    The Jane pilot whips through story quickly while setting up all kinds of potential entanglements for the characters. Whether subsequent episodes can maintain that breakneck pace, which helps accentuate the comic absurdity of the show’s premise, remains to be seen, but Jane certainly gets off to a strong, entertaining creative start.

    Rodriguez is a charmer and as intentionally preposterous as it is, Jane has more than enough plot string to keep it going for a long time.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Jane the Virgin tries to walk a tightrope between comedy and poignancy. It sometimes teeters, but Rodriguez is perfectly calibrated throughout.

    A dramedy about an unplanned pregnancy? CW has nerve--and the creativity to carry it off.

  • Brian Lowry

    With The Flash, the netlet has gone an impressive two for two in terms of developing new dramas that look poised to stick around for a while.

  • Maureen Ryan

    It's a delightful comedy-drama about a young woman faced with a completely unexpected dilemma, and it's so inherently endearing that I'm very eager to see how the story of Jane and her fractious but loving family unfolds.

  • Mark Dawidziak

    There is a warm sense of family in this series. There is a distinctive sense of style--of being its own kind of show. And there is a sly sense of humor. On all three counts, Jane the Virgin delivers.

  • Alessandra Stanley

    Jane the Virgin isn’t exactly sui generis: it has traces of past series that blended whimsy and wile, including “Ugly Betty” and “Pushing Daisies,” but this show has a delightful heroine and its own sweetly wicked inflection.

  • Ellen Gray

    While the situations are far-fetched, the emotions are real. And Rodriguez, as a young control freak coming to terms with a situation she can't easily control, or dismiss, is terrific.

  • Matt Roush

    An infectiously enjoyable confection of outlandish telenovela-inspired soap opera (think Ugly Betty) grounded in lovably fractious family dynamics.

  • Robert Lloyd

    It's one of the best things to come out of the fall season, but as a recreational television watcher, I like it too.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    This is my dream for all shows: that they have a clear idea; a way in which that idea is uniquely theirs; a cast that can give a rich, full life to those concepts; and the savviness to use both comedic and dramatic elements to explore and enrich those characters and the articulated world they inhabit.

    There's a lot more to Jane the Virgin than its soapy surface and you will cry just as much as you laugh--and love every minute of it.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    It’s not self-serious, but it is serious--about being more entertaining, more emotional, more garish, and more gonzo than so much on television.

  • Tim Goodman

    Talented, magnetic, sexy and above all else extremely likable, Rodriguez is the glue that holds together the tonally difficult-to-pull-off Jane the Virgin series.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Emily Nussbaum

    In a lacklustre fall season, this sweet surprise of a pilot, with its shrewd narration and likable cast, made me cross my fingers that the show can maintain its charms.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Although Jane the Virgin could easily devolve into a frenetic sendup of telenovela cheesiness, it is a remarkably sure-footed, enjoyable dramedy full of strong performances, particularly from Rodriguez.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    That the whole pilot doesn't collapse into a pile of rubble is due to Rodriguez--or maybe because Jane is so confoundedly odd you want to see what happens next.

  • Robert Bianco

    It's old-school soap stuff to be sure, but at its frequent best, uses old twists in new ways.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Esther Zuckerman

    Where the series could get preachy, it's tempered, and above all, the whole thing's just a lot of fun.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    This one could take off, especially if the humor doesn’t obscure the layers of Jane’s moral journey.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kate Kulzick

    The series finds just the right balance, creating a unique place for itself among the current network fare. With its down-to-earth lead character and self-aware, but not self-parodying approach, Jane The Virgin is a breath of fresh air that will hopefully find a strong and loyal fan base.

  • David Hinckley

    Even by the soap-opera standards of telenovelas, it feels a little much. The pieces at first don’t always mesh smoothly. Rodriguez is terrific, though, and this could be that rare telenovela that assimilates.
