Fictional drama about actors rebooting a global-hit TV show that they had starred in 29 years ago for 10 years. However, that hit show was real, and the actors from it are playing versions of themselves here. That hit was Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990)
Anyone in the service/hospitality industry would appreciate the employee/employer dynamics
After watching the first five (5) episodes of Grand Hotel Mrs. Shullivan and I believe there are a sufficient number of plots, sub-plots, family and industry dynamics to keep this series going strong for quite a few seasons. Although the pilot episode leaves the audience with the impression that this may just be another stupid soap opera mystery, my advice would be to hang in there and watch a few more episodes to see so many of the actors/actresses characters and friendships evolve into many intriguing story lines.
Demián Bichir and Roselyn Sanchez nail it as Mr. and Mrs.Mendoza, the owners and hands-on operators of the Miami, Florida, Grand Hotel. As this is each of their second marriages they live in their hotel along with their mixed family of three (3) adult daughters and one (1) son.
The series has quickly evolved into a character driven series and less of a mystery. Mrs. Shullivan and I are glad we hung in there, just like many employees in the service and hotel industry have to to survive.
I'm rating the series a 7 out of 10 and I am optimistic my rating will improve just as the series is getting stronger with each episode. A season 2 is almost a sure thing!
