One day at a Time is a reboot of the sitcom of the same name that aired from 1975 until 1984.  It starred Bonnie Franklin, Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli, and told the story of divorced mother Ann Romano, who moves her family to Indianapolis along with her two daughters.  

The reboot sees a shift in a variety of elements compared to the original, such as the casting of a Cuban family, a son taking the place of one of the daughter’s, and mother Penelope being a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, to name a few.  The reboot stars Rita Moreno and Justina Machado The original series was developed by Norman Lear, who served as a producer on the reboot.

Michael Straczynski of Matrix and Babylon 5 fame, respectively.  Starring an international cast as eight strangers from different regions of the world who unexpectedly become mentally and emotionally linked to each other. They learn that they are “sensates,” a particular type of human that has the ability to psychically share their knowledge and skills with one another.  The Sense8 Christmas Special premiered as a 2 hour intro to Season Two just this past weekend on December 23rd, with the majority of the cast returning to reprise their roles.
