Life as a Mexican telenovela
2 July 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The end of the 2011-2012 season is loaded with a lot of ideas which are developed into the screenplay written by Abraham Higginbottom and directed by Steven Levitan, one of the creators of this entertaining sitcom. It shows generosity in the part of the creators of this wonderful series that in almost all the episodes the whole cast gets to participate.

Mitchell and Cameron are besides themselves with the prospect of being the parents of a Mexican boy being born in a border town. The partners are not prepared to deal with the situation they find once they get to the hospital. They end up broken hearted in the middle of what plays as one of those Mexican 'telenovelas' in which the ridiculous plots involve all kinds of craziness, as it is the case when Cam and Mitch find they are out of their league trying to understand what is really going on. It is a good thing they brought Gloria to help them translate what is really going on.

At Phil and Claire's there are proms going on. Alex, the studious girl, has no desire to go to her party. Because of her parents, she decides to go, albeit reluctantly with a young man that is clearly gay. Haley, in the meantime, has ideas of her own. Not having been admitted to a college, she must first, find a job, and then, since she will be earning some money, she is thinking of becoming independent so that she and Dylan can move together.

Jay and Many are left to their own devices when Gloria leaves with Mitch and Cam. What's more, the two have to deal with the young Lily, who does not want to go to her ballet class recital. Jay must act quickly if he wants the girl dancing. At the end of the episode there are some wonderful news coming from Gloria, which will, no doubt, be explored in the next season of the series.

The creators of the program have kept things moving at a steady pace. It is obvious they keep a tight control in what is being shown, finding a nice balance between some current issues and the fun created for the audience's entertainment. One can only look forward to the new season for more fun.
