Storyline

Pepe Peña is a proud man who emigrated from his native Cuba in the early 1960s. With him came his young son Joe, his wife Juana, and her parents Adela and Antonio; daughter Carmen was born to the couple in their new home: Miami. Pepe has his hands full coping with his Americanized teenagers, newly independent-minded wife, and Spanish-only speaking in-laws. Adding Carmen's wacky girlfriends and lusty next-door neighbor Marta to the mix is almost too much for Pepe to bear! Written by Ken Oswald <@UncleGeorge@Cliffhanger.com>

We Could All Relate!
14 December 2000 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

You know there are always shows that seem to come across television with themes that we could all relate to. However, not too many programs come across so accurately as the one that began filming down here in Miami. "Que Pasa Usa?" was an original in style, presentation, material, but not in theme. It's storyline felt real because we (the Hispanic community) could relate. We all had the grandparents that could not speak English, or the exremely "macho dad" like Pepe Pena! The unbelievable truth however was that many of the viewers of QPU were in fact of American origin. Was it curiosity? Could have been---but it was also a set-up and programming style like no other, a style which went on to win the show an Emmy. This is still one of my favorite shows and I do hope generations to come appreciate talent, in every technical form, this show brought to the small screen. That and the popular, "Estas cosas no pasaban en Cuba!" I cannot think of anything that can top that phrase.
