Stars: Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Isabella Gomez
A remake of the Norman Lear sitcom from the 1970s, Netflix’s One Day At A Time relocates the story to California and focuses on a Cuban-American family, led by a single mother (Justina Machado) who is also a veteran. This show is hilarious, with brilliant performances by the entire family, but none more than screen legend Rita Moreno. One Day At A Time explores sensitive issues like including racism, post-traumatic stress disorder, and homophobia in both heartwarming and heartbreaking ways. This is a show that will make you cry both happy and sad tears, thanks to its moving exploration of social issues and its funny sitcom situations.
