A modern day telenovela

The typical Latin-American teenager has seen their fair share of telenovelas. From watching RBD perform in Rebelde in Middle School, to a million other shows about people staring at each other for excruciatingly long periods of time, the telenovela is a cultural phenomenon in all of Latin America — it is one of the unifying threads for all of us. The difference that makes Jane the Virgin so good is that, unlike with telenovelas, the show is rooted in reality and has amazing actors that make the characters personable.
