Second Report On “Jane the Virgin”

http://gty.im/455776736

The CW series Jane the Virgin keeps going strong.

Jane is a pretty complex character (some of the others need more complexity, and they may get it) played by an actress, Gina Rodriguez, who keeps proving just how able she is.

To no one’s surprise, the Village Voice reports that the show began with a “seeming social conservatism” but is now displaying “a rather nuanced, if not strictly progressive, sexual politics.”  Are you sure it’s not a seeming sexual politics?  To my mind, all the show wants to do is entertain.  It cares about its characters, but has nothing to say.  (Note to myself:  There are plenty of more episodes to come, though.)
