ABTV Latino Presents: Netflix’s ‘The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia’ Review

Being a genius can be tougher than it looks, Ashley finds out that she doesn’t always have the answer in a competition between her ex-male crush Tad. The fourth episode titled, “The Search for Intelligent Life,” gives Ashley and uncle Victor the opportunity to both learn new things. Uncle Victor, better known for his womanizer ways and ex-football career flashbacks, puts his reputation of being a ladies man on the line when he meets Ashley’s friend from college. After a few moments of pushback from Ashley, he convinces her to talk Ava into a date with him. 

Fresh off the boat of heartbreak, Ashley finally convinces herself that Tad and her can just be friends. Stick once again puts himself out on the line by telling Ashley he could kiss her, then quickly backtracks his statement to make it more of a friend approach. As the episode progresses, Stick signs up for an intelligence competition and Tad volunteers to be his partner not realizing it’s not a physical competition. With Sticks college chances on the line, He, Ashely and Brooke come up with a plan to show Tad he’s not smart enough to compete, by putting on a mock competition. As Ashley begins to rack up more than 30 points, Tad realizes he isn’t fit for the competition. RIght when Tad is about to call it quits, Brooke asks about Mexican culture and Ashley realizes she doesn’t know any of the answers. If we’re being honest here, many of us can relate to plotting something and immediately have it back fire on us. Stick realizes his plan backfires and now he’s stuck with Tad for the competition . 

Uncle Victor in the meantime is gearing up for a date with Ashley’s friend Ava, but 

Ava is only interested in men who can talk about science. After hours of trying to teach him about science, Ashley figures out that the only way to have him memoize metals, rocks and gasses is to teach him through song. Uncle Victor falls short when Ava realizes he doesn’t know anything about science, but invites him up to her room anyway. After an intense make out scene, Uncle Victor pushes away from Ava only to tell her that he is a changed man. I for one didn’t think the ex-football star had it in him to back away from a beautiful girl that he’s interested in and leaves her alone in the hotel. 

Stick realizes although Tad isn’t the smartest guy for the competition, he is a good friend. Stick commits to letting Tad remain as his partner. Ashley realizes that her crush for Tad isn’t over because she’s attracted to him knowing about Mexican culture,  La Raza and Cesar Chavez. As many teenage stories go, Ashley is back in the never ending circle of love with her attraction to Tad and Stick remains in the friend zone.
