By turns whimsical and serious, this telenovela/dramedy is definitely the best new show of the Fall 2014 season. That it's a cast of unknowns makes it even better, as no one's starpower overwhelms the storyline. I can't wait to see how it develops.

Cleverly taking the best parts of telenovelas and more traditional dramas, Jane the virgin has created a hybrid show that stands out from the crowd. The acting is solid and no-one pulls focus (although Gina Rodriguez as the eponymous Jane does shine a little brighter than the rest), creating a brilliant ensemble effect. I cannot recommend this show highly enough.

This show has a little bit of everything - murder mystery, telenovela drama, love triangles, mob ties. It's so cute and well done, and has many twists and turns, but not in an exhausting way. I love this show so much.

JANE THE VIRGIN - CURRENT

The series finds just the right balance, creating a unique place for itself among the current network fare. With its down-to-earth lead character and self-aware, but not self-parodying approach, Jane The Virgin is a breath of fresh air that will hopefully find a strong and loyal fan base.

I tuned into this show expecting to hate it... the premise is ridiculous and my expectation was that it would be yet another poorly executed comedy. Not to mention the religious overtones, I expected to have Christianity or Catholicism crammed down my throat (I'm Christian, but not of the "Bible thumping, you're going to hell" kind of Christian, so I obviously dislike those Christians who fall into that category).

I'm so happy to say that I was very wrong. The show does comedy REALLY well, I actually laugh and smile throughout the episodes. The last show to have that effect on me was Pushing Daisies 2007-2009.

The religious overtones are either subtle or hilariously overdone intentionally. The show also seems to mock/follow the standard telenovella except the acting is superb. The characters are well developed. this is just a great show that leaves you with a smile, even when you think about it the next day! I hope the writers and actors keep it up for years to come!
UPDATE: Just finished the season, and what a great show, my opinion hasn't changed... it is well worth the watch. Certain parts of every episode are guaranteed to give you the warm fuzzies :)

I never thought I'd like a show that's so much like a Spanish telenovela but even though it's cheesy as hell this show had me at the first episode. The narrators witty comments and the overly dramatic plot twists only add to that. I also like that the characters have very likeable personalities and that they're often talking Spanish.

When you read the plot of this serie on sidereel, you wonder how they can make a show about that, but once you start watching the show, it's actually quite good!

Incorporating a telenovela into a dramedy wasn't a bad idea. I like this show, and I'm glad it got renewed.
