Jane the Virgin

‘Jane the Virgin’ is another one of my favourite shows. Although it returned for a new season last year, I’ve yet to watch more than one episode of it. That’s bad – isn’t it? 😆 Thing is, soap opera dramas drag on like dragons and I can’t be dealing with it.

Don’t get me wrong, I was hooked on the first two seasons (before she married) but a third season felt like it had run its course. What I mean is, what do the directors/writers want? Do they expect her to stay a virgin forever? They’ll have to change the name of the show at some point (unless they want a ’40 Year Old Virgin’-esque show),

Sadly, Jane didn’t get her happy ending [at the end of season two] because Michael was shot by his detective accomplice. As I mentioned above, I watched episode one of the latest season and although I was happy to see Michael recover, i just felt like I couldn’t watch it anymore. She’s married and was going to do the deed – that’s it.

Wait, I love how I’m chatting like you guys know the show – when you probably don’t… 😂

Okay, so Jane is a young lady who dreams of being a writer and pursues her dreams. GO GIRL! She’s dating a cop (police officer) but had a crush on a guy who owns a hotel chain previously. They somehow end up meeting again, she goes to the gynae and she gets artificially inseminated by his own sister. WTF?

I know what’s going through your mind right now: “you watch these type of shows?!” I assure you it’s not the storyline that had me hooked… It’s the humour, the comedy (which is another word for humour) and the abundance of love that appealed to me.

OMG! I can’t believe that it took me to write this blog post before I realised a major flaw in the show. I’ve just thought of something – how could she get artificially inseminated if her hymen is in tact? I don’t know… I was refused a smear because of it but she gets pregnant? What?! How?!

Back to the plot we go, she gets pregnant and stays with Michael the cop but breaks up to get with Rafael the baby daddy (who was married to Petra – a crazy psycho beach*).

Oh, yeah – Jane ends up giving birth to the cutest baby boy ever called Mateo (or “Mr Sweetface” for short). She also gets hitched to Michael at the end of season two but I, like plenty of others, thought she suited Rafael better. Don’t get me wrong, Michael’s a great guy – I just felt there was more of a chemistry between her and Rafael. Then again, there’s an emotional bond between her and Michael, so maybe that’s why it’s stronger.

Overall, the show has its fair share of twists and turns, drama, murders, partner swapping etc. but it’s hilarious even if overly dramatic… Sometimes too dramatic to the point where it looks farfetched and made up.

However, we’re all hooked on it. Aren’t we? [if you’re yet to be, have a word with yourself]

I used to tweet about it so much that a few of my friends have ended up watching and enjoyed it! I tweet about other stuff now, though. 😆

Although I haven’t watched season three in full (in case you didn’t know 🙈), I’ve seen a couple of previews and suspect that her and Michael are no longer married because she’s crushing on someone else? 😳

She, like she always was, is still torn between staying a virgin until she gets into a *proper* marriage or losing it beforehand. Her grandmother plays a major role in motivating her to stay celibate. I love her nan, she’s a proper traditional grandma! 💖
