I made a post about that show and Jane the Virgin but most the conversation focused on Jane, I would like to have more feeback about what you all think about Cristela
I watched it with the other mod, Johnny and neither of us liked it very much but I didn’t much issue with it I just didnt like the humor very much - F
To be fair most of concerns is what I’m afraid the show will do in the future which I guess is not fair. Here are my concerns:
1. I’m afraid this show will be used as American Bootstrap Theory porn because see minorities can make it in the US if they work hard and assimilate!
2. The racist boss will be portrayed as playful and we should just learn to take a joke!
3. Another WOC falling for the cute white boy because white boys are so supportive and feminist and body positive! (Which is the biggest joke of all tbh.) Why are the two Latino men an asshole (which honestly I’m just really bitter about because Carlos Ponce FINALLY has a steady acting gig and his character is UUUUUUUUUGH) and a loser?
Idk I just feel like the show is playing off of what Americans think latinx families are like. And then I think the little girl wanting to play soccer was supposed to be feminist commentary but it just fell flat, like was the mom’s concern that girls aren’t supposed to play sports, or was she just worried she would get hurt, or is it a money issue?
