The CW’s new Monday night comedy, Jane the Virgin, starring Chicago native Gina Rodriguez, nabs stellar reviews:
Vulture: ”Jane the Virgin is a shining example of how much a show can get away with as long as it takes its characters seriously.”
The AV Club: “With its down-to-earth lead character and self-aware, but not self-parodying approach, Jane The Virgin is a breath of fresh air that will hopefully find a strong and loyal fan base.”
The Hollywood Reporter: “The fall’s best broadcast pilot also features fall’s breakout star in Gina Rodriguez but sports a telenovela-inspired premise that’s difficult to pull off, yet addictive when done right.”
