Brain-Dead Show “Jane The Virgin” Coming to the CW – Offensive or Not? [POLL]


Everyone has “guilty pleasure” TV shows.

Ones that you watch just to pass the time and get away from the cares of the world.

The other day, while visiting my daughter, she had on Bravo’s prequel to the “Housewives of NJ” season premiere.

Apparently there’s always drama between Joe (Gorca?) and the skinny sister.

I was getting nuts. I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I asked myself, “why am I getting sucked in when I should be playing with my grandson?”

But it’s hard not to be, no?

Well, if you like that one, you’ll love this.
A show about a virgin accidentally inseminated.

A bit too much to take if you’re Catholic, no?
And apparently it’s a big hit in South America; from the same folks that gave us “Ugly Betty”.

According to this:

A teenage girl who is devoutly religious gets artificially inseminated — by accident.

No, that’s not a headline from the “Alien Born With Two It’s the actual plot of an actual TV show that will be coming to The CW.

“Jane The Virgin” is being adapted from the Venezuelan telenovela “Juana La Virgen,” which has been available to American audiences through Univision and Hulu for sometime, reported Deadline.

The original TV show centers around Juana (Jane), a 17-year-old girl who gets impregnated through a hospital error. When the man whose sperm she gets inseminated with finds out, he begins to fall in love with her despite the fact that he is older and married to another woman.

Totally normal, not-so-subtle Virgin Mary references.

Check out the opening show credits:

One of the people behind the American adaptation is Ben Silverman, who was responsible for turning “Yo Soy, Betty La Fea” into “Ugly Betty.”

Now, I don’t know about you, but since it’s on the CW, probably nobody will be watching anyway.

But I’m Catholic. Not the best example of a Catholic, but a Catholic nonetheless.
So the fact that a show with a not so subtle reference to the Virgin Mary is a bit much to take.

Wouldn’t you say? Or do you feel it’s a cool concept?
