Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
My favorite new comedy this season has been ABC’s Cristela. It’s just so cute and sweet and funny. Last week was more of the same. Natalia (or Ama), Cristela’s mother, decided the whole family was going to a friend’s granddaughter’s quinceanera, and she basically ordered Cristela to invite “Josh from work” as her date because her daughter dating a white man would look good to everyone. Cristela balked at first but eventually gave in after Ama showed up at her work and invited Josh herself for Cristela. While at the party, Cristela refused to dance, and through a conversation with Daniela, we learned that she thought she wasn’t good enough for someone like Josh, that a man like him wouldn’t like her. In the end, he convinced her he wanted to dance with her, so they did. It was very sweet…and I loved Cristela’s jealousy at the attention a pretty woman paid to Josh (who was actually a little oblivious. LOL).
I’m a big Cristela/Josh shipper, but I’m glad they aren’t rushing them into a relationship. Hopefully that’s where they’re planning to take the pair, but if they aren’t, that’s where my imagination comes in. Tonight is a double episode, so I’m excited to get twice the fun!
On tonight’s first episode, “Latino 101,” Trent picks Cristela to sit at his table for the trial of a landlord accused of not renting to minorities. But his reason for doing so — to show a minority on the landlord’s side — backfires on him, and Cristela must decide whether to use an advantage she did not earn through hard work. Meanwhile, as Alberto starts bonding with Natalia, Daniela becomes suspicious that perhaps he’s “using Ama to get in good with Cristela.” Then on the second new episode, “Great Expectations,” when tasked by Trent to motivate Maddie’s work ethic, Cristela has to think fast to come up with creative ways to convince Maddie to get through their shared workload. Meanwhile back at home, Daniela is on a work trip as Felix finds himself alone and taking care of the kids.
Laugh along with me tonight on ABC at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c.
