We really enjoyed season 1

We watched all of season 1 waiting to watch season 2 only to find out that ABC cancelled it. The movie contains how a family should stick together and forgive each other and work things out in spite of differences of views.

Latino Family in Miami

They hit the mark on the Genre, I grew up in Miami in my youth I met many Cuban families, My wife is from Ecuador. I have dual citizenship and yes, giggling she and others are just like that Mom. Watching the Story turns, The Machismo. The love that the writers project is well within the spectrum and of course the humor is spot on. I find it intelligent, engaging. Lewis is an amazing soul. I have had the pleasure in life to have met persons like him. Attitude and all. I hope the show continues, All these actors give an incredible performance making it light hearted comedy to watch. and mixing the right amount of drama. I think there is something for everyone in the story. Danielle reminds me of myself when I was younger. I can connect with all of these characters and I think the audience can also. Keep it going.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (5):

This amusing series mixes romance with humor as it presents both Daniel Garcia and Noa Hamilton as fish out of water in each other's worlds. Daniel's Cuban-American family, which also includes Daniel's younger brother Mateo (David Del Rio) and his sister Natalie (Belissa Escobedo), injects Latin flair into the show by speaking Spanish, putting family first, and putting pressure on each other to get married and have families. While this is not stereotypical, it's an obvious juxtaposition with the superficial, often excessive celebrity world in which Noa Hamilton normally operates, and which few can be counted on except her manager Lewis (Dan Bucatinsky) and her friend and assistant Riley (Georgina Reilly). But there's an earnestness to Noa, which makes her surprisingly relatable, and which makes the connection between the two lovers (mostly) believable. If you like fairy tale romances that mix in some unique adult problems, you'll probably find The Baker And The Beauty entertaining.
