Wonderful Acting, Great Entertainment, Funny - with lessons from Life
I watch the show every week - my friends & I at a real airplane parts factory love the show. George and Angie (Constance Marie) come across very well as a Dad and Mom. Grandma (Belita Moreno) comes through with razor sharp comments - that catch you laughing when you least expect it. His friends and bosses at the fictitious Powers Bros Aviation are all well cast and contribute heavily to the show.
His children - there is simply not enough about them in the show. This includes a shining new star -- Masiela Lusha as his daughter Carmen. She is an `A' list actress in my book - and is likely to be seen & heard long after the George Lopez show has made a long & successful run. Whether Carmen is the subject of the episode or is just in show for a few lines - Masiela makes her talents known. The lines are not just delivered, but delivered First Class - with great expressions, smiles, frowns, smirks, tears, etc. She makes her character unusually believable.
George & his Team - the entire Cast, the Writers, the Producers, Camera, Sound, and the many others make this show work, a show that is not just portraying a Latino family in Los Angeles, but also the family of an aerospace worker -- it portrays a typical family who struggles from week to week trying to make financial ends meet and yet maintain the health & happiness of the family unit. This show lets us laugh a little at ourselves, including the celebrations & predicaments. This show is not just about a Latino family - it is about a lot of us.
ABC has a wonderful show with George Lopez - I think its here for a while -
Watch the show !
If you are not going to be home - record it, but definitely see it !
