Jane The Virgin: Season 5 Reviews

Oct 27, 2021
For a show that delights in the absurd, Petra and JR's love story felt as authentic as any I've ever seen on TV.

It's a show that reminds us that resistance onscreen can just be giving space to characters who aren't normally visible, and writing them with both technical brilliance and empathy.

Below the surface, Jane the Virgin is also bracingly realistic about parenthood, work-life balance, relationships, and, yes, sex. Tender, fun, and expertly plotted, it's perfect multi-generational viewing.

A fitting sendoff filled with unabashed emotion and romance that neatly tied up the loose ends with a big bright bow.

We leave the Villanuevas knowing they're headed into uncharted territory secure in themselves and in how much they care for one another. It's the heartfelt ending they deserve.

Let the record show that drama takes a back seat to wackiness and multiple shots of Jane Villanueva crying when the term "series finale" is attached to the episode.

It was satisfying and moving and I cried, and as a critic, it means so much to see a show land the creative plane this successfully. Jane has been a balm, and as much as it will be missed, what a beautiful sendoff.

If there's an easier show to love than "Jane the Virgin," I can't think of it.

In an era of TV marked by mean, often evil men, Jane the Virgin spent five seasons honing a brand of sincere, female-led kindness that separated it from the pack and elevated it to being one of the defining shows of the past decade.

It's designed to make hot-take writers across the internet fawn over Gina Rodriguez's acting chops and developing directorial flair. But you know what? That fawning is well deserved.

It's a classic soap opera trope, but this is Jane The Virgin, so the amnesia is all the more tragic because the writing and performances so fully realize how this revelation changes relationships.

While the show is known for its signature twists, colorful narration, and imaginative use of graphics, Jane's monologue encapsulates why the show's merits run deeper than those surface quirks.

Yet as ridiculous as the show might seem, "Jane" is at its heart about very real human dilemmas regarding love and trust and family bonds.

It seems right to watch the show and be struck by the things in it, even in its most absurd telenovela turns, that feel like real life.
