of disbelief is necessary. But once you do, everything is amazing.

    b) The characters are ACES. Jane herself is a total sweetheart. Dorky and cute in a real way. Described as loving god, and also grilled cheese! There’s a narrator who does soap-style narration over things. Jane’s family is really adorable - she lives with her mother and grandmother - and her boyfriend is sweet. Boring, but sweet.

    c) This show does relationships in a real, real, real great way. Not just in terms of setting up the ship (which it definitely does real well), but also in terms of family. Jane and her family have a real rhythm to them and their patter, and they feel kind of real? As real as anyone can get on a scripted show with this as a premise, anyway. And the relationship between Rafael and his sister also seems really cute and settled and comfortable. It’s just a really comfortable show, and the relationships are done in a way that feels natural.

    d) Representation! This show is about a Latina family, and has at least one queer poc (Rafael’s sister) and doesn’t make that a fixture of the storytelling, but never forgets that? The grandmother doesn’t speak any real English in the pilot, like at all. And there’s lots of cultural references that aren’t there just to comment on the culture, but because it’s a byproduct of the way that those characters live their lives.

    e) The romcom shit seems to be set up pretty well. Which. It was one episode. But like, listen, my body, my mind, my soul is ready.

    f) It’s funny as all get out. And like, I mean legitimate laughing out loud funny. There’s a scene in the hospital when I nearly cried I was laughing so hard. She tries to run away from an awkward situation at work (when she’s made to dress as a mermaid) by turning over to flop in the water and awkwardly swimming away, fake fish tail slapping away the entire time. I’m just saying.

    There’s only been one episode so far, so take a look at the pilot and see what you think. (If you like it, come yell at me about it in my ask esp. re: Raf/Jane because RAF AND JANE, JANE AND RAF, ADJFA;DJKF;AJ.)

    Damn that was an excellent pilot. Jane the Virgin has made it on the roster. I’m not sure when I will sleep or work or anything but yeah this was too good. Also all the POC and just SO many women!!!!

    It’s just super fun with these lovely little poignant moments. Also OMFG the soap opera/telenovela tropes are countless and that makes me so happy!

    cw-shows:

What does Hollywood typically get wrong about Latino portrayals? That we all walk around with a sombrero on our head, a jalapeño in our hand and a taco in the other one. That’s never been reality. We all are proud of where we come from, no matter what religion or culture we’re in. We all love our family; we all love our tradition. That pride does not go anywhere. But do we wear a flag on our shoulder? No. Are we always speaking Spanish and pregnant? No. That is so very far few and between, and that goes across the board. There is nobody exempt of going through hardships or going through success. What we get incorrect in this industry is that the Latino story is different than any other story. Or the black story is any different than any other story. We don’t want to only be limited to our world, or our skin color. We want to transcend. We want to be invited to the same party as everybody else. (x)

    Jane The Virgin Is The Best

    jennylikestv:

    I’ve been so bogged down by all the bad TV airing this fall that I wasn’t even motivated enough to blog about a lot of it. I heard some good buzz about Jane the Virgin and decided to check it out and HALLELUJAH a good show was born.

    Jane the Virgin is an adaptation of a Venezuelan…

    Anyone wanting a show with less stress,

    Please try Jane the Virgin! It’s a dramedy/telenovela, so it does have some intensity, but it’s generally sweet an lighthearted!
    A good pallet cleanser from HtGAwM and Scandal, and a fucking brilliant show on its own!
