New version, still love it!
8 January 2017 | by odalyvictorioSee all my reviews

I'm surprised to see negative reviews. I'm only two episodes in, but thus far I love it! I would have given it a full on 10, but the actors portraying Cubans aren't Cuban.

In keeping with the original, the strong female lead is a divorcée and Vet. I love her interactions with her mom and daughter. It's very accurate in Cuban families. Her struggles at work are common among us Latins. In general, we want to impress and don't do too well at 'asking' or (demanding) more money.

I realize if you aren't Latin, this may not be your cup of tea, but I have enjoyed many shows based on other cultures.

I hope I enjoy the rest of the episodes as much.
