    The series finds just the right balance, creating a unique place for itself among the current network fare. With its down-to-earth lead character and self-aware, but not self-parodying approach, Jane The Virgin is a breath of fresh air that will hopefully find a strong and loyal fan base.

    This one could take off, especially if the humor doesn’t obscure the layers of Jane’s moral journey.

    That the whole pilot doesn't collapse into a pile of rubble is due to Rodriguez--or maybe because Jane is so confoundedly odd you want to see what happens next.

    There is a warm sense of family in this series. There is a distinctive sense of style--of being its own kind of show. And there is a sly sense of humor. On all three counts, Jane the Virgin delivers.

    It's one of the best things to come out of the fall season, but as a recreational television watcher, I like it too.

    An infectiously enjoyable confection of outlandish telenovela-inspired soap opera (think Ugly Betty) grounded in lovably fractious family dynamics.

    Even by the soap-opera standards of telenovelas, it feels a little much. The pieces at first don’t always mesh smoothly. Rodriguez is terrific, though, and this could be that rare telenovela that assimilates.

It actually makes you believe that things so surreal can really be overcome so naturally. The series is very well balanced between the "impossible" and the "well, it could happen." It's amazing.

Jane is indecisive and irritating at times, but a great actress nonetheless. Rogelio is definitely the star of the show and is the person who keeps this show entertaining and funny. As much as I find this show annoying and unrealistic I keep in mind that it's based off of a telenovela, so of course it's going to be over-dramatic. Sometimes the story line drags on and loses the plot and attention of the viewer but besides that, overall a pretty good show. Expand
