You don’t feel lost. You don’t have to put on closed captions or rewind ten seconds to figure out what each person is saying.”
The animated series set at the U.S.-Mexico border, premiering Jan. 3, has been in the works for years. But it parallels the Trump campaign, especially with an episode where a massive wall is erected at the border.
