"There is an instinct to resent the mere existence of Netflix's Mr. Iglesias on behalf of the canceled remake of One Day at a Time, as if Latinx-themed multicamera comedies were a Highlander-esque zero-sum game in which one must die for the other to live," says Daniel Fienberg of Gabriel 'Fluffy' Iglesias' new school-set sitcom. "The reality, it turns out, is that Mr. Iglesias isn't bad at all. It lacks the sublime grounding that Rita Moreno and Justina Machado brought to One Day at a Time, but as broad ensemble multicams go, this one has its heart in the right place and occasionally tackles topical issues well. Would I like for Mr. Iglesias to be funnier? Or, at times, especially funny at all? Yes. But I'm a sucker for 'well-meaning,' especially when it's warm and inclusive."
