When I was younger, one of my favorite shows on television was One Day at a Time.  I absolutely loved that show.  Imagine my delight when I found out One Day at Time was going to be back in series form again on Netflix.  

They did change it a bit from the original, but the overall concept is still the same – single parent raising her two children.  This single parent is newly separated instead of divorced and is raising a son and a daughter instead of 2 daughters and they are Cuban-American but it shows that all families go through the same challenges.   They do take it one step further, however, and now there are three generations living as the single mother in this case is living with her mother which gives an added element.  Since there are also three generations living in my house with my parents, myself, and my daughter this is also something that I could relate to.  There is even a “Schneider” like in the original show as the building manager.  

Because Norman Lear is involved this has all the heart and soul of the original and his other shows and you know that you are in for a fun show.   The thing I love about his shows is that they are always relatable and deal with issues that are always relevant and sometimes even pushing the envelope (like All in the Family, Maude, and Good Times to name a few).  Every show that Norman Lear produced made me think.  Of course, when I was younger I always related more to one of the children in the show.  Even though my parents were not divorced, just the things she would go through in school and with her friends and boys were always things I could related to.  Now that I am a single parent myself, I relate more to the single parent trying to raise her children with her mother involved.  


About One Day at a Time
This new Netflix show comes from legendary producer Norman Lear, known for his hit-TV shows Sanford and Son, All in the Family, The Jefferson, as well as the original One Day at a Time. This new take on the original show follows a Latino-American family and their cross-generational experiences. The series, a multi-camera comedy, will follow three generations of the same Cuban-American family living in the same house: a newly divorced former military mother, her teenage daughter and tween son, and her old-school mother.

You can watch One Day at a Time on Netflix starting January 6th so get ready to binge because once you watch one episode you will not want to stop! Check out the trailer at and see for yourself!
