One Day at a Time Season 3

Anyone watching? Rita Moreno continues to be a HOOT!

Just started watching again yesterday, from mid-season 2. On episode 1 of the third season — it's good. I always cringe, however, when they do those really effusive happy chant/cheers and dance in a kind of tribal way (e.g. the mom's brother showing up at their hotel suite and doing that chant and those weird tribal "chunga-lunga"/"unga-bunga" dances. But it's the worst when they're around others.

A helping of social consciousness with a side of slapstick. I like the show quite a bit. It helps that Schneider is cute and that most of the other male characters are hot. The ex-husband is gorgeous. It's sweet that the characters are given the opportunity to show a deeper side, too. Don't care much for the daughter's GF; seems to be trying too hard.

It's pretty educational on basic PC stuff, like Norman Lear's sitcoms (he's executive producer). Heavy-handed but it gets the message out to viewers. A total cartoon, but it's a sitcom.

It makes me feel so much better about mass immigration; yes, they're Cuban and the grandmother came in the ... 1960's? But it just shows how everyone eventually assimilates, and we get the best from them. Acculturation.

I miss Max, though (the boyfriend from season 2). Dumb reason for the breakup (he wanted babies).

I would but there are no gay male characters

R4, yeah, they need to add one. They have nonbinary people and lesbians so... There was a quick gay toddler on family funeral episode.

Yeah, Max was maybe a little old to start wanting babies, but he could easily find a younger woman who'd be all over that. He looked really hot in the season finale with the longer hair.

Such a cozy show.

Cancelled, sadly.

There were some hot men on the show: Schneider, the ex-husband, the ex-boyfriend Max. The brother was pretty cute, too.
