Critics Consensus

If at times a bit blunt, Gentefied's gente-centric approach to the realities of gentrification is as strikingly personal as it is hilariously relatable.

Critic Reviews for Gentefied Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (11)

It's a lot to pull off in a comedy while also staying focused on the central storyline, but "Gentefied" passes with flying colors.

Feb 21, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

While direct references to the current political climate and scenes of protest against "colonizers" can feel clichéd, quieter reflections resonate because of their emphasis on the connections between characters.

Feb 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Gentefied is hellafied fun, smart, and has a lot of damn heart.

Mar 5, 2020 | Full Review…

At its core, Gentefied is a bold, beautiful show about people trying to play a game in which they don't make the rules.

Feb 25, 2020 | Full Review…

The beautiful message of Brown love, convictions, and understanding all combine in this touching TV series.

Jun 5, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Funny, family-centric drama examines race, class issues.

Mar 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

"Gentefied" finds a lot of humor and poignancy in these conflicted characters. While it deals with sometimes serious and thorny issues, it does so with confidence and lightness, making for an engaging show.

Mar 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Gentefied is an in-depth, entertaining, engaging almost-dramedy series worthy of network-level attention and acclaim.

Mar 9, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's a delightful watch with plenty of characters to root for.

Mar 4, 2020 | Full Review…

The way in which the series presents the ambiguities of how people deal with the unstoppable changes that threaten their way of life is original and generates curiosity. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Gentefied is at its best when it gets specific.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

The first season leaves us yearning for more depth and specificity from the characters, but it is also a huge success. It is warm, funny, relevant and expansive.

Audience Reviews for Gentefied: Season 1

  • Nov 18, 2020
    I thought I'd give it 1 star after I saw the first 5 minutes of the first episode. I hung in there to watch it all and BAM!! The show grabbed me! I ended up binge watching the whole season 1. Can't wait for season #2.
  • Oct 26, 2020
    This show seems like it was supposed to be progressive but is actually patronizing and full of ethnic stereotypes. It's also dull.
  • Oct 19, 2020
    The humor is weak and this series is full of cultural cliches.
  • Oct 05, 2020
    This series is full of stereotypes of Hispanic people that are about as fresh as a day-old burrito. It's great to have more representation of Hispanics, but the focus of the series doesn't need to be ethnicity. The characters should feel like real individuals living real lives who happen to be Hispanic, not a parade of ethnic cliches.
  • Oct 03, 2020
    This show was truly beautiful. I felt for a lot of the characters' struggles, especially with Chris, who feels disconnected from his Latinx culture, and Ana, who's trying to make her art shine in this world as a woman of color and a proud lesbian. I can relate to them both so hard. "Even the toaster doesn't think I'm Mexican," is my favorite quote haha. The episode where Ana's mural was painted over really hit home for me big time too, and I still get worked up just thinking about it. Also Erik and Lidia are such a cute couple; every time they were on screen I could feel the love for each other exude off of them. Love can be hard sometimes, and they really prove that even if it is, it's still worth every heart break in the end.

    This series should have as many award nominations as the feels it makes you feel.
  • Jun 17, 2020
    This is a beautiful show, funny and touching and thoughtful. The acting is excellent, the writing is fantastic, and characters' world is compelling and vividly-drawn. The end of season one was a little bit heartbreaking, and I can hardly wait for season two!

    Me encantó, es entrañable y tiene actores de orimera
  • Apr 30, 2020
    It was terrible. Poorly written, basic, and Mexican stereotypes extremely annoying.
  • Apr 22, 2020
    This show is bad and hard to watch. I almost feel that, as an individual of The Hispanic culture, I'm supposed to praise the show, but bad is bad and that's my honest opinion. The scene flow feels very choppy. The Latin stereotypes are cringeworthy at times. Character development is lacking and forced all at the same time. Feels like the show was made by rookies. Finally, as a Tejano, I don't find myself relating the the show and its setting, which is fine in almost all cases, if the show is good.
