The head of the household, Jess Gonzalez (Edward James Olmos), is your average father who is forced to fight everyday troubles, following the death of his loving wife Berta (Sônia Braga). Their beloved daughter, Nina (Constance Marie), has recently graduated from law school and decides to work for Legal Services on behalf of immigrant rights, even though Jess does not agree with her decision. The rest of the Gonzalez family just try to go with the flow, but they find their own problems down the road.
After hearing the creator of the show interviewed on KPBS, I had to watch it. This show was piloted for CBS, but they ended up rejecting it. PBS picked it up, and I'm glad they did. This show is considerably better than most of the pap served up on the major networks, and has an incredible cast. This is a beautiful story about a family that is both funny and dramatic at the same time. (Much like life!) This show is truly worth watching.
