It’s back! It’s better than ever. I’ve seen the first three episodes of the season, and let me tell you guys, this show is firing on all cylinders. Is anyone else watching?March 25, 2020 at 7:31 pm #1203394561
I’ve also seen the first 3, I was a little worried about the transition from streaming to cable but they pulled it off pretty easily. Still incredibly written, with an even higher joke density now they they have commercial breaks. Can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out.March 25, 2020 at 7:53 pm #1203394580
The season premiere was great and I’m so happy to have the show back. Unfortunately, I read today that they only shot six episodes before shutting down production due to coronavirus so we are assumingly only going to have new episodes until the end of April, which stinks.March 26, 2020 at 2:10 am #1203394812
I hope it were at least 8-10.
They should have postponed the premiere.
This kills even more their near to zero chances at the Emmys.
Justina Machado really should have been nominated for this role, especially for her brilliant season 2 work.April 23, 2020 at 12:38 pm #1203443969
I didn’t love the first two, but episodes 3 and 4 were great…instant classic.
Nobody cares but I’m happy this show still exists.April 23, 2020 at 12:47 pm #1203443998
I haven’t watched the last episode yet.
The first two episodes were ok – definitely not bad. “Boundaries” is amazing and has great writing. I loved the episode. And I enjoyed the episode four and I was happy with Schneider and Avery arc.
So far, it’s still a great show and this season is amazing, despite not being strong as seasons 2 and 3.April 23, 2020 at 6:47 pm #1203444524
Boundaries was a great episode and I hope they submit for awards. Too bad that they couldn’t film more episodes before quarantine Bc this season has been pretty great .April 23, 2020 at 9:37 pm #1203444672
Was unaware that they apparently only finished six episodes. That makes me less confident that they will get the multi-camera directing slot opposite the new series finale of Will & Grace, which will air closer to the deadline and will be more of an event than a half-season. They will not have the option of submitting the season finale by the showrunner as they did last year. Two years ago, they submitted Pamela Fryman instead and Phil Lewis also submitted himself. Lewis did not submit himself last year and Fryman submitted the Murphy Brown premiere instead. Fryman directed three pilots that she produced this year, so I could see her submitting one of those instead of One Day at a Time, which she does not produce, which would further bode poorly for One Day at a Time‘s chances because she is a past Emmy nominee and Lewis is not.
EDIT: Oh, the Will & Grace finale is tonight.April 24, 2020 at 1:24 am #1203444928
I think Mom is the secret contender for that directing nod given that it’s done relatively consistently for every season and has never missed editing. If they submit one episode I’ll probably go for that. Will and Grace does have an advantage of only being able to submit one and it being the finale and an acclaimed director but something about it just seems unlikely to me.April 29, 2020 at 12:09 am #1203452697
ODAAT will release an animated special later this spring! https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/one-day-at-a-time-animated-episode-pop-tv-1234591356/May 15, 2020 at 4:03 am #1203482525
First look of the animated episode.
“The Pop TV sitcom has shared a first look at the animated special which will feature Lin-Manuel Miranda’s debut on the show as well as returning guest stars Gloria Estefan and Melissa Fumero.”June 17, 2020 at 9:07 am #1203538396
Did anyone watch the animated special? I did and I thought it was good. The writing was very sharp and extremely timely. Rita Moreno is still a superstar, even in animated form.November 24, 2020 at 3:26 pm #1203867669
