It’s a time of television that I’m more than familiar with, and my keen ability to recite lines from any ’90s sitcom will always be my proudest, perhaps most embarrassing talent.
The pure wit of Chandler Bing, the likability of Grace Adler, and the zany eccentricity of Kramer, were characteristics no other show had successfully mimicked.

That is, until I came across a Netflix show that’s outward aesthetic on the screen didn’t initially appeal to me.
If it weren’t for my bizarrely clear schedule that day (ha), I wouldn’t have clicked on that first episode and “accidentally” let the episodes continue to automatically play for two whole seasons.
The show goes by the name, One Day at a Time, and is based off a 1975 sitcom of the same name. It stars Justina Machado, who has appeared in shows such as HBO’s Six Feet Under and Jane the Virgin. Alongside her is the brilliant Rita Moreno, who portrays Machado’s mother.

The show isn’t at all obnoxious with what it has to offer. It doesn’t try to squeeze a laugh out of audience members to the point where they don’t even know why they’re inhaling and exhaling in a nature that resembles laughter.
