25 February 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Gregory Nava, long known for directing movies like "El Norte", created "American Family". The focus is a Mexican-American family in east LA, but the gist of the show is that this could be any family in the United States. They experience both ups and downs in their lives, but they do what they can to keep going. It occasionally features flashbacks looking at the family's history -- which also alludes to magical realism -- and focus on issues affecting Latino communities. The series has the added benefit of having no commercials, due to having aired on PBS. Everything adds up to a very impressive show, the kind that's seriously lacking from most TV. Edward James Olmos, Sonia Braga, Esai Morales, Constance Marie, Rachel Ticotin and Raquel Welch have every reason to be proud of it.
