The second season of The CW’s critical darling “Jane the Virgin” premiered last night. I’m not sure how many people on GoldDerby actually follow this show but I wanted to create a place for fans of the show (such as myself) to discuss the season. I binged this over the summer and absolutely fell in love. I really hope the show can keep the momentum going in season two and continue to gain some recognition. The shortened Critics Choice eligibility window makes me confident about the show’s chances (esp. Gina Rodriguez, who won’t have to face Julia Louis-Dreyfus or Amy Schumer).
The second season premiere last night picked up right where we left off and didn’t miss a beat. Rodriguez had wonderful comedic and dramatic moments, proving she’s worthy of the attention. I’d love for this show to continue to find an audience. If you’re watching the show, feel free to comment below. I probably won’t update on a weekly basis prior to each episode just because of my schedule, but feel free to share in the love here!October 13, 2015 at 10:29 am #363636
Just finished the first episode of Season 2! Loved it! Gina was great as always – I agree the Critics Choice Award is hers to lose. Pretty excited for next week, I want Rogelio (Jaime Camil) to get more screen time. I crack up whenever he’s on screen.October 13, 2015 at 5:20 pm #363637
The show has gone downhill ever since the villain fled the scene.
Way too much romantic hijinks I don’t care about, especially as I don’t care for Raf at all and the awesome women Jane and Petra both love him for undetectable reasons.
Also not finding much entertainment value in the motherhood storyline.
Crazy Ex Girlfriend’s pilot was better last night, though it seems like a cert for one-season-and-done.October 13, 2015 at 5:49 pm #363638
The premiere was nice. I think the great parts from last season (Rodriguez, Camil and the narrator) all had the their moment to shine yet again, while Groblas had a bit more to do and did a bit better.
To me the best thing about the premiere was that they rushed one thing that could’ve been annoying: Mateo being kidnapped, and they stalled on something that could’ve been handled in a cliche way: Petra’s use of the sperm sample. Both things played out nicely.
The show is still in the same position for me though, not good enough, but not bad at all. So it’s a very “nothing has changed” situation, and it’s still a must watch for me.October 13, 2015 at 9:45 pm #363639
This ensemble is just great and major credit to Urman for a promising season premiere that doesn’t look to be suffering a sophomore slump. Rodriguez had some great moments, as did Groblas and Camil. This should get Anthony Mendez another Emmy nomination in the narrator category – the voice over is perfect.
“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” was really bad – and not just its horrendous ratings. Hopefully CW puts it out of it’s misery soon and brings Jane a viable lead in.February 16, 2016 at 12:51 am #363640
Any comments about this season of Jane The Virgin?
Is it keeping its season 1 quality?
Who’s whorty for an Emmy nomination so far? Gina Rodriguez? Jaime Camil? Anyone else?February 16, 2016 at 8:56 am #363641
It’s still great. It’s just consistently churning out quality episodes, the cast is still on top of their game. It’s no better and no worse than last season, and that’s about all you can ask for. Gina is obviously worthy always, but the Emmys will never embrace this show. Jaime Camil is always great comic relief and he’s had a few showcase episodes. Yael Grobglas is also very good when she gets worthy material.February 16, 2016 at 6:38 pm #363642
Jane The Virgin is still running on all cylinders. I adore this show.
Am I the only one who finds that Jane has become borderline unbearable? Her holier-than-thou attitude and the way she treats Rafael is deplorable.
The supporting cast of characters, on top of the sharp writing, colourful direction and perfect balance of comedy and melodrama are why it works so well.
Yael Stone, Ivonne Coll and Jaime Camil are fantastic on the series and deserve some Emmy love.
