Cristela - S01 E09

Comedy
 

It's Christmas time and Cristela is looking forward to the tradition of making tamales with her mom and sister, while the men pretend to do housework. Among those men this year is Cristela's brother Eddie, returning from a job out of state. But when Josh mistakes a joke for an earnest invitation, he ends up crashing the family tamale party. Meanwhile, Trent and Maddie get some much needed father-daughter time at home, where they bond over their shared inability to prepare even the most basic of Christmas feasts.

 
Episode Title: It's Not About the Tamales

    Cristela resembles past attempts to graft multiculturalism onto the vanilla-fied vapidness of the American sitcom format. But Cristela wins the day with its easygoing attitude and superbly smooth cast. Alonzo has a bite to her wit that is reminiscent of the earliest, best days of “Roseanne.”

  • Erik Adams

    Cristela tries so hard and achieves so much--some potent jabs at broken-down American racial politics; portraying a family whose insults don’t undermine the genuine affection on-screen--that misfires are inevitable. But like the woman at its center, the show gets a long way on sheer effort.

  • Ray Rahman

    The twist here is that on top of the jokes, Cristela has things to say, and it says them in English and Spanish. Fortunately, it's pretty funny in both languages.

  • Ellen Gray

    There's nothing cutting-edge about Cristela, and there doesn't need to be.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    A fairly standard family sitcom that rises above its pedestrian premise thanks to star Cristela Alonzo, a comedian who makes a favorable impression in this series about an Hispanic Texas family.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    [A] solid and confident show.

    The Huffington Post Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Despite the slightest everything's-up-to-date vibe, Cristela is really just another old-fashioned sitcom with roots that reach all the way back to the dawn of television, where shows neither offended nor scandalized.

  • Robert Bianco

    [Cristela Alonzo's] pushing a bit too hard for laughs in places, but the joy she brings to her performance can be infectious, and the authenticity she brings to some of her scenes points the way to a better future.

  • David Hinckley

    Once we know the setup, at home and in the workplace, we can pretty much figure what we're about to see and hear. That doesn't make the show less amusing or Cristela herself less appealing. It does mean that once it has found its pocket, at least in the beginning, it seems content to work inside it.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Episode 2 is considerably weaker than the watchable premiere.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    It’s too broad and familiar to hold attention.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    The show’s classic sitcom format, with recorded laughter and pauses between punch lines, is stifling--too much like “The George Lopez Show” and not tailored enough to Ms. Alonzo’s own brand of humor.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    Cristela, both the character and the performer, is bright and goofy and confident, and she's got that sitcom-put-down timing down.... The show is a lot less successful when it goes for those pre-fab sitcom setups that feel like a catchphrase waiting to happen.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Much of the first two episodes of Cristela feels dishearteningly retro.... Still, Alonzo is a pleasure to watch.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    So three cheers for Cristela and a shrug-and-a-half for Cristela, a harmless but so far forgettable addition to ABC's reconstituted mini-"TGIF" lineup. If only the show had the gumption of its leading lady.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    It tries so hard to be funny, but no matter how likable Alonzo is, the jokes are as stale as year-old taco shells.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Yet as nice as it is to see another sitcom with dollops of heart (you can count the “aww” moments) built around a real-looking woman (Alonzo co-created the series with Kevin Hench), that’s about the only thing that distinguishes Cristela from what once occupied these environs back in ABC’s “TGIF” days. Nor does a second episode--in which Cristela’s sister pushes her to date online--suggest the show has much more in mind than recycling familiar plots.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jason Hughes

    Everything about this comedy felt canned, artificial and forced. The dialogue was awkward enough that the actors didn't look comfortable delivering their lines, the audience wasn't always sure when and how to react, and I wasn't sure how much longer I could take it.
