You may remember that I made Jane the Virgin my Kool-Aid Pick on a recent episode of our podcast, and hoo boy, I’m in deep now. Much like Rogelio, I’m ultimately #TeamJane, and I’m excited to share my excitement with you all in this telenovela-fueled Jane the Virgin Edition of our Friday Link Roundup.
- Noted TV expert and my favourite TV critic, Maureen Ryan, has an excellent piece on how Peak TV is really about Peak Comedy, or as she calls it The Unicorn Age of Television Comedy, and she includes Jane the Virgin as a shining example of the fine work that is being done in television comedy today.
- The glowing heart of the show belongs with it’s immensely talented lead actor, the Golden Globe–winning Gina Rodriguez. Her Golden Globe was an important moment in the ongoing fight for representation for the Latina/o community in Hollywood.
