Critics Consensus

One Day at a Time breathes fresh life into the classic Norman Lear original with a lively, sharp, and proudly old-school sitcom bolstered by a surfeit of heart and terrific performances from Rita Moreno and Justina Machado.

  • Sep 24, 2022
    My favorite tv show. I've watched this series at least 7 times.

    Incredible show. When I watch a sitcom, I always anticipate what comes next, but this show always surpassed those expectations. The story always went in a direction I wasn't expecting, and it was always better than what I thought it would be. In fact, as the season went along, I found myself picking out 2 directions the episode might take, and they would take it a 3rd way I didn't see. Again, the best choice. I'm so excited to see what happens in seasons 2+. I'm not Latina, and every episode teaches me something about the culture without slamming it in your face, and making me feel bad about my own heritage. I just can't say enough good things about this show. If you haven't seen it yet, I urge you to give it a try.

    this series brings us very good moments of quick jokes that fit with the scenario managing to convince with the characters, the first season introduced us to the family started a little slow but ends well, a series that you can watch at any time

    I absolutely Loved this series but Elena really did make it hard to watch at times (not the actress the character) Wasn't a fan of some of the forced Woke-Agenda but other than that a wonderful show!
  • Mar 01, 2022
    Sem dúvidas uma das melhores séries de comédia já criadas. O núcleo narrativo é muito bem desenvolvido e o roteiro nos insere em um ambiente muito acolhedor. As relações são cada vez mais exploradas a cada episódios, e os problemas pessoais são destrinchados com uma pitada de humor e drama. Ao assistir a sério o telespectador fica imediatamente feliz ao ver esse elenco maravilhoso trabalhando em uma série absolutamente maravilhosa.

    I believe that it is one of the best shows in this category that has been made.
  • Jan 25, 2021
    I love love this show! Sucks that Netflix cancelled it! I hope that eventually it will eventually make a comeback! Dale!
