11 GIFs That Perfectly Explain What Happens When You Watch TV With A Latina Mom

You tell yourself it’ll be fine, that just because last time was a disaster doesn’t mean this time has to be. That’s right. You’re about to watch TV with your Latina mom.

No matter how many times you tell yourself you’ll never watch TV with her again, you always find yourself back on the couch, hiding your face behind your hands. It’s fine, it happens. We won’t judge you! We’ll just commiserate. Here are 11 GIFs that perfectly describe what it’s like to watch TV with a Latina mom:

1. She insists on listening with the volume at full blast.

It’s never loud enough, and she can never hear.

2. She yells at anyone who walks in the room during the show.

You’re humiliated for your brother and papi and the family dog, but honestly, THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO WALK INTO A WAR ZONE.

3. She basically repeats every single thing you’ve literally just seen.

You have to constantly say, “MA! You know I’m watching the same thing, right?” And so then she directs her yelling at you.

4. She gets mad at you for talking during the commercial breaks.

It shouldn’t matter because they are COMMERCIAL BREAKS, but to your mother, you’re still disrupting “el show.”

5. She talks about the characters as if they’re real people.

No matter how many times you try to reason with your mother and explain that they aren’t real people, she refuses to listen.

6. She pauses every five minutes to go to the bathroom and acts like it’s not a big deal.

Take a deep breath. Relax. Try not to flip out on your mother because WHO IN THE WORLD HAS TO PEE EVERY FIVE MINUTES?!

7. She asks you for an IMDb rundown of every single actor that pops up.

You try so hard to be patient and answer every question, but when your mom makes a big deal about the actor playing “silent background due #2,” it takes everything inside of you to not flip your lid.

8. There are times she asks you to recap the entire plot. Again. And again.

“Why is that man holding a gun?” “Y esa mujer, who is she?” “What show is this?” MOM!

9. Sometimes you find out she’s been watching episodes without you, even though she INSISTS you watch together.

HOW. DARE. SHE.

10. …And because she’s ahead, she then SPOILS the episode for you.

But, if you’re being honest, watching TV with your mom is kind of the best. Although you’ll never admit it because you’ll never hear the end of it. Ever.

Plus, eventually…

11. You realize you’re doing ALL THE SAME THINGS your mom does.

“Narcos” is one of Netflix’s most wildly popular original series. Over the years, fans have learned about Narcos culture and history through the show and we are officially getting another season. Here’s what we know.

“Narcos: Mexico” Season 3 is coming to Netflix and, like, omg.

“Narcos” first started with following the drug trade in Colombia with Pablo Escobar. The fourth season was instead “Narcos: Mexico” and the beginnings of the Mexican drug trade became the focus of the series. Fans went wild for the show and it has continued to enjoy success with the Netflix audience.

Showrunner Eric Newman is stepping down in the coming season.

Instead, co-creator Carlos Bernard is stepping up and taking on the role of showrunner. Newman was the showrunner for five seasons since “Narcos” first started and is excited to see the show develop under Bernard.

“I am grateful for my five years at the helm of ‘Narcos’ and ‘Narcos: Mexico’ and am immensely proud of what this spectacular team has achieved with these shows,” Newman told Variety. “Carlos Bernard is the first person I ever spoke to about this project, over ten years ago, and I am extremely pleased to leave the steering of Season 3 of ‘Narcos: Mexico’ in his very capable hands.”

Brace yourself because Diego Luna is not joining the cast this season.

Tbh, Luna was one of the best parts of the show. He isn’t everything but he was a major part of the iconic and beloved show. The news is bumming out large parts of the “Narcos” fanbase who have come to love and look forward to him.

People are ready for this to happen yesterday.

Like, thank you for letting us know it is happening Netflix. Now we need to know when the show will actually be released. We appreciate the little update but we just need to know when we can watch the show.

We look forward to the release date, Netflix.

We are ready to sit on the couch and binge the season the moment it drops. Let’s get this together and get the show streaming. Thank you so very much!

The Trailer For the ‘Saved By the Bell’ Reboot Just Dropped and Slater Is Front and Center

The trailer for the “Saved By the Bell” reboot dropped on Tuesday and it actually looks…good? We’re so excited, we just can’t hide it. The series has long been in the works, with the reboot being announced all the way back in September 2019.

The reboot will revolve Zack Morris (who is now a California governor) after he “gets into hot water” after he closes a bunch of low-income high schools. Governor Zack’s brilliant idea is to send the kids affected by the school closures to the “highest performing schools in the state”, which naturally, includes Bayside High. According to the synopsis, “the influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.” We never imagined “Saved By the Bell” tackling class-conflict before, but hey! Weirder things have happened in 2020.

Much of the original cast is slated to appear, including Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Zack Morris, Elizabeth Berkley as Jessica Spano, Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski, and of course, Mario Lopez in the legendary role of Slater. Thankfully, Slater appears like he will be in the show quite a bit, playing a coach to the high school students (why aren’t we surprised?).

In addition to the original cast, it looks like the series has also added a bunch of new characters to flesh out the new series. One of those characters will be “Mac Morris”, Zack Morris’ mini-me son. And judging by the trailer and promotional materials, the show’s lead will be a Latina character named Daisy, played by newcomer Haskiri Velazquez.

Lopez has been vocal about his excitement for the reboot, recently telling Women’s Day that the reboot is “much funnier, to be quite honest.” “It’s got a different look and feel and much more mature ‘Saved by the Bell’,” he explained. “But I think they [struck] a good balance with this nostalgia in the new version.” He also teased that he might “bring back the mohawk,” but it appears we weren’t that lucky.

And now that we saw the trailer, we have to agree with Lopez. The new series appears to be a sort of tongue-in-cheek meta-commentary on the cheesiness of the original ’90s series. The plot device of the “outsiders” (i.e. lower-income students) coming into Bayside High is genius. It means the show can be cheesy and over-the-top while poking fun of it’s self in a self-aware way. In other words, it’s the best of both worlds.

The series is set to premiere on Wednesday, Nov. 25 on NBC’s streaming service Peacock.
