Apart from the dramas all snappily edited together making it easy to understand, the choice of Gina Rodriquez as Jane is brilliant.
It's a show for watching in your comfy pants. That's not to say there isn't much going on. There's so much going on, it's a wonder they managed to fit it all into the pilot.
The ability to thread the needle between goofy and sincere is due in large part to the actors, and how fully they're invested in fleshing out characters that could've been mere cartoons.
You can't ever say that an episode of The CW's Jane the Virgin is ever short on drama.
It's rare for a show to debut as fully formed as Jane The Virgin.
