Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This well-written and irreverent comedy series, which is written by Leticia Dolera, tells the stories of three women who are experiencing their own unique versions of a mid-life crisis. Maria, Esther, and Cristina are similar in age, but they live very different lives, which allows for each of their individual stories unfold and progress on their own. But these narratives are bound together by the bond between them, and it explores how they look to each other for reassurance, strength, and support.

Granted, some of the one-liners don't work as well when dubbed in English, and there are some cultural nuances that non-Spanish speaking viewers may miss. But Perfect Life is still funny enough to overcome any language barrier. The messages it sends about the way women can empower each other, even in the weirdest of circumstances, are positive ones. Overall, if you are looking for a mature, sharp-witted, female-centered series, this one will certainly fit the bill.
