If One Day At A Time can elevate its comedy to match the more serious moments, it just might become the kind of groundbreaking television show the original was.
January 6, 2017
There's an interview that can be found online that begins with Ms. Moreno declaring, "I have no objection to playing a Hispanic. I have every objection to playing a stereotype." Not every objection, to judge by the new One Day at a Time.
January 6, 2017
By taking the classic family sitcom and making it feel vital and relevant, the show has invited us to connect to the truths we hold in common. Sometimes refreshing the familiar is precisely the entertainment we need.
January 6, 2017
The real-world issues give it weight, while the warmth of the family gives it heart.

The result is a viewing experience that's at once specific and universal, which makes for not just a successful multi-cam sitcom, but a great TV show, period.

The newest Norman Lear situation comedy character to hit television may be too good to be true and too nice to be popular.
October 10, 2018
With amazing performances, incredible writing, and genuine dialogue, One Day at a Time is a triumph for Netflix.

I can tell you with absolute certainty that this show is an emotional roller coaster, one where this minute you're crying your eyes out and the next one you're laughing so hard your stomach hurts.

In the end, One Day at a Time is a series that manages to separate itself from its genre to deliver valuable content. [Full review in Spanish]

One Day at a Time acknowledges this pain, processes it, and offers a warm, welcome escape-a spot on the couch in front of the TV. Its defiant optimism and earnestness make it compulsively watchable.
December 29, 2017
It's as perky and pleasant as any good sitcom should be, with Machado and Moreno showing great skill in handling the hairpin turns of episodes that go from silly to dramatic and back.
December 28, 2017
It's a real charmer that shows the traditional sitcom format is still durable.
December 19, 2017
That it does so while being funny, clever, empathetic, and deeply touching (most often all in the same episode) makes it one of the best shows Netflix has put out in a while, and their most successful comedy since Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
August 28, 2017
One Day at a Time turns out to be a stunning reclamation of the kind of joke-laden but earnestly confrontational comedy that made so many '70s and '80s sitcoms great.It will make you laugh and give you goosebumps and warp your sense of time.
February 1, 2017
A bracing reminder of what the sitcom format can do.
January 31, 2017
This is a multigenerational, multicultural feel-good show with a positive message, and at the end of the day it's all about family.
January 10, 2017
One Day at a Time may try too hard to offer something for everyone, but it embraces what matters when it most counts.
January 6, 2017
Somewhat amazingly, this turns out to be a comedy whose time has come again.

When it tackles tough issues like sexism, immigration and faith-as well as PSTD and Veterans' Affairs... -this is as pungent as TV's current standard-bearer, CBS's Mom, and just as memorable.
January 5, 2017
The new One Day at a Time, arriving on Friday, is lively and full of voice, a rare reboot that's better than the original. It's a throwback in the best sense, to an era of mainstream, socially engaged kitchen-sink sitcoms.
January 5, 2017
One Day at a Time is that rarest of reboots, one that takes the bones of the original Norman Lear comedy that premiered in 1975 and transforms it into something fresh and vital.
January 5, 2017
Suffice to say that this is the sort of series that makes difficult things seem easy, so easy that you often don't realize how artful it is until you think back on it.
