"It quite literally only took 15 minutes into Vida's series premiere last year for me to become hooked. The Tanya Saracho-created show returned for its second season back in May, and it centers on two Mexican-American sisters who go back to their old neighborhood in East Los Angeles to take over their late mother's bar. Aside from being an amazing example of representation — the entire cast (and the writers' room) is Latinx, more than half of them are women, and a handful of the show's main characters are queer — the show does a phenomenal job of showcasing how complex family relationships can be while also touching on issues like gentrification, class differences, grief, and homophobia. If you haven't marathoned through all 16 episodes yet, I suggest you make this a weekend to-do, pronto."
