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>

Great Show!
21 June 2003 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

Actually, this show was intended to help newly-arrived Cubans learn how to speak English. The show was in Englsih and Spanish musch like Cuban-American households. The children on the show spoke mostly English and the parents mostly Spanish. The older characters spoke as much Enmglish as they could and _wanted_ to learn English, but as we all know it is easier to learn a language when you are younger than when you are older. The fun of the show was in the way the older characters tried to deal with the younger characters in a new land and everyone's attempts at becoming American while remaining Cuban.
