Anyway, one of my go-to shows on CBS was One Day at a Time. I looked forward to the bubbly feel-good theme song This Is It and a look at the daily lives of a single mom and her teen daughters.
Usually, there was a happy ending. The show ran from 1975 to 1984. I also remember it was losing creative steam when it married off Barbara (Valerie Bertinelli to a dentist).
So I was surprised to learn that Netflix was rebooting the show but with a Cuban-American family. And like the original, the theme song remains but it's been updated as well, thanks to Gloria Estefan who brings a fast Latin beat to the theme. This is a long way of saying that I wrote an article about the new show and how it's familiar and yet different.
Both actors steal their scenes especially when Grinnell is shirtless.
