There could certainly be worse times of a bubbly, ebullient new romantic comedy to hit the airwaves. ABC’s ” the bakers and the beauty” is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: An archetype – heavy story of Daniel, an industrious young man. After a chance meeting in Daniels’s home city of Maimi, the pair engage in a romance so whirlwind that it leaves Noa’s publicist and Daniel’s ex (Michelle veintimilla) angry at the pair for their own respective reasons. They represent the obstacles, as Daniel’s Cuban – American family generally leaves the door open to Noa, at least before certain differences in viewpoints rear their head.
It’s all done with charm and a relatively light touch. There are enough credible reasons why this pair might actually click – among them Daniel relatable indecision ( this is not a story, as it might have been in less capable hands in which one party has it all figured out and educated the others). Bucatinsky is reliably great in the one part of a nasty entertainment – biz alpha, carrying all the Hollywood baggage so Noa free to be lighthearted.
Like many fairy tales, this doesn’t entirely escape moments that are a bit clunky: Daniels ex really doesn’t have an obvious place in a story after her lack of a claim on Daniels’s heart became clear.
THE BAKERS AND THE BEAUTY – This craving for legitimacy provides one more reason the stability ” the bakers” and his more traditional family provides hold on an appeal. This show first four episodes, indeed generally seem to depict a show coming into a better understanding of itself as it goes on – A very heartening thing to see. Heartening too is a show that feels warm and genuinely escapist at a tense time in the world outside the frame.
