In honor of Hispanic Heritage month, (even though you’re Hispanic everyday) I’m shouting out some of my fave shows.
- Gentefied: Handles harsh topics such as gentrification, immigration and sexuality with levity. Extremely funny, well thought-out, varied characters, who play off one another superbly. Really covers the multi-generational, cross-cultural experience and that in my twenties, battle of passion versus security career angst. It’s really f*cking funny though.
- Mexican Dynasties: My dirty addiction is Bravo, I will pretty much watch almost anything on that channel. Andy Cohen has me hooked! We all remember what the programming was like before him. I digress. This show is like reality Telemundo, characters so over the top, opulent and outrageous. The confessionals cracked me up. I don’t know how this didn’t get renewed.
- On My Block: Just some California kids trying to survive their crime infested neighborhood. The four friends who have been so since childhood seem fated for different paths, one of them to inherit their place as the head of the local 19th Street gang. There are: drive-by’s, pull up’s, heartbreaks, murder, treasure hunt, kidnappings…Is friend’s forever possible?
