Trivia

After the show was cancelled in Nov. 2020, series producer Sony Pictures TV tried hard to find a new home for the reimagined sitcom. The effort -- considered a long shot -- was not successful, and the cast and crew were informed on Dec. 8 that the show has come to an end. One Day at a Time co-creators/exec producers/showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce shared the news with the show's fans on Twitter. See more »

Goofs

In episode 4, Lydia relates the story of meeting her husband in Cuba as a young woman. However, this was contradicted in episode 9 when she states that she left Cuba as a minor during Operation Pedro Pan. See more »

Very good for a sitcom, but too preachy
21 September 2017 | by grandmasterpraSee all my reviews

Honestly, this show was better than I expected it to be. The characters are funny and the writing is really well done. You have to judge it on a "sitcom" scale and in that spectrum this show is very high quality. It can get cliché sometimes but that is to be expected.

Now for my only complaint...It's too preachy!!! I'm all for political statements here and there but this show is chalked full of them. Even if I agree with most of the political statements covered, it still comes across as very elitist with constant lecturing. To the point where one of the white male characters is on the show only so the entire cast can preach to him and put him in his place all the time. Are there men like this? Of course, a lot actually. But for some white men this show can be pretty insulting.

If you are the kind of person who can handle politics ingrained in your entertainment, then go for it! It's a really good show worth watching. If you are the kind of person who is looking for an escape from the constant politics engulfing our country right now and just want some laughs, I don't recommend this show. But that shouldn't take completely away from the quality of the show which is very good.
