Critics are universally praising the new Starz series "Vida," a half-hour drama set in the Latinx community of East Los Angeles.
"Vida," which premiered on Sunday to a 100% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, follows two Mexican-American sisters who return home to L.A. following the sudden death of their mother, Vida.
Critics have commended the show for its nuanced portrayal of gentrification in the city, specifically in the Boyle Heights neighborhood, and for its representation of queer communities of color.
Dan Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter called the show "authentic, grounded and like few other shows on TV."
Vulture's Jen Chaney praised the show's approach to gentrication in her review, writing, "'Vida' doesn't address gentrification through a single story line, episode, or a few lines of dialogue; it's embedded in the premise of the whole series and in the identities of the characters it thoughtfully portrays."
Lorraine Ali wrote in her review for the Los Angeles Times that "sexual identity, and plenty of graphic sex, are a big part of the picture here, but the more interesting subplots are in Vida's depiction of the Boyle Heights resistance."
The first episode of the show's six-episode, debut season premiered Sunday on Starz.
"Vida" airs Sundays on Starz at 8:30 pm ET.
