Watching TV

Sometimes, when I grade, I watch TV.  (I'm less efficient when I do, but I do it to keep from going crazy.)

Yesterday, I started watching Jane the Virgin.  I liked it.  I like the bilingualism, and the way it plays with ideas of virginity and desire, the family dynamic, and it made me laugh.

The aesthetic of the costuming and set design reminded me a lot of Ugly Betty, I think for the sort of pastel fantasy, not quite real sensibility.  But, in both cases, the aesthetic works for me with the show as a whole.
