Fantastic
30 May 2002 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I've always loved Esai Morales and Mr. Almos. I'd never seen them together until now. What a wonderfully complex family. Thank you for creating a show about real Latinos, happy and successful people with real issues. Seeing brown people on tv and film always behind bars or causing trouble gets old really fast. I will watch this show faithfully!
