Resumo

A maioria dos críticos argumenta que a comédia televisiva One Day at a Time I (2017), produzida nos Estados Unidos, é um programa progressista, principalmente devido ao seu elenco, sua tentativa de representar fielmente uma minoria étnica e sua coragem em avançar relevantes e sensíveis tópicos. A fim de qualificar tais suposições, revisaremos a história da fórmula da sitcom, particularmente o gênero freqüentemente definido como comédias domésticas dos anos 1970, e argumentaremos que suas restrições formais impõem limites intransponíveis em uma agenda progressista. Por fim, procedemos com uma análise estética da primeira temporada, a qual demonstra  que a necessidade do gênero por estabilidade familiar - o que chamamos de hierarquia de valores - compromete a dramatização do conteúdo político. Esperamos que, examinando a história do gênero e analisando a estética do programa, possamos contribuir para uma melhor compreensão de suas deficiências e compromissos inerentes.
