I am always on the lookout for a 30-minute sitcom that shows relevance and at the same time can make me laugh. I have found that sitcom with the Netflix Original One Day at a Time. It is a remake of the American sitcom that aired on CBS from 1975 until 1984. Bonnie Franklin was a divorced mother raising two teenage daughters played by Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli and it took place in Indianapolis.
The new show stars Justina Machado, who is a divorced former military mother raising her teenage daughter and tween son. She lives with her mother, and I presume they live in Miami because they are Cuban Americans. I have only watched two episodes but have enjoyed them both, as the episodes bring up themes of feminism, the environment, depression, and resilience in a modern and diverse society. The acting is good, and I can see how the characters can be developed through a number of seasons. I hope that there will be many seasons for this sitcom.
