Storyline

In her sixth year of law school, Cristela is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She's stuck straddling the old culture she's trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she's trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path to the new American dream. Written by ABC Publicity

Couldn't even finish watching one episode

I thought this might be a bit like "The Mindy Project", which I find (mostly) charming and amusing because it is character-driven humour. Cristela, alas, is stereotype-driven humour, which is to say, it is humourless.

The laugh-track (or audience, not sure which) is annoying (let me be the judge of what is funny), stealing jokes from Winston Churchill (yes, really), and some not-so-great acting made me switch off half-way through.

Personally, I am just not a fan of sexism, racism and fat-jokes. Every character here is a stereotype, from the blonde bimbo boss's daughter to the creepy boyfriend wannabe.

Truly just a waste of time unless you like 70's style sitcoms.
