I love this show! The actors are enjoyable, the acting is well done, and some of the situations remind me of growing up in East Los Angeles.
There have been shows that try to get across ELA living, most do not come close (esp. the one on currently which is badly acted on KCET). What "Resurrection Blvd." has to offer is what I saw growing up in Boyle Heights, and the ELA experience in a nutshell. This is a familia in my hometown, and I honestly feel like they could have grown up next to me.
The endearing characters is the Santiago family itself; they are close, but far apart in the generation between father and son. Boxing is the main issue, but in reality, it's all about family. In reality, that's my life as a kid and adult - family. One sacrifices for the family, and it's normal. One of my favorite characters is Miguel - he could be doing almost anything, but his character is almost the glue. He is the middle of the generations and holds them together, doing whatever he has to for the sake of family.
This a a program that was worth my time watching every episode. It would be hard to accept if you did not grow up in ELA, but maybe opening up your mind, you can see a bit of social circumstances that are just like anyone else, regardless of class or ethnicity.
