CGiii Comment

Usually, we wait until the whole season has been watched before the review is posted...alas, since we will be watching no more, the time to post is now.

Almost entirely spoken in Spanglish...when the dialogue is this bad, the acting can't be too far behind. The acting is excruciating...director's notes: Be aggressive, shout your lines and don't look into the camera!

Stereotypes and lesbians, gentrification and the generational/cultural divide are all on the menu...served with great big dollops of preachingly meek and weak writing. As for the twins, the melodrama is centred around them...they could not be more different, suspend evey ounce of disbelief in order to believe!!!

So...if it's an ear-bashing you're after...this is the show for you!

Vida is about two estranged Mexican-American sisters from the Eastside of Los Angeles who couldn't be more different. Circumstances force them to return home where they are confronted by the past and surprising truth about their mother's identity.
