Jane The Virgin

Writer – Jane is a fiction writer and I can’t say I love that aspect of the story, but yo, a writer is a writer and we gotta promote each other.  Who knows, maybe someday I’ll write a novel.  I doubt it though.  While I may not be a good writer, it is my passion.  This I know.  It’s not that I don’t dig fiction (it’s my favorite), it’s just that that part of the show is ironically a little too tortured.  Whereas The Passions of Santos, well that’s just fun.

HSF – Gina Rodriguez (Jane) is not only a badass to follow on Twitter.  She is a board member for the national Hispanic Scholarship Fund.  I have to thank HSF for several $k of scholarship money of which I did not buy furniture and carpet.  But seriously, I’m super proud to be a member of the Albuquerque Advisory Council of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, the largest Hispanic scholarship granting institution in the country.  Also, Gina has won a Golden Globe for her performance as Jane.  Boom.


Naughty kid –Mateo Gloriano Rogelio Solano Villanueva.  Jane and Rafael’s kid.  So yeah, actual plot.  Jane has a kid despite that fact that she is was a virgin.  More important than being accidentally, artificially inseminated is that Jane has a kid.  And through the magic of television fast forwarding, we come to find out that #Matelio is a naughty four year old.  Thank you, Jesus.  As you may have heard or deduced, Atticus Cole Armenta is naughty.  But yeah, tell me again “he’s just a boy” or “he’s smart.”  And just like Jane, I love my little dude.


Guest stars – What show features Britney Spears, Gloria Estefan, Paulina Rubio and Bruno Mars?  Sometimes Here We Are Y Yo Sigo Aqui Just the Way You Are. Need I say more.  Slay with the divas.

Spanish, the narrator and the use of subtitles – This show uses all three perfectly, although, sometimes it seems like Jane is trying really hard to pronounce certain words en espanol.  Like abuela and Mateo.  auwela  maaaathayo


Rafael and Michael and Petra – So officially I’m #Team/Dream Rafael, but just barely, especially with Zen Rafael, too chill.  Michael and his dimples and curly hair and pretty eyes are adorable.  And Petra is just amazing.  But Rafael is so versatile.
